Read by the author.

It’s time to redefine success.

“The book you’re about to read is an absolute game changer, life changer, and outlook changer. . . . You will never view success the same way again. And that’s a very good thing.”—ERNIE JOHNSON JR., Emmy Award winner and host of TNT’s Inside the NBA

There’s a message getting a lot of airtime these days. It says to be successful, you have to step into the spotlight, climb the ladder, become the boss, or chase whatever version of success that’s been dangled in front of you.

But what if there’s another way? What if fame, money, and power aren’t all that we should be chasing?

In The Secret Society of Success, Tim Schurrer invites you to reevaluate your definition of success and learn a new, freer way to go about achieving it. How do you learn this approach? With the Secret Society as your guide—a community of people who know how to make an impact, whether they have the spotlight or not. The Secret Society will teach you to

  • define success for yourself;
  • contribute to your team without minding who gets the credit;
  • make an impact that spans far beyond yourself, regardless of the size of your platform;
  • navigate living in the tension between contentment and striving;
  • go from feeling anxious, overwhelmed, and restless in your job to being confident in the value you bring to the team; and
  • discover meaning and fulfillment in the work that you do.

Through powerful stories of people like the CEO of Apple Tim Cook, NBA all-star LeBron James, Fred Rogers of Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, and people whose names you’ve never heard of, you will discover that the success you’re looking for is within your reach, wherever you are and whatever your role.

The appendix is included in the audiobook companion PDF download.

The Secret Society of Success is an important book that everyone should read. It is not only insightful; it’s inspirational. This book captures what it really means to be successful. I am for one ready to up my game! Thank you, Tim, for giving me this gift!”—DAVID NOVAK, cofounder and former chairman and CEO of Yum! Brands (KFC, Taco Bell, Pizza Hut)

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

This book helped me reframe a career transition

The book not only dropped at exactly when I needed it, but the message also spoke directly to a change of attitude I needed. I thought success was going to be in a job transition I was making, but when life didn't align with my definition of success, this book made me realize I don't need the spotlight. I started looking at who I am here for, and I realized that the impact I had was not in my position at the company. Instead, it is in how I build a winning team with everyone I come in contact with.

The other idea that resonated with me is that this attitude is a tension to be managed, not just a problem that, once I think about it differently, I'll never feel the old way again. No, I know that I can make a conscious choice to get out of a bad headspace when I'm heading there. I've been through the book first for pleasure, and now I'm going through it for taking notes and applying. Well, I've already applied a lot, but I can do even more.

If you're at a crossroads in your life or career, you might need to hear about the Secret Society of Success. Success isn't always what everybody else thinks it is. We of the secret society have a different measuring stick, but it's not completely a secret. Come join us and see what it feels like to build those around you.

Redefines Success

In my last half of life, I’ve found myself chasing the fame and fortune I’ve pursued in the first. Unable to reach peace in this pursuit, this book opened my eyes to my race for the achievable prize. I’ll never be enough for the goals I’ve set. Thank you for writing. I’m attempting to “rest” in its full message.

Unlocking a new platform of success for the other 80% of personalities

Meek shall inherit the earth! This book exemplifies the Greek origin of the word.

Praus, which is translated as “strength under control.” In ancient Greece, war horses were trained to be meek — strong and powerful yet under control and willing to submit.

This book is such a relief and launching point, for so many different personality types that may have been fighting to succeed using a platform that fought there very personality.

Great Communication, infection and diction. Stories supporting were diverse and unique from most in this genre.

All can use this book and I am excited to see what the world becomes as this book is applied to the lives of sleeping giants.

Inspirational and Validating!

What a wonderful book and it really has been a triple whammy for me- a catalyst, a game changer and a validation.

Simply put - it is everything. Beautifully expressed and voiced; with compassion, humility and humour. It’s everything I have thought but would have been unable to express so articulately about just wanting to be useful and living a meaningful life.
