Book Details

Leslie compares choosing a direction for your life with going to a train station and deciding which train will take you to your desired destination.

The ticket for every destination in life is commitment. "Are you required to remain only on one train all your life?" students ask Leslie. "Of course not," he reassures them. "You may return to the depot at any time to pick a new train, or you may re-board old trains you once took but left earlier."

To help young people decide on a destination, this award-winning teacher developed and refined the exercises shared in Success Express for Teens. Throughout the book, the brief, action-oriented activities pose the questions "What should I do next?", "How?" and "What's in it for me?" After describing the goal of the activity, Leslie then leaves room to respond to specific instructions and reflect on how the knowledge can be put to immediate use in real life.

Inspired by Leslie's personal struggle with depression as a teen, and refined during eleven years of classroom "testing" with real teens, the lessons learned from the activities ring true. Leslie hopes each participant's journey will be like a swift ride on an express train to success. "We achieve by doing. We learn by living." says Leslie.
"These 50 self-guided activities empower teens to determine personal strengths, choose a direction for success, and make dynamic strides toward realizing their biggest dreams."
~ Mary Lue Summerlin, Ed.D.
Director of Psychological Services
Deer Park, TX ISD

The activities are set up to encourage teenagers to clarify their highest ambitions, identify wise risks, and develop motivation that will help make them self-starters and keep them focused on their goals--even in the face of adversity. Leslie subtly teaches students about their dynamic relationship with life and the empowering role they play in any destiny to which they aspire.

Teens can take their journey to success independently by completing the suggested activities on their own. In addition, the book has a helpful appendix for teachers, counselors, group leaders and parents which details ways to turn each of the 50 activitities into shared group experiences for five to fifty teens. So, whether alone or with their peers, teens can board the Success Express and move toward identifying and realizing their dreams.

A prolific author, editor, teacher, librarian, national YA book reviewer, and motivational speaker, Roger Leslie uses original and dynamic techniques in his writing workshops, self esteem building seminars, and customized presentations. Besides articles, essays, and reviews, his published works include a history book, the three volume Library Programs that Inspire series (c)2001-2002), and a novel Drowning in Secret (Absey & Co, (c)2002). His writings and teachings have earned him awards from writing organizations, school districts, Chambers of Commerce, state universities and national education groups.
