April A2Z Heights – Day 16 – Nightingale

quick motivation
from complete book for the ears–
success dreams on tape…


As a child, I remember my father would often receive a package in the mail. Usually, it was a set of 2 to 6 cassette tapes in a case that looked like a book. The tapes would have motivational speeches from dealing with difficult times to learning to converse with anyone. As a teenager, I would listen to some of these. And I partially attribute my interest in psychology to my father having so many of these around our house (Thanks Papi!). The company that distributed these tapes was founded by Earl Nightingale, a motivational speaker and not a psychologist. Now a days, this type of audio motivation comes on CDs, podcast, or can be downloaded directly to your computer, a phone, a tablet, or mp3 player.


“All you need is the plan, the road map, and the courage to press on to your destination.”
Earl Nightingale

About Claudia

Hi!! My name is Claudia. Blogging is sort of a creative/therapeutic activity for me. I blog about being a wife, mother, student, caseworker, and simply being human through photography, words, music, and blog challenges. Mental illness has also been part of my life, so you'll sometimes find mental health and psychology in my posts. I've dealt with anxiety and depression most of my life. And my husband has bipolar disorder. My hope is that I may show readers that it is possible for people to live positive, productive lives despite mental illness, challenges, or frustrations.
