Summary Description

The Motivation Myth by Jeff Haden is a counterintuitive, but highly practical, guide to finding and maintaining the motivation to achieve great things.

As Haden observes it’s comforting for most people 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 Haden goes on to say that's not actually true.  "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 the process, not a cause.  Understanding this will change the way you approach any obstacle or big goal.
As you listen to Big Ideas from The Motivation Myth,you’ll how to reframe your thinking about the relationship of motivation to success.   Haden takes the mystery out of accomplishment, proving that success isn't about spiritual awakening or a lightning bolt of inspiration, but instead, it’s about clear and repeatable processes. 
As you’ll see, success isn't just for the uniquely qualified; it's possible for any person who understands the true nature of motivation.  This program will help you transcend “average” and make lasting positive changes to your life. 

Once you've listened to Big Ideas from The Motivation Mythyou'll be ready to put its powerful insights to work in your business and life.
