There is an evident correlation between self-motivation, personal goals and achievement. If you know how to motivate yourself, then you hold the key to success and you will either be in, or well on the way to, a thriving and successful career.
There has been much research on what motivates people and it’s an area that many managers and business leaders keenly look into. What most research points towards is establishing the needs of each individual. People work differently, therefore motivators vary from person to person.
There are two types of ‘needs’ that people have. Primary needs, or biological needs, are those which we literally need to survive; food, sleep and water. Secondary needs are where the key to motivation lies as they are psychological and can include the desire for achievement, power and love.
