This book is filled with great advice for all ages, but I strongly encourage people in their teens and twenties to read this. This book teaches that even the most difficult of endeavors can be achieved if you are willing to work hard and not give up. If you’re not working hard and facing problems then you’re probably not doing a whole lot. This book is a great motivational tool that teaches you the mindset that is needed to succeed. It also teaches how to deal with other issues that we all encounter in life. I congratulate the author on his personal accomplishments that have made the world a better place and I also congratulate the author on writing such a helpful book. Great book!

WE ARE ALL PUT ON THIS EARTH FOR A REASON, AND IT’S TO BE THE BEST YOU!
The Story of You is for the Doers of the Dreams who are ready to escape from the land of mediocrity once and for all. On this exciting journey, Mark Minard shares his own story of early heartache and bad decisions – and how those experiences left him trapped in anger, fear, and mediocrity. But his continued search for answers and solutions also led to his discovery that he was not trapped – he had a choice. The Story of You dives deep into Mark’s adventures into the unknown in an adventure about the discovering and living out your big WHY! In it Mark shares his personal playbook of how he elevated his mindset with faith-building thoughts, and manifested his dreams to the next level and beyond. This is not a theoretical doctrine; rather, this book gives you real-life applications from within the trenches describing how Mark has formed his own principles of success:
It’s okay to be terrible on the way to being great.
At the root of indecision is fear.
A little bit of insanity+incredible faith=great entrepreneurs and leaders
Your “limitations”are your best weapons.
Failure is a necessary step on the way to success.
Change your mindset, and your circumstances will follow.
Emily Chase Smith
Minard learned that powerful things happen when you read books and even more powerful things happen when you apply them. He tells the story of discovering and doing his life’s work and shows you how to do the same, even if you’re stuck in a Weiner Dog Drive Thru at 2 am – literally or figuratively.

Mark’s Story of You is for real! This is not a man who is simply giving you another “self-help to do list.” Quite the opposite…Mark is courageously vulnerable. Reading the book feels less like reading and more like talking life with a friend. Enjoy the wisdom.
