Share Article

New book reveals to readers a simple process and basic principles that will help them change a current situation for the better.

I hate my job, I want a better car, I don’t have enough money for that, I’m fat, I look bad, I’ll quit smoking tomorrow, and I’m tired.

Everyone wants something—whether it is money, a house, a boat or more money. Whatever it is, it can be done. In It’s Not Too Late!, author George D. Contakos shares a regular guy’s story of how, whatever the situation is, it can be changed for the better.

“I hate my job, I want a better car, I don’t have enough money for that, I’m fat, I look bad, I’ll quit smoking tomorrow, and I’m tired.” These are all familiar statements from people who are stuck in a limbo and think they can’t achieve anything. For Contakos, it doesn’t matter what situation they’re in—good credit, bad credit, no money, fat, skinny, no car, no job, can't quit smoking. Whatever it is, it can be fixed.

This book is not a promise to get rich or to make it big; but it is what has helped the author get what he needed in life with basic principles. It helped him pay the mortgage, make a car payment, get him to work and keep him from being laid off. He shares this simple process to achieving these goals and affirms, “You can do it! Yes, you can!” One might need a car, a better job or a vacation. Whatever it is, it can be done. It’s Not Too Late!

It’s Not Too Late! will be featured at this year’s New York Library Association Book Exhibit in Saratoga Springs, NY, on November 2-5, 2010. For more information, log on to
