Most people would like to be more motivated. For years, gurus and ‘life coaches’ have urged people to improve their lives by changing the way they think and behave, but scientific research has revealed that many of their techniques, from visualization to self-affirmation, are ineffective.

Not worth it
There must be better advice on motivation out there. I regret spending my monthly credit on this audiobook since it’s quite short and not very insightful, especially for someone who has read other books on the topic of motivation.
The last chapter deals with weightloss and suggests eating in front of a mirror, which reminds me of “tips” I’ve read in pro anorexia forums - not a great idea and possibly triggering to ED sufferers.
The whole concept probably works better in written form, since it’s made up almost like a work-book with questionnaires to fill out.
Not completely terrible, but wouldn’t recommend the audiobook.
