Motivation

...MOTIVATION Whenever we think about life and its necessities we find that there are too many things which are required to live a successful life. In general terms we say that we need food, clothing, housing, education etc. to live a successful or happy life (Psychology today 2012). To get a successful life a person attempts many things like getting education, getting a better job, marrying and so on. Motivation plays an important role in achieving all these things. We can say that motivation is a force which stimulates the desire to do the things. But the question is from where do we get the motivation? Well, a person can get the motivation from the people around him or from the persons whom he can observe or from the person about whom he knows (Psychology today 2012). There are several theories which have been written to explain motivation. These theories include Instinct theory of motivation, Incentive theory of motivation, drive theory of motivation, arousal theory of motivation and humanistic theory of motivation. Obviously, these theories have their explanations but our concern here is not to discuss the theories (About.com 2012). If I talk about myself and how do I get motivation, I have only one answer and that is my Father. He has motivated me throughout my carrier. I am highly influenced by his qualities and his living standards. Not only his life but also his helpful suggestions have helped me to make my carrier (Angel fire 2012). First I would like to talk......

Quotes

...Quotes! "The greatest thing you'll ever learn, is just to love, and be loved in return!" Moulin Rouge “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always preserves. Love never fails…” 1 Corinthians 13:4-8; 13 “Disturb us, Lord, when we are too well pleased with ourselves, 
when our dreams have come true because we have dreamed too little, 
when we arrive safely because we sailed too close to the shore. Disturb us, Lord, when with the abundance of things we possess, we have lost our thirst for the waters of life; having fallen in love with life, we have ceased to dream of eternity, 
and in our efforts to build a new earth, 
we have allowed our vision of the new heaven to dim. Disturb us, Lord, to dare more boldly, to venture on wider seas, 
where storms will show Your mastery, where losing sight of land, we shall find the stars. 
We ask You to push back the horizon of our hopes; 
and to push us into the future in strength, courage, hope, and love. 
This we ask in the name of our Captain, who is Jesus Christ. Amen" Sir Francis Drake "Worship is my response to what I value most. What I value most is God.  I was made by Him and for Him. He is Awesome beyond Comprehension! I exist for the purpose of reflecting back to God His...

Quote

...1. Quotations (how he engages his young audience + rhetorical devices and message) – do not write the paragraphs – just decide what point you want to make (with that quotation) He gets his audience involved by using the word sexy: ‘’ let me further point out how ubiquitously the word ‘sexy’ is used to describe late-model gadgets’’ he makes this whole thing easier for us to understand, by using words we use and say. Another quote that appeals to us as a young audience is: ‘’It’s all one big endless loop. We lie the mirror and the mirror likes us. To friend a person is merely to include the person in our private hall of flattering mirrors.’’ This is one of the issues the youth have, to look good and be liked. And by this quote he light up this. The message of this essay is that.. 2. Write a funnel introduction a.

Our lives look a lot more interesting when they’re filtered through the sexy Facebook interface. We star in our own movies, we photograph ourselves incessantly, we click the mouse and a machine confirms our sense of sense of mastery.’’ Here he addresses his young self-centred audience.

Motivation

...Question 1: Motivation Table of Contents Introduction 3 What is Motivation 3 Why is understanding motivation important for mangers 4 Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs 4 Expectancy theory 5 Reinforcement theory 6 In relation to employee performance which theory should a Manager adopt 8 Conclusion 10 References 11 Introduction Motivation is a broad topic and is at times not clearly understood and often poorly practiced. There are many major factors that mangers conveniently use to escape majority or all the blame of their organisational problems. One would be that whenever things go wrong some managers tend to point out that the problem(s) have occurred due to lack of motivation from employees (“Employee-motivation strategies,” 1999). Theodore Roosevelt once said, "the best …[manger] is the one who has sense enough to pick good men to do what he wants done, and self-restraint enough to keep from meddling with them while they do it" (“Employee-motivation strategies,” 1999). Essentially the manager's obligation is to develop employee’s skill and harness their capabilities as much as possible for the development of the organisations they belong to (“Employee-motivation strategies,” 1999). The paper aims to provide an understanding in regards to the importance of human motivation. It will outline and discuss three motivational theories and how mangers may apply these theories to improve employee performance (Halepota, 2005). Having knowledge about motivation......

Motivational Quotes

...Motivational Quotes "If you cannot do great things, do small things in a great way." -Napolean Hill Why I like it: Simple words, deep meaning. Sometimes I may feel some goals are too far to reach, then this quote inspires me. Not always can we do great things, but we can do small things that other people will appreciate. Never is a challenging goal easy to accomplish, but we can start from what we can and make the first step. “Small” never means nothing, because thousands of drops of water can make a sea. How it relates to The Truth of Motivation: This quote reminds me that if one goal seems too hard to reach, just do what we can firstly and carry on. Small things can still make difference. In fact, this quote is the inspiration for me to set up my goal-reaching & motivation system. When I can face a challenging task that seems hard to finish, I will divide it into several small goals, and do it step by step. After I reached one goal, I would just give myself a little reward. Thanks to this quote, I developed a method to motivate myself when facing challenging goal. "The tragedy of life doesn't lie in not reaching your goal. The tragedy lies in having no goals to reach." -Benjamin Mays Why I like it: The quote encourages me, even when I’ve failed for several times, I will never be too frustrated, because I know failure is not always a bad thing. The quote warns me, sometimes I may feel confused and don’t know what to do, then I tell myself I can......

Dropped Quotes

...Dropped quotations are those quotations that appear in the middle of your paper without being introduced. In order to transition into your quotation smoothly, avoid dropped quotations in your writing. If you start your sentence without explaining who's speaking, then the effect on the reader can be jarring. You want to eliminate that kind of confusion as much as possible. Here is an example of a dropped quotation, as well as how you might fix it. EXAMPLE OF A DROPPED QUOTATION: Holden gets frustrated and decides to leave. "People are always ruining things for you" (Salinger 88). See how that quotation is simply "dropped" in the middle of the writing there? (There's no introduction to the quoted passage.) Avoid this by introducing the quote--explain who is speaking, what's happening, etc. Below is a way to remedy this: EXAMPLE OF AN INTEGRATED QUOTATION: Holden gets frustrated and decides to leave, claiming that "people are always ruining things for you" (Salinger 88). Another way to eliminate the dropped quotation would be simply to add the words "she says," or "the author claims," etc. Holden gets frustrated and decides to leave. He claims that "people are always ruining things for you" (Salinger 88). Here are some signal words you can use to eliminate dropped quotations: Acknowledges | Comments | Describes | Insists | Responds | Adds | Compares | Disputes | Maintains | Reveals | Admits | Concludes | Emphasizes | Notes | Says | Agrees | Concedes |......

Quote Analysis

...Quote Analysis “She shook each hand reluctantly; touching them was physically distasteful to her. But she made the effort to overcome this feeling so contrary to Christian charity and, in the spirit of mortification, forced herself to kiss the children who accompanied their mothers; they were all fat and pink, overfed and with dirty faces, like little pigs.” p. 245(59 words) The narrator of this quote is the Viscountess and it shows the hypocrisy of upper class that is seen throughout Suite Francaise. The Viscountess just convinced the wives of farmers who had extra food hidden in their houses while she herself refused to give or even sell any of their wealth of food with anyone. The Viscount, himself, was made the mayor of the town and had as such had a surplus of supplies. Just before the Viscountess talked to the ladies, “The viscountess said with sigh, remembering that she spent 850 francs on the shoes she was wearing (fortunately, the viscount was the local mayor and she had coupons for shoes whenever she pleased),”(p.g.241) revealing the ease of access to supplies. The viscount was actually attempting to rally the town together and create a community where everyone assisted everyone else except for his family which held on to everything they had. Another issues discussed in this quote is the attitude of the upper class of France to people of lower class. The Viscountess calls the children “fat and pink, overfed and with dirty faces, like little pigs.”......
