Michael Strahan is one of the most accomplished sports and media personalities in the U.S.. He was a standout defensive player in the National Football League of his generation, and then successfully transformed himself into a television host as co-anchor on America's popular morning show 'LIVE with Kelly and Michael'.
In his recently published book ‘Wake Up Happy - The dream big, win big guide to transforming your life’, there is a chapter entitled ‘Why Play should be the Work of Adults’. The themes of this chapter resonate well with the Slingshot premise about the importance of retaining our childlike thinking. Consider this passage: "It's a kind of irony that any professional athlete realizes sooner rather than later: we "play" sports, but when you are fortunate to make your living as an athlete, there comes a point where the fun part of it all can go out the window. But reconnecting to play is fundamental to success, no matter what you do for a living."
