Product Description

From Library Journal

Motivational tips from a renowned minority business leader?and Oprah's once and future love.
Copyright 1996 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to the Audio Cassette edition.

From Booklist

Stedman Graham is best known for being Oprah Winfrey's boyfriend. Even he knows that, and it bugged him for a long time. But Graham, a businessman and civic leader, got beyond that designation just as he got beyond the difficult times in his life. Born into a working-class minority family and teased about the mental difficulties of his two younger brothers, Graham hoped to be an NBA star but never made it quite that far in professional sports. But when the going got rough . . . well, you know the rest. His secret, revealed here in detail, is a nine-step plan for success whose precepts are familiar from the works of numerous other motivational authors. Graham is articulate, and his book will provoke readers of all backgrounds to take a look at their own lives and perhaps adapt the author's blueprint for success. With so many personal anecdotes, the book functions as autobiography as well as motivational guide. And yes, Oprah makes a few appearances here but only when absolutely necessary. Ilene Cooper --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
This book is very valuable and can be useful guideline to you if you still cannot find out your right direction in life. Stedman Graham??s nine-step could probably help you to find out because those nine steps are clear and easy to follow.
Stedman Graham successfully put abstract ideas (how to succeed) into concrete instructions (the 9-step) with examples. It lets us more easily to understand what to do and how to do in order to be a successful person. Also, those nine steps are really practical in the reality and suitable for everyone who want to be outstanding.
In this book, Stedman Graham likes encouraging us to ask ourselves questions. It is good because it helps us to make sure that we are in the right track and really moving forward to success. Besides, although Stedman Graham is an American and most examples are happened in America, his concepts are also applicable in Asian countries, such as china.
To sum up, I think it is worthwhile to spend some time to read this book and find out our own objective in life and then plan to achieve it.

Format: Paperback
You Can Make It Happen by Stedman Graham is a book based on improving your life by using a nine-step process that Graham developed himself. Even though this book is intended to be inspirational and motivational, I recommend it for anyone, not just people who are going through rough times and need motivation. The book was quite easy to comprehend and definitely serves it purpose. Graham used examples of his life to show the reader that he truly understands the feeling of despair, loneliness, and lack of motivation. Once Graham establishes confidence with the reader he begins to offer truly inspirational solutions and once again uses examples of his life to show that it is possible to become successful, self-motivated person.
In You Can Make It Happen, Graham describes various scenarios where lack of motivation plays a key role in the situation. What really intrigued me about You Can Make It Happen is that for every scenario Graham offered an easy to understand solution that made sense. This makes the book not only interesting and helpful, but makes it great.
For example, Graham mentions in many occasions his frequent insecurities while playing basketball professionally. He often thought that he was not playing well and suffered lapses of confidence. These lapses caused him to not take certain shots when he was open and things of that nature. Finally he concluded that he had to solve this problem. What he did is, he took shots before practice that he knew he could make. This would get him on a role and before he knew it he was making most of his shots. This gave him confidence that he needed for the game and told him that he could make the important shots in the game. So his good shooting would continue on to the game.

If you want to create a better life for yourself and help others then this is the book for you! This book goes into Stedmans own story, the background he came from and the challenges he went through in his persiut of a better life. Rather than just saying "charge towards success with the blinders on" Stedman talks about keeping a balance in your life and checking who you are in the proccess. As he says in chapter 8 of his book " do not become so focused on your own journey that you cannot stop occasionally and help others along the way." It is an easy to read and down to earth book.

Forget about Oprah for minute. Stedman Graham, the business man and civic minded leader, stands on his own feet and his advice is extremely valuable. Graham's book is an inspirational look into his own life and if you are serious about changing your life and career this is one book you should definitely pick up and study. I'd rank this along side Napoleon Hill and Dale Carnegie's books.

I love Stedman's proactive philosophy about life and great success examples (the Dr J story is awesome). He reinforces the importance of taking action and having a plan to get what you want. It is the same theme in my dating book, SMART Man Hunting: How to Get Out There, Get Dates and Get Mr. Right! - i.e. if you want to find the right mate, you need a dating plan and focus. You Can Make it Happen rocks! I highly recommend this book!
