Attitude-inize: 10 Secrets To A Positive You by Jan Coates is a practical, easy to read book backed by scriptures about how to change our attitudes. Jan explains how she overcame obstacles in her life, and she teaches the reader how they can do the same. Jan made me feel I'm not alone with my personal struggles.
At the end of each chapter, Jan offers questions for the reader to consider and a place for them to write out their thoughts. That allowed me to delve deeper and be honest about the concerns and issues I face each day.
Thank you, Jan, for the labor of love in each page you wrote of Attitude-inize. God bless you.

“You need a better attitude.” “Attitude is everything.” “Change that attitude!”
How often have you heard (or made) comments like these? But how often has someone given you achievable, affirming tips that help you put such a transformation into effect?
I bet I know the answer. But it can change along with your attitude as you read the latest offering by Jan Coates, motivational speaker and author: ATTITUDE-INIZE: 10 SECRETS TO A POSITIVE YOU (Beacon Hill Press, 2011). Jan writes not from the lofty platform of a perfect life but from the transformed perspective of a broken one.
Name the mistake—Jan made it. Name the heartbreak—she experienced it. But instead of dwelling on the family dysfunction that fostered her wrong choices, Jan chooses to remember the works of the Lord. Instead of focusing on her son’s death at the hands of a drunk driver, she works to help others live beyond their pain. The result is a transparent, helpful volume that offers readers hope, healing, and help.
Each chapter of ATTITUDE-INIZE presents one simply-stated secret to a new attitude. Examples include “Forgive yourself and others,” “Prepare for obstacles,” and “Transform from the inside out.” These biblical, practical tips will help you move toward a fresh perspective or work on an area of special concern. Features such as real-life stories, apply-as-you-go activities, and questions help you take your learning to the next level. And a bonus eleventh chapter holds an Attitude Toolkit with interactive features that give practical handles for applying what you learn.
The next time I’m tempted to tell someone to change an attitude, I’ll remember the impact my own can have on others. I’ll also remember this book and its encouraging, step-by-step approach.

Jan Coates book, "Attitude-inize: 10 Secrets to a Positive You" may very likely be the book that changes your life. Through scripture-based guidance and sharing her own stories of life struggles that are beyond comprehension, she sets out to change you by the end of the book. You will discover that wherever you are emotionally at-in one of life's dumpsters-or just getting by-God has greater plans for your life if you are willing to go deeper into His presence and honestly look how your own thought patterns and choices are impacting your life and future. Jan is a woman of substance who cares too much to let people just blame their past for the future. Her questions, exercises, and tips throughout the book will rock your world and leave you with a hunger for Christ and the life He desires for you.
