Ability is what you’re capable of doing. Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it. -Raymond Chandler
A few years ago I was vacationing with some friends in western Maui. It ended up being a great opportunity to get away, reflect on life, and enjoy some beautiful scenery.
While I was there, I met a woman who introduced me to a motivational speaker named Wayne Dyer. By the end of the trip I had read excerpts from many of his books, and marveled at his ability to influence others.
Since the trip I have made the effort to read motivational books on a regular basis, many of them by authors listed below. These 5 motivators work to influence others and shift attitudes in the new millennium.
For those interested I highly recommend grabbing a few of their books, and reviewing some of their more famous quotes.
