Publisher's Summary

What would life look like if you measured your success by improvements instead of victories? Nik Nikic shares the incredible story of his son Chris’ journey to become the first person with Down syndrome to ever complete an IRONMAN® triathlon, inspiring others to achieve their goals by getting one percent better every day.

From the moment Chris Nikic was born, his parents knew he could achieve anything he set his mind to do. So when he became involved in triathlons with the Special Olympics, his dad, Nik, took on the role of coach and encouraged Chris to aim even higher. Together, they set their sights on making history - Chris becoming the first person with Down syndrome to complete an IRONMAN® triathlon.

Written from Chris’s father’s perspective, Nik shares the one percent better mindset that has helped Chris achieve many of his goals - and the underlying principles of the one percent better system can help you pursue and achieve your dreams, too! Through Chris and Nik’s story, learn the benefits of applying the model to your own life and discover how to:

  • Overcome the mental hurdles of pain.
  • Stay motivated using three irrefutable laws of motivation.
  • See failures as opportunities for improvement.
  • Form a lifelong habit of success.

You may never be the best. But you can be better than your best when you stop imposing self-limitations and begin the journey to reach your goals - one confident step at a time.

Publisher’s note: 1% Better is written in Nik Nikic’s voice. Chris and his accomplishments are the focus of 1% Better, and Chris is a coauthor of the book as he was interviewed by his father and the writer.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.
