CelebrityPress® describes the book:

Self-Improvement and success are not qualities dropped in our laps. Occasionally, we might win the lottery or stumble into an opportunity, but the odds are not good. The most reliable method for improving one’s position and to succeed in life is to make it happen yourself.

While thoughtful actions do not guarantee success, they make good results likely. Most successful people go through similar difficulties to all of us at the start, but they proceed to make decisions focused on their vision. Even with knowledge, planning and passion, success is attainable but not guaranteed – there could still be missing elements.

To be successful in private or public careers, or following some other desirable path, we are advised to formulate our goals, chart the way forward, and take action now. You need to be DRIVEN! To summarize the counsel of General George Patton: “A good plan today is better than a perfect one tomorrow.”

The CelebrityExperts® in this book wish you to succeed. These authors have experienced success in their various fields. For your success and satisfaction, you can move forward with their help. So, do not procrastinate, go for it!

One of the qualities of top men and women is that they are extremely self-reliant. ~ Brian Tracy

After such a successful release, Dr. Hooper will be recognized by The National Academy of Best-Selling Authors™, an organization that honors authors from many of the leading independent best-seller lists.
