What Motivates You?
"What motivates you?" This is usually an open-ended question that is used to better understand you personality, work ethic and qualification to achieve your goals. By identifying and expanding on your motivations you will be left with a clear expectation of what you have to offer and what your interests and passions are when it comes to your goals. Things like incentives, achievements, and affiliation motivation are a few common examples (but there are many more) of what helps motivate individuals:
Rewarding yourself for reaching certain milestones would be incentive-based motivation. For example, if you get the highest sales rate for the month, you decide to treat yourself to that pair of shoes you have been eyeing for weeks.
Achievement-based motivation is the idea of obtaining credit, recognition of different forms, promotions, or rewards from your work.
This motivation is also known as “social motivation” and stems from the sense of belonging and contributing to the common good. This will drive you to be a better person and lead to more fulfillment.
