As the author of a total of 12 self-help psychology books, Ashley Rosebloom has a great deal of experience in dealing with people's foibles.

As most of us are aware, motivation is the key to feeling better, doing better and thinking better...

In "51 Ways", we find simple, easy and basic techniques to overcome that lack of motivation -- no matter why we are feeling it. The reasons could be based in fear, anxiety, depression or a number of other conditions that keep holding us back from realizing our potentials but, in this book, we are provided with great suggestions on how to get rid of the feelings that are dragging us down so we can keep going -- keep achieving -- no matter what.

These techniques could be as simple as making a "to do list" and marking off the items we accomplish as we do them or starting with an empty list and adding each item as we accomplish it.

Setting aside small increments of time to accomplish smaller goals can also empower us and spur us on to accomplish more.

Even feeling better about our appearances by buying a few new outfits or getting our hair done can work wonders when it comes to motivation...

The main theme of the book is for the reader to understand that, no matter what happens, we must "keep plugging" -- keep going -- because (as the hare learned in his competition against the tortoise) "slow and steady wins the race"!

The author reminds us that Edison failed 10,000 times in creating a light bulb before he found the method that worked. Likewise, Colonel Sanders had his recipe for fried chicken rejected over a thousand times before he was finally able to sell it to a franchise. Failure only means that some action has been taken and no one should expect to achieve great things on the first try. Most times, all rejection means is that the idea or action needs some additional "tweaking" to work and one can never hope to accomplish a goal if one gives up after the first try. Anything worth having or winning requires some amount of work and the contemplation of that work shouldn't preclude the effort.

This is an excellent volume for those who are into a quick, efficient and easily understood read that skips past all the psychological jargon and gets to the meat of matter.

"51 Ways" is available on Amazon.com in a Kindle format at: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00H8XGFG0. ( )
