Principle I: See the Pony. This principle concentrates on vision, overcoming limiting beliefs, getting specific, and focusing on one’s talent and beliefs. All of these ideas are essential to getting started on the way to creating a life never imagined, but this is just the start of the journey.

Principle II: Feed the Pony. This principle concentrates on not just nurturing one’s mind, body, and spirit, but nourishing them with a different way of processing life experiences through lifetime learning and exposure to people, places, and ideas that help one to grow.

Principle III: Train the Pony. This principle concentrates on the real work. The key word is “Work.” One can not make any life-changing or lifelong change if one doesn’t train, train, train. If life is worth living, it is worth training for.

Principle IV: Ride the Pony. This principle concentrates on getting on the pony and giving it a little kick. So often we just sit around and see what we want. We have learned what to do. We have practiced doing it, but we fail to move forward with total commitment and passion. This principle will give readers some new ideas to pursue.

170 pages in length, The Pony Principles: Lessons in Optimism Because of Adversity is being aggressively promoted to appropriate markets with a focus on the self-help and personal growth category.
