Overview

This book is written for you, a young individual who wishes to be prepared to face the challenges that life has to offer. Is this yet another book of dry, sterile, sweet-sounding advice? No.
Instead, it offers a step-by-step road map plus strategies on how you may plan your future and achieve your goals. It deals with some of the obstacles that you might encounter in your quest, such as: fear, despair, uncertainty, and indecisiveness.

The text is presented in an easy-to-read format as opposed to a compilation of technical and tiresome advice and with the many worksheets that are included, assists you to form your own plans, ranging from higher education to career planning. Moreover, it helps you to develop a self-vision, to see yourself in the future and to become familiar and comfortable with that vision. The author's objective is to inspire you to find value and meaning in your life, and to strive to become a fulfilled individual.

Excerpts:

"...it is often not the lack of talent that hinders your progress, but rather the inability to properly harvest the talents that you possess."

"...a risk-averting approach to life, just to avoid failure, would result in the biggest failure of all--an unfulfilled life."

    WONDERFUL!!! A BOOK JAM-PACKED WITH INVALUABLE ADVICE

    One of the best and most useful self-help books that I have ever read! This book offers invaluable advice for young people, especially those that are college-bound and want or need help in making some crucial decisions about their future. It includes advice on how to overcome worry, despair and self-doubt via some real-life examples. A great book to read as a young adult who is interested in planning the future or as a parent wanting to help guide a child in making some important life decisions. The advice and ideas offered are well-organized and presented in a style which makes this book extremely hard to put down.
