How To Motivate Others And Yourself

  1. 1. How To Motivate Yourself (And Others)How To Motivate Yourself (And Others)Even If You’re Feeling The Lowest OfLows… By Welly Mulia Page 1
  2. 2. How To Motivate Yourself (And Others)There are 2 primary ways on how to motivate others, namely via pain and reward.Pain means if you do NOT get the job done, or if you do NOT achieve the target, you’re going toget punished.Reward means if you get the job done, or if you achieve the target, then you’re going to berewarded with some kind of prize.Which do you think is a more powerful force in motivating people to get the job done (or inother words get them to achieve their targets)?The answer is PAIN, although there are some people who are going to be more motivated atthe thought of receiving some kind of reward. Most people, however, FEAR pain more thanthey like receiving reward.Let’s talk about reward.In general, humans can be divided into 3 categories:1. People who MAKE things happen2. People who WATCH things happen3. People who SAY “what happened?”Imagine you’re the sales manager for a large corporation. Sales have been slow for the last fewmonths, and you want to motivate your sales team so that they can sell more products.You say to them:“Okay guys, sales have been slumping for the past few months and management is veryunhappy about it. We need to drastically increase our performance by closing more sales and todo that they have come up with a very attractive compensation package.If you can make 30 sales a month (that’s just 1 sale/day), then the company is going to give youan ADDITIONAL commission of $20/sale – that’s EXTRA money on top of what you’re currentlyalready getting for each sale.” Page 2
  3. 3. How To Motivate Yourself (And Others)For the first category (people who MAKE things happen)They are optimistic and INTITIALLY they’re going to be excited about this extra commission andwill probably go all out to make sure that they get the biggest commission possible.I say initially because most of the time people can’t endure temporary setbacks and they expectto see instant results.Even for this first category of people, who are deemed as possessing the best attitudecompared to the other 2 categories of people, their perseverance and will is NOT strong enoughand they’ll typically give up before achieving any results.Only a very small minority of people can handle failures and setbacks well, and these are thepeople who will eventually achieve success.For the second category of people (people who WATCH things happen)They are FAR LESS optimistic as the first category. They are a LITTLE bit excited about the possibility ofearning extra commissions, but not as excited as the first category of people.They’re afraid that if they try to go all out they will fail, and/or they’re afraid that the companywill not keep up its promise of giving extra commissions. They do NOT want to be the first oneto go all out.They must see and witness OTHER PEOPLE going all out, succeed, and receive the extracommissions first before they want to go all out themselves.Their thinking is along the lines of:“Rather than wasting my time on something that may not be achievable, let’s just wait if otherpeople can achieve it. Even if they can achieve it, the company may not keep its promise byhonoring the extra commissions. If someone can actually do it and get paid the extra money,then I’ll go all out. But until then, let’s just wait and see.”For the third category of people (people who SAY “what happened”)These people are oblivious to what’s happening around them. They don’t pay attention towhat’s going on and they don’t really care. Page 3
  4. 4. How To Motivate Yourself (And Others)Only when GOOD things start to happen to their co-workers (getting the extra commissions inthis case) do they start to ask “what happened”?Let’s talk about PAIN.Earlier I said that pain is a greater motivator than reward when you want to ask somebody todo something that he doesn’t want to do.In the extra commission’s example, reward (the extra commissions) was used to motivateemployees to work harder to increase sales.If, instead of using a reward, you use PAIN to motivate them by saying:“Okay guys, sales have been slumping for the past few months and management is veryunhappy about it. We need to drastically increase our performance by closing more sales and todo that they have come up with a punishment system.If you can’t make 30 sales a month (that’s just 1 sale/day), then the company has no choice butto fire you immediately.”Now, how do you think your sales team will react?Yup, they’re going to be both angry and scared at the same time. Angry with the company forsetting such strict measures. Scared because they’re afraid that if they can’t achieve 30sales/month, they’re going to lose their jobs.(…this means no income - who is going to feed the family? Who is going to support them?)In this case, all three categories of people – those who MAKE things happen, those who SEEthings happen, and those who SAY “what happened” are going to be WORKING THEIR a** off!This I can guarantee!BUT…A better and greater motivator would be to use PAIN and REWARD together, like this:“Okay guys, sales have been slumping for the past few months and management is veryunhappy about it. We need to drastically increase our performance by closing more sales and todo that they have come up with a punishment system.If you can make 30 sales a month (that’s just 1 sale/day), then the company is going to give youan ADDITIONAL commission of $20/sale – that’s EXTRA money on top of what you’re currentlyalready getting for each sale.

  5. 5. How To Motivate Yourself (And Others)However, if you can’t make 30 sales a month, then the company has no choice but to fire youimmediately.”Used together, PAIN and REWARD becomes a LETHAL combination to “force” someone to dosomething that he or she doesn’t like.How can you use this in your internet business?Set a pain and reward system in your Internet business. If you succeed inachieving your goal, give yourself a reward. If not, use SEVERE pain topunish yourself SEVERELY.Example:BOLDY tell your close friends and family members (especially those who have been ridiculingyou that you should stop dreaming of making money online) that you’re going to achieve Xamount of income from your Internet business.If you succeed, of course you’ll be happy with all the extra income you’ve gotten – this is theREWARD.If you fail, then you’ll be very embarrassed (especially with those who have been ridiculing youall this time) – this is the PAIN.For support, go to:http://www.GetProfitsFast.com/supportFor Beginners----------------------------------------------How to replace your job with an internet business -> Click hereFor More Advanced Marketers----------------------------------------------Exact system on how to build a 20k/month business -> Click here Page 5
