Product Description

From Amazon

Prominent entrepreneur, educator, and author Stedman Graham writes, "More than anything, Teens Can Make It Happen is about showing young people how to discover the hope and self-confidence they need to lead productive, healthy lives. This book is designed to help them develop lifestyles and processes that will prepare them for a lifetime of intellectual, emotional and physical awareness and well-being. Every chapter shows that you are not your circumstances; you are your possibilities." Graham, author of the bestselling You Can Make It Happen: A Nine-Step Plan for Success , writes for teens in a straightforward, no-nonsense manner, no talking down, no vague promises. After chapter 1, "The Success Process," one chapter is devoted to each of his nine steps: check your ID, create your vision, develop your travel plan, master the rules of the road, step into the outer limits, pilot the seasons of change, build your dream team, win by a decision, and commit to your vision. Graham reveals some of his personal trials and tribulations in finding his identity (can you imagine how hard it would be to hang onto your own identity if you're also Oprah Winfrey's boyfriend?) and reaching for success even when people have told him he couldn't make it. In his motivational style, Graham makes it crystal-clear that he believes in the teens of today and the adults of tomorrow. Filled with relevant examples and practical, hands-on wisdom, this book should help teens move beyond their circumstances and become their possibilities. (Ages 12 and older) --Emilie Coulter

Format: Paperback
Stedman Graham's book is both powerful and practical.He meets teens on their own turf, and seeks to empower them by helping them believe in themselves. Mastering the "rules of the road" is essential. His tips include discipline, good attitudes, working hard on the things you are passionate about, overcoming procrastination, and understanding who you are. He emphasizes the value of who you are is how people identify you. He warns of the pitfalls inherent in today's society; that is, people telling you what you can't do, - and people inflicting their pain on you. He understands that there are people who will always try to "knock you down", but stresses that you can be successful based on yourself. "Sometimes the things you don't do are more important than what you do do", he offers, and further implores teens to do what adds value to you. Mr Stedman's concept of a responsible partnership between parents, the system and the child is commendable. After you finish this remarkable perspective, read "Don't Sweat The Small Stuff", by Richard Carlson. Both books are survival fare with a focus on teens, but anyone of any age wcould benefit from the information they contain.

I bought this book for my son who is now approaching his high
school graduation. It has been a difficult year for him but as
a parent I feel that he is the type of person who needs to go
through several life lessons to learn. In going through the
chapters and Q&A after each chapter, he was able to see things
from different sides versus a knee-jerk response. I review his
responses and it has been a BIG eye-opener into his thinking, his
concerns, goals etc. More revealing than any dinner conversation
we have ever had. I would highly recommend this book as a tool for your teen to set goals and as a tool for a parent to learn more about your teens thought

This is a great book! It talks about all of the important issues that I wish I thought about while I was a teen. I have recommended this book to several of the students at the high school where I teach. For students that are college-bound the DayStar Guide to Colleges for African American Students, by Thomas Lavist is a perfect companion to this book. This book will help students to get your "head right" and help you to figure out what you want to do. And then the DayStar College Guide will tell you how to do it.

We teens need to give thanks to Stedman. Because his book is so great for those teens who think their mens and womens now. First, they need to read this book to learn how the " real world " operates. What a wonderful idea, Stedman! Keep up the great work, you'll go a long way.

Excellent! I teach middle schoolers, and I know teenagers! This is written right down there on their level and offers sincere and practical advice. They'll read it--they'll like it--and that's half the battle!
