Columbia, SC (PRWEB) September 28, 2011
Victory Starts Here! That is the slogan Dr. Yvonne Corppetts notices a lot around Fort Jackson, South Carolina. Having grown up as a military brat (her father retired MSgt Earl Jones spent 30 years in the Army) and having served in the U.S. Army herself, Corppetts feels at home at Fort Jackson where she will be signing her new book, Take Charge for Major Success. “My roots started in the Army and much of my success I owe to my military training and my family upbringing.”
According to the paper, Happiness in Everyday Life, in the Journal of Happiness (springerlink.com), feeling good about the self and being excited, proud, sociable, and active among other things are strong predictors for happiness. “As an author and motivational speaker, my mission is to motivate people to change their lives for the better,” says Corppetts. “What better way to start my campaign when I believe success begins with the individual than to be at a place where individuals are trained to be victorious!” Fort Jackson is the largest and most active Initial Entry Training Center in the U.S. Army (http://www.jackson.army.mil).
Take Charge for Major Success is a guide to living a better life with themes and exercises that include self-awareness, decision-making, goal-setting, overcoming fear and effective communication. “What I call the booby traps of life are opportunities to excel because I was trained that failure is not an option,” says Corppetts. The book signing will be held at the Army & Air Force Exchange Service (AAFES) at Fort Jackson, South Carolina September 29 - October 1, 2011.
