Success Expert Tamara Lowe Shares Secrets to Motivation in New Book

While the economic downturn has most people wondering what they can do just to keep their bottom line from shrinking, “Get Motivated” seminar speaker and author Tamara Lowe encourages readers that they can not only survive, but thrive, by putting into practice the motivational secrets she shares in her new book due out late this month.

“Most motivational books offer little more than recycled platitudes and simplistic solutions,” Lowe said. “I don’t like hype—I like results! The insights and methodology in my book offer a fresh and practical approach to achievement.”

Subtitled “Overcome any Obstacle, Achieve any Goal and Accelerate your Success with Motivational DNA,” the book’s strategies are grounded in an 8-year study with 10,000 participants. Lowe has identified a powerful achievement system that identifies a person’s unique Motivational DNA, revealing their drives (D), needs (N) and their preferred manner of recognition and award (A). Lowe uses the results of the study to teach readers how they can best motivate themselves and those around them – from employees and co-workers to spouses and even moody teenagers!

Complete with a Motivational DNA profile that identifies what motivates and “de-motivates” readers– “Get Motivated” empowers individuals and teams to achieve their toughest goals. The motivational types are examined in detail with advice on how to start capitalizing on the new-found knowledge right away.

In addition to the personal benefits readers will receive from Lowe’s groundbreaking motivational insights, children around the world will be the beneficiaries as Lowe has selected charitable organizations to receive the proceeds from the book’s sales. Lowe is donating 100 percent of her royalties to 36 children’s charities including World Vision, Toys for Tots, Teen Challenge, Feed the Children, Operation Smile and Big Brothers Big Sisters. This stems from Lowe’s own childhood struggles and her desire to “give back.”

Lowe shares many personal stories in the book, beginning with how she overcame a background of drug addiction and being a junior high school drop-out, to becoming a successful businesswoman and a mother of two self-motivated teen and pre-teen boys. Lowe’s motivational secrets also translate well to helping children and teens realize their potential, making this book as necessary and important to parenting as to business success.

Lowe’s company, Get Motivated Seminars, produces the largest business seminars on earth and has given her an up-close and personal look at some of the world’s most successful individuals – in business, politics, entertainment, sports, etc. Lowe shares stories of many of these individuals and how they capitalized on their motivational type to achieve the success they have today. Personal stories from Lowe’s book include her experiences with former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, beloved entertainer Jerry Lewis, Hall of Fame quarterback Joe Montana, and former Secretary of State Colin Powell.

With a glowing foreword from former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani – a longtime and popular speaker at the Get Motivated seminars – “Get Motivated” promises to tell readers:

  • How to Decode Your Motivational DNA
  • What to do When You Don’t Want to Do Anything
  • How to Hire the Motivated and Motivate Those You’ve Hired
  • Easy Ways to Deal with Difficult People
  • The Formula for Beating Stress While Meeting Deadlines
  • How to Raise Positive, Self-Motivated Children
  • How to Kick Your Team’s Performance- and Your Profits- Into High Gear

Also included in each chapter of “Get Motivated” are free online tools and resources available from Get Motivated Seminars, including podcasts of Lowe and other speakers, telephone coaching sessions, unlimited use of the motivational type test, organizational forms, time management tools, and executive book summaries of best-selling books.
