Overview
You don't have to be a genius or a visionary or even a college graduate to be successful. You just need a framework and a dream. —Michael Dell Each of us has a purpose—a reason for the decisions we make and the actions we take. Sometimes it only lives within us, unacknowledged and unidentified. Other times, our purpose is a force to be reckoned with. It drives us to set goals and accomplish them. It helps us build our own path. It enables us to recognize our success and celebrate it. Being successful down the road means identifying your purpose—and values—now. In Get a LEG Up, Manny Padro shares how he's achieved a life of happiness and fulfillment by learning to recognize his purpose and value system through behavior modification. Growing up in a low-income neighborhood, Manny relied on mentors to point him in a successful direction. Now, along with insight from dozens of other mentors, he's sharing what he's learned as a toolkit for young adults to gain a jump-start on a successful life. With exercises, anecdotes, and strategies for living each day with intention, this is the workbook you need to create healthy habits and commit to the future you want.
