This Is the Day: Reclaim Your Dream. Ignite Your Passion. Live Your Purpose. (Hardcover)
The New York Times best-selling sports star and media icon motivates readers to stop postponing dreams and start making them happen now because--this is the day.
Beyond Tim Tebow's exploits as a Heisman-winning football player, he is widely known and respected for his exemplary character and personal excellence, which have made him a role model for millions. When Tim interacts with the public, he often encounters people who feel "stuck"--unable to take action on matters ranging from daily life to pursuing lifelong dreams. In response, Tim often identifies a crippling fear or lack of courage, to which he advises: "now is the time to take some risks, to quiet the voices of defeat, to step forward and make a mark, because this is the day." In this inspiring, motivational book, readers will receive the advice and encouragement to daily move from "pause" to "play" in finding deeper meaning and success. Tim illustrates the book's themes with stories from his personal life that will delight all readers, including his an update on his dream pursuit of a baseball career.

The foundation is fulfilling that mission every day by serving thousands of deserving children around the world.
“People have said that I’m frugal with my praise for others. Perhaps it’s because I always expect those around me to give their best. Unfortunately, it’s a fact that always giving our best is not in our nature. Rather, it’s in our nature to take the easy way out. Being better than that and giving our best every day with a positive attitude is what makes us special. This Is the Day puts that notion in perspective. Tim Tebow gives the reader tools to make one’s goals and dreams a reality. I admire Timmy as a friend and a philosopher of the game and life. He speaks from experience and from the heart.”
—Nick Saban, head football coach, University of Alabama
“I know it can be challenging to live with passion or to stay motivated. Through personal experience and heart-warming stories, my dear friend Tim Tebow shows you how. Learn the little and big changes you can make to transform your life and, in the exciting process, impact the world around you!”
—Robin Roberts, Good Morning America
“Often, we connect the phrase ‘follow your dreams’ into self-oriented goals we want to accomplish. Tim Tebow is all about living your dreams, but in a way that’s meaningful—not just to become rich or famous or to look or feel good. This Is the Day is about becoming the person God created you to be and living a life filled with purpose.”
—Richard Petty, seven-time NASCAR Championship winner
“No matter your gender, how old you are, your background, how much money you have (or don’t) in the bank, there’s something for everyone to enjoy in this book. Find practical ways to start living a life that means something instead of letting life keep you down.”
—Jamie Foxx, Oscar and Grammy Award winner
“I have followed Tim Tebow for many years and have always been so grateful for his strong, unswerving Christian testimony. His boldness and strength of character consistently inspire those around him, and his new book, This Is the Day, will continue to inspire many more. The Bible encourages us to make the most of the time we are given. With Jesus Christ at the center of our lives, there is no limit to what He can accomplish through us.”
—Franklin Graham, president and CEO of Samaritan’s Purse and the BGEA
