The Miracle of Motivation by George Shinn

This is an updated version of Shinn's 1981 book.  This revision includes topics such as staying on track despite the distractions of e-mail and social media. It also keeps all the great advice from the original about setting goals, staying motivated,  and solving problems.

Chapter 14 on Overcoming Obstacles was especially helpful, in my opinion. Step one of the six step problem-solving procedure recommended by the author is "Don't fear the problem..." George Shinn tells the reader many things that should be obvious, but so often are not.  His advice is comprehensive and compelling and applies to business, personal life, and charitable activities.

Check out the book trailer here.  It was my pleasure to review this book after receiving a free review copy from Shinn Publishing and The A Group, Inc.
