If you want to accomplish what’s important to you, discipline and willpower won’t get you where you need to go. This iconoclastic new book reveals compelling insights and actions to help you master and maintain your motivation. Motivation is at the heart of everything you do and everything you want to do but don’t, and the ways we typically motivate ourselves – fear, guilt, or the promise of reward - don’t work. The author says motivation is energy, and what matters is the quality, not quantity, and that high-quality, optimal motivation is a skill that you can learn and apply. Science tells us that satisfying three basic needs—for choice, connection, and competence—is essential to optimal motivation. Through practical exercises and eye-opening stories, she shows you how to identify and shift the quality of your motivation. Mastering your motivation is important—it may be your greatest opportunity to evolve, grow in wisdom, and be the light the world so desperately needs.<\P>
