Constructive Motivation vs Restrictive Motivation 

Very early in my management career I learned that motivation is an internal matter, and that if motivated with external stimuli motivation will remain cyclical.  Over the years I have found this to be an accurate estimation of  personal motivation.  Let’s look at two types of motivation, constructive and restrictive.  Restrictive motivation can be recognized by threats, coercion, and an attachment of fear;  while constructive motivation empowers, and adds value to a conversation, task, or agenda.  The constructive motivation has a win-win for both parties.  Restrictive motivation will seek to over power your ideals and the ability to find success, creating a win-lose outcome.  It is a good idea to surround yourself with people that will celebrate your successes rather than trying to discredit them; discrediting anyone’s success produces restrictive motivation.  You must define your own success and operate in constructive motivation, it always produces positive results.
