In this engaging and attractively illustrated book, US media personality and social entrepreneur Tavis Smiley offers 50 hard-won lessons he's gleaned from a life that's taken him from a crowded Indiana trailer to an internship in the office of Los Angeles's first and only black mayor, to friendships with cultural luminaries such as Maya Angelou and Quincy Jones, to hosting television and radio programmes. Whether it's overcoming your fears, finding your own unique voice and staying true to it, or using the inescapability of time to keep you marching to greater and greater heights, these lessons will help those just starting out on their self-development journey as well as those looking to recalibrate their priorities in order to finally achieve their dreams. Each lesson is accompanied by an illustration in the style of Smiley's popular Empowerment Cards, creating a unique, expressive and inspirational guide - just what readers have to come to expect from the author's incomparable style.

display_description "Stepping into your authentic life can be difficult. There are pitfalls of ego, of convenience, of modern society's pressure to put yourself out there before you've even figured out what you really want. It's easy to lose yourself along the way, conforming to those around you, obsessing over trivialities, letting fear drive your actions. Fortunately, though, you're not the first one to walk this path...On these gorgeously illustrated pages, you'll find the hard-won wisdom of media mogul and social entrepreneur Tavis Smiley, who rose from humble roots in a cramped Indiana trailer to become a critically acclaimed host of television and radio, as well as an impactful philanthropist. Through his relationships with cultural luminaries such as Maya Angelou and Quincy Jones, and personal mentors such as Rosa Parks, Peter Jennings, and Smiley's own sagacious grandmother "Big Mama"--not to mention the lumps he's received through the years--Smiley has learned what it takes to live your best life. Here, he offers both a guidebook and a toolkit to help you get on track, whether youre just setting out on your own or whether you need a course correction to keep marching toward your dreams."
