Publisher's Summary

The goal of this book is simple: to help others follow their dreams.
As part of that goal, for each dollar I earn from Quotes for Achievement, half will be given to a charity that enables individuals and communities to more fully realize their potential. Two such organizations are: Heifer International, which provides sustainable hunger relief in the form of seeds, animals, and training, and Kiva, which provides loans to entrepreneurs around the globe to help create new opportunities.
So I ask you, do you believe the right words can change your life? I do. Words and examples change your attitude and it is attitude that separates the winners from losers.
You try to maintain a good attitude, but it's hard. You are surrounded by all kinds of messages that make you doubt your own ability to succeed. Maybe you've tried and failed enough to wonder if you'll ever succeed. You need something to help you keep going when the going gets rough.
We can't bottle courage and conviction, but I can offer something to encourage you, strengthen your resolve, keep doubts at bay, and make it easier to stay the course until you are richly rewarded.
How much easier would it be to reach your goals with great achievers getting "inside your head", filling it with the same ideas that made them great?
Quotes for Achievement includes advice from Nobel Prize-winners, presidents, first ladies, several millionaires, inventors, prizefighters, film makers, military heroes, civil rights heroes, Olympic champions, and a few folks you may never have heard of before.

Good content selection, well arranged

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The pace of the performance doesn't suit the type of content, some background music would have ameliorated it. Some incongruous stories stand out and unduly take the place of lacking elaboration.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Lisa Lindsley?


Was Quotes for Achievement: Quotations, Stories and Advice from Great Achievers in Sports, Politics, Business and Life worth the listening time?


Any additional comments?

The content was good, but it stands to reason that a selection of great quotes is fail-safe. Overall, the time wasn't wasted.
