I have read Do Hard Things by Alex and Brett Harris, twin brothers (like Don and I) who started an amazing website called The Rebelution. This book has changed my life, and I have read it and it’s sequel, called Start Here three times each. Do Hard Things is what inspired me to start this blog and its previous version, a newspaper for my neighborhood called Wilson Meadows Weekly.
Do Hard Things takes you through the steps of doing hard things as well as examples from people who are already doing hard things. Another thing it helps teenagers do in tear down the lies this world has built for people our age. It raises their expectations and helps them reach for higher goals than what most people thing teens are capable of.
On the Rebelution website, which, you can find more rebelutionary stories as well as events and organizations teens can be a part of to make a difference.
I hope this book will be as life changing to someone else as it was to me.
