Motivated for Greatness – 100 Strategies to Keep You Inspired


Motivation is what drives you to achieve goals in life. Without it, any task you will perform will feel dry and empty. It is one of the core differences between a hard-working person and a hard-working machine. Also, motivation acts like a sort of adrenaline rush in the blood stream. It can make you achieve things which you normally cannot. It is like the fuel that keeps a fire burning.

But like any fuel, motivation can also run out. Sometimes, it can just dry up on its own. This is especially true if the goals being pursued still appear so far away. That is why motivation is something that needs to be renewed from time to time just as you would refuel a car once its fuel tank is empty.

This book provides you 100 strategies to keep you inspired and motivated to achieve greatness. It’s not a matter of if but a matter of when.

“Byron Garrett is one of the most positive people I know. He is humble, talented and lives his best life! When he speaks to an audience, one can feel his positive energy radiate throughout the room. He has spoken to staff at one of the districts I served and I plan to bring him again to speak to staff and students. I have copies of his books and I always give a book away to a student or adult that may need guidance in their lives. Byron’s message is simple and true. He will inspire and motivate! He is one of kind. I am blessed to know him.”
