Angry Book Review of ‘100 Ways to Motivate Yourself’

Letter ‘O’ so….it still counts if the title is a numerical number instead of written as ‘one hundred’? I’ll count it as so >:D

100 Ways to Motivate Yourself by Steve Chandler

60311

My Rating: 3/5

I made the mistake of listening to this audio without taking any notes for the couple good nuggets here and there. MOST of this book is just platitudes and platitudes. But there are bits where the author gives some almost-specific instruction, for example instead of making yourself the victim of everything, tell yourself, “I am the problem’ because when you see yourself as the problem, you also see yourself as the solution- I thought this piece was a gem! And there were some bits of gems sprinkled here and there all of which made it up for 3/5 stars

There is ONE pretty shitty part in the book. The author throws shade at democracy subtly “Marxist, economic superstition that to make money, you have to take it away from someone else….people who think they don’t have enough (money)”. No, I am not equating marxism with democracy, but helping the little guys shouldn’t be a bad thing. If I was a poor person as I went along life watching the rich get richer and then hearing this guy say, “Quit thinking there isn’t enough, such Marxist superstition that someone has to **lose money**”-
