Motivation system is a term that describes one of the management instruments. It consists of purposely chosen motivators that are all connected to each other. These often satisfy the assumptions and the missions of the company or organization and can be achieved by encouraging the employees to certain behaviors and practices.
Motivation is defined as the process that initiates, guides, and maintains goal-oriented behaviors. It causes us to act. Motivation involves the biological, emotional, social, and cognitive forces that activate behavior. In short, the term motivation is frequently used to describe why a person does something.
Components of Motivation
Having a goal is not enough to accomplish something. For instance, if your goal is to lose weight you have to take action to achieve it. You need the ability to persist through obstacles and endurance to keep going in spite of difficulties.
Here are three major components of motivation: activation, persistence, and intensity.
This involves the decision to initiate a behavior, such as going to the gym or starting a new diet.
It is the continued effort toward a goal even though obstacles may exist. An example of persistence would be going to the gym and eating healthy even if it requires discipline to control yourself and not indulge in unhealthy foods. It also requires your time and energy.
This can be seen in the concentration and vigor that goes into pursuing a goal. For example, one person might coast without much effort, while another person will lift weights regularly, run on the treadmill and focus on what the gym coach advised. The first person lacks intensity, while the second pursues his health goals with much greater intensity.
We’ll have to take into consideration that our actions have outcomes ad they affect those we came in contact with. For this reason, whatever motivation system we choose to use, will do one of two things: increase the fire or extinguish the flame. So, choose wisely.
