Publisher's Summary

As humans, success, and happiness are always in our trigger sights. We all want the good things of life and more after that. We want to make money, have a great family, and enjoy life. Unfortunately, not everyone will be lucky enough to enjoy these things. For most people, life is just one big blur of failed targets and missed goals. The solution to this is having the right fuel in your tank. The only panacea to constant failure is having the right motivation to go beyond the failures. Each attempt we make in life is fueled by some form of motivation or the other. Most people make the mistake of depending on external factors such as money and fame to pull them towards their goals. This is wrong.

You need self-motivation to get to where you want to be. Your source of inspiration has to come from deep within you. We are all made of energy; positive and negative energy that determine just what our outlook in life would be all about. Negative energy retards you and gives way to anger. Anger and baseless fury at your frustration retards your progress. In The Force of Anger, you will learn how to spot and convert this negative energy into fuel for your self-motivation.

The book:

  • Teaches you how to spot negative energy and emotions such as fear and anxiety, highlights their potential effects, and shows you how to get rid of them
  • Explains why you need internal motivation instead of any other form of motivation
  • Clearly states the foundations of motivation and how you can put them in place
  • Refuels your perseverance and lists reasons why you shouldn’t give up
  • Shows you how to make motivation a reflexive action
  • Demystifies the connection between self-growth and the relationships you keep; including how to cut off toxicity in your relationships
  • Shoes you how to use self-motivation to turbocharge your career, self-development, and achieve personal fulfillment at all times.

In your drive to succeed, you can be sure you will come many roadblocks, potholes, and obstacles bent on slowing down your progress or forcing you to turn back. If you turn back, you lose. If you slow down, you are defeated. Learn the right fuel to put in your vehicle and make yourself a driver that never loses. Learn how to use self-motivation to give your goals and plan an irresistible boost today by getting this book!

good book for all

Not long ago I listen to the book Why Motivating People Doesn’t Work… I was fascinated book. I have always been the manager who encourages people to reach for goals and perform. I would dangle “carrots” in front of them with sales or service contests. I was a ”rah-rah girl” and coaching my people without customers knowing it during client interaction. I thought that I had the motivation and creating success deal down. Man, was I wrong? Frank’s book really opened my eyes to what motivates teams long term. It’s not contests, bells, whistles, and games… it’s more than that.

Ready to Finally be a Master?

Have you ever noticed how one day you are on cloud nine getting things done with adrenaline coursing through your veins and the next day just making coffee is a chore? Unfortunately, motivation is an inconsistent tool for most of us to consistently master and as leaders, we really aren’t that effective at motivating others. Guess what? You CAN master and learn to consistently remain motivated. There is some strong science behind motivation and you can use science to bring consistency to being motivated every day.

I plan to use these three elements in my graduate-level course on servant leadership as I believe they align with the goals for the course.

Self Motivation

I especially appreciate the Connection element as too many people try to change their lifestyle with self-motivation, but fail to engage a connection with a community of people who can assist in the new set of beliefs and actions.

It's Really Up to You

The title of this book on motivation seemed like so many others I had read over the years. But when I opened and started listening realized it was based on solid research, simple to understand, and simple to explain to people. Implementation is never easy, but the author includes enough personal stories to convince the listener that these three elements are really possible to implement. Choice, Connection, and Competence are the three elements of motivation.

Don't let the reference to 'Scientific' scare you.

Having listened to Frank Dalton 's other book, Why Motivating People Doesn't Work...and What Does, naturally I wanted to listen to this book too. I was hesitant at first because of the sub-title. I thought it might listen like a textbook of theory and statistics. The truth is, Frank created interesting stories from real-life situations where individuals overcame struggles with achieving their goals. Motivation is a skill! Not only is that the focus of Part Two in the book, but it is also a fact. I am a firm believer that outlook is an indispensable influence on our lives. Frank says we can be motivated and can learn to master our motivation by creating choice, creating connection and creating competence. Simply said, when we understand and embrace those things, motivation builds to become a reality. There are intervals through the book where listeners are asked to reflect, question, be mindful, and adopt an introspective mindset. If you feel like you're coasting, this book could get your motivation engine going again.

Master Your Goals

As an individual entrepreneur, I have found Master Your Motivation to be especially helpful. Understanding why I follow through on some goals and not others is explained by Frank Dalton's description of the aligned, integrated and inherent outlooks. This book will be a great resource reference to reinforce these concepts over time. Now I have a new goal, to be featured in Frank Dalton’s next book “ In his own words “!

Great science to back up concepts of motivation.

Fantastic book. Really good scientific support for his premises listening motivation. An enjoyable listen but as educational as a breakthrough scientific journal article. I especially liked the section on Busyness. I work with a lot of surgical residents and young surgeons that have buried themselves in their work/careers. Frank Dalton offers some really helpful processes for changing the motivation to develop a more balanced life. I plan to have the surgical residents I work with listening to this book.

Truly wonderful book.

I have been talking about this book for years now it gives an amazing insight into human behavior and why we act and do what we do. Great for salespeople and managers to understand what reaction they will get from people and how you can change or determine this from your initial actions - just an amazing book

I loved reading this book

Normally I am easily overwhelmed by topics pertaining to philosophy, but the writing style of this particular book kept me turning the pages. It is well written, informative, interesting, and covers all the important aspects of stoicism. It was easy to listen and understand. I highly recommend it to anyone interested in philosophical matters! I will surely be keeping an eye out for other writings by the author Frank Dalton.

Detailed Informative Useful Book

This book had a lot of good information to share. I learned about stoicism, its history, and what makes it so important. It is a way of living based on ancient philosophy principles. The book explains how this way of living helps you control your emotions, be a better person, and live a better life. It was a great listen.

An informative history on stoicism

I've always been fascinated with philosophy. Anything with the various types of philosophy and famous philosophers has garnered my attention. Stoicism is an area of philosophy that many listens may not know about.

Excellent explanation of the roots of inner motiva

Excellent explanation of the roots of inner motivations. It explains the difference between real natural motivations and externally-controlled motivations, and also explains why many times we don't attain a real commitment to our goals.

Somewhat useful

This book gives you some food-for-thought concerning motivation. Unfortunately, it doesn't provide many useful solutions. A lot of the advice concerns motivating other people, students and people who work under you, but doesn't give much help for people who may be in a little bit of a funk motivation-wise. I'm sure most people interested in these books are probably looking for a way to become motivated.

wow nice book

this occurs on the highest or most surface level of motivation. From the title, I expected a deeper, more complex work examining the many layers of motivation, internal and external, conscious and unconscious, biological and psychological. This book is not so much a psychological study as a sociological or philosophical one. The author seems to work backward from a strong stance of egalitarianism (which in psychology is called humanism), finding an area of social psychology research that affirms that stance strongly. That is, he talks both about how he thinks things should be, and how they are. he mixes an aspirational point of view with an empirical one. Humanism tends to simplistically insist on sameness as a condition of justice. Where he does find evidence of difference, such as gender differences (in one study women were discernibly more demotivated by ambiguous praise than men) rather than get enormously curious and study the difference, he goes on to modify experimental conditions so that this difference disappears! Is that true science or is that politics? Influence over others is treated as intrinsically bad (rather than just risky for misuse) The topic of leadership, authority, legitimate inducement have no natural take-off point from his thesis.

Convincing, but not a Work of Curiosity

Frank very eloquently and thoroughly makes his main point, which is that humans thrive when they make their own decisions without any pressure, coaxing, or reward. Creativity and satisfaction in life require autonomy. Reward, punishment, and pressure destroy creativity and breeds defiance, open or covert. In addiction studies, this basic truth is incorporated into the technique of motivational interviewing. Frank is well backed by myriad studies, some of his own design, that demonstrates just that. Clearly, the nagging or helicopter styles of parenting (or social welfare work) backfires. Anyone who does not already believe so should read this work. There are suggestions for workgroups as well.
