Great Motivation Secrets of Great Leaders (POD): John Baldoni
Your faith is a long-distance run, Pastor John Van Pay tells us: an everyday endeavor to follow Jesus that will sometimes feel impossible, even painful. Faith is not always a comfort; it is often demanding. Living your faith means never giving up, but always surrendering - surrendering to Jesus Christ and the great purpose of God. To give us strength, Van Pay retells the inspirational stories of 20 believers in the Bible who persisted, endured, and thrived in their faith by applying the fundamental principles of endurance running to the single most important journey - the journey to loving and following God. 1.

From Inc.com´s most popular columnist, a counterintuitive--but highly practical--guide to finding and maintaining the motivation to achieve great things. It´s comforting to imagine that superstars in their fields were just born better equipped than the rest of us. When a co-worker loses 20 pounds, or a friend runs a marathon while completing a huge project at work, we assume they have more grit, more willpower, more innate talent, and above all, more motivation to see their goals through. But that´s not at actually true, as popular Inc.com columnist Jeff Haden proves. ´´Motivation´´ as we know it is a myth. Motivation isn´t the special sauce that we require at the beginning of any major change. In fact, motivation is a result of process, not a cause. Understanding this will change the way you approach any obstacle or big goal. Haden shows us how to reframe our thinking about the relationship of motivation to success. He meets us at our level--at the beginning of any big goal we have for our lives, a little anxious and unsure about our way forward, a little burned by self help books and strategies that have failed us in the past-and offers practical advice that anyone can use to stop stalling and start working on those dreams. Haden takes the mystery out of accomplishment, proving that success isn´t about spiritual awakening or a lightning bolt of inspiration --as Tony Robbins and adherents of The Secret believe--but instead, about clear and repeatable processes. Using his own advice, Haden has consistently drawn 2 million readers a month to his posts, completed a 107-mile long mountain bike race, and lost 10 pounds in a month. Success isn´t for the uniquely-qualified; it´s possible for any person who understands the true nature of motivation. Jeff Haden can help you transcend average and make lasting positive change in your life.

Motivation in the workplace may act as the driving force directing organization members toward set targets. When one should consider motivation among the workplace, what may first come to mind is monetary incentive. This, of course, is not the only form of incentive initiating motivation in the workplace. Other forms of incentive exist in praise or greater decision making in organization activities. Workplace motivation may require the presence of sound transformational leadership catering to both the person and situational variables in creation of a state of equity among members of the organization. It seems a democratic leadership style caters to motivation in the workplace as a function of customer satisfaction, purchase intention of customers, and eventual satisfaction of organization members. 1.

The Motivation Manifesto is a pulsing, articulate, ferocious call to claim our personal power. World-renowned high performance trainer Brendon Burchard reveals that the main motive of humankind is the pursuit of greater Personal Freedom. We desire the grand liberties of choice - time freedom, emotional freedom, social freedom, financial freedom, spiritual freedom. Only two enemies stand in our way: an external enemy, defined as the social oppression of who we are by the mediocre masses, and an internal enemy, a sort of self-oppression caused by our own doubt and fear. The march to Personal Freedom, Burchard argues, can be won only by declaring our intent and independence, stepping into our personal power, and battling through self-doubt and the distractions of the day until full victory is won. Recalling the revolutionist voices of the past that chose freedom over tyranny, Burchard - at times poetic yet always fierce - motivates us to free ourselves from fear and take back our lives once and for all. 1.

From a diet to regular jogging - most of us have many resolutions, where we first have to overcome our lack of will power, to pull through. Those who want to eventually make it, can choose hypnosis, to self-motivate themselves: ´´Get Motivation!´´ supports you in many areas of life - from losing weight to movement programmes up to your tax return. It is a great feeling when a task is completed successfully. But it is also always a challenge to attack everyday tasks with high motivation and to really master from A to Z! Though for those who don’t manage to motivate themselves, they battle all too often with self-doubt. Good resolutions don’t help at all. They only give us a guilty conscience. Self-motivation is asked for in such situations: The effect of motivation training or ´´mental coaching´´ is a method which is scientifically proven. ´´Get Motivation!´´ is intended for people who would like to get motivated, to complete diverse every day challenges, better and with more success. The positive suggestions support self-motivation specifically. The so called ´´quadruple effect´´ is used, where the suggestions are reacted four times in a row, like in a canon. ´´Get Motivation!´´ was designed by well-known German Hypnotherapist and certified alternative practitioner in psychotherapy Kim Fleckenstein. Based in Munich she already published a range of best-selling self-help and hypnosis programs. Her unique technique and self experiences have helped to create the special character and heart of her recordings. Together with professional and native speaker Cathy Weber she also publishes her programs in English.
