The purpose of this book is to motivate, inspire and educate others. I hope to help others to create a road map to success. This book uses the successes and failures in my life to highlight what I believe are important attributes one must have in order to be successful. The attributes listed are by no means a complete list of what's needed to be successful. What inspired me to write this book? I will try to sum in it up in a short sentence that quotes rather startling statistic. I recently read an article that stated 73% of people believe that their future is control by someone else and that they had little or no input in how their future turned out. That number was 84% for African Americans. Those statistics and that mindset is unacceptable. This book is my attempt to try and change both.
