Much of success in life is a triumph of information. This explains why the informed succeed. The better people are informed, the better their chances are of succeeding in any undertaking. A Life of Impact therefore draws valuable lessons from contemporary issues including Barrack Obama’s election as the first black US president, Tiger Woods’ admission of moral failure, Usain Bolt’s crowning as the world’s fastest man in history, the 2008-2010 global recession dubbed the ‘Great Recession’, the impact of poor leadership on Africa’s development, Manchester United Football Club’s dominance in the English premier league, Toyota car recall crisis, Forbes Rich List 2010, China’s growing influence on the global stage, Google’s dominance in the information superhighway, Bernie Madoff’s conviction of arguably the biggest fraud in history, Mark Zuckerberg’s social networking revolutionary creation: the Facebook, and many others.
But it does much more than examine contemporary events. It looks back in time to capture valuable lessons from the past. The trials, tragedies, triumphs and inspirational sayings of well-known names in history— Helen Keller, Abraham Lincoln, Thomas Alva Edison, Aristotle, Martin Luther King, John D.
