From the author of the number-one New York Times and number-one audio bestseller The Millionaire Messenger, an electrifying and inspiring work that provides the keys to motivating yourself to satisfy your highest, most essential creative and intellectual needs.
In the hyper-connected, hyper-digitized world in which we are living, the time has come to revise Abraham Maslow's classic "hierarchy of needs" a pyramid of human drives that places the basic needs of safety and sustenance at the bottom. Burchard, a world-renowned motivational speaker and best-selling author, makes a compelling case that it's time for an entirely new approach to understanding what drives human ambition and achievement today; it's time to change the conversation about what it takes to succeed and feel alive and fulfilled in a stressful, chaotic, distracted world.
In The Charge: Activating the 10 Human Drives that Make You Feel Alive, Burchard, using pioneering studies from the fields of positive psychology and neuroscience, as well as great stories from his own experience, identifies the ten simple drives of human emotion and happiness: Control, Competence, Congruence, Caring, Connection, Change, Challenge, Creative expression, Contribution, and Consciousness. The Charge provides the keys to understanding and activating these drives in clear and concrete ways that will inspire and help everyone find the one thing we all are searching for: more life in our lives.

"The Charge is an inspiring guide to the one thing we all want: more life in our lives. Brendon Burchard proves that we can harness our emotional drives to feel more alive, and that it's our internal charge that helps us meet life's challenges with joy and courage. I love this book." (Paulo Coelho, New York Times bestselling author of The Alchemist)
“There hasn't been a game-changing book on personal development in a long time. The wait is over. The Charge confronts our very notions of what drives us as humans, and after reading this book you’ll find a new internal charge that’s stronger and more energized than you ever imagined possible.” (Jack Canfield, Co-author of the Chicken Soup for the Soul series and author of The Success Principles)
Yes! It's a game-changer.

Amongst the top 5 audio books in self development
There are times when we need a wake up call to challenge how we do things and how we can go about to change our behaviors. This book provides many inspiring stories to help the readers change, challenge and to bring about creative expression and consciousness to achieve the forward drive.
I like the part where the author shared about sharing our voice first before we can find it. Often we think of finding our voice first before we go out and share it.
I enjoy listening to the ideas and stories. He makes it come alive and real. He challenges us to bring out the best in ourselves, by using great questions. Most of the answers to the questions lie within ourselves and we need to reflect on them.
Really energising and thought provoking. The technics are easy to implement and follow.

it ranks in about the middle of the heap
Listening to audio has many benefits for me including this was read by the author and he hands out a lot of enthusiasm, mostly the story has a perspective given by someone who knows how to motivate people, is successful himself, and gives actual events and thoughts.
This is the first I have listened too but for the free performances which persuaded me to buy this book.
The delivery of the material was great -- one of the best narrators I've heard. This is the author and he's very engaged in the material.
I confess I didn't complete listening to the book. I went about an hour and a half into it and then decided it wasn't for me. I should have guessed before I purchased it. Ten things .... ten things you need to do to get a charged life. Most people are challenged trying to change more than 3 things in their lives. Ten is way too much. In addition, he loads each separate item with myriad suggestions and to-dos. I felt overwhelmed, not inspired. He is obviously speaking to people who are much farther along in their spiritual development than me and want to load their lives up with creativity and meaning. I just wanted some motivation to get off my butt. This is not a motivational book for people who are struggling or depressed. In my short listening time, I didn't hear anything about confronting pain or fear. Maybe it's somewhere later in the book? I'm trying another author now.
I am so glad I found this service!
Advice ranged from too situation specific or too vague and broad. Still uplifting and inspiring. Hard to focus on questions while driving, so better left for passive listening.
Brendon Buchard has established himself as a
Leader in the world of Personal Development. I love his work because it's presented in manageable sections, with actionable items in a step-by-step manner to re-engage with your life's purpose. Huge fan.
not a brilliant book. it is a stephen r covey rip-off. read the seven habits of highly effective people instead. author who reads his own book comes over as very conceited.
