The present paper is an attempt to formulate a positive theory of motivation which will satisfy these theoretical demands and at the same time conform to the known facts, clinical and observational as well as experimental. It derives most directly, however, from clinical experience. This theory is, I think, in the functionalist tradition of James and Dewey, and is fused with the holism of Wertheimer, Goldstein, and Gestalt Psychology, and with the dynamicism of Freud and Adler. This fusion or synthesis may arbitrarily be called a ´general-dynamic´ theory. It is far easier to perceive and to criticize the aspects in motivation theory than to remedy them. Mostly this is because of the very serious lack of sound data in this area. I conceive this lack of sound facts to be due primarily to the absence of a valid theory of motivation. The present theory then must be considered to be a suggested program or framework for future research and must stand or fall, not so much on facts available or evidence presented, as upon researches to be done, researches suggested perhaps, by the questions raised in this paper.

Self-discipline is one of the most vital qualities that everyone should consider honing. The problem is that it is not that easy to develop. In fact, you can find a lot of people struggling to build the kind of discipline they need to start doing something about their life. For instance, if you have trouble waking yourself up early in the morning even if you know that you need to do it, then it means that you have to start doing something to discipline yourself to develop that habit. The same goes if you have a difficult time pushing yourself to do certain tasks or finishing them on time. Not being able to push yourself to exercise on a regular basis or eat a balanced diet each time is also one of the scenarios that are caused by your lack of self-discipline. The good news is that self-discipline is a trait you can really hone, provided you put your heart and mind to it. All it takes is to motivate yourself and prevent making all sorts of excuses. Keep in mind that self-discipline is a trait which pushes you to do something even if you don´t like that activity. Doing something for the sole reason that you love doing it does not encompass discipline. It actually involves being able to push yourself to do something you don´t like, but you know fully well that is good for you. You may not enjoy doing it at first. However, your consistency will definitely provide you with great rewards - sometimes even greater than the contentment you´ll gain from other activities. If you want to start transforming your life and make yourself better, then know that developing self-discipline is crucial in attaining it. Fortunately, this book, Self-Discipline: A Practical Guide to Gain Confidence, Build Motivation and Master Willpower, is now around to serve as your comprehensive guide. With all the information provided in this book, you will have an easier time honing your self-discipline. 1. Language: English.

The legendary college football coach and analyst, Lou Holtz once said: ´´When all is said and done, more is said than done.´´ These few, yet extremely profound words explain one of the biggest predicaments that individuals face today. Many of us as individuals say we want to be successful, happy, and influential. Yet, very, very few of us follow up what we say - whether said to others or ourselves - with specific actions that move us directly toward those goals. The idea of being successful is an attractive dream that fills us with positive emotions. Whereas the actions required to be successful (at work, in our relationships, in sports competition, etc.) are often difficult and lengthy. The desire to be genuinely happy is a universal goal toward which nearly every individual and advanced society aspires. But, the actions required to achieve deep and sustained happiness (some call it ´´joy´´) require us to often delay temporary gratification and ´´quick fixes´´ to problems. And, saying that we want to achieve a level of influence, either as a leader of others in the workplace, an influential member of the community, or as an admired parent and spouse, is far easier than the gut wrenching decisions, enormous amounts of personal time, and direct truth-telling that are required. It´s this gap - which can often feel as large, distant and mysterious as a black hole - between what we say we want, and what we must do to achieve it, that separates those who are able to turn their dreams into their destiny. So what do we need to bridge this gap between what we say we want, and what we must do to achieve it? We need goal-oriented motivation. What would it mean to you to learn how to develop this kind of motivation on-demand, sustain this motivation through the difficult periods of life, and instill this motivation so intricately into your daily life that you make the very idea of motivation unnecessary? All of that and more is available to you in this cutting-... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Brian Tracy, Dan Strutzel.

You would like to be more athletic? Because you realize that you would be more satisfied with yourself and more balanced out? And because your body would feel much better? But you just simply can´t seem to motivate yourself to regularly exercise? ´´Get Moving!´´ digs deep into your subconscious and can alter obstructive patterns of behavior with positive affirmation, making it a little bit easier each day to exercise and to outwit your weak willpower. Your desire to become more active and more fit will become stronger and stronger and you will be more motivated because not only your interest in exercising will increase but also the love you have for yourself - and you won´t be the only one to experience this positive change, but others will notice it too. ´´Get Moving!´´ is an effective relaxation training that utilizes classic hypnosis and mental coaching techniques. The program is geared toward young people and adults who would like to exercise (more) but just can´t seem to motivate themselves. Even people who are already active but need an injection of motivation every once in a while or are working toward an athletic goal can highly benefit from this program. Kim Fleckenstein will inspire you during this motivational training with targeted suggestions to motivate you and put an end to your lack of willpower! Do not listen to this program while operating a motor vehicle or during any other activity that requires your full attention. This program does not replace a doctor or any other medical aids. The best effect can be achieved by listening to this program once a day over a period of four weeks. The audiobook consists of two chapters.
