To me, this is the most evolved of the three methods of motivating. Not only does it inspire and propel us into action, but it also helps others. This method is the desire to get better and better at something that really matters.
Benefits of Using Making a Difference to Motivate…
1 Are motivated by how we feel when working on projects. The fun is in mastering the challenge of a given problem.
2 Are motivated by experimenting with possibilities and devising solutions.
3 Like to be recognized for our accomplishments instead of requiring costly rewards.
4 Don’t need someone to micromanage us, making sure we reach our goals.
Using fear and the desire to prosper may have their place as methods of motivating employees or ourselves. But making a difference can encourage feel-good productivity because it rewards the soul.
