Based on his New York Times bestseller Teens Can Make It Happen, Stedman Graham now introduces the Teens Can Make It Happen Workbook -- the essential hands-on guide to teen life.
From Stedman Graham, the bestselling author of Teens Can Make It Happen, comes an activity-filled workbook designed to help teens realize their full potential. The Teens Can Make It Happen Workbook is packed with entertaining exercises that will show you how to work your way through Graham's nine steps to success.
The workbook teaches the nine steps discussed in Teens Can Make It Happen, along with a variety of fun, thought-provoking, and, ultimately, life-changing activities for those ready and willing to make it happen. From group activities to self-tests to journaling, the workbook is filled with relevant and practical exercises for any teen looking to make that journey to adulthood an easy one. You will learn ways to create a whole new vision of how to use your talents and desires to become your best. In order to achieve this vision, Graham stresses, you must believe in the possibility of your success in order to have a strong sense of self-understanding and awareness.
Written in an entertaining and interactive style, Graham bridges the gap between education and the real world and, in addition, shows you how to boost self-esteem, avoid peer pressure, and handle the stresses of daily life that are part of being a young adult.
As founder of Athletes Against Drugs, an organization created to combat drug abuse and promote youth leadership, Graham knows how to talk to teenagers. Whether used as a companion to Teens Can Make It Happen or on its own, the Teens Can Make It Happen Workbook shows you how to take control of your life, and, consequently, your destiny.

The Success Process
The world is a collection of unlimited wealth and resources. Often, we limit our potential by moving in our own small circles because of our fears. If we change the way we view the world, there is nothing we cannot accomplish.
-- Stedman Graham
What does success mean to you? To some it means a lot of money or prestige, a big house, a fancy car, an executive position. To others it means doing what they want to do: winning an award, earning a scholarship, mastering new skills. Others might define success in terms of how strong their relationships are with family and friends.
Success can mean a lot of things to a lot of people, and that's all right. To me, people who are successful when they are fulfilling their own potential, expanding their horizons, not afraid to take risks, and continually growing. Success comes from knowing who you are and what you want to achieve, what your abilities are and how you can use them to live a fulfilling life -- one in which your potential is fully tapped.
"As a teenager, it is easy for me to dream about a successful future. However, I need to concentrate on realistic goals and achieve them step by step. Success doesn't happen overnight, and it is important to realize that at my age. However, I believe that if I work on accomplishing my goals, my dreams, or parts of them, will come true."
-- Lana, age eighteen
Too many kids nowadays don't even know what their potential is, much less how to tap into it. And success requires both of those things to happen. It doesn't just happen on its own.
So how do you become successful? How do you discover your potential and learn how to tap into it?
By engaging in a process that helps you pursue your dreams and goals. By taking action. By understanding that what happens to you is not nearly as important as how you choose to react or respond to it. By creating a vision and a plan to make that vision happen. By taking risks -- and knowing which risks to take. By making wise decisions.
There are a number of factors involved in becoming successful, and they are all part of the Success Process that I detailed in my book Teens Can Make It Happen: Nine Steps to Success. That book, along with this workbook, will help you begin the Success Process. It will help you envision what success means to you in terms of your relationships with others, your education and career goals, and your role within your community.
Like many people, I wasted a great deal of my life worrying about what others thought of me. I still struggle with that, even though I now realize that it doesn't matter what others think of me; what matters most is how I feel about myself and that I believe in the possibilities for my life.
You can't do much about what others say or think about you. You can only focus on those things that are within your control. The things that matter most to you and that you have the power to influence are contained in what I call your Success Circles. These circles are simply a way of helping you focus on the most important areas of your life when you undertake the Success Process. That focus helps you to grow and enrich your life.
Anyone can come up with a dozen or more such circles, but let's consider these basic three: Personal Development, Career, and Relationships.
