Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

It’s 10 a.m. Saturday morning outside the local ice-cream parlor in small-town, U.S.A. A young man named Oscar excitedly awaits his first meeting with his new mentor. Being raised by his mother, a single parent, Oscar looks forward to spending time with a positive, supportive, male role model.

Little does he know that the person he is about to meet will change his life forever.

Oscar is not a bad kid. He is what the local mentoring program considers an "at-risk" youth. Without the loving attention and encouraging influence he needs at this early time in his life, he may get sucked into a rough and tumble "street" education. This could possibly happen through the acceptance he would feel as a member of a gang, rather than from a role model who could mold his young character in a more positive manner.

The program where his mother has placed him is the talk of the town. Everyone’s buzzing about the quality of the people that the organization attracts, and the extensive background checks they perform. Having met the mentor, Roy, in person, Oscar’s mother knows her son is in great hands.

Oscar stands there in his t-shirt with "Hot Shot" printed on the front, watching every passing car with anticipation that the next one will bring his new friend.

The young man’s eyes light up as he watches a brand new Mercedes Benz, glistening in the sunlight, roll up and stop right in front of him. The window rolls down with the touch of a switch, and a kindly looking older man says, in a friendly voice, "You must be Oscar, the young man I have an appointment with."

The boy watches, wide-eyed, as the man gets out of the car. "I’m Roy," he volunteers. Oscar is too dumbfounded to acknowledge the introduction.

"Wow!" the boy says. "You must be rich. How did you get that way?"

"Just the fact that you asked me that question means chances are one day you’ll be rich too," the older man says with a grin.

"I want to be rich," the boy answers smiling. "What do I do first?"

"The real question is, what do you do last?" Roy says.

"Last?" Oscar asks, amazed.

"Yes," continues the mentor, in a warm and friendly tone. "Success is all about following through and taking action on your ideas. You see, most people work hard. They’re excited by wonderful ideas with great potential. However, very few actually follow through on their ideas with any sort of sustained effort."

"I have an idea!" Oscar exclaims.

"That’s great! Are you willing to do what it takes to make it a reality?"

"I sure am!" Oscar replies. "I don’t know a lot about business, but I have an idea I’d look mighty good in that car of yours!"

The businessman holds back a smile and asks Oscar, "Do you know why most people don’t follow through on their ideas?"

The boy shrugs.

"FEAR, plain and simple. And it’s usually because we’re afraid of one of two things—fear of success or fear of failure. There is only one way I know of to conquer one’s fears and that is to meet them HEAD ON and work through the doubts."

The businessman reaches into his vest pocket, pulls out a card, and hands it to the boy, saying "You see, son, if you believe it, you CAN achieve it. Just keep taking steps toward your goals. The boy looks down at the card and reads it.
