The really tough answer to the question “why do people use me?” is that you don’t value yourself, so you actually attract people who will use you, because they know they can. They are taking your lead. This book is not just for the person who is dealing with severe self worth issues, though. I wrote this book because I honestly believe that most people really don’t know that they have incredible intrinsic value. The word "intrinsic" means "something that is built in." You can’t add or subtract to it. Your value is like that. It is built in. Unfortunately, events and circumstances can make you feel like you don’t have value. When you don’t feel valuable, you don’t act valuable, and you actually attract people to your life who don’t value you either. Have you ever wondered why some of your friends really do not respect you? That has more to do with you than them. On top of that, it’s just about impossible to treat others like they have value when you don’t value yourself. Value Up is like picking up a mirror and looking deep into your own soul. I want to warn you before you read this book. If you take it seriously, you may lose a few “friends”, your lifestyle may change, and you will look at yourself in a whole different way. I dare you to read this book and not get a greater understanding of your true value.
Why do they shut down? Why at the most vulnerable time of a teenager's life, when they seemingly need us the most, do they stop communicating to us how they feel, leaving them vulnerable to so many vices and traps that could change the direction of their lives completely? If you are a parent of a teen or pre-teen, I don’t have to tell you that it’s a very scary proposition, and there is no shortage of experts that will weigh in on this subject. Over the years I have read and listened to anecdote after anecdote on what the right approach at raising teenagers should be. From Doctor Phil to businessmen sitting next to me on a plane, everyone has an opinion. So here is mine. They want us in, and they want us out. It changes from day to day, but they innately know that you (as a parent or key adult in their lives) are the best coach for helping them navigate through this very unstable time of their lives. The world opens up to them at twelve or thirteen, and they start building walls. This book is not going to help you be the sneaky parent or key adult that's lurking in the shadows so you can get a glimpse behind the wall once in awhile. I am going to teach you how to get invited at certain times to come behind that wall with them. They want you there at times, but you have to get invited.
In just one second your whole life can change. As Mike Donahue travels across the United States with R5 Productions and speaks to thousands of students every year, he feels like his job is not to give them some eye-opening piece of information they didn’t already know. It’s to get them to listen to what’s already in them. In fact, he says he spends most of his time helping them unlock the doors and tear down the walls of their heart, because the answer was always right there.
