Every day, salespeople, entrepreneurs, and ordinary people realize their dreams. How do they do it? How can you? What is the secret of their success?
Is it personality? Is it heredity? Is it education? All these are a part of it, of course. But, there is something more important than any of these--motivation--the burning desire to succeed.
As mail order sales success nonpareil, Joe Karbo, author of The Lazy Man's Way to Riches, "In a world that is constantly changing, there is no other skill--or set of skills--that can serve you as well, over your lifetime, as the fine art of motivation."
Yet how many of us can say we have mastered that art?
How to get motivated isn't part of any school or university curriculum. Think back. No teacher mentioned it, no catalogue lists it, no textbook outlined its how-tos. Yet considering the role it plays in your success in the educational system--and everything that comes afterward--you'd think it would be taught at every grade level, just like math and history.
Maybe it's omitted from standard educational curriculums because stoking yourself up for your work is supposed to be one of those thing-like sex and getting along with other people-that everyone is supposed to automatically know how to. But if so, the number of books and workshops devoted to improving one's love life and winning friends--not to mention motivation--shows how unwarranted such an assumption is.
If it were up to you to design such a course, what would you want it to teach? What would you want to learn?
What science says about motivation, and the basics of motivating yourself in the first lesson? How to draw on your own natural fund of motivational energy in the second? Would you like to have moved on to techniques for jump-starting energy and enthusiasm by the third?
You don't have to wait for Steven Covey and Zig Ziglar to start Motivation University. You'll find the three chapters of Part I have been written with your needs in mind. Consider it your "Motivation 101," the crash course in fundamentals you never got in school. One that's as easy to follow as Cliff Notes. Part II provides you with guidance through the thought and works of the world's greatest motivators.
HOW THIS BOOK WILL HELP YOU
If you are reading this, you are looking for additional motivational oomph! It might be in response to a nagging dissatisfaction, a general feeling that you aren't getting enough done.

In these pages are gathered everything you require to become a master motivator like Napoleon Hill or Steven Covey--a mini-workshop in a book. You'll even learn how to generate the motivation for "that awful stuff" you hate doing and keep postponing!
