Types

There are 2 main broad categories of motivation; intrinsic motivation and extrinsic motivation. Intrinsic motivation is motivation that comes from within. It comes from the personal enjoyment and educational achievement that we derive from doing that particular thing. For example for people who love music, their motivation to practice the instrument, attend classes etc is intrinsic motivation. Extrinsic motivation is motivation that comes from things or factors that are outside the individual. For example being motivated to work hard at the office because you are looking for a promotion is a type of extrinsic motivation. Social recognition, money, fame, competition or material achievements are all examples of extrinsic motivation.

1. Self-Enhancement Motivation If you believe the task at hand will increase your character, advent or monetary condition and these self-improvements are vastly desirable to you, you will encounter significant motivation to perform even unpleasant parts of the process necessary to reach the goal. How desirable the end improvements are to you will determine the level of motivation you will encounter. 2. Achievement Motivation It is the drive to pursue and attain goals. An party with achievement motivation desires to realize objectives and development up on the ladder of success. Here, accomplishment is vital for its own shake and not for the rewards that accompany it. It is similar to Kaizen approach of Japanese Management. 3. Internal Motivation On the other hand, there are other less-noticeable types of motivation. It would be a mix to say that such behaviour does not come lacking its own rewards. To be more precise, the end goal is not a noticeable or outdoor thing, but more internal and psychological. The achievement of these goals by itself also correctly seen as a reward is in all-function not noticeable to other personnel. 4. Affiliation Motivation It is a drive to relate to people on a social basis. Personnel with affiliation motivation perform work better when they are complimented for their propitious attitudes and co-surgical procedure. 5. Competence Motivation It is the drive to be excellent at something, allowing the party to perform high quality work. Competence motivated people seek job mastery, take pride in developing and using their problem-solving skills and strive to be creative when confronted with obstacles. They learn from their encounter. 6. Power Motivation It is the drive to influence people and exchange situations. Power motivated people wish to make an depression on their organization and are willing to take risks to do so. 7. Attitude Motivation Attitude motivation is how people reckon and feel. It is their self confidence, their belief in themselves, their attitude to life. It is how they feel about the possibility and how they react to the past.

Y motivation ?
in today's down economy, it's more important than ever to have a motivated workforce. That's because a motivated employee is a productive employee. And a productive employee is a more profitable employee. See how that works? When people aren't motivated, they become less productive, less creative, less of an asset to your company. Now more than ever, we need motivated employees.

1. Motivation helps you start The first step to success is simply to start. Unfortunately, it's often not easy to start. The task may seem too big to handle. The difficulties may seem too many. Or perhaps you're just plain lazy. Whatever it is, you need something to help you start and that is where your motivation comes into play. When you are motivated, you will naturally want to start. Starting doesn't feel difficult because you want it. This way starting will feel effortless and you will be ahead of many people who find it difficult to even start.

2. Motivation helps you move on in difficult times Once you start, your journey begins. But the journey to success is not an easy one. There are difficulties and pitfalls here and there. In fact, there is a good chance that you will fail along the way. Many people will be discouraged when they face failure along the way. They may even give up. Here, again, motivation can help you. Your motivation can help you move on in such difficult times. Your motivation can give you the energy to keep moving.

3. Motivation helps you finish Have you ever been in a situation where you need to do only a few things more but you're reluctant to do them? There are many reasons why that happens. Perhaps it's fear of the unknown. You don't know what waits you next after you complete your current task and that's why you're reluctant to finish. Or perhaps it's fear of success. You may be given more and more difficult responsibility if you succeed that makes you reluctant to finish. Your motivation can help you take those final steps. If you're motivated, you won't let fear of the unknown or fear of success stop you. You will just move ahead and get the things done.
