New Book on How to Motivate the People in your Life (including Curmudgeons and Journalists)
"Wisdom in the Weirdest Places" - a collection of the most popular articles from the internationally syndicated column "The Un-Comfort Zone" - has been published.
How often are you feeling drained, overwhelmed, and unable to find the energy to go after your most important goals? Wisdom in the Weirdest Places explores the many aspects of motivation from inspiring others (employees, customers, volunteers, even family members), to self-motivation. Here you'll find the "How To" for achieving your dreams.
Rob has examined much of the world’s tried and true wisdom. Through his experience and studies, he has discovered that the path to success is often right in front of us. The problem is that we can’t see it because our vision is clouded by doubt and fear.
This book will empower you; enrich your life; and make you enthusiastic about the opportunities that surround you. It's about successful living.
In these stories you'll delve into motivational concepts that range from the simple to the complex. You'll go from observing others who have already achieved what you want, to digging deep into your subconscious to find out what is holding you back.
This book, at times a memoir, is a self-help book that is informative, touching, and sometimes funny. These compelling and easy to read stories are written to be timeless so that you can read them at any time and in any order.
