Steve Chandler is an insistent, unabashed optimist, in the same vein as Norman Vincent Peale. He covers 100 motivational tips that stretch the imagination, factor in the impact of technology, and challenge you to evaluate your situation from different points of view. The choices you make can either motivate you or hinder you, so he provides a wide array of tips you can embrace, reject, or simply read and digest. You can implement the games and exercises to make working toward your dream goal more fun. Though much of the content is basic and available in other self-help books, getAbstract recommends this breezy paperback; you can carry it in your briefcase and open it up randomly if you’re feeling low and want to get rejuvenated and motivated.

In this summary, you will learn

  • How to determine which of your goals means the most to you
  • What strategies and techniques you can use to stay motivated and focused on your high-priority goals
