Hey guys, I made a short video today about motivation CLICK HERE TO SEE IT, I feel I need to explain and pick apart the subject of ‘motivation’ a bit more, so I did some very efficient thinking in motivational theories…
I was thinking if so many people want to become motivated, or need to know how to apply their motivation (eagerness, desperation, energy etc) they need to be able to identify the demands or needs as a source of energy for their motivation.
Have You Ever Been Asked To Draw An Emotion?
This lead me to think how would one describe motivation, or better yet how would we draw it?
Would we describe or draw it to reflect our demands, or needs to satisfy the goals we seek to achieve, or fill the void that is essentially made up of our satisfaction.
Or is it just simply a term we use to describe neediness and emotional satisfaction.
From my research I say motivation is simply made up of three steps, lets cover it in more detail…
People will always need something, fortunately we all have different needs which balances things out, you may have something I value and need while in return I may have something you value and need.
This means we have to try to understand each others needs and who needs what in order to boost productivity in any aspect of our society.
Having a need can be a trigger for a motivational flashpoint, as the need is the pretext to the behavior required to make change.
Whether in a positive or negative manner.
The need can be anything, the motivational flashpoint is what bridges the need with the behavior and governs how the behavior will be based on the flashpoint.
Example: If somebody Needs to learn a particular method of solving a mathematic equation they could either;
- Fall asleep and procrastinate.
- Realize that in order to solve the equation they have to take action (motivate themselves) to think and educate themselves to be able to follow the necessary steps to completion.
- Take action but apply it in the wrong way, using the wrong type of learning methods or rather not think logically, therefore fucking up the equation.
Basically the Need is what triggers the thought process, the motivational flashpoint I talk about is what governs a good foundation for logical behavior.
The behavior is based again on the needs of the person, the behavior is factored by many things, as Maslow’s theory states:
Our behavior and characters determine how motivated we can get and how well we can stick to the good habits we might try to develop or maintain.
The motivational flashpoints help to guide and focus the right type of motivation for the right results.
The biggest motivator of all, but often the hardest to obtain, you have made and achievement, you have seen the proof, you know you can do it.
The satisfaction creates a sense of well-being that in turns gives the confidence and esteem to do more, to go that extra round!
It creates a mental bar to live by and creates powerful emotions like inspiration, happiness and motivation is a product of inspiration after all.
This is why one of my motivational flashpoints is actually envision it or see it, imagine yourself where you want to be… Replicate that feeling of satisfaction to help you condition (in a positive manner) what it will be like when you reach the objective you have set.
