“Positive Charges: 544 Ways To Stay Upbeat During Downbeat Times” (Book titles are italicized, not quoted. -Miss McCulla) by Alexander Lockhart is an inspirational little gem of a book. While I was not familiar with Lockhart, I did recognize the authors Og Mandino, Brian Tracy, and Denis Waitley, who endorsed this little book on both the front and back covers.  Strong commendations.

Waitley is so correct when he says the little difference in attitude makes the big difference in performance, and this motivational book helps keep your attitude positive.  Often recognizable people such as Zig Ziglar, Napoleon Hill, Robert H. Schuller, Dale Carnegie, Norman Vincent Peale, W. Clement Stone give great and positive words to thrive by, and numbers of quotes or sayings are not credited to anyone.

This isn’t rocket science. In fact, if you just quickly read through the book you might think the 544 ways to be happy are too simple. But remember, often it is the simple things that make the most impact. Do we really need to be told things like number 132, “Take time to be friendly?” Or 290, “Keep on trying!” Unfortunately, many people do need to be reminded

This is the kind of book you keep handy to read for exactly what the title describes, to help keep you upbeat. Start each day by reading a few pages and remembering to apply Lockhart’s suggestions throughout the day. We are bombarded with negativity all the time. Reading positive books helps us maintain a positive attitude. Reading Positive Charges does just that; it provides a positive charge to keep your attitude primed for performance. The more positive you are, the better your life will be. We don’t have time to be down, so use whatever is available to help you stay upbeat. Use Positive Charges to keep you going forward at your maximum potential.
