The Unlimited Potential Show I Relatable Self Development

Sep 14, 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. 

If you haven’t listened to parts one and two of this conversation, go back and do so before jumping in! We cover a few powerful concepts and contexts we think all leaders should know. If you have already heard episodes 78, and 79, hit play to hear the conclusion to 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 those you work with” by entrepreneurs and author Daniel Pink. 

The speech was so inspiring Dr. Ram took pages of notes during the presentation. Obviously, we knew he had to bring this level of gold to the podcast for you! At this point in this conversation, we have made a compelling case for leaders about what it takes on a practical and physiological level to motivate your team. 

We have covered five simple research back methods that you can start implementing immediately. In this show, we want to drive home the concept and difference between “extrinsic and intrinsic motivation” and share how some of the biggest companies in the world like Google are using these tips and tricks. 

Whether you are a leader to many, a parent to one, or just someone who wants to get better at encouraging people, we hope this series is exactly what you need to unlock your next level of potential. There is greatness inside of you, we are just here to help bring it out! 

After you’re finished with today’s show, it’s time to take action! What’s one thing you can take from these episodes about “motivation” and start applying it in your own life? Let us know! Reach out to us and join the Unlimited Potential Community! Follow the links below to learn more.
