In The 8 Success Secrets: For Teens and Young Adults, author Azuka Zuke Obi offers suggestions for remaining positive, following routines, and giving yourself access to opportunities/role models to improve young adult work ethic. I first spotted the book on Mind Key’s Marketplace, and I couldn’t help but think this would be a great way to get out of my summer funk and right into work mode. As a young adult who’s still unsure on how to properly adult, I thought Azuke could offer a couple pointers to help my improve my work ethic.
Being a college student, you have to be organized, diligent, and ultimately, prepared. But what many actual college students do is lose everything, forget too many tasks and, almost always, walk into every doorway unprepared. Thankfully, your youth years is the forgiving period to handle all your mistakes.
In 8 Success Secrets, Zuke has worked towards his success since a very young age. From primary school, to well past college years, he continued to push forward and ultimately achieved his goal of publication. Zuke’s work ethic required a lot of self-discipline, something many people can’t achieve on their own. For him, his parents were great examples on how to handle your day-to-day. Thanks to them, and Zuke’s personal work ethic, this motivational author created a set of guidelines to follow so you’re sure to improve your work ethic, as well.
As the title suggests, the book is split into eight chapters, each one detailing a specific secret. Each will guide you to improve yourself and ultimately your future. Zuke’s guidelines are very straightforward and to the point. The path to success isn’t an easy journey, but Zuke gives you clear examples of how you can be happy and continue working hard.
Zuke also adds mantras, quotes, and exercises at the end of each chapter for the purpose of reminding you of your goals, hard-work, and ultimately, how close success can be.
The guidelines and steps in the book were all based on Azuka’s personal experience with a strict mother, strong religious practices, and the early childhood training of sticking to strict routines.
When he sent me the book, I also received one letter of encouragement and two personally written notes on positivity and success. Just from these few things, I knew Azuka was the type of man to push you to work harder and achieve much greater.
Is it for you?
Although it offered great advice, Azuka does rely on significant repetition to achieve his points. I understood that Azuka’s journey wasn’t easy, and although his life path may not resonate with your experiences, that does not devalue the information offered in this easy-to-read book.
If you are a young adult, looking for a light read or some motivation for your goals, I believe 8 Success Secrets is a good guideline on how to continue striving for success with hard-work, respect for others and for yourself.
