In the hyper-connected, hyper-digitized world in which we are living, the time has come to revise Abraham Maslow's classic "hierarchy of needs" a pyramid of human drives that places the basic needs of safety and sustenance at the bottom. Burchard, a world-renowned motivational speaker and best-selling author, makes a compelling case that it's time for an entirely new approach to understanding what drives human ambition and achievement today; it's time to change the conversation about what it takes to succeed and feel alive and fulfilled in a stressful, chaotic, distracted world.
In The Charge: Activating the 10 Human Drives that Make You Feel Alive, Burchard, using pioneering studies from the fields of positive psychology and neuroscience, as well as great stories from his own experience, identifies the ten simple drives of human emotion and happiness: Control, Competence, Congruence, Caring, Connection, Change, Challenge, Creative expression, Contribution, and Consciousness. The Charge provides the keys to understanding and activating these drives in clear and concrete ways that will inspire and help everyone find the one thing we all are searching for: more life in our lives.

really useful book - things explained meaningfully. And words backed up with understanding and I even would say compassion. it's all the times good to read/listen a book there author really wants to share something to you because he believes it really gonna help you rather than just telling what kinda life hack he found.
Highly recommend this to everybody!

This is the second book I've read by Brendon. The first was 'High Performance Habits'. The fact that he reads the books himself is a big aspect of why I liked the book. The content is life changing and is read with such enthusiasm. Great work.

Good info ?
Good info, if not completely new...
I appreciate the intent of this book BUT
it lost me with the less than inspiring presentation. I think he should hire a professional narrator. He sounds like an infomercial speaker the whole time, trying so hard to relate to the audience, but sounding plastic. Ugh! He needs to work on learning to speak naturally. Just TALK to people. Stop performing. Huge turn off.

Good but a bit fictitious
Interesting perspectives but a bit to "diary" like and to much religion related discussions. Great book though, thanks!
