MORE IDEAS FROM THE ARTICLE

People who are driven by a need for power love to be in charge, and crave authority even more than monetary gains. They want to make impactful decisions, desiring to be revered and followed.

Lack of job satisfaction and employee engagement can be due to bad management, lack of transparency and overwork. One important reason that is often overlooked is our personal motivations.

There are five different motivations at work: Achievement, power, affiliation, security and adventure.

People with a high need for achievement seek to excel.
Going for high-risk situations, these go-getters are not sitting relaxed even after reaching their objectives, rather going after the next goal.

People with a high need for security look for continuity, consistency, and predictability in their work and remuneration.

They don't switch jobs easily and dislike change, preferring to work in the same position or department.

Adventure

People who need adventure are motivated by risk, change, and uncertainty. They also change jobs and companies often, as they get bored with routine, and usually end up becoming entrepreneurs or freelancers.

IDEAS

Remind yourself regularly why you should be motivated.

  • Many people make their jobs seem worse than they actually are. Avoid this by reminding yourself that every day is a new day. You can change your schedule to add exciting things.
  • If you are satisfied with the work you do and the value you provide, you can still make notes to remind you of the services you offer and how they help others.
Mental Toughness And Small Wins

Mental toughness needs to be worked to grow and develop. If you haven’t pushed yourself in thousands of small ways, you’ll wilt when things get difficult.

Extreme situations test our courage, perseverance, and mental toughness, but so do everyday circumstances. Challenge yourself whenever you can, consistently do what you know you’re supposed to and don’t let your brain’s laziness control you.
