The Motivation Manifesto Summary

About The Motivation Manifesto Book

"The Motivation Manifesto is a poetic and powerful call to reclaim our lives and find our own personal freedom. It’s a triumphant work that transcends the title, lifting the reader from mere motivation into a soaringly purposeful and meaningful life. I love this book." —Paulo Coelho

The Motivation Manifesto is a pulsing, articulate, ferocious call to claim our personal power. World-renowned high performance trainer Brendon Burchard reveals that the main motive of humankind is the pursuit of greater Personal Freedom. We desire the grand liberties of choice—time freedom, emotional freedom, social freedom, financial freedom, spiritual freedom. Only two enemies stand in our way: an external enemy, defined as the social oppression of who we are by the mediocre masses, and an internal enemy, a sort of self-oppression caused by our own doubt and fear.

The march to Personal Freedom, Burchard argues, can be won only by declaring our intent and independence, stepping into our personal power, and battling through self-doubt and the distractions of the day until full victory is won. Recalling the revolutionist voices of the past that chose freedom over tyranny, Burchard—at times poetic yet always fierce—motivates us to free ourselves from fear and take back our lives once and for all.

Self help books are usually trash. This author however shows tremendous mastery over words. The ideas are just 10% of the book and if you remotely like them pick up the book and marvel at all the fancy expression Brendon came up with.

Personal Freedom

Personal Freedom

Personal Freedom means liberty from the restrictions of social oppression & the tragic self-oppression that is fear. Freed, we have the ability to express who we truly are and pursue what we deeply desire without restrictions set by others.

Ironically, we are loosing our freedom because of abundance. We are being caged by our vices. 


Responsibility for our Freedom

Personal Freedom does not mean the release of responsibility, it also does not necessarily mean the absence of struggle. Some might hope that “freedom” means we can give up or release responsibilities from our lives, but nothing could be further from the truth. The thinking goes, “If I am free, shouldn’t I be free from all responsibilities?”

We must be conscious and responsible for our beliefs and behaviours if we are ever to be free.


Live a greater, more passionate life, fearless and with freedom.


Personal power is directly tied to personal responsibility, which most people avoid.



Motivation Manifesto: Three Key Takeaways

Motivation Manifesto: Three Key Takeaways

  • Kill your fear and replace it with ambition.
  • Immersing yourself in the present moment will make you more joyful than concentrating on the past.
  • An average life is not the way, focus on creating an extraordinary one instead.


Fear Can Kill Dreams

Fear Can Kill Dreams

When it comes to life, we have choices to make every day, choices that require action. However, many of us let fear take over and make those decisions for us. We become worried about what people will think, about failure, or many other factors. 

Then, we get disappointed with our decisions and feel as if it’s too late to change them. In such situations, our freedom feels inhibited and we become frustrated. 

Without personal freedom, we can’t grow or develop as people. Therefore, the only way to live your dream life and gain personal freedom is to take charge of your life and overcome fear.


"If you want to change the fruits, you will first have to change the roots."
