About Making the Most of Your Life

How do some people accomplish so much with their lives? Is it that they’re just lucky? Or amazingly smart? Or is it that they are ordinary people who have learned to motivate themselves, even when the going gets tough?

Read about real-life people who have faced real-life obstacles—maybe some of the same obstacles that stand between you and the achievement of your dreams. Despite their problems, all have found ways to motivate themselves to succeed. Here are four of the people you’ll meet in this book:

•  Paul, who flunked out of college and into a minimum-wage job.
•  Dawn, whose chaotic life was filled with violence, drinking, and drugs. 
•  Peggy, a college student clinging to a boyfriend who liked her best when she was failing. 
•  Grant, whose drunken accident on graduation night was an appropriate end to his high school career.
