Level of Motivation That a Person Has Depends Greatly on the Personality of that Person..........

The level of motivation that a person has depends greatly

on the personality of that person. If a person has the

personality of a quiet, shy type of person, their

motivation will come from living within that personality.

They are more likely to get motivated from different things

than that of a person who has a loud and bold personality.

If a person has a go-getter personality then their

motivation will be strong and vivacious, with a nothing can

stop them type attitude.

Personality has a big impact on how we are motivated in our

lives. Motivation and Personality are definitely connected.

There are three basic personalities that seem to be

motivation for what we do and who we want to become.

1. The need for power - this personality has a strong

desire or drive to make people act or behave in a way that

they would not otherwise behave.

This type of motivation is usually found in a strong-willed

person. They like to be in charge of situations. The

motivation is more for power and prestige than doing a

great job.

2. Need for achievement - this type of personality has a

strong drive to excel. This person usually strives to

succeed at everything they try.

They avoid really hard tasks as well as really easy tasks.

They like 50/50 odds and are not gamblers. The motivation

is to achieve it on their own with their own skills.

3. Need for affiliation - this type of personality has the

need for strong interpersonal relationships with others.

This person is usually a soft-spoken quiet individual.

This person strives for friendships. The motivation for

this personality is being cooperative rather than being

competitive. They seek mutual understanding.

There are also combinations of one or more of these types

of personalities, as well. They determine what motivates a

person to do the things that they want and need to do.

Whichever personality a person possesses, they need to

start with goal setting to achieve motivation. The first

step is setting goals that are realistic to your specific

needs and wants.

Try not to set these goals too high, nor too low. Either

one of these will cause undesirable results. The goals must

be possible to attain or they are useless to us. This step

is essential to motivation. You can't be motivated if you

do not have goals.

Rewarding yourself for your hard work and effort is another

essential part of learning motivation. There must be

rewards for a job well done. It is what keeps us going.

Motivation and personality do go hand in hand. As you can

see, different people and personalities are motivated by

different drives. Successes are measured by different

motivations and rewards.

Motivation is an essential life skill and you can discover

how to be motivated and stay motivated...

Although some lucky people seem to be born highly

motivated, if you are of at least average intelligence you

can learn how to be motivated. No matter how unmotivated

you have been up to now you can still become a winner.

A winner is simply someone who utilizes their resources and

brain power to their best advantage while maintaining a

positive motivation and attitude. If you have ever wished

to be a winner, look for the motivation and attitude to

help you succeed...

You have to let go of your old personality and ways of

doing things to change, quit procrastinating and get
