AVAILABLE SOON – Young Achiever Playbook: Planning To Achieve

YAP Front Cover

NURTURE. LEARN. WORK. LEAD. These are the Four Pillars of Prosperity. To lay the foundation for the kind of achievement that leads to prosperity, Author J. A. Faulkerson believes Young Achievers must:

  • Embrace their obligations as friends and prospective spouses and parents, knowing the quality of these relationships leads to universal understanding, reconciliation and peace;
  • Develop an appreciation for lifelong learning, knowing a scholastic focus sets the stage for future prosperity;
  • Adopt an entrepreneurial mindset, knowing passions can be packaged for value and profit; and
  • Change communities for the better, knowing selfless investments of time, talent, treasure and testimony do more to unite than divide.

Throughout the pages of Young Achiever Playbook: Planning To Achieve, J. A. bears his soul, recounting how an arthritic hip condition, and the end of his athletic career, fostered a newfound commitment to becoming better in all of these areas. He describes the process he used to develop an Adult LIFE Vision, and how this vision allowed him to pursue roles that are synonymous with laying firmer foundations for prosperous living.

Ultimately, J. A. Faulkerson lets Young Achievers know prosperity is not only measured in dollars and cents. It is also measured by the consideration and concern that causes them to care about others, and the righteous actions they take to overcome obstacles and achieve desirable outcomes.

The Principles of L.I.F.E.



Living new-headshot-ovalin the Washington, DC/Metro area has been one of the highlights of my life. Besides being a hop and a skip from President Barack and First Lady Michelle, I am also closer to family, friends and relatives. What more could a man want? But, for me, going through the relocation process is more than just moving from one city to another.  It also affords me the time I need to reflect, dig deep to catalog the messages that could potentially impact other people’s lives for the better.

As many of you know, I am passionate about entertaining, educating and enlightening others.  That’s why I founded Culturally Coded Content as a creative writing and strategic planning firm.  In the past, I have been known to speak out, and write, about various topics.  However, the two topics that I am most passionate about are Positive Youth Development and Prosperity (both temporal and eternal).

According to Wikipedia.comPositive Youth Development refers to “intentional efforts of other youth, adults, communities, government agencies and schools to provide opportunities for youth to enhance their interests, skills, and abilities.  And Prosperity, both temporal and eternal, is securely connected to the favor one receives from a transformative and merciful Creator.  When the two topics are meshed together, you craft messages that give children, adolescents and young adults the impetus for leading what I call independently fearless and empowered lives.

And that is what the first presentation in my new Jeffery Faulkerson | PRESENTS series is all about.  I’m endeavoring to speak to 100 middle and high school students within the next 5-6 months about The Principles of L.I.F.E. (Living Independently Fearless & Empowered). Too many of our young people are walking through life fearful and disempowered because they lack what I call an Adult L.I.F.E. Vision.  Without this Adult L.I.F.E. Vision, young people are destined to lead mediocre lives rather than excellent ones.

The first three Principles of L.I.F.E. are simple:

Principle # 1 (Behavior Management): Take every thought captive because your thoughts control your feelings, your feelings your behaviors.

Principle # 2 (Academic Achievement): Develop the maturity and discipline to make A’s in all of your classes, for scholarships are given to scholars not students.

Principle # 3 (College & Career Awareness): Take full advantage of opportunities to learn more about self, college and career.

There are four more.  If you would like to know what they are, and how youngsters can use all seven to do L.I.F.E. the right way, email me at culturallycodedcontent@gmail.com to discuss pricing and scheduling.

Come on, y’all!

Let’s do L.I.F.E. together.

Thank you in advance for your consideration.
