Review: 100 Ways to Motivate Yourself: Change Your Life Forever | Steve Chandler

I don't recall how I came across this title, but I thought it might be a great self-help book; perfect for the beginning of the year.  When I reserved it from the library, I was allocated an older edition of 100 Ways To Motivate Yourself - Change Your Life Forever by Steve Chandler in large print.

The large print was perfect actually and the fact that it's broken into 100 ways/chapters makes it the perfect book to dip into at any time; you can literally flick to any page and start reading.  Many/most of the 'ways' I'd come across before in one form or another, but I ended up flagging six sections in the book for follow up later on.

There was one motivational strategy in particular that really grabbed my attention and I immediately put the book down to commence developing a personal goal I'd been avoiding.

For that one idea it was definitely worth reading 100 Ways To Motivate Yourself - Change Your Life Forever by Steve Chandler, although for any readers seeking out this book, I recommend you get the latest edition.  I'm confident it'll be even better.

My rating = ***

Carpe Librum!

P.S.  My favourite quote from the book appeared on page 192, in an excerpt from Anne Lamott's non fiction book Bird by Bird.  This phrase came about when Anne's brother had been procrastinating about working on a school project about birds. He was panicking the night before it was due, feeling overwhelmed by the task ahead, and his father said:
"Bird by bird, buddy.  Just take it bird by bird."
Brilliant advice, I love it!
