Stefan Falk shares his secrets to loving your work and succeeding like never before. He teaches you how to gain intrinsic motivation, overcome procrastination, and improve concentration so you can learn skills faster, sustain high levels of work satisfaction, and work towards any dream or goal you have.

We’ve all experienced lack of motivation or dissatisfaction with work at some point in our life. It’s common for people to feel like their work is boring, uninteresting, difficult, or uncomfortable, yet we continue to stay in those jobs. This begs the question: Do we need to love our work in order to have a good, successful life? 

If you’re struggling to find motivation from within or find enjoyment in your work, this episode is for you. “Figuring out how to tap into that energy in a smart way, to unlock our intrinsic motivation, I think that is actually the key challenge that humans should take on,” he says.

Stefan Falk is an internationally-recognized performance coach who helps people achieve things they don’t think they’re capable of. He’s also the author of “Intrinsic Motivation: How to Love Your Work and Succeed as Never Before”.
