“Conformity is the jailer of freedom and the enemy of growth.” – John F. Kennedy
Absolutely one of the best books on human drive and motivation and what it all means individually and collectively is The Motivation Manifesto: 9 Declarations to Claim Your Personal Power by Brendon Burchard! I was very pleasantly surprised to discover that this is not a copy-cutter version of every motivational book on the market. Burchard’s book is truly unique and will re-awaken the dormant parts of you, stir you and move you to go after and experience all that you seek and want, and will give you authentic encouragement. Brendon Burchard is an inspirational force who has become one of the top motivational speakers and teachers on this planet!
In this fabulous book, Burchard explains the nine declarations of personal power available to all of us and explains why they are important and how to live these declarations. The book is split into two sections: human nature and the nine declarations. The author thoroughly explains the universal fear that we, as human beings, all experience; the freedom we all seek and why; and human motivation and how it works. In his words,” We can feel motivated to move forward or to halt, to grow or to shrink, to settle or to chase greatness. The actions we take in life are often based on whether our internal logic and impulses lead towards fear or freedom.”
The second section of The Motivation Manifesto: 9 Declarations to Claim Your Personal Power by Brendon Burchard explains the nine declarations to claim our personal power, a power that is available to all of us. This section is rich with personal and collective examples, practical advice and wisdom that expound upon the meaning of and importance of the declarations.
What an inspirational book! I highly recommend this book for anyone who truly is looking for not only a practical way to fully engage in life, but the meaning behind why (as struggling human beings), we behave as we do. It has inspired me to recommit to living my life with purpose every day, to live more passionately and loving, to pursue excellence and growth, and to step outside my comfort zone, for there, according to Brendon Burchard (and I agree) is true freedom and passion. It was a wonderful book to read for the beginning of a new year!
