In today’s ever changing society, success has varied meaning to different people. Regardless of your definition of success, achieving the type of real, sustained success you desire requires a plan.

A plan with realistic, measurable, stretch goals helps you to maximize your potential and achieve your goals in a timely manner while allowing you to enjoy your accomplishments along the way. Not only are YOU responsible for designing your pathway to success, ultimately, YOU are in direct and total control of your destiny.

The purpose of this guide is simple — to provide YOU with proven, yet practical, essential fundamentals (the BASICS) to help YOU control your destiny and achieve the kind of lasting, self-fulfilling success that YOU deserve!

More success…More fun…More happiness.

Dewayne King

As a former student athlete on the Southeastern Conference, I saw a lot of players who were primarily focused on athletics.  They didn’t fully take advantage of their opportunity to earn a meaningful college degree. I am convinced that all student athletes are capable of achieving excellence in both academics and athletics with the right focus, guidance, and hard work. Throughout Control Your Destiny, you will discover the fundamental keys to success. I challenge all student athletes to always keep their focus on what should be the ultimate goal during their time in college  – to earn a meaningful college degree that will be so critical to achieve and maintain success and personal empowerment for a lifetime!   Dewayne King is a successful banker, motivational speaker, and former Southeastern Conference linebacker who resides in Nashville, TN.  He works with high schools and universities to provide “real world” personal empowerment and leadership strategies for student athletes.  Dewayne received his BBA degree in Marketing and has received professional public speaking training from ECG, Executive Communications Group.
