What Motivates People To Work?

“Only one who devotes himself to a cause with his whole strength and soul can be a true master. For this reason mastery demands all of a person.” – Albert Einstein.

The first is mastery. Mastery demands the devotion of the whole of you; body, mind and soul to a cause, which you have identified as the purpose for your existence.

The identification of one’s life purpose is not possible without having a clear picture of your dream. When you’ve a beautiful dream and a burning desire to live it, you become motivated to work hard to realize it.

Distractions become powerless over you.

Roy T. Bennett encouraged, “

The combination of mastery and purpose may not effectively motivate you to work hard and achieve your life goals.

For instance, it would be difficult to maintain a consistently high level of motivation in an environment where you must work according to standards that contrast with your core beliefs and take away your freedom to be you. Why?

“Because to take away a man’s freedom of choice,” Madeline L’Engle pointed out, “even his freedom to make the wrong choice, is to manipulate him as though he were a puppet and not a person.”

Therefore, freedom is one of the three non-monetary drivers of motivation. The freedom to choose when, what and where works best for you puts you on your highest level of productivity.

The freedom to create and innovate in the absence of constraint of the demand to maintain status quo, is a big motivation to do one’s best.
