Author Hydn Rousseaus father walked out on him, his three siblings, and his mother when Rousseau was five years old. Most of his daily meals as a young man consisted of bread and sugar water. He didnt graduate from high school. He was convicted for selling drugs and served eight and a half years in prison. But that didnt stop Rousseau from accomplishing his goals and dreams.
In Failure is Not an Option, he shares his story of growing up in poverty and how he didnt allow himself to become a victim or blame others for his circumstances. He stopped making excuses and took full responsibility for his actions. Twenty years later, he is a successful family and businessman who volunteers and mentors in the community. A story of perseverance, dedication, and personal transformation, this memoir aims to help others tap into their greatness to accomplish goals and dreams.
