2 Theories about motivation
Motivation is concerned with the factors which cause us to behave in certain ways. When we talk about motivation in our personal and working lives we often come back to ideas about our individual needs and expectations. For example, in this short film clip Fabrice Muamba summarises his insight into what football players find dissatisfying with their job. He talks about footballers' general expectations of everything happening immediately.
What are the most common causes of frustration and job dissatisfaction for footballers?
Because some people are playing in a high division and in a different league, some people are very impatient. In football because we have it now, whereas in the real world you have to work to have it. So people find it very difficult to say oh we have to wait for this. And you’re just kind of thinking well if I was playing I don’t I’d have to wait I would have just had it by now. So being able to just accept the fact that okay let me just wait then it’s going to happen, I’m going to have everything, I’m going to move forward. That’s ... that’s probably the hardest part of it because everything was just was now, now, now, now, whereas now you have to plan ahead and be more wise.
