The Foreword for Creating a Brighter Future was done by John Fleming of the Direct Selling News US

I’ve had the opportunity to see Edwin Edebiri inspire and enlighten those who want to turn their dreams into reality, both in person and online. His newest book Creating a Brighter Future is a great contribution to the literature of success.

As publisher of Direct Selling News and a 40-year veteran of the business, I understand that any organization is no stronger than the development of the people who make it run. Edwin has been a valued trainer and coach in the industry for more than two decades.

The same is true for your personal life, career and entrepreneurial aspirations. I’ve learned that everyone can maximize their talents by gaining the insights from those who have reached the heights of self-development.

This book brings that same level of development into your home and workplace. I encourage you to see him in person or correspond with him as well as following the advice in this book.

Introduction by Edwin Edebiri

When I present seminars, usually as many as a hundred times per year, I ask people to tell me what their dreams are. Most people have a glazed look on their face. I found that most people know what they don’t like, but don’t have a good idea of what they actually want.

Oftentimes people gravitate to their perceptions of the success of others. Out of a vacuum, it’s okay to admire other people, but if you’re going to devote five or ten years to something, then it should be what you want.

I dreamt of being a pilot when I was nine and it didn’t happen until ten years later, but I kept my dream. Think of life as a game of billiards. Isn’t it more exciting to sink the ball after you call it.

The same applies to your life, deciding what you want in advance adds spice to the competition to achieve those dreams. Just the process of putting the list together helps focus; and tends to attract right resources.

Let’s look at a brief sample list.

  1. Becoming a pilot
  2. Getting masters degree
  3. Becoming author
  4. Public speaker
  5. Driving a Brand new Jaguar
  6. Getting Married
  7. Having Children

Those were some of the 103 items on the list put together when I was nine years old after I had just read the first edition of The Power of Positive Thinking by Norman Vincent Peale.

My Mom explained that you can accomplish anything you set your mind to. I thought, Wow, then I should start writing things down I wound up achieving everything on that initial list. But just in case you are not blessed with that kind of focus, I’d like to start our journey together by providing you with a sample list of 100 dreams, which we will call a master dream list.  By the end of each chapter, we expect that you’ll change and add your own specific dreams to your master dream list.

At the end of the book, we encourage you to compare what you started out with to the dreams you eventually settle on.
