maybe your parents,boss,friends,other family members,a coach just whatever have different motivational techniques

which technique serves u best?

the screaming,yelling,degrading sayin u are a worthless piece of shit motivation?

encouragement?

i dont know all the types but which one motivates u? how do u react to certain motivational types?


i am half and half on this

if someone is screamin and yellin at me, most times ill quit and not try anymore, positive encouragement usually works best for me unless it comes to dieting.

if one of my friends tell me ive put on some weight, ill immediately exercise like a maniac and diet.

so lets hear some stories examples etc.

I'm sorta half and half too.  Sometimes, lots of stress and pressure makes me perform.  Other times, it makes me extremely belligerent.

The one thing that always seems to work to motivate me is money, though.   ok

I get ... confused by people being angry with me, because I believe I'm the only one with a right to anger.
It's my best quality.

I become more productive when I'm encouraged, and don't respond to criticism at all.

I like people to tell me what I'm doing right, and shut up and tolerate me when I suck.

If I was in a job where someone yelled at me, I won't bother coming to work the next day. Or the day after.

I never did well when people would try to encourage my by yelling at me. Most of the time it just ended up getting them told to go fuck them selves.

It always worked better if they just talked to me in a positive way .

Motivation is hard to come by in my life, It's a struggle just to get out of bed every morning. People know better than to try and motivate me with harsh words, they're liable to get a good kick in the throat!

Positive encouragement definitely works best for me. I don't have the healthiest self-esteem or much confidence so yelling at me and putting me down does no good. I will just buy into what you say and give up. Encouraging someone is so much better because it builds your confidence.

My best motivation is friendship. Someone I feel really close to and trust. Supports me and makes me smile. That's a feeling that nothing can beat. I am motivated for anything with friendship.

the screaming,yelling,degrading sayin u are a worthless piece of shit motivation?
had that kind of motivation while growing up, it didn't do anything for me except delay my success and bring me to make a lot of wrong decisions in my life.   

What motivates me?  Life.   The things I see, the things I hear, the things I experience.   

Other things?  Art... particularly Van Gogh's art, as I'm reminded that during his lifetime, he sold but one painting, and now his paintings are among the most valuable in the world.   Not to mention he was amazing... ahead of his time, and there's not been one artist since that has been able to duplicate his passion and emotion that exists within each brushstroke.  (My opinion, of course.)
 
Music motivates  me, and I'm motivated by all types of good music... I find a lot of inspiration from listening to classical music, from listening to Guns N' Roses... and when I listen to bon jovi, I'm motivated to vomit.  puke

Even the most  seemingly mundane things can motivate me, because I'll see a line or a shape that I find inspirational, or the way light falls onto something, and it motivates me to try to duplicate it in something that I might be working on.

 The key is to use what you have instead of looking to what you do not have.  Smiley

Motivated to do what? Huh
My band motivates me to play the old six string, just by hearin' them startin' off the rythm and stuff
Nothin' motivates me to work, unless I want to

 smoking Izzy? smoking

My motivation is a few simple things:

I need to be constantly reminded about the task at hand
I like to work without any pressure, without pressure I can achieve a hell of a lot
Listening to music helps me keep on task and helps me work
And most importantly, MONEY!!!!!!
