“We’re not logical; we’re emotional, motivated by pride and vanity.” -Dale Carnegie

Ouch.  That hits pretty close to home to home, doesn’t it.

We’d like to think we’re logical in our choice of a job, a mate, a home, a car, a haircut, our hobbies, but the truth is we’re all motivated by what Carnegie calls “pride and vanity.”

And the truth is, although his words are a little harsh, he’s right.

In this JumpStart discover,

* What drives everything you (and others do)

* Why this is a good (and noble) thing

* How to appeal to your need for status to improve your life

Let’s turn that “pride and vanity” into success and collaboration…
