About the Author

Mohammad Yunus is a writer cum editor who developed a passion for Psychology during his college life. He graduated from University of the Punjab in 1958 and joined ‘Pakistan Airlines‘ as a trainee engineer. Yunus was in a state of depression while studying at college. He was advised by his principal to read ‘Psychology books’. Soon, this boy started to take notes of voluminous books of Psychology and lengthy articles for overcoming his depression. He has done a great job by compiling those notes in the form of a book, entitled, ‘Magic Words of Inspiration’.

My encounter with the book

I came across this fine book while ransacking the ‘Developmental Psychology‘ section of the central library at my University. This was not what I had to study, but as I sifted through the pages of this book, I could feel the positive vibes fuming out of it! Devotedly, I spent 4 hours to carefully read and understand this book (forgetting my real work). The title itself was truly captivating, ‘Magic Words of Inspiration’. Each and every word of this book is magical. In this review, I’ll share some parts that touched my heart the most, while reading the book.


This book offers simple yet effective self-help guidelines for people belonging to all walks of life. Mohammad Yunus shares his thoughts on discrete topics that somehow shape our lives. The book argues that to achieve success we need to follow a clear strategy and adhere to some essential rules. As Yunus relates the concept of ’cause and effect’ with the steps to be taken for achieving goals. Each sentence of this book concisely conveys a phenomenon. This is a result of 10 years of study that the author has done to share invaluable suggestions that are backed by logical arguments. He discusses the following topics in an organized way:

  1. The Present
  2. Age and Time
  3. Thinking
  4. Decision – Initiative – Action
  5. Planning
  6. Success and Failure
  7. Do not get Victimized
  8. Career and Education
  9. Enthusiasm
  10. Enjoy Work
  11. Perseverance
  12. Faith and Prayer
  13. Self Confidence and Courage
  14. Fear and Worry
  15. Mood and Temper
  16. Healthy Attitude
  17. Character and Virtue

  20. Health
  21. Habits
