About the book:

We all aspire to achieve our goals and fulfil our dreams. But working towards goals is not easy. Enroute to success you will encounter hurdles, obstacles and rough patches. The down times can get really down and dishearten you

Setbacks and disappointments are an integral part of life- there is no escaping them. While you cannot change your circumstances or bypass the hurdles, you can brace yourself up against the difficult times by maintaining a positive frame of mind and being determined to keep going against all odds.

When the going gets tough and you are overwhelmed by the rough times, all you need is something to encourage you and keep you going. Words to inspire the winner in you will do exactly that. This collection of author’s original motivational quotes will lift up your spirits, inspire you and put you back on track.



Concept:

The book is written as a work of several motivational quotes encountered and lived upon by the author in her part-time career as a motivational counselor and speaker. The book goes on word by word basis, starting with word (alphabetically) and then uses that word as a power narrative to speak out various quotes on life and success.

Since anybody and everybody falls to negative energy around him (in the form of obstacles, setbacks, and disappointments) at some time in his/her life, demoralizing one to distract from his chosen path of success and offering a loss of momentum to his efforts to lead a happy and successful life, this book offers a daily dose of numerous quotes to power up one's energy and belief that he CAN achieve whatever he wishes and dreams. That achieving our goals and fulfilling our dreams is a handy task but only when met by renewed optimism, and reading a random quote daily is worth a shot towards it.

Pepped up as motivational boosters to the dejected soul, these words offer the reader a way to rejuvenate his efforts towards leading a successful life.

So many powerful quotes in a single book

Quotes presented on Word-to-Word basis powerfully

Liked quite a few quotes; to share a few:

--> The decision to begin is half the task done; the determination to complete it, no matter what, is the other half.

--> Life is too short not to do things that your heart desires of and your soul yearns.

--> Concern is not enough, you must care. Compassion is not enough, you must share.

--> Celebrate every achievement - big or small. It will go a long way in boosting your self-confidence and enhance your self-esteem

--> If you look hard enough and long enough, you will find something positive in everything


Dislikes:

Monotonicity of the book and overdose of quotes, quite literally

Some quotes are just plain words, with no deep meaning; or are just same idea wrapped around in different word combinations


Overall, I would say this book is for those who wish to bring about a positive change in their attitude towards life and success in their daily lives. On the other hand, it is just like a first aid box to every burnt out soul out there.

My rating: 3 stars out of 5 :)

This book is a collection of inspirational quotes which are written by the author herself. It is categorized alphabetically with different headers. It begins with ‘Ability’ and ends with ‘You.’ Though the book has some spark in it yet it refuses to ignite the kind of passion or motivation that is expected from a self help book, especially in days like today where bookshops are crammed with self help books. The writing style is too plain, at most places it seems that it is taken from a random conversation. The book could have been made a lot better had the author used anecdotes or stories to drive the point home.
There are master story tellers like Paulo Coelho, Rhonda Byre, Wayne Dyer, Deepak Chopra etc. who have been pioneers in self help books and motivating generations of people. It is doubtful, if this book will find its audience. There are some wise quotes in the book like: You dilute your greatness when you begin to brag about your accomplishments and a few more. But if anyone reads them it seems more like sermons. The book lacks in soul which is the main ingredient that makes a book like this work magic. All, we can say that the book is written with all good intention but has no soul to reach the hearts of its audience.

When everything in your life seems impossible, doesn't matter how much ever you try, you should never lose your hope nor your self-confidence .That is what 'Words to inspire the winner in you' is all about.

All the quotes are arranged in an alphabetical order prior to their title so we need not search for a particular quote and try to find out where is it situated in the book.For instance, when we feel regret, we shall read the quotes under the topic 'regret'.

Dislikes

No one can read all the quotes in a day even if they do, it is not possible to remember every single quote that we read the very next day as no use in reading it bcoz we all know that learning takes some time.So, it is good to read one-three quotes a day depending on which topic suits us in the best way to brighten up our day.

Woah !! this one is a hard one to review. It's not a story, nope, nada, but its a collection of quotes.

You know the times when tunnel seems very long, endless, You can't find the opening, can't reach out no matter how long you are walking, no lights to show you the path, nothing to guide you and at some point you almost loose hope, the zeal of keep going, to keep walking, well this book is meant to give you the right push in the right direction, to encourage you during those days.
Everyone faces ups and downs in life and this book can prove to be a good companion during those cloudy days.

The 'Introduction' of this book is a must read. Dr. Roopleen has used her 15 years of experience as a motivational counselor & created a handbook to uplift your spirits when you feel down, when you cannot change your circumstances or bypass the hurdles, this book will help you in bracing yourself to face those difficult times.

This book is mainly a collection of many motivational and enlightening quotes to put you back on track. The right words to inspire, encourage and motivate YOU.
These quotes are categorized under 146 titles like Ability, commitment, confidence, competence, embark, Fate, faith, humility, improvement, obstacles, vision etc. most of the quotes have their own meaning and are significant in their own way.

Where many quotes are quite unique, many are plain and simple. The only problem is its full of Just quotes, I would have appreciated some kind of a story, a back ground or something to read and hold on to. Since every quote had its own beginning and ending, it got slippery at a point creating the monotony, nonetheless, one can pick it and read a random page and yes anyone will be able to connect with it to pull back your frown-lines.

Some quotes from the book--

"Don't be afraid of setting high standards for yourself; fear only being contended meeting others' standards that are less than what are capable of achieving. ~ page 18, Achievement

"A positive change is the only thing that will enrich you, empower you and help you grow towards a better you." ~ page 32, Change

"Fear ends where faith takes over. Doubts end where determination takes over." ~ page 83, Lesson

"The secret of success can be summed up as- Purpose, Passion, perseverance." ~ Page 106, Perseverance

"If you have dreams, reconnect with them; if you don't dream new dreams." ~ Page 120, Reconnect

"Your mind is your only mirror. You are what you think you are. Self-belief is one of the fundamentals of achieving success in life." ~ page 125, Self-belief

"Journey of success may seem long and treacherous but the rewards are worth the toil." ~ page 139, Toil

The books had covered 146 topics starting from ability to You, sequenced alphabetically. Incase we are searching for a particular word, say love or life, we can just go to that page and get beautiful inspirational one-liners. It contains inspirational one-liner. Even if you are not going through difficult faces in life, you can still read the book to get more inspirational in day today life. I would prefer reading one quote every day, and build the positive feeling inside me.

Introduction says , a person goes through various ups and downs in life. There are times, when a person completely loses his self confidence. It is very difficult for the other person to choose right words to comfort them. We need positive words to inspire and uplift the spirit of the person.

I feel the book can do wonders to such a person. In fact I was feeling depressed and felt I am living without any goals in life. But few quotes made me rethink, uplift my confidence.

I think everybody should posses this book, read one quote per day and make the life more meaningful and fulfill all dreams.

I applaud the authoress for her effort to compile original quotes that can inspire people. Yes, I feel it can inspire, but that being said, I think what the quotes needed were perspective. Just reading quotes doesn't always help to bring back lost inspiration or hope, or change the situation either. For just quotes, we get a lot of options on Google itself, so a book of only quotes didn't make sense to me.

Pratikhya

This book is a collection of motivational quotes in alphabetical order starting from 'Ability' to 'You'. Though author claims that this book is for anyone and everyone who wants to stay motivated but it is written in such a way which cannot even inspire you to complete the book. I wish it was written in more reader friendly manner.Disappointed!!!!

Anyway thanks to the author as I got it through Goodreads First reads.
