The power of self-motivation is something that all career-focused individuals aim to master in order to propel themselves further up the career ladder.
Scott Geller, a distinguished Professor and Director of the Center for Applied Behavior Systems in the Department of Psychology, talks about the psychology of self-motivation in his popular TedTalk. He encourages everyone to be success seekers and the key to seeking success, he believes, is self-motivation.
During his talk, Geller discusses how we can inspire ourselves and others to get motivated. He states that motivation comes from a feeling of being empowered. To discover whether you feel empowered you can ask yourself the following 3 questions:
1. Can I do it?
2. Will it work?
3. Is it worth it?
If the answer to all of the above is ‘yes’, then you are definitely on the right track!
