Heart of Consciousness..
Another article i read today is about “Motivation alone can make you successful ”
I dont Believe this ..
I believe that Motivation has got a lot to do about success but this alone cannot define everything i have achieved in life . I tell you why i say this because its a Universal truth that we are talking about here and how can i deny it not being true .
Very often i have arguments with my fiance , who every now and then complains that he cannot work anymore on his new venture because he has lost all motivation and drive to proceed just because a silly problem snapped off all his logic and focus .
To this, my take has always been that you need to shift your thoughts from getting driven by this word “Motivation”. this word now makes me feel uncomfortable it petrifies me that in absence of this everything will crumble . So much for the word, that it becomes just a complete perspective of the whole situation that can no longer happen and everything stagnates . the more he says it the more i get annoyed listening to it.
Why is motivation so much important for a person to hit success ? I see success originating from need and sheer hard work , where work alone is the major concern that you have to perform because you have to do it, out of need. I consider Motivation is muse, a more pleasurable and rich feel word that can be applied for those who have” Choice” in their hand, the gift of looking for some other task or work by skipping the ones in which they no longer feel interested in.
I think one is able and should be able to Succeed in absence of motivation, because only the Need can help you to work even when you feel pathetic working in some situations under rude bosses or with bad colleagues, you work alone to make ends meet where you have to feed your family, support someone or yourself, in such situations motivation doesn’t really help , because it makes you depressed on finding surroundings as nonadjustable and you cannot quit having no choice.
In such circumstances when you have to work for need you tend to work alone and make things simpler and convenient in the due course of time, you adjust and get used to the situation and keep consistent with your tasks thereby bringing permanence and resilience for the work and work environment .
Having had consistency and resilience you tend to develop more fine skills and smart work abilities that let you cope up in stress and take pressures and still focus on the major tasks that define the path for your success and accomplishment.
Honing such necessary skills and not giving up attitude and in absence of motivation you take up challenges and become a non quitter thus leading ahead with the quality not many have which makes you unique and an achiever in every stream where there’s no option other than to succeed and win it over.
Today I read about “being cooperating or collaborating which one influences success” an article by Danial burrus .
“You cooperate because you have to; you collaborate because you want to”
I agree that people in different situations of life or workplace pick any one of the above and apply it as and when required.
Cooperation in some ways is subjected to want and compliance merely to be part of the team or work one has to perform , whereas Collaboration is a completely positive term where the person is willingly being part of the situation or work even if there is presence or absence of some interest of the individual involved in those.
Success majorly depends upon the amount of interaction and commitment of the individuals involved in the task who facilitate group cohesiveness, where they collaborate to achieve a certain goal.
For instance there can be a workplace where a particular assignment is given to two different teams where one team cooperates and another collaborates to complete it.
Cooperation : the team lacks motivation, its more about the willingness of the members involved, social loafing becomes prominent , no clear vision and goal orientation, lack of involvement and devoid of challenges.
Collaboration : its positive in outlook, motivation among members, team spirit, goal oriented, focus on goal and completion of assignment.
Collaboration is a more social and positive term than cooperation where individual love to willingly work for the benefit of others or themselves in a serious manner where the goal is not deprived of motivation or carelessness.
