Your current level of success (or failure) is the product of the choices you’ve made throughout your life. “Life’s Essential Primer” provides a practical guide designed to help you make the choices that lead most directly to greater success and happiness. Ideally, school aged children should read, or be taught, the principles and practices detailed in Section 1. It will give them an essential framework within which they can plan and prepare their educational paths efficiently, to become successful, well-mannered, responsible adults, while avoiding the common pitfalls along the way. Unwittingly taking just such a path from an early age with meager means, the author was able to realize his own dreams. He now offers you the benefit of his experiences with the hope that your life will become filled with success and happiness, as well. It’s never too late to get your life on track for greater wealth, both monetarily and emotionally. Sections 2 through 5 provide a series of amusing real-life adventures, illustrating the practical application of Section 1. Finally, Section 6 wraps it all up by showing how early choices affect events later in life. Success is a choice. Make it yours!
