How to stay motivated during a prolonged job search

You must appear to be at your best during your job hunting no matter what.  Employers and recruiters will not understand if you're having an off day.  They won't care.  They'll be on to the next candidate.  Motivating your self to perform at peak levels aint easy, so let me give you a hand.  Actually let me refer a book.  I don't do this often but since it's one I read  every day – I thought I should share it.  Allan C. Elliot has written what I belive amounts to the best collection of short stories [1 page each] on the planet.  "A Daily Dose of the American Dream: Stories of Success, Triumph and inspirtaion", encapulates the lives of Kodak, Hewlett & Packard, Cross, Disney — all people who have become hosuehold names or at least their companies have.  The true-to-life stories of Calvin Clien, Bob Hope, and Edison where filled with hardships most people would faint at hearing.  So if you need a shot in the arm every now and then I suggest you pick this gem up and read it cover to cover.
