Why is it so important to be self motivated? Because, all the great thinkers throughout history have believed the same thing, that if you are self motivated you are much more likely to realise your full potential.
And it’s true whichever aspect of your life you think about, be it career, relationships, interests, finances, health or even wellbeing. However, since we spend so much of our lives working, if we are self motivated in our careers, then very often the rest falls into place.
So there’s the rub, if we are not naturally self motivated at work, how do we develop this as a habit? Above all else the foundations need to be in place: all three of the following elements must be present.
1. You must be doing interesting work in a career that inspires you.
2. The work needs to have a level of challenge that suits your personality style.
3. Your working environment and it’s culture need to be compatible with your drivers and values.
It’s all part of your ongoing career management: get all three elements right and self motivation will rarely be a problem: you’ll thrive, be happy at work and feel both enthusiastic and fulfilled. #proteuscareermanagement #selfmotivation #workingenvironment
