“Motivation needs to justify why we’re doing what we’re doing.” — Brian Buffini

In this episode, Brian Buffini delves into the concept of motivation, from what it is (and isn’t) to why we need it to succeed. You’ll learn the difference between motivation and inspiration, why most people fear success more than failure, and three fool-proof ways to get and stay motivated, including getting a coach or accountability partner.
