If you've ever felt there must be more to the daily grind, something so powerful that even while caught in the struggles of day-to-day life you want to achieve something far bigger, Driven is for you.
By revealing a powerful method for solving business problems, Driven introduces you to a powerful motivation philosophy, by which you experience a pure inspiration or vision, plan out your action with the clarity of sixth sight, hone your concentration and focus, and triumph in bringing about colossal changes in both your life and the lives of others. In this revolutionary guide you'll find
If you're willing to go beyond the ordinary in your life and business, then you're ready for the deeply enhancing concepts and techniques contained in Driven.
- Techniques to transform your motivation into a constant state of being
- Leverage your new awareness into concrete goals and achievements, such as building a Fortune 500 company
- Timeless wisdom to weather and thrive
Have you ever wondered why and how some of us have the unique ability to dream incredible goals? How seemingly ordinary people among us influence and change the lives of millions of people. What drives them to conquer every human limitation, from breaking the sound barrier to landing a man on the moon.
Driven introduces you to Junoon, a powerful Eastern motivational method, by which you experience a pure inspiration or vision, plan out your action with the clarity of sixth sight, hone your concentration and focus, and triumph in bringing about colossal changes in your life and the lives of others.
To live within the state of Junoon is to concentrate passionately on realizing your mission and transcending day-to-day, human motivation to a degree that seems impossible to those around you. Being in this state coalesces and magnifies your ordinary strength of will and determination, and turns you into a person who rises to challenges in ways that others can’t even imagine. You hold nothing back!
What's your Junoon?
Each of us has the potential to achieve greatness. Throughout history, the most successful thinkers, creators, and leaders have distinguished themselves by their ability to access this inner energy and use it to accomplish the impossible. So how do you tap into your potential and make your dream a reality?
Driven introduces you to Junoon—an ancient Arabic/Persian expression referring to a very powerful state of achievement—the essence of entrepreneur Razi Imam's unique motivational philosophy. Imam started from the dusty streets of Kuwait, laboring on container ships at the Kuwaiti port, finding the opportunity to study math and physics on his own, and finally becoming a computer scientist and successful entrepreneur in America.
In Driven, Imam shares the five key elements of his approach, illustrates how they were instrumental in his own business success, and shows how you can make them instrumental in yours. Written as an engaging dialogue flashing through important rites of passage in Imam's success, Driven reveals how to:
What do you want to do? Start a Fortune 500 company? Invent a product or service? Get to the next level in your career? Eradicate hunger? Whether your goal is large or small, Driven gives you the proven tools to find your inspiration and carry it out beyond what you ever thought possible.
- Experience your vision through pure inspiration
- Discover "sixth sight" that will allow you to plan your course of action
- Hone your concentration and focus
- Inspire others with your vision
- Triumph in bringing positive changes to your life and the lives of others

—PETER J. ROMAN, Director of Global Accounts, Eaton Corporation, and Adjunct Professor of Marketing, Carnegie Mellon University's Tepper School of Business
