Blackstone Audio’s CEO, Josh Stanton states, “We’re excited to be distributing Kevin’s newest audio book set, “MOTIVATION-IN-A-BOX©,” in time for the New Year and National Motivation & Inspiration Day®, which he created after the tragic events of 9-11-01. We have several of Kevin’s other products and loved the idea of “MOTIVATION-IN-A-BOX©” as a compilation of some of his other works in audio!”

January 2nd of every year is National Motivation & Inspiration Day® as passed by The United States Congress after the tragic events of 9-11-01 (H. Res. 308 12/18/01), making Mr. McCrudden the only motivational and leadership speaker in American history to ever have such a day of recognition passed by Congress. The goal of National Motivation & Inspiration Day® is to bring awareness to the powerful role “motivation and inspiration” play in every human endeavor and to bring to light the importance of establishing realistic personal goals every year to allow individuals to reach greater levels of achievement, success and satisfaction.

Mr. McCrudden is referred to as “Mr. Motivation” and “America’s CMO ~ Chief Motivation Officer”, not only because he created National Motivation & Inspiration Day®, but in his book, “Who Are You?”© he introduces the most significant addition to Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs in 60 years. Dr. Abraham Maslow’s brilliant work, referred to as “Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs,” is considered by many as the foundational study on human behavior and motivation or what “motivates” people and is taught in almost every college around the world.

“I continue to be humbled by how my career has grown and that my materials have been sold in over 100 countries around the world,” says McCrudden. “The opportunity to work directly with a company like Blackstone Audio to produce and distribute my newest work, “MOTIVATION-IN-A-BOX©” is so exciting. As one of the largest providers of audiobooks in digital and physical formats, Blackstone Audio will literally have, “MOTIVATION-IN-A-BOX©” available all over the world!", McCrudden concluded.

With this is mind, Mr. McCrudden, the founder of National Motivation & Inspiration Day© urges people, especially young adults to create realistic annual goals to work toward in order to avoid the mentality of “same stuff different day” that so many people have, which he believes leads to a life of underachievement. Without goals that are established and written down, one year leads into another and another without ever “achieving” any established goal.

“MOTIVATION-IN-A-BOX©” includes some of Mr. McCrudden’s other products such as, “A New Year for A New You!”; “What is SUCCESS?”; “Take Action to Make Things Happen!”, as well as a digital (.PDF) copy of his book "Who Are You?" where he introduces the most significant addition to Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs in 60 years. There is also a SUCCESS JOURNAL to track your thoughts and activities in creating new behaviors of “success,” and finally a “2016 SUCCESS Calendar” that can be obtained separately.

Why are "motivation" and "inspiration" so important, you might ask? McCrudden clarifies, “inspiration, is the light, the ignition of a fire inside of us. Something that ignites that energy and passion inside that makes us want to make a difference or do something different. “Motivation,” is that daily energy that you need to find to keep moving forward to achieve those goals and dreams. Living an “inspired life,” is a special thing” adds McCrudden, “it takes away from being self-centered and selfish and enables us to focus on others that have less than we have. Living an “inspired life,” gives us the ability to have empathy for others, which lifts us closer to being “self-actualized” and living a fulfilled life!”

If you follow the challenges facing America since 9-11-01, you will notice the consistency of how people come together in the face of tragedy. Whether it be Hurricane Katrina, Hurricane Sandy, Sandy Hook Elementary or more recently San Bernardino, Americans come together in the face of tragedy and are inspired and motivated to make a difference…to be the very best human beings they can be. Mr. McCrudden’s movement and creation of National Motivation & Inspiration Day® and his book and audio books and now “MOTIVATION-IN-A-BOX©” ask us all to be our best every day and live an inspired life.
