Got goals? Looking for some motivation? Get THIS book!
I'm a personal development junkie, so this kind of book gets my attention right away. What I didn't expect was a mirror to hold up and see what I was letting stand in the way of accomplishing my goals. Nor did I expect a format that lets me read Paul's quote on one page, form my own thoughts and then turn the page to get his explanation, insight or punch line. Oh and, by the way, Paul’s words are stark against a white space that he encourages me to use for my own musings. Now this book is a journal! Want to get the lead out and accomplish your goals? Read this book!
Buy this book, and don’t just read it…contemplate it. It will make your life better.
This is a book that truly makes you pause and think. Sad to say, but the truth is I rarely read the introductions in books. But for some reason, I read it in this book. It is very moving. It is inspiring. It proves that even though the odds are against you, you have the power to make something of yourself. Rather than take the easy way out and make excuses, you can make choices that lead you down a better path. This book is full of thought-provoking quotes. But my favorite is the very first quote. How true Paul’s comment…same words, big difference in meaning. Buy this book, and don’t just read it…contemplate it. It will make your life better.
By far the best book I’ve read all year!

This book delivers what it promises - insight, introspection, and motivation
I’ve been a fan of Paul Edgewater ever since I experienced his motivational lecture via a business event that had him as a guest speaker, representing Busy Bee Promotions. I still, to this day, have his book and quote card prominently displayed and readily available for reference at any time. I have followed him for years, always sourcing his words of wisdom and guidance, and interpreting it at my level, and applying that newfound knowledge to whatever it was I was building upon. Fast forward to now: Mr. Edgewater has written a book that, to me, is so profound—not only in its timing but of its current, in-the-now, look-inside-yourself era that we collectively are experiencing in 2019.
When I read the title—instantly, I had an “Aha!” moment. And I hadn’t even turned the cover yet! Not even past the foreword, I was emboldened and already reaching out to someone whom I’d had a disagreement with—because the instantaneous message I received from the title was my motivation. Then I got past the Foreward, on into the Preface, and then the Introduction—I was feeling a deeper knowledge of ME—and I haven’t even gotten to the quotes yet at this point!
To the author: Thank you for the insight. Thank you for sharing your endless, soulful gift of personal motivation and empowerment to the masses. Please know that the person and I that I had the disagreement with have since reconciled—and I owe it to your book for the opportunity to give pause [to come to the realization], take action, and “right the wrong.” I will be eternally grateful.
Perfect Start To Our Day!
This book was a wonderful addition to our staff morning meetings! Each day we received a quote that motivated and inspired our staff to maximize our potential professionally and personally. This is an amazing tool to utilize if you're seeking to boost office morale. Highly recommend.

Paul Edgewater is one of those rarities who eclipses his competitors not only through his consistently outstanding service offering but his desire to truly make his clients feel as if they're royalty. I highly recommend all of Paul Edgewater's books as well as his company Busy Bee Promotions.”
