Overview

Praise for Driven

"My Junoon is to help the world in not only recognizing the ill effects caused by illiteracy but also eradicating it."
GREG MORTENSON, bestselling coauthor of Three Cups of Tea

"To achieve our personal best, we each need to tap into that extraordinary human motivation to do something great–what Razi Imam calls 'Junoon.' It is what drives my passion for helping individuals, groups, and corporations achieve their highest accomplishments through forming stronger, lasting relationships."
KEITH FERRAZZI, bestselling author of Never Eat Alone and Who's Got Your Back

"Driven is a groundbreaking book that will energize our society to take action to make our world a better place to live. My Junoon is to support and empower young women who are unfortunate victims of trauma, addiction, and abuse."
MICHAEL BOSWORTH, bestselling author of Solution Selling and coauthor of Customer Centric Selling

"Driven introduces a fascinating new concept of motivation. My own Junoon hit when I was overcome with the need to develop a resource to help small companies win big contracts. The result? SellingtoBigCompanies.com and thousands of successful entrepreneurs."
JILL KONRATH, bestselling author of Selling to Big Companies and Snap Selling

"My Junoon is to help the world understand that there is no reality, there are only perceptions. If we are to fix large-scale global problems, we need to use marketing principles to deal with these perceptions."
AL RIES, author or coauthor of eleven bestselling marketing books

"It is rare when you find a formula to bridge the business and academic worlds. Razi Imam's Driven accomplishes the task. This is a love story. The love of and application of positive obsession. The love of the hunt for and continued pursuit of success. I have known Razi for years, and he is a living example of Driven. He is a gifted communicator who will have a lifelong impact on you."
PETER J. ROMAN, Director of Global Accounts, Eaton Corporation, and Adjunct Professor of Marketing, Carnegie Mellon University's Tepper School of Business

    Hope For All

    I wish "Driven" had been available before I retired as a college professor. For 42 years, I taught English at Penn State University. I would have made the book required reading for its creative writing style and for its message of hope and inspiration for anyone wishing to succeed personally, professionally, and communally. The theme of "Driven" by Razi Imam is Junoon-"the state of obsession to achieve the impossible." The book's sub-title is "A How-To Strategy For Unlocking Your Greatest Potential." Most how-to books are written in a third person point of view in a technical,objective manner. What makes this book appealing and interesting to read is its first person narrative style. What makes the read even more compelling is the narrative framework of a quest - one person's passionate search to find the "answer to what makes ordinary people achieve the impossible." Another imaginative touch to this how-to book is the suspense and intrigue of the search. The answers to the narrator's questions are revealed gradually during late night encounters and conversations in a dimly-lit section of a library. Two mysterious beings - Mir Pacha and Mir Kotti - appear, disappear, and reappear the next day to help the narrator understand Junoon. What the narrator learns are the "five cascading waves of Junoon":pure inspiration, sixth sight, fanatic focus, metaphysical energy, and social Junoon. On one level, these are presented as a business plan for success. On a higher level they are presented as a way to "uplift humanity." Imam's book gives great hope to all. Its premise is that "ordinary people" can achieve Junoon. The power for extraordinary achievement is not limited to a special few. Each of us has the inherent power to attempt the unbelievable and achieve the impossible. Mark Francis Professor of English

    A Must Read!

    A wonderful read! I just could not put the book down once I started reading it. It just makes a great sense and helps in discovering and understanding a force that is already within us, yet not generally tapped into or directed towards a constructive and positive use. I am a sucker for personal help books and have read quite a few, but this book stands out because of its writing style and approach and more importantly the message that is so powerful yet simple. A must read for all age groups.

    My Junoon - Helping young girls build self-esteem

    Read the book recently. It resonated strongly with me because I am a recent empty-nester Mom. I suddenly found myself with lots of time and a vague desire to make a meaningful contribution to the world around me. But I had no idea where to begin. The book forced me to figure out MY Junoon - to help young girls build self-esteem - and really commit to it. It has brought me one step closer to having a meaningful project in my life. And for that, I am thankful.

    Author is a spammer.

    I had never heard of this book until I got a spam message from the author trying to sell it to me. I would suggest that you do not by this book because to do so would help to enrich someone who contributes to the problem of junk email. The best way to discourage people from sending junk email is to make the result of sending spam injurious, instead of beneficial. Please discourage this spammer by not buying his book. If you're in the market for a book like this, buy one from someone else who writes on the same topic. Tell your friends and family not to buy this book or anything else the author writes.

    Here's the junk message I got from the author (my name is not Jerry):

    Jerry,

    With the holiday season almost upon us, I have to ask - have you thought about what to get those readers in your life? How about those employees that need a little focus and direction? Introduce them to the concept of "Junoon" with my new book - Driven.

    Great companies have leaders that not only have a passion for excellence, but have the ability (and desire) to transfer this passion to the rest of the company. Steve Jobs and Herb Kelleher are great leaders, but until they were able to inspire their teams to strive for greatness, not only in their own industries, but throughout the business world, their success was limited. These leaders and others at companies such as Intel and Google have done what few others have ever accomplished - develop a culture that is passionate and emotionally committed to fulfilling the goals of their leaders. These leaders have Junoon - an ancient expression that refers to a very powerful state of achievement.

    Whether a student, husband/wife, employee, team leader, department head, owner, or CEO - everyone can benefit from learning the five traits of Junoon. Throughout this easy to read book, I introduce the five traits and share examples from my own life as well as the lives of leaders who have changed the world. Additionally, I provide answers to questions such as these:

    What is Junoon?
    Where does it come from?
    How does it help you become a better leader?
    And perhaps most importantly,
    How does it keep your own motivation at peak levels and empower you to motivate those around you?
    Jerry, you can go directly to Amazon or Barnes & Noble to see reader's reviews and get your copy of Driven. Or visit my website to learn more about me, the book, as well as download a free chapter and a free workbook to use as you read the book.

    To your own success,

    Razi
