Myles Jury Seeks Self-Help Guidance

UFC Lightweight Myles Jury Seeks Guidance From Self-Help Guru Tony Robbins
By: Jeff Harder, Fightland
"Fightland: I know that you have a big affinity for reading books in the self-help/business/motivational/self-empowerment genre. What’s at the heart of the interest in those types of books and those types of authors?
Myles Jury: I’m always trying to evolve and I’m always trying to learn new things. The mind is the most powerful weapon you have. I read everything from self-improvement books to business books, investing—whatever topics interest me, I research ‘em and I learn about ‘em.

"If a book is a tool to answer a question that you have, what are the books that have been of biggest benefit to you, that you still remember long after reading them?
For self-improvement, I’d say Tony Robbins’s Awakening the Giant Within. And for investing, I’d recommend Rich Dad, Poor Dad, as a beginner’s book. I’ve read a bunch of books that span off those topics, about different types of real estate investment, but those are two of the books that really opened up my eyes."
