1. People may have all the expertise in the world but, if they don’t have the drive it's unlikely that
they'll achieve their true potential.
4. Motivated people have a positive outlook, they're excited about what they're doing, and they
know that they're investing their time in something that's truly worthwhile. In short, motivated
people enjoy what they are doing and perform well.
Is when external factors encourage you to do what you want. Pay raises, time off, bonus checks,
and the threat of job loss are all extrinsic motivators – some positive, some less so.
is internal. It's about having a personal desire to overcome a challenge, to produce high-quality
work, or to interact with team members you like and trust. Intrinsically motivated people get a
great deal of satisfaction and enjoyment from what they do.
5. People have Many different drivers, with one of them being dominant
The need for Money
A form of motivation that involves rewards, both monetary and nonmonetary is often called incentive
motivation. Many people are driven by the knowledge that they will be rewarded in some manner for
achieving a certain target or goal. Bonuses and promotions are good examples of the type of incentives
that are used for motivation.
The need for Affiliation
Many people are motivated by social factors. This may be a desire to belong and to be accepted by a
specific peer group or a desire to relate to the people in our sphere or in the larger world. We have an
innate need to feel a connection with others. We also have the need for acceptance and affiliation.
The need for Power
The motivation of power can either take the form of a desire for autonomy or other desire to control
others around us. We want to have choices and control over our own lives. We strive for the ability to
direct the manner in which we live now and the way our lives will unfold in the future.
The need for Achievement
Achievement motivation is also commonly referred to as the drive for competency. We are driven to
achieve goals and tackle new challenges. We desire to improve skills and prove our competency both to
others and to ourselves. Generally, this feeling of accomplishment and achievement is intrinsic in nature.
10. Get positive : It's pretty hard to get anything done when we're stuck on thoughts like, "Ugh, life
sucks and it's raining." Thoughts like those make us want to just curl up in our beds until
someone physically drags us out.
You can't do that!
Positive thoughts are the only way you'll even find motivation in the first place. If you find
yourself thinking negative thoughts, just stop. Don't finish it. Divert your attention elsewhere.
This task in front of you? It's doable and you have the abilities to do it. Any other thinking will
keep you from even trying.
Get confident : To get started, count your successes
What do you have going for you?
What have you done in the past that was awesome?
What resources do you have at your disposal?
Think of all the things you've achieved in the past?
For what reason would you not be able to achieve what you want now?! You've done similar
If you think you're incapable, it'll seriously put a damper on the amount of effort you give this
task. Why would you bother doing something you don't think you can do? Exactly. You won't.
11. Get hungry. Even if you really love what you do... you will find a rut. It's human nature.
The hunger for success comes in waves.
One moment you have it. The next moment you're burned out and don't want to participate.
But the most important thing to do is to get started again. Force yourself to start even if
everything inside of you is telling not to do it.
Know setbacks will happen. It's important to go into a behaviour knowing there will be failures
along the way.
Being a perfectionist about yourself will just leave you frustrated and tempted to give up.
There will be times when you fail. You just have to know that you're capable of getting back up
and, better yet, that you will.
Your failures or setbacks have nothing to do with you and everything to do with being human.
Sometimes they'll happen because of you (not every decision can be stellar), but sometimes
they'll happen because of circumstances that are beyond your control. Going into this with a
level head will benefit you greatly in the end.
12. Getting Into the MINDSET
• Get Positive
• Get Confident
• Get Hungry
• Know Setbacks will happen
14. Focus on positive goals : It's simple to know what we don't want.
It's simple to know what we're afraid of.
Often it's harder to pinpoint what exactly would make us happy and what exactly we're striving for.
To get anything done, we have to start thinking with positive goals, not negative fears.
Instead of "I don't want to be poor," a better goal is "I'd like to save X amount of money each month." See
how the latter is much, much more doable? And less scary!
Keep it small : Having lofty goals is tough.
You take one look at a book that's seven volumes long and you don't want to read it. Instead, break it up.
The rest of the volumes are still there, they're just waiting in the wings for when you're ready to bring
Track your progress : Since the dawn of time, humans have searched for purpose and direction. And this
doesn't just have to do with existentialism -- we seek purpose in our jobs, relationships, and even
If something is unfulfilling, we don't do it.
So whether you're losing weight, working overtime, or studying for college, track what you're doing! This
will give you drive and show you the positive outcomes of your behaviour. It will give you purpose.
15. Do what you enjoy : Most of us have jobs we aren't crazy about, workouts we don't want to do, and a to-
do list that we'd pay other people to get completed.
These things won't go away, so we have to make them as manageable and as enjoyable as possible.
If you don't enjoy it, it may be there forever.
Take breaks : Breaks keep us from getting tired
Breaks help us retain information and make connections;
Focused mode, which we use when we’re doing things like learning something new, writing or working
Diffuse mode ,which is our more relaxed, day dreamy mode when we’re not thinking so hard.
Breaks help us re-evaluate our goals, When you work on a task continuously, it’s easy to lose focus and
get lost in the weeds. In contrast, following a brief intermission, picking up where you left off forces you
to take a few seconds to think globally about what you’re ultimately trying to achieve
Don't be afraid of making mistakes : In order to find the best way of achieving something, we often have
to do things we've never done before.
Mistakes will happen if you're growing and getting better.
18. Developing Momentum
• Focus on positive goals
• Keep it small
• Track your progress
• Do what you enjoy
• Take breaks
• Don't be afraid of making mistakes
20. Keep motivators around you : This one is pretty straightforward: we need reminders to keep ourselves
going. These can be people or things -- whatever might keep you in the right mindset.
It's natural to get off-balance and forget where we want to be -- these external motivators offer focus and
Keep good company : Unfortunately, people can also be demotivating. We have that friend that
desperately wants us to eat another piece of cheesecake. That person is not good company.
To get going on our path to success, everyone needs cheerleaders along the way!
You need to have a few close people in your network that can help you focus and stay driven?
Only compare you to you : The best way to get demotivated and fast is to compare yourself to others.
You'll never be them and they'll never be you, so what's the point?
Though you've heard it a billion times before, it bears repeating: the only person you should compare
yourself to is your previous self.
It's only if you've improved that matters; not how anyone else is doing.
21. Keep learning : As you go, you're likely to get bored, antsy, or lose attention. To avoid all these pitfalls,
Spice it up! It's hard to stay motivated on anything long-term.
But if the goal keeps changing, if your knowledge keeps morphing, it'll be easier; how to do it?
Get Into a Habit of Regular Reading
Attend Conferences and Seminars
Look Into Training Courses at Work
Help others : When you're nearer your goals, odds are you've learned a lot from your work along the way.
Use this knowledge to help others!
This will inturn help you, it helps to work with a set of people grateful to you.
22. Staying on Track
• Keep motivators around you
• Keep good company
• Only compare you to you
• Keep learning
• Help others

Taliking about mistakes, there are two kind of people
Incredibly Talented and successful ( every one is not lucky enough to be an incredibly talented guy, they have to try to figure out a better way to find success in doing so they are likey to make mistakes looks like an idiot but they quickly move on)
Less Talented and successful ( we can search his history, rarely he makes a mistake and success comes easy to them)
