TransformNational: Journey of a Bastard

TransformNational: Journey of a Bastard by Lamont Robinson is an inspiring story of how one man overcame the trials of his fatherless past from Chicago’s violent West Side to develop a path to personal success, despite countless obstacles that sought to derail him.

This book details Lamont’s own personal transformation, sharing his amazing journey as he has mastered the art of using life’s challenges as motivation to succeed rather than as license to fail. Education was vital for his success as he left Chicago at the young age of 14 to attend Lower Merion High School in Ardmore, Pennsylvania through the A Better Chance college preparatory program where he received his first exposure to different cultures, races, and religions. Later, he was able to obtain his MBA which opened doors for his professional and personal success.

TransformNational hopes to encourage others to transform nations one soul at a time. This book is about not using obstacles as excuses but instead a driver towards success. Robinson dedicates this book to his mother and also to the single parents and children in poor and violent areas who seek a safer, more stable life.

If It Is To Be, It’s Up To Me.

Work hard, never give up, never settle, stay focused and always be true to yourself—these are simple lessons that Lamont’s profound story is built upon, and ones we should all aspire to live by. He is a model of success—in every sense of the word—and his book shares how anyone can live their life with the same positivity and faith to achieve greatness and, above all else, a life full of love and happiness.

Lamont clearly followed the advice I gave to all my students during my 38 years at Grant School, which can be summarized in these few words: You will face many obstacles in life, but don’t give up. Persevere and realize your dreams.

Lamont is a true example of what hard work, perseverance, and fortitude can accomplish. It is my hope that his story awakens the youth of America to the lesson that hard work really does pay off. No matter the neighborhood or culture—in America, all things are possible.
