The SUCCESS Foundation's mission is to help teens develop these skills so they may reach their full potential.

our PhiLosoPhy

The SUCCESS Foundation believes the principles of personal development offer a blueprint for the actions and attitudes that result in individual success and achievement. Our belief is demonstrated by the Foundation's flagship product, SUCCESS for TeensTM, a book and abridged CD serving to help youth practice and incorporate these actions and attitudes into their lives, giving them a foundation for success.

The SUCCESS Foundation was launched by Stuart Johnson in 2008 to provide teens with the kind of personal-development resources that helped him achieve success. At age 15, Johnson was given David Schwartz's The Magic of Thinking Big, which began his own personal-development journey. That book led him to read other personaldevelopment classics, including Think & Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill, Success through a Positive Mental Attitude by W. Clement Stone and many others. Through these books, he discovered that working on himself first best prepared him to take on the challenges of business and life. Today, he is a highly successful businessman--the owner of Video Plus®, SUCCESS MediaTM and SUCCESS magazine.

ABOUT SUCCESS FOR TEENS

SUCCESS for TeensTM has one goal: Helping teens transition from passively waiting for life to happen to understanding they can--and, in fact, must--pursue their dreams now. This book tells them how to begin. Through a series of real-life experiences from their peers combined with thoughtprovoking exercises, teens will quickly grasp the necessity and reward of clarifying goals, practicing the small efforts necessary for success, and boldly accepting responsibility for their own destinies. Based on Jeff Olson's best-selling book The Slight Edge®, the SUCCESS for Teens book and abridged CD make the slight edge philosophy come to life for today's youth. Teens will learn that they can create the life they want, no matter how difficult it may seem, by understanding how small, positive steps make a difference over time. SUCCESS for Teens guides readers and listeners through the eight principles of The Slight Edge:

WHAT PEOPlE ARE SAyINg

"SUCCESS for Teens is relevant to how I think and feel about my possibilities--they are endless. This book gives you the understanding of how to do that... incredible read!!"

Stedman Graham Author, educator and entrepreneur, and author of New York Times best-seller, Teens Can Make It Happen

"SUCCESS for Teens offers practical advice and guidance for today's teens about how to excel in the quick-paced world we live in. The book is current and action-oriented, encouraging a proactive approach to self development. I particularly like the chapter on `Everything Starts with Small Steps,' as the message appropriately places the emphasis on detail, hard work and the importance of building toward reaching goals the right way. The tone throughout the book is one of positivism. It is an excellent tool and one that high-school and college students can easily read and relate to immediately."

Scott devine Director of Athletics and Recreation St. Mary's College of Maryland

"Kids these days are afraid to laugh at themselves, to get the wrong answer or do things independent of other people's processes. SUCCESS for Teens helps them not be afraid to speak their voice. It's building their self-esteem and shows them that it's the little areas of life that make all the difference in the world. The book is about believing in who you are as a person."

edward Prichard Motivational Speaker

"This is one of the greatest books that I have read for impacting the lives of teenagers in a positive way."

rev. orenthia d. maSon Vice President for Student Affairs, Project Director Texas College

"SUCCESS for Teens can be used as a reference guide for our teens, who unfortunately have few positive role models. The book helps remind them that success is a day-to-day, step-by-step process."

douG darrell, Director of StreetSafeUS.com
