Never before have youth had so much potential for greatness while at the same time carrying the biggest capacity to be miserable. The world is in a period of exponential growth but also a period of tremendous unhappiness. The people most affected are our youth who live in a constant stream of stress. 94% of youth admit to feeling overwhelmed in their lives. The average teen is so listless that he spends nine hours a day on social media. 20% of youth admit to feeling depressed and seriously considering suicide. There have been many initiatives to solve these problems and many more but there seems to be little change. No one has written a book for youth on how to stave off these problems and attain their true potential. At last, such a book has been written by a youth for youth.
