What is Motivation?


Motivational Speakers are more about entertaining you then they are about explaining to you. People need a lot more then just motivation. People need Problem Solving Skills, Time Management Skills, Focus and Discipline, they need Guidance and Support, they need Good Information, people need Intelligence, people need Good Reasons, Good Ideas, and people need to know where they're going. Without these skills motivation is inadequate. And on top of that, just motivating people without good reasons or purpose, is illogical and possibly dangerous. You want to avoid having people being overly consumed by their desires and their ambitions, because they may fail to clearly see or understand the effects that are being caused by their actions. You can't be a motivator unless you are an educator. Motivation needs education and information, other wise it serves no purpose other then just wasting time, energy and money. Acquiring necessary skills and knowledge needs no motivation, it is simply a need. A Need to Learn. Motivation does not guarantee success or that you will get more out of life, or that you will have more control of your life. To follow your dreams and to reach your Goals takes more then motivation or a pep talk. Don't give up, keep learning. There is no self help book that will save you, there's only learning.

Motivational Salience is a cognitive process and a form of attention that motivates, or propels, an individual's behavior towards or away from a particular object, perceived event, or outcome. Motivational salience regulates the intensity of behaviors that facilitate the attainment of a particular goal, the amount of time and energy that an individual is willing to expend to attain a particular goal, and the amount of risk that an individual is willing to accept while working to attain a particular goal.

Aspirations or Ambitions is a will to succeed or a strong drive for success. A cherished desire.

Knowledge is the key to success, just having the will or the desire to succeed is not enough. Learning how to succeed and Knowing how to succeed will always be more productive and be more successful then just wanting to succeed.

The Secret is out, you're an idiot, because there is no secret to Life, except maybe Learning. But you say that learning isn't a secret, but I say that learning may as well be a secret because no one really understands learning enough in order to benefit from learning as much as they should. Learning is to continually progress every year of your life. And if your life or your world is not progressing, then there's a learning deficiency, and you're not getting enough useful knowledge in your diet. To acquire all the valuable knowledge that you need, takes time, skill and commitment. To fully understand yourself and the world around you, takes a lot of deliberate learning. There's no easy breakthroughs, there's no metaphorically tearing down the walls, there's no quick fix, there's no short answers, there's no simple sayings, there's no spontaneous enlightenment. There's only deliberate learning, which takes time, and lots of valuable knowledge and information. So one of your most valuable commitments that you should have in life, is a commitment to learning. No one does it alone. And this website saves you 30,000 hours of human labor, around 9 years. And the knowledge and information that has been collected and organized on this website is the equivalent to another million hours of human labor. But that time saved and potential will never be utilized if the knowledge is never used. We shouldn't take learning for granted. And we shouldn't allow millions of children to spend their childhood without access to a quality education. And she shouldn't allow ourselves to believe that learning is only for children, because it's not. Learning is for Life, and that is no secret, it's a responsibility.

Arbitrariness is the quality of being determined by chance, whim, or impulse, and not by necessity, reason, or principle.

Positive Thinking, Hard Work and Balance.

What is Success?

"You can offer advice. You can show what has worked for others. You can inspire through the demonstration of what people can overcome. But then you must let go of the expectation of change and leave it in the hands of the individual."

"If someone is going down the wrong road, he doesn't need motivation to speed him up. What he needs is education to turn him around." (Jim Rohn

Be aware of your options, choices and logical directions.

Persuasive Speech - Reasoning

There is a calculated life and there is a uncalculated life. To follow your heart, or to live your life, or to live a life of purpose, does not say that you calculated the the effects of your life. If the calculations prove that your actions provided a positive outcome, then your heart was right, and your purpose in life is now scientifically proven to be good. I'm not living a selfish life, I'm giving more then I receive, and my reward is having the freedom to enjoy my life and doing the things that I like doing. "Math is awesome, you can calculate everything. And when we have a machine to do our calculations for us, we can save a lot of time, which means that we will have more time to love, learn, live and prosper."

Everyone says find something that you're passionate about doing, but that is not as simple as it sounds. You should definitely have something to be excited about, like a kid who's excited about going to Disney world. If you don't have that reason to be excited when you wake up every day, then you'll most likely be living a life that's random and meaningless. You need to be actively involved in creation, or providing a service that helps support creation, if not, than you're most likely killing creation, killing life, and that's not what humans are for. Humans are protectors of life. But when people are misinformed, they can easily become killers without even knowing it. And the keyword here is misinformed, and the opposite of misinformed is informed, meaning, having much knowledge or education, fully understanding the world and fully understanding yourself.

Motivation is made up of many things. It is a series of steps. You want to do something, so you want the most effective and efficient way possible for accomplishing your goal, a way that would provide the best results. Being motived is not always enough. Even though being excited and passionate about your goal is important, you also have to be organized and focused. And being organized and focused is a task in itself. If you makes mistakes, just learn from those mistakes and keep progressing towards your goal. Remember this is also a learning journey, and obstacles are part of the journey. They will be challenging, but they will not stop you, because every problem can be solved.

Drive Theory is a theory that attempts to define, analyze, or classify the psychological drives. A drive is an "excitatory state produced by a homeostatic disturbance", an instinctual need that has the power of driving the behaviour of an individual. Drive theory is based on the principle that organisms are born with certain psychological needs and that a negative state of tension is created when these needs are not satisfied. When a need is satisfied, drive is reduced and the organism returns to a state of homeostasis and relaxation. According to the theory, drive tends to increase over time and operates on a feedback control system, much like a thermostat.

Aging is associated with a relative preference for positive over negative information in attention and memory (called the "positivity effect").

I Don't Feel Like It

It doesn't matter what you feel like doing. What matters is, what is the most logical thing to do based on the current information that you have? I don't feel like doing it is not an answer, or a reason, You could say that I'm Physically Tired and I need some Rest, because that's OK. You need Balance and rest, but just saying "I don't feel like it" is just plain bullshit. These are the hours of the day, and these are my responsibilities, and these are my priorities. So what's next? You don't have to feel like doing something in order to do something. I'm not saying to ignore premonition or to ignore your gut, but you should at least know the difference between a gut feeling and a feeling of sadness, laziness or fatigue.  So what's next?  You can't do nothing, there must be something to do. So what's next? Time Management, Planning, Decision Making, Collaboration....there is always something new to learn. But you must engage learning in order to make learning effective, engage, make it so, get it done.

Inspiration Quotes

"Management is doing things right; leadership is doing the right things."  (Peter F. Drucker, American Management Guru)

"Leadership is a failure because you can't be a leader of ignorance. You have to be an educator. Educate yourself and then educate others, then you will be a leader."

"When seeking improvements you're a lot more effective as an educator then you are a dictator."

"Making people believe that you have no power can be powerful, no one ever expects the powerless."

"True leaders don't create followers...they create more leaders." j.sakiya sandifer

"Follow me is a lie, I can lead you, but only when that responsibility of leadership is share with everyone who follows."

A leader is not a position, it's only a point of reference.

Leading people through the gates of hell is not leading, you are only misleading. Good leadership is measured by how well you inform your followers so that they are totally aware that they are also responsible for the success of the desired goals, and that the followers must fully understand the implications of these goals. So one of these responsibilities is making sure that you have a good plan and not just a good leader. You can't be dependent on leadership, it's just illogical for a human to be dependent on anything. So what's more important, Leadership or Education? This is not to say that leadership is not important or that leadership is not effective, because It got us this far. But being dependent on leaders is not sustainable. Leadership is a sign of weakness and ignorance, which are two things you can't have if you plan to survive and thrive as a species. So as a leader, if you are not taking the necessary steps to rid your organization of ignorance and dependency, you are just ignoring the fact that failure and decay are imminent. Then most likely you are not a leader, you are most likely to be a very ignorant criminal and a liar.

"In order to be a Leader you have to be a Teacher, in order to be a Teacher you have to be a Student, in order to be a Student you have to Continually Educate Yourself, in order to Continually Educate Yourself you have to know How to Learn, What to Learn, Where to Learn, When to Learn and know Why you need to Learn?"

If you're a Leader, then you are also a Citizen. If you're a Teacher, then you are also a Student. If you are a Doctor, then you are also a Patient. You can't be who you are if you separate yourself from what you are, so who are you really serving?

Leadership Qualities
Good Communication skills, Empathy, Passion, Humbleness, The ability to quickly assess damage, Transparency, Trustworthiness, Being direct, Asking for feedback, Have a strategic plan for change, Following through.

You are a leader when...

1. You have an open mind and seek out other people's opinions. If people are drawn to you because you are open to others people's opinions.
2. You offer advice and counsel. If you find yourself advising your colleagues, and your friends are asking you to counsel them--if people seem to seek out and value what you say--then your empathy is strong and your perspective has real-world usefulness to those around you. If you often help those around you navigate their rough patches.
3. People count on you. If people rely on you, it follows that they trust you to follow through and deliver on your promises. If you hold yourself accountable and demonstrate the kind of day-in, day-out responsibility that leads others to trust you.
4. You're a good listener and people confide in you. Being able to listen to others, having people speak to you frankly without worrying about who you'll tell or how you might use that knowledge against them, are signs of strong leadership--not to mention of being a nice person. If you understand that listening is more important than speaking, and if people know they can confide in you.
5. Others follow your example. The most powerful form of leadership isn't persuasion or argument or force, but example. Whether times are good or bad, people notice who's present, who's effective, who's working hard without distraction. When that person is you, others naturally follow you--and you are a leader.
6. You insist on excellence. As Aristotle said, we are what we repeatedly do, and therefore excellence is not an act but a habit. When you are in the habit of standing up for excellence and you hold yourself and those around you responsible for quality, you are telling others that you act rather than talk, show rather than say, deliver rather than promise. If you are not making excuses or blaming others but holding up the standard of excellence and quality.
7. You have a positive attitude. Positive, optimistic people make people around them happy. A positive outlook doesn't blind you to problems or issues but allows you to seek out something good in almost every situation and to know that eventually things will be all right. It's the kind of spirit that keeps people motivated and spreads optimism, and it means you are a leader.
8. You treat people with respect. Knowledge may give you power, being smart may give you an advantage, but when you give respect you will always receive respect in return. If you look for the good in everyone you meet and respect them for who they are, it's likely that they hold you in high esteem and that you are a leader.
9. You genuinely care about others. If you spend time supporting, guiding and sharing your knowledge with those around you, giving them the opportunity to achieve success, and if you care about their well-being and do all you can to help them attain their own success.
10. You are confident and passionate. Most people are always watching each other, looking for cues about how to behave. Being confident means moving with assurance, being passionate about what you believe and refusing to let anything get in your way. If you work consistently toward a cause with vision and confidence, you are a leader.

Why do so many ignorant and corrupt people become leaders and politicians? Because they are the easiest to control and to manipulate, especially when you are a rich and powerful person. It's like raising a pet dog. Don't blame it on power. Blame it on ignorance that comes from a low quality education, which all the world has at the moment.

How do you convince someone to have more faith in you? People have faith in only certain people. People have faith in certain leaders, but not other people who could benefit them more. They don't look to you for advice, but they would listen to advice from strangers. The ways that people choose where they get their information from is not even good reasoning. People listen more to the TV then they listen to people with extensive knowledge. People believe that a person with a degree, or a license, or a diploma are more trust worthy and more knowledgeable, this is a false assumption, and a very dangerous one. But the opposite is also true, not listening to a professional can also be dangerous. People need to focus on the information and learn how to decipher information without any biased influences, favoritism or prejudice. Don't Judge the messenger, judge only the message.

Why does Power Corrupt?

Why do people Blindly Submit? (extremism, cults) - Conformity

I wouldn't want to be labeled as a Leader, mostly because that word has been tainted and abused. I would rather have the label of Co-Citizen Manager, a person who is a member of a highly skilled team that keeps all the citizens informed about the state of the country and the state of the world. Co-Citizen Managers would present all the facts of the world based on evidence and research, using videos, text, graphs and charts. so that people can easily understand the information presented. Then the citizens will act accordingly and make the necessary changes that would keep the quality of life at the highest level possible, without waste and abuse, so that it can sustain it-self in a way that it would not steal from future generations ability to survive. We are better off making decisions and choices together. Because we know what happens when a small group of people make decisions and choices behind the backs of their citizens, death and suffering. So if we work together we will rise together, and if we fail, then it will not be from us not trying, it would be fate, and not caused by a small group of individuals pretending that they know better then the collective wisdom of every person an the planet.

You have to be a Teacher, a Leader and a Student all at the same time, if not, then you will never be effective in using any of those skills, or will you be able to understand your full potential.

Teaching Students how to be a Great Teacher and how to be a Great Leader is extremely important since these are the two things this world is extremely short of. Having these two skills can be applied to almost Every Line of Work in our Society. Even if a student chooses another field of study or career, knowing how to be a great teacher, a great leader and a great student will definitely benefit anyone no matter what they choose to be in their life.

You can't be a Follower, you must be a Leader. Lead by Example.

Follow the Leader can sometimes be Deadly

His Holiness Pope Francis: Why the only future worth building includes everyone (video and interactive text - Filmed Apr 2017, 17:52)
Good evening – or, good morning, I am not sure what time it is there. Regardless of the hour, I am thrilled to be participating in your conference. I very much like its title – "The Future You" – because, while looking at tomorrow, it invites us to open a dialogue today, to look at the future through a "you." "The Future You:" the future is made of yous, it is made of encounters, because life flows through our relations with others. Quite a few years of life have strengthened my conviction that each and everyone's existence is deeply tied to that of others: life is not time merely passing by, life is about interactions. As I meet, or lend an ear to those who are sick, to the migrants who face terrible hardships in search of a brighter future, to prison inmates who carry a hell of pain inside their hearts, and to those, many of them young, who cannot find a job, I often find myself wondering: "Why them and not me?" I, myself, was born in a family of migrants; my father, my grandparents, like many other Italians, left for Argentina and met the fate of those who are left with nothing. I could have very well ended up among today's "discarded" people. And that's why I always ask myself, deep in my heart: "Why them and not me?" First and foremost, I would love it if this meeting could help to remind us that we all need each other, none of us is an island, an autonomous and independent "I," separated from the other, and we can only build the future by standing together, including everyone. We don’t think about it often, but everything is connected, and we need to restore our connections to a healthy state. Even the harsh judgment I hold in my heart against my brother or my sister, the open wound that was never cured, the offense that was never forgiven, the rancor that is only going to hurt me, are all instances of a fight that I carry within me, a flare deep in my heart that needs to be extinguished before it goes up in flames, leaving only ashes behind. Many of us, nowadays, seem to believe that a happy future is something impossible to achieve. While such concerns must be taken very seriously, they are not invincible. They can be overcome when we don't lock our door to the outside world. Happiness can only be discovered as a gift of harmony between the whole and each single component. Even science – and you know it better than I do – points to an understanding of reality as a place where every element connects and interacts with everything else. And this brings me to my second message. How wonderful would it be if the growth of scientific and technological innovation would come along with more equality and social inclusion. How wonderful would it be, while we discover faraway planets, to rediscover the needs of the brothers and sisters orbiting around us. How wonderful would it be if solidarity, this beautiful and, at times, inconvenient word, were not simply reduced to social work, and became, instead, the default attitude in political, economic and scientific choices, as well as in the relationships among individuals, peoples and countries. Only by educating people to a true solidarity will we be able to overcome the "culture of waste," which doesn't concern only food and goods but, first and foremost, the people who are cast aside by our techno-economic systems which, without even realizing it, are now putting products at their core, instead of people. Solidarity is a term that many wish to erase from the dictionary. Solidarity, however, is not an automatic mechanism. It cannot be programmed or controlled. It is a free response born from the heart of each and everyone. Yes, a free response! When one realizes that life, even in the middle of so many contradictions, is a gift, that love is the source and the meaning of life, how can they withhold their urge to do good to another fellow being? In order to do good, we need memory, we need courage and we need creativity. And I know that TED gathers many creative minds. Yes, love does require a creative, concrete and ingenious attitude. Good intentions and conventional formulas, so often used to appease our conscience, are not enough. Let us help each other, all together, to remember that the other is not a statistic or a number. The other has a face. The "you" is always a real presence, a person to take care of. There is a parable Jesus told to help us understand the difference between those who'd rather not be bothered and those who take care of the other. I am sure you have heard it before. It is the Parable of the Good Samaritan. When Jesus was asked: "Who is my neighbor?" - namely, "Who should I take care of?" - he told this story, the story of a man who had been assaulted, robbed, beaten and abandoned along a dirt road. Upon seeing him, a priest and a Levite, two very influential people of the time, walked past him without stopping to help. After a while, a Samaritan, a very much despised ethnicity at the time, walked by. Seeing the injured man lying on the ground, he did not ignore him as if he weren't even there. Instead, he felt compassion for this man, which compelled him to act in a very concrete manner. He poured oil and wine on the wounds of the helpless man, brought him to a hostel and paid out of his pocket for him to be assisted. The story of the Good Samaritan is the story of today’s humanity. People's paths are riddled with suffering, as everything is centered around money, and things, instead of people. And often there is this habit, by people who call themselves "respectable," of not taking care of the others, thus leaving behind thousands of human beings, or entire populations, on the side of the road. Fortunately, there are also those who are creating a new world by taking care of the other, even out of their own pockets. Mother Teresa actually said: "One cannot love, unless it is at their own expense." We have so much to do, and we must do it together. But how can we do that with all the evil we breathe every day? Thank God, no system can nullify our desire to open up to the good, to compassion and to our capacity to react against evil, all of which stem from deep within our hearts. Now you might tell me, "Sure, these are beautiful words, but I am not the Good Samaritan, nor Mother Teresa of Calcutta." On the contrary: we are precious, each and every one of us. Each and every one of us is irreplaceable in the eyes of God. Through the darkness of today's conflicts, each and every one of us can become a bright candle, a reminder that light will overcome darkness, and never the other way around. To Christians, the future does have a name, and its name is Hope. Feeling hopeful does not mean to be optimistically naïve and ignore the tragedy humanity is facing. Hope is the virtue of a heart that doesn't lock itself into darkness, that doesn't dwell on the past, does not simply get by in the present, but is able to see a tomorrow. Hope is the door that opens onto the future. Hope is a humble, hidden seed of life that, with time, will develop into a large tree. It is like some invisible yeast that allows the whole dough to grow, that brings flavor to all aspects of life. And it can do so much, because a tiny flicker of light that feeds on hope is enough to shatter the shield of darkness. A single individual is enough for hope to exist, and that individual can be you. And then there will be another "you," and another "you," and it turns into an "us." And so, does hope begin when we have an "us?" No. Hope began with one "you." When there is an "us," there begins a revolution. The third message I would like to share today is, indeed, about revolution: the revolution of tenderness. And what is tenderness? It is the love that comes close and becomes real. It is a movement that starts from our heart and reaches the eyes, the ears and the hands. Tenderness means to use our eyes to see the other, our ears to hear the other, to listen to the children, the poor, those who are afraid of the future. To listen also to the silent cry of our common home, of our sick and polluted earth. Tenderness means to use our hands and our heart to comfort the other, to take care of those in need. Tenderness is the language of the young children, of those who need the other. A child’s love for mom and dad grows through their touch, their gaze, their voice, their tenderness. I like when I hear parents talk to their babies, adapting to the little child, sharing the same level of communication. This is tenderness: being on the same level as the other. God himself descended into Jesus to be on our level. This is the same path the Good Samaritan took. This is the path that Jesus himself took. He lowered himself, he lived his entire human existence practicing the real, concrete language of love. Yes, tenderness is the path of choice for the strongest, most courageous men and women. Tenderness is not weakness; it is fortitude. It is the path of solidarity, the path of humility. Please, allow me to say it loud and clear: the more powerful you are, the more your actions will have an impact on people, the more responsible you are to act humbly. If you don’t, your power will ruin you, and you will ruin the other. There is a saying in Argentina: "Power is like drinking gin on an empty stomach." You feel dizzy, you get drunk, you lose your balance, and you will end up hurting yourself and those around you, if you don’t connect your power with humility and tenderness. Through humility and concrete love, on the other hand, power – the highest, the strongest one – becomes a service, a force for good. The future of humankind isn't exclusively in the hands of politicians, of great leaders, of big companies. Yes, they do hold an enormous responsibility. But the future is, most of all, in the hands of those people who recognize the other as a "you" and themselves as part of an "us." We all need each other. And so, please, think of me as well with tenderness, so that I can fulfill the task I have been given for the good of the other, of each and every one, of all of you, of all of us. Thank you. ~ Pope Francis (elected on 13 March 2013).


Jimmy Carter's Full "Crisis of Confidence" Speech (July 15, 1979, youtube)
"I want to talk to you right now about a fundamental threat to American democracy... I do not refer to the outward strength of America, a nation that is at peace tonight everywhere in the world, with unmatched economic power and military might. The threat is nearly invisible in ordinary ways. It is a crisis of confidence. It is a crisis that strikes at the very heart and soul and spirit of our national will. We can see this crisis in the growing doubt about the meaning of our own lives and in the loss of a unity of purpose for our nation...In a nation that was proud of hard work, strong families, close-knit communities, and our faith in God, too many of us now tend to worship self-indulgence and consumption. Human identity is no longer defined by what one does, but by what one owns. But we've discovered that owning things and consuming things does not satisfy our longing for meaning...."

The Power of Words


Words have the power to inspire and motivate. But words can also be meant to cause harm and to be hurtful. So we must learn to control the power of words, if not, then words will control us. You must learn to know when someone is trying to inspire you or motivate you. And you must also know when someone is trying to hurt you, Manipulate you, or if someone is just being over emotional. Don't let your Emotions keep you from correctly understanding the message. Listening is a skill. You have to accurately process the information in order to give a correct response. "You control the Positive and the Negative, that's where the true power is."

The more Words that you can correctly define will not only increase your power and control, but it will also lessen the power and control that other people will have over you. Vocabulary

In order for a ' Word ' to execute a particular action you must know the Code, or the Definitions of that word that help define its purpose, otherwise it is just a word. Computers work this way and so does the human brain.

You can give words power, and you can also render words powerless. and sometimes it takes more then words.

You can't have thoughts without words. But just because you have words, this doesn't mean that you will have good thoughts. You have to learn how to use words effectively and efficiently. If you do not learn to master language, then the lack of language will master you. Words can give you control, but if you don't have a lot of words or the skill to use words, then you will struggle with yourself and most other people. Words are more then just words, words have power, the power of creation and the power of understanding. The words are here, please don't underestimate their value.

Human Language is the key to Human Intelligence. And every person alive has the ability to be intelligent, to possess unlimited potential and have amazing skills. But they need the key. And that key is a high quality language along with the skills to use language effectively and efficiently.

No not just for some but for everyone.

Lord, we don't need another mountain,
There are mountains and hillsides enough to climb
There are oceans and rivers enough to cross,

What the world needs now is love, sweet love,
No, not just for some but for everyone.

There are cornfields and wheat fields enough to grow
There are sunbeams and moonbeams enough to shine
Oh listen, lord, if you want to know.

Queen - Under Pressure (Official Video) (youtube)

Under Pressure Lyrics
Pressure pushing down on me
Pressing down on you, no man ask for
Under pressure that burns a building down
Splits a family in two
Puts people on streets

It's the terror of knowing
What this world is about
Watching some good friends
Screaming, "Let me out!"
Tomorrow gets me higher
Pressure on people - people on streets

Chippin' around, kick my brains 'round the floor
These are the days - it never rains but it pours
People on streets - people on streets

It's the terror of knowing
What this world is about
Watching some good friends
Screaming, "Let me out!"
Tomorrow gets me higher, higher, higher...
Pressure on people - people on streets

Turned away from it all like a blind man
Sat on a fence but it don't work
Keep coming up with love but it's so slashed and torn
Why, why, why?

Love

Insanity laughs under pressure we're cracking
Can't we give ourselves one more chance?
Why can't we give love that one more chance?
Why can't we give love, give love, give love, give love, give love, give love, give love, give love?..

'Cause love's such an old-fashioned word
And love dares you to care for
The people on the edge of the night
And love dares you to change our way of
Caring about ourselves
This is our last dance
This is our last dance
This is ourselves
Under pressure
Under pressure
Pressure
