Work Motivation

If someone offers to pay you whatever salary you are currently receiving at your job with a 15% increase every six months, adding holiday bonus also. And the only thing you have to give in return is to stop working forever… would you accept such an offer?

Seven percent would jump at this idea; two percent would be sitting on the fence with scepticism while the remaining one percent would flat-out decline.

Matter of fact, for majority of us, our work motivation is the wages we are been paid, it’s what motivates you to work, which is not entirely horrible but what these person don’t understand is that, the amount of effort you put in a job, determines how much you would get from it.

You would ask. “How can she even say such a thing? Does she know that the establishment am currently working for isn’t mine? Does she even understand how cruel my boss is? I can work as hard as I like but my boss would never consider that in paying me?”

Probably truth, yes, your boss could be as mean as the devil himself but the most effective way to get what you need from a job is to give it your best. You heard me right, even if that company is not yours.

Let me give you a for instance, you register with a fashion designer, to be tutored on how best to make fabulously extraordinary dresses. And after you are done with the training, your boss employed you with an agreement of a monthly salary.

Now, because you are in the system and you know just how much your boss is making from each dress that you design under her name and how small it is compared to what you are been paid, you beginning to jeopardize the business while giving half-hearted services.

What such an employee doesn’t know is that by doing such, his/her own reputation is been tainted, and by the time his/her own establishment is made, it would be difficult to convince customers that his/her work is any good.

Working under somebody can be tedious and basically, you are working to create someone else’s dream and vision but you can still put your heart in it, create a good work ethics, be patient with clients and persistently put effort into doing a tremendous job.

While you are doing these, you are learning to create your own, and when you finally get yours, you would be excellent at it.

If it’s not more than just the money for you then you might as well be wasting your time, let the drive be the impact that you make and the money be what keeps the lights on.

One day if your efforts are good enough and if God permits it, you would have that money you are working for, you would have those cars and those houses but what would be invaluable to you is that experience you got while you were holding on to an impeccable work ethic.

Remember, if you can give somebody else your best, then you can give yourself something better than the best…

  1. I totally agree with this..you put it all into the right perspective..it’s not all about the money but the experiences too, the beauty in learning and unravelling something everyday.

  2. Little things are little things but faithfulness in little things leads to greater things.
    How your handle other peoples business depends on how you will handle yours.

  3. Working under somebody can be tedious and basically, you are working to create someone else’s dream and vision but you can still put your heart in it, create a good work ethics, be patient with clients and persistently put effort into doing a tremendous job. u are very right.

  4. In our recent job interview at my company, we decided to ask one of the candidate “Can You Work for us for Free?. The guy was surprised and said NO I can’t work for you for free. This automatically disqualified him for the position. We actually wanted to know if he was after Knowledge and Experience or after Money. The truth is that even if someone tells you to work for him for free, he must definitely give you some money at the end of the job.!!!!
