Excerpt from The Road to TeenVision
Do You Have TeenVision?
We guess you need to know what TeenVision is to know if you
have it or not, right?
To begin with, TeenVision has five basic ingredients. TeenVision
starts with having a dream or vision of what you would like
to accomplish. Second, it's all about sharing your inner gifts-the
special talents you possess and the unique way you communicate
them. Next is finding your passion-the feeling that motivates
you. Fourth, it's believing in the magic of a dream-or that
anything is possible. And last but not least, a very important
part of TeenVision is having guts-the willingness to put yourself
and your idea out there. And there you have it: that's TeenVision!
So who has TeenVision? Everyone. Yes, everyone-including
YOU! TeenVision isn't just for teens; it's for anyone whose
heart is filled with the hope and spark of dreaming--the sort
of dreaming that will one day lead you to accomplish your
ultimate goal, whatever that may be. This book has been created
to help you find your own vision, discover your dreams and
uncover your inner gifts and help you believe in them as well.
No matter what stage you're at, this book can guide you on
your dream path. Remember, the world needs you, your talents,
and your ideas, so never give up. We believe in you and we
want you to succeed!
To keep you inspired, each chapter includes a motivational
interview with someone like you who followed his or her own
vision. These are stories about young people from all across
the country who were interviewed in person, especially for
you, to show you the magic that can happen when you follow
your dreams. These sections, titled "LET'S DO IT!"
will show you how these young people's visions came to life,
the steps they took to make their dreams a reality, and advice
they have for you to help you follow your own dream.
As you read this book, find yourself in its pages. See yourself
in the faces of the kids out there who are already living
their vision. Get inspired and get excited, because you truly
are a gift and the world can't wait to see what you have to
At the end of the book you will find a chapter dedicated solely
to you! This is where you have the chance to write your own
story or write about your own visions and dreams. Each chapter
of the book will guide you on how to fill out the different
sections in your own chapter, but if you feel inspired, you
don't have to wait; go ahead and start writing!
By the way, there is no right or wrong way to read this book.
If you want to read it through from beginning to end, great.
But feel free to skip to the chapters and stories that sound
most appealing to you. Every section is designed to get you
thinking about the fabulous gifts and visions you have to
