How to be motivated without a motivator
By Jeff Earlywine
Many professionals spend their entire careers working under managers or supervisors that don’t truly understand the importance of motivation. This lack of understanding results in one of two things: 1) Low performance and productivity of the organization and staff or 2) Self-motivation of the professional, which results in high performance, satisfaction, and productivity. If you are in the low performance category then you know how difficult it is to reach your potential without someone motivating you. What you need to begin doing is motivating yourself.
The definition of motivation used here is: “Instruction and challenges given that assists in reaching goals, dreams and (more importantly) potential.” This definition has been perfected by Weight Watchers: a very successful weight-loss organization. Weight Watchers has discovered that weekly “weigh-in” meetings boost the achievement of their client’s weight loss goals. These meetings also serve to give instruction and accountability to those passionate about losing needed pounds.
Therefore, lets apply a similar approach to your career and personal life, with you being the motivator. In order to motivate yourself you need to discover, design, and develop.
These are the steps that I have seen successful people implement into their lives. I hope they will help you learn to motivate yourself, whether you have a motivator in your life or not.
