"In The Power of a Promise, Lesra shares the secrets of his success, demonstrating that a key factor in overcoming obstacles is a strong belief that we can move beyond limiting circumstances."

-Robin Sharma, Leadership guru, Author of the #1 International Bestsellers "The Greatness Guide" and "The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari"

Have you ever discovered an inspiring story of someone who has made a real difference in the world and asked yourself how they accomplished that?

Lesra Martin's secret is that he believes that neither your intellect nor your circumstances will ultimately determine your success in life; that the real key to success lies in our ability to make a commitment to ourselves and then to fulfill that promise, whatever it is!

Filled with thought-provoking insights and practical guidance for tackling the everyday challenges we all face, "The Power of a Promise" takes us on a journey to uncover our hidden strengths, to discover the gifts that we have to share and to reveal the life that we were meant to live.

Lesra Martin was once an inner city kid dismissed by society; he rose from a poorly educated Brooklyn teen to a highly respected attorney. His heartrending story, which was the subject of the major feature film "The Hurricane," has inspired millions, including its star, Denzel Washington. Also inspired by his experiences, The National Film Board of Canada produced the documentary "The Journey of Lesra Martin," a compelling film that was screened at numerous film festivals around the world including the Hollywood Black Film Festival.
