Individuals or groups are motivated or influenced to act or alter through both non-conscious and conscious motives.
At times a lot of people presume motivation comes in the form of a silver bullet, or a blue / red pill that is all of a sudden going to make them more inspired. Similar to lots of things in life, there is seldom a quick fix, sudden motivator, or anything similar to that. However, inspiration can come as an ‘ah -ha’ moment or can be found in the kind of a brand-new way of envisaging something differently to move you into action.
Motivation is derived from the Latin phrase moveo; suggesting the verb to move, agitate, provoke, or motivate. Hence, the 1st part of Motivation comes from the Latin– ‘to move’ and the second element, in its most literal form means ‘action’. So the word motivation actually represents– To agitate or provoke into action.
As an example, if you wish to be motivated into losing weight, the motivation can often originate from being presented with a new point of view. You may see yourself in the mirror as looking a bit overweight or may identify you are having breathing or skin problems, or someone has made a rude remark about you.
Whatever the factor, we are all encouraged in different ways. This motivation likewise comes from various locations too. A number of people’s motivations can be intrinsic, implying that it is found internally. This could be a frame of mind, belief or worth that motivates us into action. Similarly, motivation can come from an extrinsic source and be the outcome of external forces.
Some people wait and wait to try and find the best inspiration to make things occur but usually, inspiration originates from a much deeper place. A location within. However, there is likewise the other alternative when something influences a lot of people enough to take action and this is the magic pill (if you like) that provides the inspiration they need. And therein lies the catch– they do not know what the magic tablet is to encourage them, so they don’t understand what it is or where to discover it until it emerges.
As a motivational speaker myself, when I deliver my workshops or masterclasses, I’m frequently approached to inspire others. It seems that other people are trying to find someone else to deliver the motivation to them and another person has the tricks to make it take place. Perhaps, this is maybe why ‘motivational speaker’ is such a popular search term rather than ‘ motivating speaker’ ‘sales speaker’ ‘keynote speaker’ or ‘leadership speaker’. Postponing the obligation of inspiration and handing it to another person, permits them to kick back and if they aren’t encouraged– you can point the finger elsewhere. Their self-talk could be “Well I wasn’t truly encouraged by that” and as a result, very little alters.
The other risk of passing the buck to another person is that you become reliant on that kind of inspiration. If you employ Duncan Stevens as an inspirational speaker for your conference, sales-kick off, yearly conference or corporate event once a year, you can end up falling into the trap of just being inspired once a year. If your motivation increase originates from an external source there is less sustainability in it unless you employ them to come and provide more routine workshops, keynotes, or masterclasses.
So, whilst many customers do not employ Duncan to come in weekly to keep their groups and leaders encouraged and similarly many a lot of people can’t afford to pay a individual trainer or nutritional expert or life coach weekly, motivation needs to come from within. Among the most powerful ways to stay motivated or develop a culture of inspiration is to nurture it from within. This can be called self-motivation. Equally so, we need to be able to distance our motivation levels from concrete objects around us. Self-talk can be very harmful to our inspiration levels. If you find yourself stating “Well there is no healthy food for sale here, I may also just buy some chips” or “I can’t get in touch with any of my customers as I don’t have my phone to hand” then these are reasons not to do things.
Inspiration then comes down to a way to range yourself from these things and even reframe them. Even better would be to prepare for these potential concerns and take a healthy lunch with you or connect with clients through email as alternatives.
I think motivation can be produced internally. You understand what inspires you. You could be driven by money, food, an alcoholic drink, winning at something or more. Taking advantage of those drivers that currently exist within you can be extremely motivating. Jeopardizing these can be an effective motorist. Duncan Stevens is a professional motivational speaker and influence and persuasion authority. He explains among the 6 concepts of persuasion as being scarcity. A lot of people say yes to things that are rare, scarce, or dwindling in availability. If you use that very same influence mindset to yourself and don’t enable yourself to enjoy one of your pleasures or enjoyments in life, then this can be an extremely potent type of motivation or self-motivation.
