Some are motivated by movement, especially water movement.

Do you struggle to get motivated in the mornings?

Do you start out all “reved up” with your goals only to lose steam by the end of the week?

Do you wonder how others keep their motivation even when they hit obstacles?

You are not alone.  Everyone has and needs different motivation.

What Really Motivates You?

If you are having problems getting motivated, then maybe it’s how you are “wired” and need to be motivated. It goes without saying that different people are motivated by different things.  Therefore, different people need different motivational strategies. 

People also need to see different results. In other words, there are no cookie-cutter solutions when it comes to individual motivational strategies. 

So, Why Motivational DNA?

Like a fingerprint, everyone is unique in how they need and receive motivation.  In the case of motivational DNA, DNA stands for Desires, Needs, and Achievements.

After listening to Tamara Lowe, author of Get Motivated on a Life Today program, I decided to visit her website and take the Motivational DNA test. Tamara and her husband, Peter, conduct sold-out motivational seminars throughout the United States, which frequently have celebrity speakers such as George Foreman, Billy Graham, Former President George W. Bush, and Colin Powell.

Go ahead and do what I did and take the test inside the Kindle book at Get Motivated! on Amazon. 

If you would like to share, I would be interested in hearing everyone’s test results.  I’ll share mine, but only if you share yours in the comments section below.

In Conclusion

I would really encourage everyone to visit Tamara’s website and take the test inside the book.  (Kindle books can be purchased fairly cheap.  I do it all the time.)  It can aid you by keeping you on track as you discover your right livelihood and true calling.  She still does offer some FREE advice on her website.

She now has several books, that I just cannot to dive into!  One of them is even a work from home book: How to Start an Online Business in 24 Hours for Under $100 written with Stephen Kasyanenko.

Here at Powerfully Purposed For Success, we use many other non-traditional forms of career testing.  We get you to start thinking about your interests, dreams, passions, and interests as opposed to skill assessments, work experience, and degrees. 

There are so many ways to discover your amazing journey that is uniquely and authentically yours and yours alone.  The truth will set you free.

Enough said, who wants to share their results below in the comment section below?

  1. Just took it! I’m “The Director” – “strategic thinkers who have the ability to move projects forward. They have an eye for detail and energy for execution. Directors are practical and responsible. They are bottom-line people who like to get to the point.” – So much fun! This is definitely true of me. Now… why aren’t I reaching my potential? Oh yeah, I’m a mom, working during my kiddos’ naptimes and after they go to bed at night LOL – limited time… but… one day I’ll get there! I am doing what I can now – that’s the strategic planner in me. These small, slow steps I’m taking currently will eventually make it easier for me to skyrocket out of here one day when the kids are older and I’ve laid out a good plan until then. I will get there!

    1. Phoebe, glad you got your test results which seem to match you. I always remind my coaching clients (largely small businesses, freelancers, and artist as well as major career changers) that the next step really is that. The next step. If you can’t sign up for a software package, download it, and learn it all at once–then just sign up for it. That is one small step. So many times, I believe that we create our own “World of Overwhelm”. Thanks for sharing.

  2. I got the “Supporter”. It is very accurate this test! I am the one that lends an ear when people are sad or troubled. I make them feel peace and they always enjoy my company.My desire to be a spiritual coach is a great sign o me. Thanks for sharing the test, Leisa!

  3. That test was kind of difficult for me. I felt conflicted by a lot of the choices, like the first question – Am I achievement oriented or supportive and intimate? Both?

    My result was “The Refiner”. The description sounds really accurate so maybe I did pick the right answers. “They have the ability to see the big picture while still focusing on the details […] They are deeply loyal and have a well-defined sense of right and wrong.[…]and expect others to play according to the rules.”

    1. This was a carry-over post for the old website, Charles. Let me do some investigation and update it and post it here. Give me a few, and I will get it done. Thanks for calling that to my attention.

    2. Me again, Charles. I did update the entire article. It looks like she has done a complete web and resource rewrite, but still a lot of good information.
