About the Book
Hard Work is the only Way to SuccessIf you get 1% better at your core skills every single day of a year, you will end the year 38 times better than when you started!This book guarantees your daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly doses of inspiration.In the times we live in, we need reminders that things will get better, and that the greatest minds throughout history have said insightful things that can motivate us to get better at something every day. This is a self help book with a difference: it has thousands of inspiring, clever, motivational quotes, formatted into beautiful text posters, with typography guaranteed to make them easy to read.The book has been specially designed to provide you with your daily dose of motivational brain fuel for an entire year; all you need to do is to take up one chapter every week, and reflect on 5-10 quote posters within that chapter every day, before you start your day's work / service / leisure. This will make sure that you spend most of every day steeped in the noble thoughts that the quotes will awaken within you. I have also chosen the quotations within each week carefully; just like your body needs a balanced diet to function optimally, your week's mental diet (through the quotes in each chapter) will make sure that your brain is firing on all cylinders all the time, and that you have a smile on your lips, and a song in your heart.The unique visual style used in the presentation of this book is a result of many years of experimentation. I have seen that many motivational quotes, when presented in purely textual form, fail to have the desired impact; you just stop reading (or paying attention) after the first few; your brain's meal is unsatisfying. On the other hand, we are also used, especially nowadays, to read content formatted beautifully on Instagram but, there too, we are unable to bring all our attention to bear, since we keep swiping to the next picture. This book brings the best of both worlds together: the beautiful visuals and impactful hues of Instagram, along with the long term collector's value and accumulated wisdom that a book format comes with. It is so much easier to change your life when the transformation that you want to bring about looks great!There are many different genres of quotations that you can enjoy in this volume. The bulk of the quotes you will read fall into the inspiration / motivation category. However, there are also a large number of witty quotes; the easiest way to ingest wisdom is when that wisdom also makes you laugh, and seeing the light side of a heavy topic always helps! No matter which genre a quote comes from, I am sure that many of them will resonate with you deeply, and that you will share these words of wisdom with your friends and family.In keeping with the primarily visual nature of the book, I have made sure to avoid quotes that are unnecessarily long, that end up being walls of text. The aim is to inspire you through thought-provoking quotations that are a sentence or two long, not to give you an exercise in reading that takes you all day! Bite-sized pieces of knowledge and wisdom define the modern age that we live in, and we must all abide by the wisdom of the digital age.Finally, I'd like to leave you with one thought before you dive into the fascinating world that the greatest minds in history have woven. Success comes from thoughts and actions; this book is only half the puzzle. Once you have gone through it over days, weeks, months, and years, I'd like you to stop and think, long and hard, about how you can put all that inspiration to work for you. You can dream big, but only hard work, day after day, will help you turn that dream into reality. For every minute that you spend on this book, I want you to spend 10 minutes on working towards your dreams, aspirations, and goals.You can be anything. You will be fantastic. You will be a legend.Go out, be great! Enjoy the book.
