Ten Seconds of Boldness: The Essential Guide to Solving Problems and Building Self-Confidence

One of the Most Practical and Effective Personal Growth Books in Years

Inspired by decades of personal experience overcoming everything from life’s ups and downs and addiction to battling his own inner critics that constantly threatened his self-confidence, Shawn Langwell delivers one of the most authentic, practical, and powerful, personal growth books in years. He says, “I wrote this book because I don’t want to die with any regrets.”

After thirty years of success in media sales, Shawn hit the biggest sales slump of his career and feared he’d lose his job. But armed with a black Sharpie, a Post-it note, and the conviction to win again, he fought back.

He wrote these four words: Ten Seconds of Boldness on a Post-it note and put it on the wall by his phone at work. The rest is history.

Ten Seconds of Boldness outlines a simple yet transformational five-step method to move you from where you are to where you want to be in a way that is purposeful, meaningful, and lasting. Through personal experience and insights from influential leaders across the nation, Shawn Langwell will help you uncover the courage you need to live the life of your dreams.

Buckle up and enjoy the ride!
