Motivate Yourself: Get the Life You Want, Find Purpose and Achieve Fulfilment
  • Do you want to live life more fully, more authentically and more meaningfully, right down to the core of your existence?
  • Do you want to make a greater difference and contribution through your everyday involvement?
  • Do you want to feel more productive, more present, purposeful, satisfied and inspired by your life?

These are the fundamental questions covered by Andro Donovan in Motivate Yourself: Get the Life You Want, Find Purpose and Achieve Fulfilment- a thorough, practice-based book for business professionals, entrepreneurs and individuals who are asking themselves: Is this it? Where am I going? What's my purpose? Do I feel fulfilled? What next?

The thinking behind Motivate Yourselfis grounded in Donovan’s twenty years of working with top-level executives, who, whilst successful on the level of career achievements, still yearn to be more fully engaged and satisfied.

Her book is a step-by-step guide which shares proven principles that help readers find purpose and fulfilment by using techniques to pro-actively design their life with the end-goal in mind, determining in advance the outcomes they desire and path to get there.

“The need for personal development often starts with a niggling feeling, deep down, that something isn’t quite right,” says Donovan. “Sometimes it can be hard to put your finger on. But, there the feeling is, trying to make itself known.”

Divided into three parts which look in turn at how the reader can:

  • Discover Yourself: A Journey to You
  • Free Yourself: What Gets in the Way of Your Happiness?
  • Motivate Your Life: Design the Life You Want to Live,

Each chapter contains practical exercises designed to encourage the reader to take appropriate action, along with case studies, personal planning tools and links to exclusive online content.

Donovan has helped all kinds of people, from troubled teenagers to CEOs of global corporations. Whatever the reader’s background, the book will help them to:

  •  Quieten that negative inner voice that inhibits their personal growth
  • Wake up to the possibility and opportunity of a different way of living
  • Learn how to motivate those around them with productivity at the centre of everything they do, and
  • Challenge themselves to discover who they really are and what they are truly capable of achieving

Motivate Yourself offers practical strategies to carry the reader beyond the self-doubt of ‘could I?’ and ‘should I?’ into a world of ‘want to', ‘love to’ and ‘will do’.
