Sharing Some Empowering and Uplifting Thoughts from my Notes (from the brand new e-book THE WINNING WAY)


Submitter’s Note

These are some quotations and thoughts (some on “airey-fairey spiritual matters”), that I’ve collected* and “jotted down” on my computer. I’ll include them in my new book at Amazon, titled ‘The Winning Way’ at http://www.amazon.com/dp/B006WQSGEI. Hope these words may be as encouraging, uplifting, empowering…and perhaps even “inspiring” to you as they are to me. So am sharing. Enjoy

‘The aim is to be in the Zone every time you get in the car. But that day Ayrton was somewhere else beyond the Zone…heaven”

– Lewis Hamilton
