Emotion Not Money Is What Really Motivate Us to Work Hard

Emotion Not Money Is What Really Motivate Us to Work Hard

We all know that in this crazy world, most of us work for a living. 

Here is something interesting for you to ponder…

Psychologists Teresa Amabile and Steven Kramer interviewed over 600 managers and found a shocking result. 

95% of managers misunderstood what motivates employees. 

They thought what motivates employees was making money, getting raises and bonuses.

 In fact, after analyzing over 12,000 employee diary entries, they discovered that the number one work motivator was emotion, not financial incentive: It’s the feeling of making progress every day toward a meaningful goal

In Fact, Dan Pink found that actually the exact opposite is true:

“The larger the monetary reward, the poorer the performance. – money doesn’t motivate us, at all, instead emotions do.”  ~Dan Pink

They found, in reality, that just 3 very simple things drive nearly each and everyone of us to work hard:

Autonomy: Our desire to direct our own lives. In short: “You probably want to do something interesting, let me get out of your way!”

Mastery: Our urge to get better at stuff.

Purpose: The feeling and intention that we can make a difference in the world.

In our online company and community, we offer these this way:

Autonomy: We know you want something interesting and worthwhile to do. If you have ideas, we want to hear them.

Mastery: You will naturally get better at the things you are interested in.

Purpose: We are making a difference in the world as that is our mission, even more than money!
