Get Ready for Winning with Denis Waitley!

Now Denis Waitley, author of The Psychology of Winning, The New Dynamics of Winning, The Inner Winner, Being the Best and Seeds of Greatness brings his talents, knowledge, and unique outlook to this definitive course on motivation. Denis Waitley's name is practically synonymous with success and motivation.

In this comprehensive program, he reveals the very latest scientific findings on what really motivates top achievers. What the researchers have found may surprise you. The fact is, getting motivated and staying motivated is almost entirely a learned trait. It's an ability you can acquire and put into practice in every area of your life! Truly successful people are a diverse group, but they all share an uncanny capacity for motivating themselves to new levels of achievement. Observing and learning from these winners has been Denis Waitley's life's work. Let the secrets he's discovered work for you.

You'll learn:

  • The six types of achievement motivation
  • How to create a "cognitive map" for achieving your goals
  • Improved decision-making methods and time-management strategies
  • Why having two goals can make both of them stronger
  • How to develop the determination to achieve whatever you desire

Time for an update.

This is a good book if you have never read anything on motivation. Lots of simple examples, no breakthroughs.

Very interesting and actionable reading

Very compelling book content. Easy to follow and helping the reader to understand why and how we do things, in relation to motivation as well as giving practical advice to get more out of life in general.

The audio book refers to accompanying material to do some of the self reflection exercises but there is no PDF to download when purchasing the audio book? Is it missing?

Outdated

I was a bit disappointed about the content. It sounds a bit outdated. The narrater speaks about listening to this 'on cassettes', still drives a car with a paper map instead of navigation and in the meantime lots of women have entered the workplace. It sounded old-fashioned.
This makes me question the 'up to date-ness' of the research used.
Also: I miss a reference table to the studies cited.
I think the more recent Motivation Master Course looks like a much better choice.
