There’s no need to sugarcoat the truth; in this day and age, young people need all of the guidance and empowerment they can get. Steering tomorrow’s leaders away from negative influences is easier said than done but, thanks to the third edition release of a powerful ‘teen guide to leadership’, it is becoming easier than ever before to talk directly to enquiring young minds.
Dr. J Victor McGuire’s ‘No Negatives: A Teen Guide to Leadership and Service’ calls all young people into action, equipping them with all they need to plot their own successful course through life and be upstanding citizens along the way.
No Negatives is a book that doesn’t just talk at you but encourages you to participate. Doing so develops skills enabling you to proactively redefine your future by understanding what leadership is really all about, and why it matters. What you can do starting today to become the best you can be. You’ll have fun with this book and discover that infinitely more attention is paid to what you can do, rather than what you can’t or shouldn’t do. It’s a book about possibilities that I truly believe are limitless…if you begin today by approaching every day with the right attitude.
The book features: What is Leadership? The Best Way to get into College, Career Development, Self-Esteem, Service Learning, Motivation, Communication, Health Literacy, Time Management, Mentoring, Pre-college counseling, and Coping with Stress. This is a book that will encourage you to be a better you.
“Young people are well aware of their dependency and vulnerability, as well as the knowledge that they are at an age where they’re about to grow up fast – but they still don’t like being lectured to. That’s why I went for an action-oriented book that was written in a conversational tone, as it speaks directly to them in a way that will resonate,” explains Dr. McGuire, who has travelled the world teaching people from all walks of life.
Continuing, “The key is to not to tell them what to do, but to instead excite and empower them to start building solid foundations that will serve them throughout their entire lives. That’s why things such as fostering high self-esteem and learning to manage time are key principles I teach. Without these, nothing else can fall into place but – when you’ve nailed the basics – anything in life is possible!”
