Barry Bonds -- Hero or Zero? America's Leading Life Coach on "The Need to Succeed at All Costs"

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - August 8, 2007) -

Summary: As "America's Leading Life Coach," Devlyn Steele ( has counseled celebrities and sports stars. Even as Bonds hits his record-breaking 756th homer, he sees the current controversy over the Bonds legacy as a modern-day parable of ethics and choices -- with lessons for everyone who has to make choices in their own lives.

"As a culture, we cheer Barry Bonds on to break the record at all costs, and then feel repulsed when we find out that he probably took steroids," said Coach Steele. "The battle over steroids is a battle of values. There is a huge disconnect in American life between chasing beauty, strength and success at all costs and what really creates happiness, which is self-discipline and true achievement."
