Greater New York City AreaAuthor of Strive: How Doing the Things Most Uncomfortable Leads to Success @ Wiley Scott’s feature Wiley book Strive is available now. Find out how doing the things most uncomfortable leads to success. Pioneering thought leader Scott Amyx shows anyone striving to succeed, regardless of who or where we are, what we do or have done for a living, or how young or old we are, that the secret to outstanding achievement is not talent but doing the things uncomfortable he calls “strive”.Drawing on his own powerful story of an impoverished immigrant frequently told that he would mount to nothing, Amyx, now a celebrated venture capitalist and futurist, describes his meteoric rise from obscurity to prominence, which led to the hypothesis that what really drives success is not intellect, opportunities or even network but pursuing personal change that’s uncomfortable. Strive shows how you can shape your life and your career, a life of fulfillment and joy, constantly creative and productive, one that always holds the possibility of delightful surprise."Strive. Pushing through our limits, doing the hard thing, and focusing on constant and never ending growth and improvement is the ticket to impact and fulfillment!" - Tony Robbins, World-Renowned Business Leader and Peak Performance Strategist, Best-Selling Author of Unshakeable, Money Master the Game, Unlimited Power and Awaken the Giant Within“Strive teaches us to embrace discomfort and achieve success in this exponentially changing world.”- Singularity University"The true alchemy of Strive is that it combines, great storytelling, great anecdotes, and some pretty profound insights. No question Scott Amyx's key takeaway is to get comfortable being uncomfortable… or perhaps find yourself a different journey. Learning to live perpetually outside your comfort zone is perhaps a condition precedent for success -- the special sauce for cooking up ideas that will change the world."- Craig Hatkoff, Founder of Tribeca Film FestivalOrder Strive: https://www.amazon.com/Strive-Scott-Amyx/dp/1119387302 Greater New York City AreaManaging Partner @ Amyx Ventures Amyx Ventures is an industry building-venture fund specific to countries and economic regions with its strategy pillared on incubating new transformational industries within the context of smart cities.
