In order to live a successful, fulfilling life, a person must possess knowledge in numerous areas. One is not born with wisdom, but learns through how to navigate life successfully with time and through experience. A successful life begins with a positive attitude. No matter what life throws at you, you must be able to look beyond your circumstances to a bright future. Linda Leonard has put all of the experience gained in life, 30 ½ years as an educator in high school, and 45 years of insight gained from rearing four children, into a guide that one may use as a handbook to go through life with eyes wide open. Indeed, anyone wishing to walk down the path of success would gain from the 26 keys set forth in this book - the earlier these principles (or keys) are applied, the fewer mistakes one would make down the path of life.
