- Leseprobe<br>FOREWORD<br>The circumstances surrounding my first meeting with Jake Ducey illustrate some of the reasons why I wanted to write this foreword.<br>It was 2013 and I was emceeing a fund-raising event in Los Angeles. The event was sold out and the ballroom was full. Someone had told Jake that I would be speaking there, so he bought a last-minute ticket in the hopes of meeting me. He was twenty years old and was about to publish his first book, Into the Wind , which he said was inspired by me. He drove two and a half hours to the event carrying a signed copy of his book for me. His sole intention was to introduce himself and give me the book. But the odds were slim considering how crowded the event was.<br>Toward the end of the night I went to my seat for dinner. That was when Jake walked over to introduce himself.<br>"Hi, Jack. I am Jake Ducey. I wrote this book and you inspired it," he said.<br>"How did I inspire it?" I asked.<br>"You say in your book The Success Principles that when someone says 'No,' you say 'Next.' And every time I was told I was too young to be an author, or when literary agents told me I needed more experience before they would represent me, I just kept saying 'Next,' and I didn't quit. Now I am standing here with you, holding my book!" Jake said this with a zest for life I came to appreciate quickly.<br>My face lit up with a smile. I could feel passion oozing out of him. I immediately welcomed him and introduced my wife. While the waiters served dinner at my table, Jake and my wife chatted. Coincidentally, his mom and my wife went to the same high school. But what was more of a coincidence was that in that sold-out event, where there seemed to be no empty seats, the chair to my left was somehow empty. Once the food was placed in front of us, I asked Jake if he was going to sit there and enjoy the plate of food at the empty seat next to me. He said he was so excited he hadn't noticed that the chair was empty!<br>What are the chances? What are the odds that out of a five-hour event, where there seemed to be no empty seats, Jake got the urge to come introduce himself at the exact moment the waiter was coming to serve dinner at my table-and that the person next to me had left early? How is it possible that the opportunity for us to connect happened so perfectly?<br>I believe it was possible because of Jake's belief. He says he didn't know "how" he would meet me-he just knew it was possible that we'd become friends.<br>A few months later, my wife and I invited him to my birthday party. That evening he asked me, "Jack, what do I need to know in life to live my dreams?"<br>"Write it down, make it happen," I told him.<br>He sat there, hoping I would explain myself in more detail
