Have you ever heard the expression “Let your conscience be your guide”? Donnell White is a man determined to ease the guilt of his conscience by volunteering as a mentor at a detention center full of high-risk teens. The message he conveys to them is that the stumbling blocks in their lives can be used as stepping stones to turn things around. Donnell thought he’d seen and heard it all, but one teen named Brandon Bright showed him otherwise. Turns out, Brandon is a roller-coaster ride that Donnell forgot to fasten his seat belt on. In the process of trying to help Brandon turn his life around, Donnell’s life is changed in ways he couldn’t have imagined. In a classic case of the teacher becoming the student, this book brings to life the age-old saying “You’re never too old to learn.”
For Darnell Wright, change is not only inevitable?it?s required. Where others see destitution, desperation, and despair, he sees opportunity and optimism. As a speaker, author, and change agent, Darnell is best known for helping others transform into their authentic selves through strategic shifting of the mind. As a mentor to many, he?s not only mastered the art of reaching a demographic that many consider untouchable, but he?s also been successful at getting them to think differently and, in turn, act differently, catapulting them to a life of destiny and purpose fulfillment.His innate passion to go out into the world and inspire those who may be struggling with the same issues he has overcome is about much more than motivational moments. It?s a calling. It?s his purpose. And as fate would have it, many of his speaking engagements have led to permanent programming and long-term relationships. With keen insight and wisdom to reach beyond the surface of an individual, Darnell has been fortunate to speak to incarcerated and at-risk teens for over seven years. While many seek fortune or fame, he?s more than content with leaving a lasting impact on those who have lost all hope and confidence in themselves.
