    "Understanding your motive."

    There are many questions, we ask, consciously or sub-consciously about our lives. Why we do things or act in a certain way. This book was masterfully written, giving beautiful descriptives of actual people to explain. These people turned their lives around, after pinning down their motives, and they kept on going, to become exceptional human beings. Finding the secret of our motives inevitably leads us to discover our innermost reason for doing, what we do. Love It or Hate It: Motive Secret, what a marvellous book to write, how our motives influence our relationships, our fears and our love. I will recommend this book to anyone, regardless of whether they are successful, or merely starting out with their lives. It is a book, a guide to change one's life, to move into a positive direction. Understanding our motives makes for a journey of its own, with many pitfalls and deep personal gratitude.

    "This book is awesome!!"

    Have you ever wondered why despite all your efforts, nothing seems to go the way in which you intended? Stop and ask yourself, "what is my real motive for doing this".
    This book helps you to discover the answer to that question and so much more. If you have difficulties in discovering your true potential then you need to read this!
    One thing that I like , is the fact that real life experiences, which everyone can relate to were used to convey this powerful message. Margaret took the time to provide the reader with step by step information as how to unlock the secret to how to have a better job, a better relationship and a better life in general.

    Few of my favorite points from this book are:
    1. Motives kills dreams.
    2. Motives makes you unique and separated from the rest of the world.
    3. Once we lose sight of our motive we begin to sink down.

    Also the narrator was perfect. I felt like I was listening to a conversation I had with friends. I thoroughly enjoyed it and looking forward to more of her work.

    "Wonderful self-guide book"
    What did you love best about Love It or Hate It?

    I loved the way it's written. The author uses personal experiances throughout the book to make the "dry" topic seem more personal. The audio book drew me in, and kept all of my attention for the entire 120min length. My initial idea was to listen to the book while working, but that was just not possible. Loved every second of it.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story is written in a way that makes you actually wonder and ask yourself "am I the best version of myself"? It is the thing that differentiates it from the other Motivation books outhere that make their author seem condescending and boring. It actually forces you to think, and with the author's personal examples knitted throughout makes and exceptionally fun and helful read.


    What does Betsy Grisard bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Betsy Grisard is a narration legend, and I probably bought 80% of hardcopy books that I own because of her narration. With Mrs. Grisard's narration you feel like the book is made for you only, and noone else.


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    What keeps coming back to my mind is "A good motive applied in the wrong direction automatically becomes a wrong one".The first time I heard this quote it really took me by surprise. I kept going back to the chapter 6, and listen to it again and again.


    Any additional comments?

    I would like to wish the author many more books like this one.

    "Why you need this book in your life"
    What made the experience of listening to Love It or Hate It the most enjoyable?

    It's a book to which everyone can relate to and can help you (re)direct your thoughts and think about your life choices. Listing some questions can turn assessing your life a simple task that will help you get into a better path to you and self-discovery.<br/>Also, the narrator has a very good pace and I really enjoyed listening to it.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Love It or Hate It?

    "Be transformed" was my favourite chapter. We should take control of our own destiny and not limit ourselves. Sometimes, we wait so long for transformation that we wait around doing nothing and that is wrong. We must renew our strategy for renewed results, if we keep using the same strategy we keep having the same results that leave us feeling like a failure. It seems pretty obvious but we keep forgetting it. Always guard your motives close to your heart.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I have several and all of them have in common that they're personal experiences from the author. It makes it easier to relate to what is written and think about our own life experiences and reflect on what we're doing wrong and how to empower ourselves and nourish our motives to have a better life.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Empower yourself!


    Any additional comments?

    Try it! You'll feel like you have more tools to assess your life and feel more empowered.

    "A MUST READ for ALL!"

    This is a very inspiring book.I have spent the past few hours listening to it and I would love to repeat the experience because it is just WOWWW!!!.This book made me face myself and evaluate my choices. This confrontation with myself was harsh, but I definitely needed it. Margaret Normeshie is to the point, honest and pure.She has cleverly written the book and managed to unleash the hidden part of my personality, this part that believes that I am unstoppable.If you want to develop your morals, learn life quotes or even if you feel that you are down and need somebody or something to lift you, then this book is DEFINITELY for you.You will walk out of this book knowing how to take charge of your life, feeling you can conquer the world without having to compromise your morals for it.I believe this book should be read by everyone as it has a great effect on shaping personalities, building morals as well as lifting spirits.

    "Awesome Book"
    Would you listen to Love It or Hate It again? Why?

    Yes! This book captured me and made me look at my own motives in my own life . The book is a lot like a mirror forcing one to see the reflection of their own true self and why you make the decisions you do or have made.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Love It or Hate It?

    The biblical scripture involved and the moments it made me evaluate my own choices for why I married and who I married and my career path along with many other choices and motives in my life whether good or bad.


    Have you listened to any of Betsy Grisard’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The book brought up many emotions that brought tears to my eyes. I wish I had this book as a guide when I was young!


    Any additional comments?

    I would recommend this book to anyone who needs self,past and future evaluation of their life.

    "Profound and Thought Provoking"
    Would you listen to Love It or Hate It again? Why?

    Margaret Normeshie manages to turn the prism of the inspirational genre and look at it in a different light. This is the first inspirational book I have come across that is extensively dedicated to analysing the impact of human relationships on our lives; interrogating and advising how the good and bad outcomes in out lives are a result of everyday relationships.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Love It or Hate It?

    The book made me laugh in certain instances especially where my own experiences were invoked, and I also had moments that were introspective enough to leave me with misty eyes.


    Which character – as performed by Betsy Grisard – was your favorite?

    The Narrator/The Author


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I found it quite captivating and engaging. Even though I didn't listen to it in one sitting, I wanted to listen to get to the end as fast as possible.


    Any additional comments?

    With echoes of Napoleon Hill and Rhonda Byrne, she is definitely up there with the best, but with a unique perspective of analysing our lives and ways to make us better, happier and successful through our relationships and secret motive. INSPIRING AND EYE OPENING!!!

    "we need the right motives"
    Where does Love It or Hate It rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    There is a right moment for everything in life, and this book has come at the right moment in my hands. We all have periods of time when we reflect on how was our life like so far, or how is it going to be from now on, how the relationships we have or had influenced us and what changes we can make to have a meaningful and gratifying life. <br/>Margaret Normeshie has written this self guide to bring awareness of the fact that we can overcome the difficulties that come across our path, and the way of doing this is to find the motives that make us take the most important decisions, the reasons that stand behind the choices we make and how they influence the quality of our lives. <br/>The narration performed by Betsy Grisard came to complete the harmonious writing, and it made out of 'Love It or Hate It: Motive Secret' a definitely 'love it' kind of book.

    "Looking for how to go back to your own center? Her"
    What did you love best about Love It or Hate It?

    If you ever feel a bit depress, lost or just without motivation, I really recommend this book.


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from Love It or Hate It?

    I started to listen with a little of doubt if it would help me, because I’m in my thirties and with some uncertainties about where I’m going with some aspects of my life, and I think I never thought about the MOTIVES of some decisions, and now I’m starting to think more conscious about why I should do or do not things, because I have to work for my purpose in order to achieve a plenty life. Also, now I think about the motives of the decisions of other people does and affects me, so I don’t have to take anything personal, because, everyone is working towards their own purposes, and their motives are not always lead to another person but to their own. I really enjoyed listened this book.


    Any additional comments?

    I recommend to listening in the morning or when you are going to sleep, as a kind of meditation, because the content and the voice of the narrator will make you feel comfortable, relax and full of peace as you think in your motives for your next move.
