FORT WORTH, Texas, March 4, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Author Douglas N. Petersen began sending inspirational thoughts and quotes via e-mail to coworkers after attending a week-long self improvement and leadership program sponsored by his employer. Since he began "Thoughts of the Day," the e-mail list has grown and Petersen's dedication to providing those around him with daily inspiration has continued to blossom.
At the urging of a friend, Petersen gathered his daily thoughts into a larger collection now available to the public as Inspire: A Collection of Thoughts of the Day, Inspire: Collection II of Thoughts of the Day and Inspire: Collection III of Thoughts of the Day.
"The stress that life hands us can be challenging," Petersen says. "But it is my hope that this book will help bring the joys of life into focus for others, just as writing it has for me."
His journey is unique and Petersen's goal isn't to set an agenda or force his views. Instead, he says, "I hope the book inspires others to focus on their own personal values and live them each day."
Readers can capture their own reflections on the book's contents by journaling on blank pages provided next to each of Petersen's thoughts.
Inspire: A Collection of Thoughts of the Day (ISBN 978-1-60264-404-5), Inspire: Collection II of Thoughts of the Day (ISBN 978-1-60264-477-9) and Inspire: Collection III of Thoughts of the Day (ISBN 978-1-60264-601-8) are available at Amazon.com, Barnes&Noble.com and VirtualBookWorm.com.
