    My name is Tatyona and I won first place in the "From Succe

    My name is Tatyona and I won first place in the "From Success to Significance Essay Contest" at my High School. I was awarded Barnes and Nobles Nook Tablet and a $25 gift card. This book is exceptional! This book is about what you want to do in life. Kris Mathis wrote an easy to read, understandable book for you to achieve your dream or goal. He gives you 8 easy steps to help you. With each step he gives you examples from his own life. The book is not that long and you will fly right threw it so there's no excuse to not read it. I'm 16 and I read the book and wrote a 5 page essay about it in one week. If you follow the steps he gives you there's no way you cannot achieve your goal or dream.

    This book is absolutely amazing! In this book Kris shows his vulnerability and that success doesn't come easy. 
    I enjoyed reading his journey and what it takes to become successful. I highly recommend this book to 
    those that are struggling with self-worth, fear of failure, and perseverance. In this masterpiece he tells his audience 
    step by step how to achieve their goals and goes in depth on what it takes to go from successful to significant. 
    If you haven't added this book to your personal library; you are missing out!

    This book is inspirational and transparent. One thing that I love about Kris is that he's never been shy at being transparent. I've known grown up with Kris and learned new insights about him. I like to consider the book a resouce, tool that can be used to help re-synergize you for life challenges and remind you that you have signifcance to sucess if you choose to go after it. I DARE anyone to share this tool/resource with someone else to help them on their journey as Kris has helped you on yours. Thank you Kris for having courage and being bold enough to share with the world a piece of you! ~Anedra R. Morris

    I really enjoyed this book. It felt like Kris was talking direct

    I really enjoyed this book. It felt like Kris was talking directly to me. I think that "its possible" for any one to achieve any dream. Now that he has given me the steps he took. I plan on shooting for my dreams without no questions asked. I bought my book at the signing release party on Nov.15 2012 and i just completed it today, Im not a reader, but i was instantly engaged on the message and it was only 95 pages. I recommend this book to everyone, we all need a little motivation sometimes.
