San Diego, CA, June 04, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Why is it that most diets fail? And most of us stop using the gym just months after buying a membership? And despite hundreds of millions spent on engagement programs, most Americans are still disengaged? Are people just lazy?

According to Susan Fowler, foremost expert on motivation and personal empowerment, no, we aren’t lazy—we just haven’t discovered the secret to mastering our motivation.

Susan reveals the secret in her iconoclastic new book, Master Your Motivation: Three Scientific Truths for Achieving Your Goals, published by Berrett-Koehler and released today.   In Master Your Motivation, Susan draws on the latest empirical research to show readers how to master—and maintain—their motivation by creating choice, connection, and competence, the three basic psychological needs at the heart of thriving in anything we do:

  • Choice: You need to feel like you've picked your path, not that you're being driven down it.
  • Connection: Your goal should be linked to people or a purpose meaningful to you.
  • Competence: You want to continually learn and grow. 

Through eye-opening stories and compelling real-world examples, readers learn innovative yet easy-to-apply strategies to experience a breakthrough in any given situation—from quitting smoking to thriving while working for a horrible boss. The book sheds lights on topics such as:

  • What the latest research tells us about people, their brains, and motivation
  • Why discipline and willpower are motivation RED flags
  • How to shift your outlook and get motivated to do anything
  • Top fatal distractions that stand in the way of our goals
  • Daily practices to hone your skill of motivation
  • How to keep others from killing your motivation mojo

Master Your Motivation has already received rave reviews:

More importantly, Master Your Motivation is the first book to teach a revolutionary idea: motivation is a skill you can use to achieve your goals—and sustain high performance.” —John Calipari, Hall of Fame basketball coach, University of Kentucky

“I have no doubt that the powerful ideas in Master Your Motivation will change your perspective about motivation. But what I love about this book is how Susan’s storytelling brings the skill of motivation to life with relevant examples you can begin using today.” —Tracie Lorber, Director of People and Culture, Peet’s Coffee
