How Living by a Dog’s Rules Can Motivate Your Life
The authors of many self-help books encourage their readers to find a quote or a photo of someone to inspire and motivate them through out their day. Unfortunately, finding those words of wisdom and that face of encouragement isn’t easy. Some people need something or someone they can relate to emotionally, while others need to constantly be around a physical being. For Irene Young, all the motivation she need sleeps right in her lap.
In her book Hot Dogs, Cool Cars: Megabits of Wisdom from the Top Dogs in the Fast Lane, Young displays how the character, personality, and ordinary things a dog does can provide as much inspiration as the words of Robert Frost or John F. Kennedy. Highlighting each ambitious sentiment of motivation is a photo of a dog taking control of some of the hottest cars. From a Bulldog whipping and classic Thunderbird, to a white Terrier in a green convertible, these photos encourage you to sit in the driver’s seat on the highway of life. Each photo is also saturated in a soft pastel hue, which contributes to the peace, warmth, and character of each puppy portrait.
Young shows how our pets charming personalities can teach us life long lessons; if we treat our loved ones the way that we treat our dogs, “life can be a ball. Run with it… and come back for more.”
