Author Michael Carter Griffin advocates life lessons on self-improvement and motivation

Life has a way of wearing people down over time, allowing weariness and fatigue to slowly wash away the passion that drove people to chase their dreams. Author Michael Carter Griffin looks to reignite that hunger for success in his condensed book, “Countdown to Greatness.”

“Countdown to Greatness” is a self-improvement book designed to inspire readers of all ages to find their purpose and embrace their individual merit. Griffin asserts everyone can aspire greatness, but only by recognizing their self-worth and finding their self-confidence. Greatness lives in each of us, and Griffin seeks to remind readers how to discover their greatness and potential, as well as their ability to inspire others.

“I was motivated to write this book as a tribute to all those who have encouraged me throughout my career and my life,” Griffin said. “My hope is that Countdown to Greatness will ignite a fire for life in everyone that reads this book. And if reading this book inspires you, then you have inspired me even more, as inspiration is a continuous cycle.”

“Countdown to Greatness” provides readers with the tools they need to discover their unique capabilities and power, leading them to find and achieve inner excellence. For more information on the author and book, visit
