    9 Clear Steps to the Life you Want

    "You Can Make it Happen" is the kind of book that everyone will probably need at least once in their life. In very clear prose, Stedman Graham describes an efficient and effective way that people can chart their own progress. While the roadmap that Graham lays out, offered in 9 steps, should have something for everyone in it, this book is particularly useful for anyone who needs help, as Graham says, "getting unstuck." While Graham is forthright, realistic and honest, he never talks down to the reader. His public speeches are made of the same stuff. He currently makes appearances in venues across the country; he'll be in Cleveland on July 23 at the Quicken Loans Arena. There's no condescending and there's no babying. I think what helps Graham in his prose is that he's had a range of careers himself. Going from professional athlete to businessman, Graham knows what it's like to reboot one's life. And he'll be able to help anyone who's looking to do the same.

    Excellent Read, Clear and Concise, Practical Advice for Anybody Needing a Little Extra Nudge

    According to Stedman Graham, success is a nine step plan, measured in part by our surroundings and the people around us. A few essential steps of his book include "Step into the outer limits" and "Build your dream team." As Graham draws from his own personal experiences as an athlete, student, Army veteran and motivational speaker, he shows readers how they too can create a life chart of success, and clearly demonstrates how to create a vision, keep your eye on the prize, step out of your comfort zone and realize your visions and dreams. He asks readers to write thought-provoking answers to such probing statements about risk taking, decision making, finances, past failures and successes and more. This is an excellent read, clear and concise, practical advice for anybody needing a little extra nudge to help them achieve their goals and dreams in their own personal or business life.

    Learn How to Plan for Your Success with Graham's Wisdom

    Stedman Graham writes from not only his personal experiences as a young athlete and Army veteran, but where he wanted to go in his life. Success is a nine step process which includes a vision of what success looks like to the individual, as well as making a list of people who have been influential in your life, which he calls "circles of success" and developing a travel plan. Sprinkled with key questions, quotes from successful authors and business persons, and space to jot down your answers, Graham acknowledges that the road to success is not always an easy one, and tackles the anger, disappointment and challenges one could face while on the nine step plan for success. Graham also emphasizes that success is greatly influenced by our community, business and personal relationships and other people we meet, and we must accept the commitment to change so that we can maintain our vision and attainment of success.

    'At the top of the self-help list, with Covey and 'Mizraim Principles'!

    Excellent! This book--like Covey's--offers sincere and practical advice. It's readable and cogent to today's world. In the same genre--though more biblically based--I would recommend 'The Mizraim Principles'. It gives practical life-lessons from Joseph the Hebrew. It's also more broadly based, but just as practical. Get 'em both! Adults can lean a lot from thsese gems!

    Financial empowerment

    Mr. Graham, I would like to join your team in helping young people become financially secure. I have a program that I know will empower young people financially. If you would give me an opportunity to just present this idea to you without any obligations I would really appreciate it. I know this can work for anyone who are willing to put their efforts in it. I just want to teach young people to be independent and be in charge of their own future. Thanking you in advance. LBHughes
