When someone asks how we are feeling, and a simple "fine" or "okay" won't suffice, we feel pressured. Imagine how a child feels when confronted with that same question from a parent or teacher.

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.

"It’s time for bed," said the elderly gentleman as he lifted his wide-eyed granddaughter off my lap.

"But Pop Pop, he’s telling us such funny stories," protested the giggling girl.

So Pop Pop sat down to listen, and soon the little girl fell asleep in his arms. He laid her gently on the couch and then the two of us laughed until the tears rolled down our cheeks. And sometimes we cried. And deep into the night I told him everything I could remember about bouncing back and forth between the Amazon jungle and the concrete jungle.

When I finally went to bed, he was still sitting beside his granddaughter, one hand on her head and the other under his chin. Snoring with a smile on his face.

"Tell us all about your life in the jungle," they asked me again and again.

"I don’t think I can," I answered. "It was such a different world—how can I possibly explain it?"

"Well then," said a soft-spoken little friend in the front row, "just tell us some stories."

And so I did. Some were funny, some were sad, and some were…well…you’ll see.

In the following pages we'll cover a wide range of important subjects related to personal
achievement.  You can find a list of what we'll cover at "What's Inside." the table of contents
pages, in the font of the book.

By the time you've finished each chapter of Flash Point, you should be prepared to take
advantage of the information you've learned to help you speed up your rate of personal

Please keep in mind that the object here is not to finish the book quickly.
Instead you should learn at whatever pace is comfortable to you.  If it takes you
a month, or even 6 months, to get through, that's okay.  Nothing worthwhile happens
over night.  It's better to understand and get good at something, and then move on to
the next thing, than it is to move too quickly and be familiar with a lot of things but great
at nothing.  So again, work at a pace that works for you.

Walt Disney used to say, "Don't just give your audience what they want. Give them what
you know they need and will help them."  Well, you are my audience, and that is exactly
what I hope to do.

In order to get the most out of Flash Point: Ignite Your Potential!, I suggest you do
the following:

1. Take a moment to look over the contents to familiarize yourself with the subject matter.
2. Recognize that several chapter build on, or work with, information in previous ones,
so reading the book and doing the exercises in their written order is ideal.  However,
you can certainly read the book in whatever order you want, since you may have
certain subject that are of greater interest to you.
3. Take advantage of the useful tools provided that will help you learn the information
you'll read much more quickly.
4. As you read, think about how you can apply each lesson to your own life.
5. Enjoy the process.
