Hype (Motivation) and Action
There is a lot to be said for motivating words, especially if they make you feel better. Of course, it is also sad to get all pumped up by someone or something only to be deflated when your expectations aren’t met. Like making a new relationship, it is good to approach with caution, lest you be hurt too easily. This is a motivational book, I believe, and that is partially my intent, but the motivational part is also the by-product of techniques that work and my own sense of enthusiasm. In several chapters, I will discuss the role of attitude and creating your own hype in a sense, but it all boils down to your intent.
If you are looking for ways to become more energized, more focused, and more productive, your intent is to create, and if you are creating something wonderful, you will be enthusiastic about it. It is enthusiasm that is being roused by a good motivational text; it is your own sense of power and your ability to change and create. Whenever you speak enthusiastically about what you are doing or who you are, it is magnetic. People are drawn to others who are excited about something. It can be very serious or dark even, but you can still have enthusiasm about it. And since we all want to be happier in some respect or more joyous, then enthusiasm is one of the things we can look forward to. And it is something we can create.
In the chapters and the workbook, we will unlock your own stories and concepts that will generate interest from other people and the press.
