Claude Hamilton on Leadership, freedom: keep your helmet on!

When I met author, speaker, and life coach, Claude Hamilton at the Life Leadership Seminar in Port Charlotte, FL, I asked him if he still adopts the slogan “keep your helmet on” as he advocates it in his first book Toughen up. He answered with a bit of seriousness :”Today more than ever we need to  keep our helmet on”.


He delivered such a great speech about remembrance day (also know as poppy day), a memorial day observed in Commonwealth of Nations member states since the end of the First World War to remember the members of their armed forces who have died in the line of duty. The day, specifically designated by King George V on 7 November 1919.

Hamilton-bookI encourage to read his book Toughen up: Basic Training for leadership and success, You will learn the basics to keep your helmet on in this moment of your life. The following is a short presentation of his book on the Life leadership website.

Don’t let anything stand in your way of having the great life you deserve and are capable of achieving. It’s time to take responsibility, choose the tough path, and be your truest and best self.

Claude Hamilton teaches you what it takes to toughen up your heart, mind, and soul in order to

He shares his own personal stories of his dreams, struggles, and victories that enabled him to pinpoint the Eight Strengths (Attitude, Courage, Character, Duty, Honor, Relationships, Passion, and Tenacity) of real toughness in leadership and success. He explains the true meaning of each of these strengths and how they are all critical to success.
Through Claude’s inspiring personal example and his “Basic Training for Leadership and Success,” you will learn how to develop the emotional toughness to carry you through the most difficult of challenges in all areas of life even when it may not seem possible to go on any further, and you will learn why the tough path is actually the most enjoyable and rewarding one.
