Brian Tracy & Christina Tracy Stein

Here comes another motivational work by Tracy, one of the world's most widely known business speakers and an authority on the development of human potential and personal effectiveness.

Just like the lonely princess in the fairy tale, something stops many of us short of attaining our dreams. Our negative thoughts, emotions and attitude can keep us from achieving all that we're capable of.

Tracy and his daughter, therapist Christina Tracy Stein, provide a set of practical, proven strategies anyone can use to turn those negative frogs into positive princes.

They present a step-by-step plan that addresses the root causes of negativity, helps you uncover blocks that have become mental obstacles, and shows how you can transform them into stepping stones to achieve your fullest potential.
