Whenever I’m asked to present on the topic of motivation, I outline the nature of work and the nature of people and state that people don’t come to work to fail. While this may seem like an odd statement, I have worked with individuals who don’t fully believe this statement. Based on the Douglas McGregor model, they fall under the Theory X mindset which asserts that the average human being dislikes work and will avoid it at any cost. Theory X’ers aren’t upside thinkers. Based on my life experiences, I have reason to trust Theory Y and believe that no one wakes up and says, “Gee, I hope I fail miserably today,” or, “I hope I’m mediocre.” We all want happiness, success and meaning; we all want to excel in life. And yet, we don’t because “something” happens along the way.

Do you easily manage to say “No” to someone who wants a favour from you, while deep inside you feel you want to refuse?

We can only move forward with our dreams and goals if we are focused on the things that will produce them.A Little Hope Can Go a Long Way
