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.
Shelley Wilson divides her writing time between motivational non-fiction and fantasy/horror for young adults. She also writes a multi-award winning motivational personal development blog and has been named one of the Top 10 UK Personal Development Blogs.Shelley was born in Leeds, West Yorkshire but raised in Solihull, West Midlands, UK, where she lives with her three teenagers.
Combining magic, mysticism, wisdom and wonder into an inspiring tale of self-discovery, The Alchemist has become a modern classic, selling millions of copies around the world and transforming the lives of countless readers across generations.
Paulo Coelho's masterpiece tells the mystical story of Santiago, an Andalusian shepherd boy who yearns to travel in search of a worldly treasure. His quest will lead him to riches far different—and far more satisfying—than he ever imagined. Santiago's journey teaches us about the essential wisdom of listening to our hearts, of recognizing opportunity and learning to read the omens strewn along life's path, and, most importantly, to follow our dreams.
Straight-talking, honest and with touches of humour, Shelley Wilson shares her journey as she sets out to prove that being a 40-something, single mum with back fat and grey hairs isn't the end of life as we know it.
From fighting flab to writing a 50,000 word novel in 30 days, Shelley covers a wide variety of themes as she tackles twelve challenges in twelve months.
