Time to learn, change, and grow is at a valuable premium. The book will create the opportunity for people to focus on themselves and creating a more valuable, fulfilling, and satisfying life for themselves. Have you ever lit a match-stick, and thought- "Why wasn't the match-stick burning before I rubbed it against the box?" Motivation one seeks externally is actually inside us all along. Think back to songs you love, books you have read, and discoveries you have witnessed - the motivation these inspired was already inside your brain long before you encountered them. Think of yourself as a matchstick and quotes are the matchbox (striker). Whenever we rub ourselves against a quote, we burn or motivate ourselves for good. You have the right tool in your hand if you are ready to transform your negative thinking into a positive mindset by applying practical tips to grow into your best self! The author's daughter passed away in Dec 2010. Her death was unimaginably impactful and emotionally painful. Over the next five years the author turned into a workaholic, gained weight, denied his emotions, and lost his way in the painful grief of losing his child. He lost his way to living a meaningful life. A friend who was concerned about the author's negative downward spiral, recommended collecting quotes - pieces of wisdom that have become icons over the ages because of their practiced and observed learning - and used them as a foundation to shift his mental and emotional attitude. The appeal for quotes seem to lie in a combination of appropriate wordsmithing, motivational psychology, and a measure of self-selection. People who tend to feel inspired by motivational quotes are going to find them more resonant to their lives and situations. This quote collection allowed the author to focus, take back and rebuild his fragile and emotional psyche, enabled him to create and develop small goals and then larger goals, to take the action steps, and - finally - to get back to living a life he loved. The author offers suitable life-inspiring quotes (52, one weekly, for a calendar year), with tips, reflections, and a small set of questions enabling the readers to empower themselves to think about what negative ideas and emotions are holding them back and what positive goal setting, actions, and thoughts they can strive for to improve their mental and emotional health. These motivational quotes help the reader move past self-imposed limitations, and while the reader's life situation may not be the same as the author's, the empowering exercises will help the reader gain more from their lives by the end of the year. In this book you will ... -... know there is more to life, and will help you get started motivating yourself -... find you faster, better ideas to become healthier, happier, and to live a successful life -... stop you procrastinating and achieve real results for your life -... stop you from standing still and to achieve the results you've always dreamed about -... provide you practical ideas to stay motivated despite your current circumstances

Author Biography

Like you, John Bentley has experienced the ups and downs of life. One moment you are on 'cloud nine, ' and at other times you may become confused and not quite sure of where to turn next. Through it all John has come to understand that leading yourself is the key to staying motivated, overcoming challenges, and solving the problems that will occur in your life. John's 'aha moment' came early in his Air Force career when he received feedback that his leadership style under pressure was similar to someone opening a coke can after it was shaken. This led him on a journey to discover why he behaved poorly in tough situations. The findings John uncovered were not easy to accept. But, he possessed the desire to learn and willingness to overcome limiting beliefs that caused him to struggle, be frustrated, and limit his opportunities for success. His inner journey provided him with peace and the motivational answers to his current success. After he retired from the Air Force, John founded Power 2 Transform. Since 2003, his sole focus is on helping people master the art of self-leadership, especially when faced with adversity. His goals, whether speaking, coaching, or training are always the same - equipping people to leverage their strengths and mitigate their limitations - so they can be more effective for themselves and others.
