Best Motivational Quotes Book


It is important to read Motivational Quotes daily to keep our mind with positive thoughts. Inspiring Quotes of Great People have the power of changing our Life in the positive direction.

I am running a Motivational Quotes Website www.TheQuotes.Net for many years. I had spent a lot of Time and Energy for adding lots of Quotes and Motivational Articles into our Website. From the Experience of running this Quotes Website, sometime back, I published an Android App for showing the Best Motivational Quotes. Though it is a very simple app with very fewer features, it is getting lots of good Ratings and Review Comments. The Positive Comments made me think about publishing the Motivational Quotes as a Book.

I have published the Motivational Quotes Book with the Title "Best Motivational Quotes: A Huge Collection of Quotes that Can Change Your Life" using Amazon's KDP publishing platform. This Book is available in both Kindle Format and Paperback Format. And, I have enrolled the Kindle Book into the "Kindle Select" program. So, it will be available with "Kindle Unlimited (KU)". That means, if you are a KU Subscriber, You will be able to read this Book for Free on your Kindle Device.

We can read thousands of Quotes on various websites freely. But we will not be having enough time to go through all those Quotes and then choose the best motivational Quotes. So, there is a huge need for the collection of only the best motivational Quotes. This book will be satisfying that need by presenting the huge collection of only the Best Motivational Quotes.

All the Motivational Quotes in this Quotes Book are collected with the intention of stimulating Positive thinking in the minds of the Quotes Readers so that they can achieve Success and Peace in their Life by improving their Confidence, Courage, and Happiness.

In short, this Motivational Quotes Book brings the Wisdom from lots of Great People, Leaders, Authors, Philosophers, and Saints.

Our Sub-Conscious Mind can do many Wonders if we keep our Thinking Positive. Everyone knows the power of positive thinking. But it is very difficult to keep on thinking positively at all the times. Everyday struggles and the negative people around us are forcing us in some ways to reduce our positive thinking, or even they can put negative thoughts in our Sub-Conscious Mind. This Motivational Quotes Book can help to retain our Positive Thinking in all harsh environments.

Apart from seeding Positive Thinking, this Motivational Quotes Book can help us to improve our decision-making process in Daily Life as it could bring the Wisdom of Great people through their Quotes.



Personally, I realized the benefits of reading Motivational Quotes in many different situations. For Example, Whenever I am tending to blame others for my failures, the Quote "The moment you blame others you fail" comes into my mind, and I stop blaming Others. I don't remember when and where I read this Quote or who is the Author of this Quote. But I realize the power of this Quote. If we take responsibility for our failures, actually we are not confirming the
Failure till we give up. We have the option of continuing our efforts to make our Failure into Success. But at the moment we blame others, we lose this option and therefore our Failure will be finalized.

So, I would suggest understanding the deep meaning of any Quotes. Not only the meaning but also the context and the background of the Quotes. For example, I like the below Quotes of Abraham Lincoln very much. It used to encourage me a lot whenever I am facing Failures continuously and lacking the Resources and the Skills required for achieving the Success.
“Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any one thing.”

I would say that this Quote can convey a powerful message only if we know the life story of Abraham Lincoln.

I am planning to promote this Book through various campaigns to make it as Best Seller. And, I would like to get Reviews for this Book. If you are interested in reviewing this Book, contact me (rajamanickam.a@gmail.com) to get the FREE Review Copy (PDF file) of this Book.

Testing our Websites and Apps


Past few days, I was spending significant time fixing issues of our Websites and Apps. Especially I updated our Motivational Quotes App and Bible Quotes App, to make them work with the latest Android Devices. Once after updating them in Google Play Store, I came to know that some devices are crashing when receiving the message. So, I have updated them again after fixing the issue. The latest Android Devices are provided with Notification Channel feature. So, I needed to change the firebase library version in the code to fix the issue. I hope now everything is working fine. So, updated these two apps in the Amazon App store also, and I have started running Google Ads Campaigns to promote these Apps. Let me know if you find any issue when using these Apps.


And, I have updated this blog to include AdSense Ads. Previously I was NOT monetizing it actively. Recently I have decided to monetize all our websites and Apps fully. Let me tell the reason behind it. A few days back YouTube disabled monetization feature for my YouTube Channel by saying "Duplication" as the reason. I just got an email from YouTube with Title "Your channel is no longer eligible to monetize. Learn how to reapply". It seems I will be able to reapply for the monetization only after 30 days after deleting Duplicate Videos.
Personally, I believe I am not violating anyone's copyright. Actually, I don't know what I need to do before reapplying with YouTube.
So, I contacted YouTube Partner support by sending below message.

Monetization is disabled for my Channel by saying "Duplication" as the reason.
I am running the channel mostly to give Technology News. I use the press release materials provided by the universities and companies to create videos. Since same press release material is used by many people "Duplication" is unavoidable for the news reporting videos. I believe I am not violating anyone's copyright. And, I don't have any copyright strike or community strike.

So, I don't know which video needs to be deleted. I don't want to delete any random video just for the sake of reapplying for monetization. Because inventors/scientists used to feel happy when their invention is reported in my channel. I don't want to disappoint them by deleting their news video.

In this case, please let me know what I need to do before reapplying for monetization.

If you have disabled monetization by mistake, please enable it again.

For this message, I got the reply from the YouTube Partner Support Team. But their reply message was NOT having any specific information. It was just the standard mail which repeats the same message that I received initially. By the meantime, I got mail (both email & courier) from a law firm (Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati) representing Khan Academy for asking me to remove any Commercial links or ads attached with a SQL Tutorial video which was created with the help of YouTube Video Editor by combining multiple Videos of Khan Academy which they published with permission for reuse. I removed the links in the description immediately after receiving their mail, and I deleted the video itself as I couldn't access monetization options for disabling the ads. More than 1 million people learned SQL from that Video and it got more than 10K Likes and lots of positive comments and interesting/useful discussions. Now it is NOT available. And, I couldn't understand whether these two things (Khan Academy's mail and demonetization) are separate incidents or related things. Anyway, I learned two lessons from these two things. One is, it is not a good practice to put all our efforts into one particular project even if is backed by a company like Google/YouTube. The second lesson is, it is better to promote our own Content even if someone is giving better content with reusable rights. I had spent lots of time and energy to promote the SQL video, by answering SQL related Questions in lots of Forums and Social Media. I had decided to promote the Khan Academy Video than creating my own tutorial video as I thought it was better than mine and it was available with reuse rights.

In short, I can not earn money from my YouTube Channel until they enable monetization again. And therefore I have decided to earn money from my Books, Websites, and Apps.

I enabled Adsense Auto Ads in most of my Websites (e.g This blog, TheQuotes.net website including motivation subdomain and facebook covers, our Forum, online Quiz, RtoZ.org website, learnwebdevelopment.info). After reviewing the performance and effectiveness of these ads on these websites, I will implement them in our other websites also.

Apart from adding Ads, I have done a few other changes (E.g enabling https, making websites more mobile-friendly) also. So, I need to test our websites and Apps from various perspectives. Contact me if you are seeing any issue with our websites or Apps.

YouTubers can Earn more Money by making use of Trending Topics effectively



You may be spending a significant amount of Time and Energy to run your YouTube Channel. You might be putting a lot of Efforts for creating each and every Video in your Channel. You might have spent a lot of Money in buying Equipment and Software required for creating your Videos.  Even you might be paying Money to the Freelancers who help you create your Videos in professional ways. You may be teaching your Skills or sharing your Business Success Secrets freely through your Videos. But, that doesn’t mean that your Channel will get Views. The increasing competition makes it very difficult to get Views even to the best Videos.  So, it is very important to give attention to the Trending Topics.

Let me explain about how the Trending Topics can bring more Visitors to your Video.  First, I will tell about some SEO related Terms so that I can explain it using these Terms easily. Everyday, a lot of People are doing their search on Search Engines like Google and YouTube by typing or speaking Words that are called as Keywords. And, Search Volume is the word used to represent the amount or quantity of searches that occur for a particular keyword or term, often expressed as searches per month. Search Competition is how many Pages/Videos on the internet include that term, thus, the number of Pages/Videos you will be competing against.


In normal days, the Search Volume and Search Competition will be almost constant for any Keyword.  i-e They will be in a Balanced State. In this State, it is difficult for your Video to get lots of Views by competing with existing Videos.
But sometimes, Search Volume will be increased suddenly due to some Events that may be either expected or unexpected.
For example, a lot of people will be searching about a Person who  is getting announced as a Nobel Prize Winner. That means, the Search Volume for the keywords related to that Person will be increased suddenly while the Search Competition is not getting changed much.  You can make use of this opportunity of increased Search Volume to get traffic to your YouTube Channel by uploading Videos related to this Trending Topic.

For making use of the expected Trending, like Sports Events, Political Meetings, Official Product Launch Events, Celebrity Birthdays and Festivals, you have to work in advance by preparing your Videos related to those Topics or Keywords. You need to keep a list of upcoming  planned Events and Festivals, and check your list regularly to create Videos about the Topics or Keywords related to those Events.

For making use of the  unexpected Trending, like any unofficial  Leak of any Product to be released soon, you should follow various News Agencies to get the News immediately,  and  you have to publish the Video immediately. You need to check Google Trends page and Twitter Trending List regularly, almost every Hour.

Moreover, Google and YouTube will give high priority to the New Videos that are related to the Trending Topics. The New Videos will be shown at top of the Search Results even when there were lots of good old Videos available for that Trending Topic. i-e Your New Videos will be treated like a News Article from  the well established News Websites. This is the Key for the success of creating Videos on Trending Topics.  Let me explain the reason why Google and YouTube are behaving like this, by saying an example.  Assume that there was a Heavy Rain in a particular Town.  Someone living in another Town will hear about this news through other  Media like Radio and TV.  He will do the Search on the Google or YouTube by typing the name of the Town with the expectation of seeing more details about the Rain.  Usually, many people will be doing search about any Town before visiting it. So, Obviously Google or YouTube should show the latest Articles or Videos related to the Heavy Rain than any other Good Old Articles or Videos, otherwise people may stop using Google or YouTube in the future. So, they have to behave in this manner. YouTubers can make use of this Trending Topics advantage, for getting more Views to their Videos. And make sure that you use it genuinely. Use it only for the Trending Topics that are related to your YouTube Channel and that are useful or interesting to your Target Audience. And, never try to include the Keywords of Trending Topics into  the Title/Description/Tag of your Videos which are actually not related to the Trending Topic.

I had published  a Book with Title "How to Earn from YouTube Videos?: My Experience with YouTube" to share my experience about earning Money by running  my YouTube Channel for many Years. If you are interested, you can buy it from Amazon. And, if you want me to spend significant time for reviewing your YouTube channel and Business Model, you can book my time and check my previous post to see the Price/Charge details.
