Description

Purpose defines you. What you do with that purpose redefines the world.

Joey Reiman was told he might never move his hand again after a horrible, paralyzing accident in 1975. Refusing to accept this prognosis and give in to negative thoughts, all he wanted to do was move his thumb. "If I could just raise my thumb," Reiman thought, "the rest will follow." With this seed of what he now calls optimalism--believing that optimism creates optimal outcomes--Reiman did it. He gave himself a thumbs up.

Now Reiman, the world's leading purpose branding expert and motivational speaker, will share his belief system with you. In Thumbs Up , Reiman shows how five simple pointers will ultimately help you activate your dreams into actions. The secret to success is right at your fingertips. Your digits will guide you to:

Give the world a thumbs up
Point to your purpose in life
Give your middle finger to fear
March forth to take action
Remember the little things that matter

Thumbs Up is a how-to that focuses on looking up and rising up to all you imagined you could be and determining that a life of purpose begins in the palm of your hand. Start your journey of life to deeper love, more meaningful work, better health, greater wealth, and richer faith.
