The Psychology Of Motivation
How many times have you talked to somebody you know who is very successful in their field?
Chances are you would get one of two responses.
First is the stock response of hard work, paying your dues, making the right sacrifices and thinking long term. This is a perfectly and socially acceptable answer and it’s quite common. It really is a way of drawing attention to the person’s hard work, vision and willingness to take risks.
It also evokes images and themes from great American success stories. Obviously, one of the underlying principle of foundational ideas behind American success is that it is build on the foundation of hard work. So far, so good, right?
Here’s the problem. There are tons of people who work hard and unfortunately, most of them don’t achieve the success that your friend, mentor or community leader has managed to achieve. What gives?
On the other end of the equation are people who would tell you that their success is basically luck. Of course they would come up with different terminology. Maybe they would say it’s destiny, faith, random events. They would like you to believe that they work hard, but things just happen at the right time and place with the right people to produce the right results.
What if I told you that both these explanations don’t quite get it?
I’m not doubting these people’s sincerity, but if you want to truly get an understanding of how habitually successful people achieve the results that they get, you have to move from the standard explanation of hard work on one end and random luck on the other.
