Motivation Management is about focus and as a human being we tend to focus on our values ??and beliefs. By changing or influencing values ??and beliefs we change focus and motivate ourselves or others. Values ??are hierarchical, they are what we deem important in terms of other important values, such as happiness is more important than security. Beliefs are what is possible and what is not, they are what we believe to exist and not exist, and this becomes the bases for logic of a person and sense of common sense. We create our reality in terms of our values ??and beliefs filtering information we get from our senses, what we see, hear, touch, smell, and taste.
What you see, hear and touch at any given time is not the actual reality, but deleted, distorted, and generalized information of the reality recreated in your mental mind. From this incomplete reality we filter things out or fabricate things in the bases of our beliefs of how the world should be. The values ??we focus on makes us to ignore more of the incomplete reality that we have filtered out and only see, hear and touch the reality recreated. The sensory acuity, values ??and beliefs are mostly based on experiences and memory of significant events, the world you recreate in your mental mind is unique. This tells us that how we communicate is a miracle but inefficient. Although we have the ability to communicate ideas that is understood by others, for this to happen we have to train the population for many years to see, hear and touch like everyone else. Culture, media, education, beliefs and values, most of these are forced upon us from birth and the irony is that we force it without the knowledge of the purpose.
Common sense and logic is really illogical when it comes down to the core of things. Every single one of us see the incomplete world in our point of view and what we think as what others might be thinking is just a speculation by seeing from others point of view. This becomes really inefficient if you do not know the others values, beliefs and experiences. From this understanding, wanting someone to think like you or expect someone to have as you expect them to is just wishful thinking and ellogical, and what we call common sense is really non-common sense and the only common sense one can have is to know that others do not share your point of view, logic or common sense.
Communication comes down to knowing what the meaning or associations that is labeled when we use language. Most of us use language that assumes we know the meaning or association to the language, however, through right training and education one can hear how people are vague in their descriptions and the worst thing is we do not ask for clarity but instead fill in the gaps with what we have in mind as the meaning or association to the language the other has used. More fulfilling communication may give insight to the others or even your own values ??and beliefs, and could improve your influence on your or others motivation management .
