On a dark and steamy Caribbean night, Brendon Burchard stood
bleeding atop the crumpled hood of his wrecked car. That night he learned about
mortality, discovering that at the end of our lives we will all ask, “Did I
live? Did I love? Did I matter?”
Since that fateful night, Brendon has lived a fully charged
life, and he’s helped millions of people around the globe transform their lives
and feel more alive, engaged, and fulfilled.
Brendon observes that the emotional energy of the world has
flatlined, and he sets out to fix it. People are stressed, restless, and
wanting more out of life. Despite the fact that most people have what they
“need” to be happy, they rarely feel the levels of excitement, engagement, or
satisfaction they deserve. So what’s the solution?
In The Charge,
Brendon argues that the only way to measurably improve the quality of your life
is to learn how to activate the very ten drives that make you most human. These
drives are your desires for more control, competence, congruence, caring,
connection, change, challenge, creative expression, contribution, and
consciousness. These drives shape everything you think, feel, and do in life,
so understanding and mastering them is critical to your success and happiness.
Strategically activating these drives on a consistent basis is the fastest path
to living a fully charged life.
Harnessing our human drives is not easy; if it were, we
wouldn’t see so much restlessness in the world. That’s why Brendon has devised
what he calls the true “activators” of human experience—a series of powerful
yet simple actions you can take to radically increase your levels of energy,
engagement, and fulfillment in all areas of your life.
What Brendon uncovers in The
Charge will surprise and challenge you. It turns out that most of the ways
we seek to meet our human drives are actually counterproductive. We all want
more control, for example, but seeking to have more certainty in our daily
lives or to control other people will actually decrease our levels of control
(and happiness). We have a deep desire for change, too, but we often fail to
make the right kinds of change that would make us feel more alive and in
command of our lives.
In The Charge,
Brendon helps us overcome these mistakes and illuminates the path for
strategically and intelligently activating our ten human drives so that we can
have the one thing we all want: more life in our lives! Brendon Burchard is the
