Learn the science that motivates you

Vote Now: 
Have you ever thought what motivates you to work better? Some say its success, others say love for money. But what many people do not know is that your emotions are the basis of your motivation of the work you do. It's hard to believe. Isn’t it? Let’s look at some examples. When you are sad no matter what you do you feel like something is wrong even simple things like listening to music can make you grumpy. But when you are happy even the toughest and meanest jobs are not a problem for you. This is because human emotions are the key to motivation in our life.

Of the various conditions present that affects your success rate three points need special care. Those are the things you cannot work without. They are autonomy, mastery and the purpose of the work at hand. Now what are these? Autonomy is your desire to be the master of your own work, means you will do it according to your moods and whims. The second point is mastery. It is your interest to be better in your field of work. Be the master of your own work with a high level of performance. The last point is the purpose of your work. If you think that you are making a difference to the work you are doing however small, you will be motivated to work harder, no matter what others tell you. If these key points are executed well then you will be happy with whatever work you do, big or small.

Your perceptions of your emotions and the motivation when intermingled with your zeal of work provide you the best results in your life. Creative people like thinkers, problem solvers, artists are not motivated by money but by their passion for the work. In fact money is a very trivial thing when you consider your whole life, the various fields of your interest.

So now the basic question how does your brain deal with emotions and make a practical use of them to motivate you in real life? Positive emotions like happiness, joy etc. help you to broaden your mind but negative emotions like sadness, jealousy narrows your chain of thinking and makes your life more tiresome. You can’t be creative, motivated when you have negative emotions in your mind. In fact it will have a negative impact on the work you do and you will be unable to yield your best results.

Now you might ask “how can I enhance my perceptions in order to yield best result?” There are various processes to enhance them. Try exercising. When you exercise endorphins are released into your blood. They make you feel better. As being healthy is the key to succeed in your life. If you are unable to control your emotions, seek professional help and go for counseling sessions. This helps you to boost your own self confidence and motivates you to succeed. Last of all at the end of the day spend some time with your inner self. This will help you to understand your own self in a better way.

The villagers were totally sick of his activities as sometimes he used to loosen up the cattle out of the farm, break water-pots of village women and even burn crackers in front of cattle.

One night the villagers heard a loud noise popping out from the nearby forest. All the villagers thought it to be another prank by Shyamu to scare them. The next day the village head asked Shyamu that why he was making loud noises in the midnight on the streets of village. Shyamu refused that he didn’t do anything. Finally after a couple of arguments he was warned by the villagers for not playing such a prank. But, that night the villagers again heard that weird noise and it became frequent every night.

Then one fine day, Shyamu went to his cousin’s place for few days. And that night they again heard those scary noises. The next day the village head collected a few people and went to Shyamu’s house for taking an action against him. After reaching his place, they found that Shyamu was not in the village since the previous morning. This scared the village head he thought that Shyamu was right it was some ghost which was making these noises. The news spread like fire in the village. The very next day a small boy was found missing from the village. The villagers gathered and went towards the forest to search for the boy. On entering the forest, they found the boy’s clothes. This indeed scared the villagers and they did not try to go further for searching the boy. Now, there was a rumor spread in the village that there is a ghost who lives in the forest, he roams on the streets of the village for hunting kids.

Shyamu felt weird after listening this but, the same night he heard those noises and the very next day another boy was missing from the village. Now, this created a hassle among the villagers. The village head reported this to the police and they started their investigation. At, night two policemen were sent by the local police station in the forest to search for evidence. The next day they didn’t return. This created more fear within the area. This made Shyamu plan out an expedition for knowing the truth. He planned to go into the forest at late night with his cousins. After the clock tucked 12 at night, Shyamu left with his cousins for the forest. The scary noises started and they saw a small beam of light coming through the forest. They followed the direction of beam and crossed the lake. On going further, they saw a hut outside which the two missing boys and the two policemen were tied up. They looked around and saw a tape recorder with speaker. They came to know the secret of noises. Shyamu advanced towards the hut and peeped through the window. He found four men sleeping in the hut. Shyamu locked the door of the hut from outside to avoid their escape, while his cousins untied the policemen and the boys.

They planned to get these dacoits trapped. The policemen hurried at that moment, went back to the village and gathered a huge crowd for trapping the dacoits. As soon as the one of the dacoits woke up he found the door locked from outside. He woke up the other dacoits and they saw the village crowd coming towards them. They picked their guns and shot the lock and broke open the door. Now putting their guns on Shyamu’s head they demanded a safe escape, while all were stunned to see Shyamu in such a risk. The village head warned them to put down their guns else they will attack them but, one of the dacoits fired in the air and the villagers ran away from.

Meanwhile, the policemen were hiding in the nearby bushes. As soon as they turned for collecting their looted money which was placed in the cowshed, the policemen dodged them and took away their guns. Seeing this even Shyamu dodged the dacoit who had placed the gun on his head. The fourth dacoit was shot on his leg by one of the policemen. Meanwhile, the police jeep arrived along with the village head and other members. The police arrested the dacoits and put them in the vans.
