Be All You Can Be: The Cool Kids Guide To Success In School & Life by Patrick Manifold

Be All You Can Be

Be All You Can Be was written by inspiring author, motivational speaker and former professional athlete Patrick Manifold. This book teaches young people about the importance of resiliency, hard work, perseverance, and kindness in all areas of life. 

There are a lot of personal development resources out there teaching adults how to improve their lives, but for children there is a much more limited supply.

This book was created to empower young people to believe in themselves, and their dreams, while also teaching them the importance of being the best they can be, and how they can contribute positively to society. 

Not only is this book teaching young people how to achieve more, and have fun doing it, but it emphasizes that the most important thing you can be in this world is a good person. 

This Book Contains Advice On:
- How to prepare for exams
- Why good behaviour is so important
- How to deal with bullies
- Why hard work is essential
- How to understand our emotions
- The importance of being a good, kind person
- How to cope with change at home & at school
- And much, much, more

The “Cool Kids Guide” refers to the fact that “cool” is not about where they are from, what they look like, being good at sports, or being popular, but more so about the content of their character. Being a “cool” kid is about working hard, helping others, and learning how to be the best version of themselves they can possibly be.

One thing is for certain; this book has the power to positively change the course of every young persons life who has the opportunity to read it.

BE ALL YOU CAN BE is available in both paperback and Kindle formats WORLDWIDE via Amazon.

"I purchased several of  Patrick's books for my children. My sons have used his advice and have applied it to their daily lives bettering themselves and those around them. I feel very fortunate to have met Patrick and honoured to have heard his story!”

~ Jennifer Kouwenberg (Oxford, Nova Scotia)


Parents & Teachers Guide

To accompany his book ‘Be All You Can Be: The Cool Kids Guide To Success in School & Life’, Patrick Manifold created the ‘Be All You Can Be 30 Day Challenge’ to offer a way for young people to get hands on experience using the tools and lessons they read about in the main book.

The challenge comes in the form of a children’s workbook and a corresponding parents & teachers guide. The challenge is made up of four elements that are done on a daily basis for thirty days.

The Challenge Consists of:
- 2 minutes of gratitude a day
- 2 minutes of exercise a day
- Daily learning & discussion
- Working towards a single goal

By the end of the 30 day challenge, each child will have learned some extremely valuable life lessons, which I hope will stick with them for years to come, and help shape their futures in a positive way.

Benefits of The Challenge For Each Child:

- Understanding of how committing themselves to taking small actions over a long period of time can help them achieve amazing results.

- Learn a goal setting technique they can use in all areas of their lives.

- Make exercising every day an easy and fun habit.

- Learn how to empathize with their peers and understand their emotions.

- And much, much more.

Because we know that parents and teachers have a lot on their plate already, the ‘Parents & Teachers Guide’ book easily and clearly outlines how the entire challenge works, and makes it simple for any parent or teacher to run this challenge with their child or class, without any effort or preparation. All you have to do is open the page to the day you are on, and the simple instructions are right there.

The challenge takes only 15 minutes a day for 30 days to complete, but the rewards and lessons that each child will receive from completing this challenge could benefit them for a lifetime.
