We may not like to admit it, but we all know from personal experience that motivation is temporary. With this in mind, I approached Motivation That Works with some reservations. Fortunately, author Zev Saftlas also knows that motivation on its own does not last, so he created the Motivational Blueprint. It is a seven step process to identify your goal and maintain the motivation you need to achieve it. In Step 1, you identify your goal. Step 2 allows you to flesh out why you want to achieve it. You then commit to your goal and take responsibility in Step 3, become a student of success in Step 4 and visualize your success in Step 5. You start improving your self-image and beliefs in Step 6, and renew your commitment daily through Step 7. Each step contains a great collection of stories and quotes that bring the concepts to life. The concepts themselves are not necessarily new or earth-shattering. What makes this book unique, effective and worthwhile is the Motivational Blueprint. If you are tired of having your motivation fizzle with time, plug yourself in to the Motivational Blueprint to 'get motivated and stay motivated'.
