Motivation is of two types “motivated from an inner urge or an outside push.”
If you’re working hard because of your own desire for excellence that will actually lead to greater satisfaction, psychological health ,success in life and career.
But if you’re pursuing goals because of pressure from others — parents, teachers, bosses, peers — that’s likely to take you down the path of dissatisfaction and reduced well-being.
So motivating yourselves to learn things that help you in succeeding in career and life should be considered as your most important goal.
As you learn new skills you can use the following guidelines.
Monitor your performance. Note areas in which you excel and areas you need improvement.
Learn Communication skills by reading , listening and watching great speakers.
Realize that failures and mistakes are just one step on the road to success.
Recognize that being aware of the impact that your behavior has on other people is a critical leadership skill and it will influence your success or failure in getting what you want.
Remember that when criticism is difficult to accept, there is probably some truth to it and you should start thinking of correcting the faults
And, finally, learn to give yourself and others credit for improving.
Learning skills takes time and your interest to put some effort.
