Shift by Takumi Yamazaki

It's not that you're lazy, and its not that you lack motivation. No, you have plenty of motivation, but it always seems to fade away just when you need it. The problem is not that you don't have motivation, it's that motivation doesn't stick around long enough. This book takes knowledge and inspiration from motivation specialists and distills it into something easy to understand. Thirteen exercises and seventeen techniques illustrate points to help you take the steps to keep, bring back, or find the motivation you need to make the shift into who you want to be.

Motivation.  I have it but sometimes I have a hard time finding it or retaining it.   Takumi Yamazaki has written an easy to read and follow along book about how to Shift - make yourself into what you want to be, how you want to be.  He talks about our subconscious and our consciousness - what you percieve and what really is.  He talks about self-image.  Act like you are what you want to be, and you will be that person. 

There are thirteen exercises in the book that will help you change the place you are in your life and motivate you to take control.  But once you have the courage and have shifted your self-image to get you on the right path, you don't want to fall off.  You want to reach your goal and to do that, you need to stay motivated and approach the obstacles in your path in a different way - exercises that you will learn about in SHIFT.

I found this book to be very inspirational and easy to follow along.  I did many of the exercises and I definitely need to work on my approach to different obstacles to get where I want to be.  Did it motivate me? You bet! This is a great tool for any adult or young adult to better themselves and to help them stay motivated.

Best-selling author Takumi Yamazaki has authored ten successful titles in the category of business which have sold a cumulative total of over eight hundred thousand copies. A self-made millionaire, Takumi travels around the world giving seminars on motivation. He presently lives in Tokyo, Japan.

  1. I definitely need to find a copy of this on! Thanks for the review!


The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.

Thank you for taking time out of your day to leave a comment. It's appreciated.
