The Unlimited Potential Show I Relatable Self Development

Aug 31, 2022

At the end of the day, we all want to go to bed at night knowing we performed at our best…and every morning we should be motivated to perform at an even higher level than the day before. But what actually gives us this type of motivation? In this two-part series, we hope to answer that question and more. 

Hit play to hear our deep dive conversation on the topic of all things “motivation!”

Today's episode is actually inspired by a keynote speech Dr. Ram heard recently at a conference. The speech was called “5 ways of increasing performance amongst yourself or, and those you work with” by entrepreneurs and author Daniel Pink. 

The speech was so inspiring Dr. Ram took pages of notes during the presentation and started implementing Pink’s wisdom with his own team. Obviously, we knew he had to bring this level of gold to the podcast for you! 

If you have never heard of Daniel Pink before, he's actually the author of five New York Times bestselling books. Some of his titles you might have heard of is called The Power of Regret (his latest book.) 

Other titles include, When: The Scientific Secrets of Perfect Timing, To Tell is Human: The Surprising Truth About Moving Others, Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us, and more! 

He's also had his own show called Crowd Control on the National Geographic channel, he has been featured on PBS, ABC, and CNN, and he has a Ted talk, which is one of the most viewed Ted talks of all time with over 20 million views…and that’s just scratching the surface. 

During this conversation, we will share the research-backed way to geek you and your team performing at the best, what keeps us from making progress in life, the most meaningful work we can all do, and more!
