A message To Parrents
A Startling number of young people say they aren't motivated to achieve, dont know how ot plan or make decisions, and don;t feel a sense of purpose. Thats why Stuart Johnson created the SUCCESS Foundation. he believes that young men and woman thrive best when they first understand themselves and then apply that knowledge to the world around them. He wanted a way to illustrate teh importance of clarifying goals, practicing the small efforts necessary for success, and accepting responsibility for one's own destiny.
We believe that every teen needs to be directed toward a path that enables them to achieve their goals, pursue careers, and become productive citizens. The tools for enhancing skills such as goal setting, dream building, self motivation,time management, and creating high self-esteem and a sense of purpose are so very important but often not taught in school. The SUCCESS Foundation believes that providing today's youth with resources such as SUCCESS for Teens will help them reach their full potential.
I encourage you to share teh fundamental life-skills and personal-development philosophies found in these pages with your teen. Together, we can help make a difference in the lives of our children.
