'Tiger Mom’ And The Cultural Success Furor: Author Emeka Iwenofu Issues Statement
'Battle Hymn Of The Tiger Mother’ has caused a heated discussion in regards to what makes for success in America. Iwenofu believes that hard work and focus can overcome any challenge, regardless of other factors
"I believe," Iwenofu stated, "that success is something that we all can acquire provided we have a goal, meaning we know clearly what we want, and are willing to work towards achieving that goal on a consistent basis without distraction. I would agree that the Chinese and other Asian countries practice a more disciplined approach where hard work, focus, and determination is strongly embedded in their subconscious mind since it's something that's taught to them, compared to the majority of Americans. But I wouldn't say that those traits are something that they're just born with. Rather, they're traits that are learned and applied which anyone can do accordingly or not do."
“In fact, in the classic book, ‘Outwitting the Devil’, Napoleon Hill wrote back in 1937 that most sons of titans of industry seldom ever outperform the levels of their fathers who worked towards acquiring a fortune. Why? Because according to Napoleon, such children have been stripped from the privilege of struggle or work and therefore live off their inheritance without really appreciating it. I also will state that from the book, ‘The Science of Being Great’, by Wallace Wattles, that man's fate in life is never governed by his education, background, or family tree. A man's fate in life is all governed by his own thinking. Therefore, whatever he inserts in his mind is what he gets out in life.”
In the tradition of his mentors, Og Mandino, Anthony Robbins, Napoleon Hill and Wayne Dyer, Emeka Iwenofu teaches young readers, through engaging works of fiction how to achieve their life goals despite limitations or challenges.
“Parents, grandparents, children and teachers will enjoy this book” Iwenofu continued, “because it is displayed in a story form - as an indirect guide to the reader on how they can achieve their goals regardless of their current situation that they, their family members or students are in. My work demonstrates how anyone can still triumph to ultimate glory and greatness, regardless of their current status in life or in the classroom.”
