As the first-born of a park ranger and his schoolteacher wife, Sholly was raised in national parks, lived in tarpaper shacks, and initially was home-schooled. He was then educated in a one-room schoolhouse with 12 other students of varying ages and grades. Because there was no high school available for park families, he attended high school in California, living with his grandparents.

CelebrityPress™ describes the book:

 Success is a concept universally embraced but individually defined. Our definition of success truly depends on our individual goals. For example, your goal might be monetary, a physical accomplishment or a moral achievement. To flesh out this topic, we are adding a few comments made by famous and successful people in diverse fields – similar and familiar concepts to those put forward by the Premier Experts® in this book.

 Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome while trying to succeed. ~ Booker T. Washington

 You can succeed best and quickest by helping others to succeed. ~ Napoleon Hill

 The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack in will. ~ Vince Lombardi

 Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal; nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude. ~ Thomas Jefferson

 In our New Economy, the acquisition of success has been reformatted somewhat by business and industry even though its principles remain the same. The Electronic Revolution has changed the economic landscape as much as the Industrial Revolution. We now live more and more in “real time” and expect others to do the same. This era of instant communication has changed the ways in which we communicate and expect responses.

 To succeed today, it is useful, perhaps essential, to have a mentor. Errors will be made, but to minimize them will speed up your journey. The Premier Experts® in this book will help you along the way. They have been there and know the road. Who would be better to guide you? They will illuminate your path to The Soul Of Success…

 After such a successful release, Robert H. Sholly will be recognized by The National Academy of Best-Selling Authors™, an organization that honors authors from many of the leading independent best-seller lists.
