12 Qualities of Highly Successful People

Monday, January 12, 2015

Author Sati Achath, profiles Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr in his newly released book, 12 Qualities of Highly Successful People.

On Jan. 19, Americans will pause to reflect upon the legacy of iconic civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr., some 48 years after his assassination. Given the passage of time there are important details of his life that have either been forgotten—or never known—particularly by young people who were not yet born when he came to national prominence.

Author Sati Achath, who profiled Dr. King in his newly released book, 12 Qualities of Highly Successful People, holds him up as an example of an individual who was willing to risk physical hardships, failure and even death to achieve his dream of equal rights for African Americans.

Achath can answer such questions as:

* What name was Martin Luther King Jr. born with? Why did he change it?

* What made his winning the Noble Peace Prize so significant?

* Which public figures inspired him the most?

* What seven traits did he exemplify that made him so committed to civil rights?

* What steps can anyone take to be more like Dr. King?

CREDENTIALS: Sati Achath is the author of five books including the newly released 12 Qualities of Highly Successful People. The book profiles 130 successful individuals from the ordinary to the famous. A project evaluation specialist for the World Bank in Washington D.C., Achath holds four masters degrees and speaks six languages. His editorial cartoons and caricatures have been published in more than 25 U.S. newspapers. In addition, as a quarter-finalist on NBC's 2008 America's Got Talent, he was featured on The Late Show with David Letterman, CNN, ABC, CBS, and many other television channels. He has been featured in the Washington Post, USA Today, Baltimore Sun, National Geographic World, Men's Health, The Economic Times, Hong Kong Standard, and other newspapers and magazines around the world.
