When this book was first written (in 1995), the entire world was not yet
living in cyberspace. The Internet was a relatively new idea, and very
few of us knew how big a part of our lives it would become.
As the new millennium dawned, a strange thing began to happen.
People everywhere were writing again, just as people did in the 1800s
when they took their quills out to write letters and diaries. The age of
mind-numbing television viewing had been eclipsed by the age of chat

book’s word-of-mouth “buzz” over the Internet.I began getting e-mails from readers as far away as Taiwan and Japan and as close as my computer screen.100 WAYS TO MOTIVATE YOURSELF

There are no optimistic or pessimistic personalities; there are only single, individual choices for optimistic or pessimistic thoughts. 100 WAYS TO MOTIVATE YOURSELF

Monte Carlo and the judges awarded him third place! Personality is overrated. Who we are is up to us every moment. The choices we make for our thinking either motivate us or they do not. And although clear visualization of a goal is a good first step, a joyfully motivated life demands more. To live the life you want to live, action is required. As Shakespeare said, “Action is eloquence.” And as psychologist and author Dr. Nathaniel.
