I just read a post written by Conrad Allen titled “Who Motivates the Motivator” and I wanted to share my thoughts on this topic. I didn't link to that post because it was to members only. There are certain qualities that are assumed to be in place in order to be labeled a “motivator.” Not everyone has those qualities but that doesn’t limit one’s ability to motivate.
The success of the motivator is directly proportionate to the desire of the agent to be motivated. Motivating is a natural function. If one is a good motivator, there is no effort exerted; there is no forced behavior; and the task of motivating is second nature and effortless. Motivation is the transfer of energy. It's a passion.
The factor that makes a motivator successful is the craving of the agent to learn and become successful at the task being taught. If the agent is not in sync with the program or doesn’t have the intelligence to grasp the facts, motivating will be a futile effort. If the recipient is full of pent up energy and needs to have that energy directed properly, it will be the start of a marriage from heaven.
The more successful the recipients, the more enthused the motivator will be to continue to exercise this task. The fruit of the effort is a great motivation for the motivator; the vision of the soaring eagle is a great motivation for the motivator; and the more agents who follow this path of success will add to producing a motivator who can’t be stopped.
