Morning Thought – Day 4: What motivates you?
Motivation comes from within and it’s important to understand how we’re motivated, so that our future job can be aligned to it. Some types of motivation may include: incentive, fear, achievement, growth, power, or social. If you are motivated by incentives, a sales position may be a good fit. If you’re motivated by power (leadership), leading a team may be the right position. If you’re motivated by fear, look at what type of fear – fear of failure, fear of success, managerial pressure… what is it? Understanding your motivation will give you greater awareness.
I am motivated by achievement and fear; for fear, I think of all the things that can go wrong, mitigate those risks, and succeed because of the back up plans.
