Little's new autobiography is called "Promises to Keep: My Inspired Run from Syracuse to Denver to the Hall." He says the book is about more than just football: it's about the obstacles and challenges everyone faces in life, and how to find success despite setbacks.
"There are three kinds of people in this world: those that make things happen, those that watch things happen and those that don't know what happened," Little said. "You have to decide what you want to do with your life, and I chose to make things happen in my life."
Little says keeping a positive attitude is essential to finding success and happiness.
"Every morning I wake up, brush my teeth and scream at the top of my lungs, 'Today is the best day of my life, and tomorrow has got to be better,'" Little said. "I start my day with a positive attitude every day, and when you have a positive attitude, it's a key to success - you make better decisions, you live better, you look better and you enjoy every day of your life."
Little was a Broncos running back from 1967 to 1975. He was inducted into the pro-football Hall of Fame in 2010.
Little says his former teammate, and the current head coach of the New York Giants, Tom Coughlin wrote the book's forward.
