BASICS OF MOTIVATION

  • Different things motivate different people.
  • Recognition of a job well done
  • Increased job satisfaction
    (Job satisfaction does not necessarily mean increase.)
  • Money
  • Status
  • Fear
  • Success
  • What is your view of Success?
  • Motivation begins with yourself!
  • How well do you know yourself?
  • What is the best time for you to work?
  • Check your energy cycle.
  • Take a self-assessment.
  • You are the only one who can motivate you.
  • No one or thing can motivate you if your particular internal motivator is not involved.
  • You must believe in yourself and your capabiliites.
  • Positive self-talk is important in developing your belief in yourself.
  • Outside motivators only work if they are what is important to you.
      Examples:
      1. Recognition only works if that is what is important.
      2. Job Satisfacton works if that is a value to the person.
      3. If you hate your job, it affects everyone around you.
      4. Money only works if that is most important to the person.
      5. Status works if the person is most interested in the title or authority involved.
      6. Fear only works if the fear is worse than not doing what is expected or wanted.
