Alot of factors influence who we are biological nature,society and past experience etc .Motivation is a very important tool so its necessary for everyone to understand what drives them whether its something interior or exterior we all know there is something behind our behavior.
“A lot of people are fear-based, where anxiety sort of drives their lives, and then there are other people who look beyond that and are more moving toward a goal or an achievement,” White said.
Cognitive psychologist Shlomo Breznitz, who spent decades researching the brain and co-authored the book “Maximum Brainpower,” said a chaotic or unpredictable environment can also shape a person’s motivation habits.
“When the subject is an environment that is random and there is nothing that you can do in order to get something or avoid something, these subjects develop what is called ‘learned helplessness,’” Breznitz said. Another motivation killer, Breznitz said, is when you’re used to having everything done for you.
“We have come across this often with those who had parents who were too helpful, so they become very passive and unmotivated,” Breznitz said. “When there is this kind of overprotection in childhood, this can reduce the drive of that person.” How a person is raised and whether they have hope will also factor in to a person’s drive, White said.
“People who are severely abused or neglected…they generally have learned to give up because they feel that since nobody responds, it doesn’t matter what they do,” he said. And don’t underestimate the power of perseverance, White said.
“People want to quit when they fail the first time or simply because they’re afraid of failure,” he said. “Doing something once isn’t going to get you some kind of reward. The Olympics are a great example of this — these young people practice time and time again to succeed.”
Here are some tips to motivate yourself and others:
For yourself: Write down your goal.
“Figure out what you’re trying to accomplish, and ask, ‘What actions can help me get there?’” White said. “And if you’re having a hard time moving on this or fears get in the way, then break it into smaller actions, just starting with the goal.” Read more
