What motivates you?
What gets you out of bed in the morning
and keeps you up at night?
“All human behavior seeks pleasure and avoids pain.”
– Anthony Robbins
Do you think you’re the only one who feels like you? Well, get ready to be amazed because we are going to dive deeply into the psychology of motivation to help you Master the Art of Motivation for both yourself and those around you.
I once heard that motivation was the Most Powerful and Least Expensive cosmetic on the market. It’s your motivation that attracts the people and resources you need to achieve your goal. Most people want to be around someone who is up to something, who is excited, who is driven to accomplish something important.
What motivates ALL Human Behavior?
Actually, we act for one of two reasons, either to avoid pain and or to gain pleasure.
Sex, love, recognition, power, reward, security, comfort, money, leisure, prestige, time off, expensive toys, nurturing relationships and anything that will keep them in their Comfort Zone.
What PAIN do humans avoid?
Anything that could cause physical or mental discomfort, embarrassment, fear, loss and anything that could take them out of their Comfort Zone.
What’s the difference between INSPIRATION and MOTIVATION?
Inspiration is the IGNITER and Motivation is the DRIVER!
Inspiration is what gets you started and can be anything that moves you to act. It could be any stimuli around your environment, a memory, a happening, or anything that would move you to act!
Being on the brink of failure could be a motivator. Motivation keeps you going.
Motivation is what gets you there to show what you have.
Inspiration is the first step and motivation is the second. You may have the motivation, but if you don’t know WHY you’re doing something – you’ll eventually lose your motivation. You may have the inspiration, but if you don’t have enough motivation to keep going – you’ll eventually quit.
Inspiration: Inspiration is the power to stimulate the intellect or emotions through an external source like,
Feeling: Something you emotionally experienced (war, cancer, bankruptcy, divorce, abuse or an accident).
Sight: Something you saw or read (child, person, animal, movie, picture, TV, book, article or a letter).
Hearing: Something someone said (like a speech or a kind word) or by music (song, hymn or marching band).
Motivation: Motivation is the driving force that keeps you going and comes from both intrinsic (within) and extrinsic (external) sources. It provides the will to do what’s necessary and aligns and elevates individual drives into team goals. Motivation requires that you understand the needs and desires of others.
The SECRET to your success is to have a deep and profound dose of inspiration
with a double dose of motivation. Your thoughts, words, and deeds
can both inspire and motivate you and others.
Effective Leaders inspire and motivate their members by providing a clear vision or direction of what’s possible, and motivate their members by believing (expectations), encouraging, recognizing, and supporting them to reach their goals.
