Turn Over All Fears, Leave That Self-doubt Suitcase at the Door, and Get Ready for a Motivational Marathon
After writing her self-help memoir How I Changed My Life in a Year, award-winning blogger and motivational author Shelley Wilson received so many letters asking how she managed to stay motivated and elicit much-needed change in her life, she knew it was time to share everything she’d learned on her journey so far.
How I Motivated Myself to Succeed incorporates fifteen years of research, inspirational tools, techniques, and alternative therapies. Turning to holistic health in a bid to begin the healing process—physically, emotionally, and spiritually—proved to be a lifesaver for the author: “I’m not a floaty kaftan and bells-on-my-fingers kind of girl. I love pizza, duvet days, and reading young adult fiction! So, for me, it wasn’t about discovering an entirely new way of life but integrating the personal development techniques I learned into my usual daily routines.”
Key topics include setting resolutions and goals, list writing, celebrating achievements, life planning and organization, self-care for the body, mind and spirit, freeing yourself from fear, motivational tips, and a twelve-month productivity plan to use those fifty-weeks wisely. Also included are affirmations, uplifting quotes, power words, and happy weeks challenges.

I received this book as an ARC from BHC Press in exchange for an honest review. Opinions and thoughts expressed in this review are completely my own. I am very familiar with Shelley Wilson's blog and as a matter of fact a high school teacher in the district where our library is located does an assignment for her students that involves this blog. When we heard this book is going to be released, she assigned me to preview and review this book to see if it is worthy to share with her classes. After previewing and writing this review, I must say this book will definitely motivate and inspire not only students but anyone that struggles to find their passion and motivation for success. This book gives helpful information in a very short format and I know students will love that. We will consider adding this title to our Non-Fiction collection at our library. That is why we give this book 5 stars.
Honest and in-depth advice for reaching your full potential. This advice is presented in easy to follow language that can be broken up and applied in pieces at a time.
