According to Theory of Expectation, in order for a person to be deeply committed to his goals and fully motivated, three things must happen.
If you have these three things, you will be like a magnet, attracting to what you really care. You will have confidence in the plan, and you will be able to implement it. You will regularly seek small victories that will produce meaningful results.
Three conditions for achieving huge motivation
1. You must believe that the reward (“why”) associated with achieving a specific goal is important, meaningful, and persuasive.
2. You must believe that you know how to achieve your goal (clear strategies / plans / people).
3. You must believe that you can implement the plans and strategies associated with achieving the goal.
This is the big three you need to have in order to succeed at any level.It is curious that long before the appearance of Theory of Expectation, billionaire H. L. Hunt said: “There are only three conditions for achieving success. First, decide what you want from life. Secondly, determine the price you have to pay to get what you want. And thirdly, and most importantly, be prepared to pay this price. ”
Here's how it works:
1. Clearly define what you want and why.
“The more“ why, ”the easier“ how ”.” - Jim Ron
Your goal or desired result should really be desired. You must really want to achieve this. And you need to have good reasons for this.
Jim Ron once said: "First come the reasons, then the answers." You need a reason to do something. These reasons are your why.
The more reasons you have to achieve something, the more motivated you will be. When these causes become strong, they turn into needs. For example, analyze your life right now.
Most people view their current income as a product of their position or opportunity. In fact, your current income is based on how much you think you need.
If you needed more, you would earn more. If you had to earn 50 thousand dollars in six months, because the situation or your dreams would require it, you would definitely come up with something. Necessity is the mother of inventions.
Your current income level reflects the size of your reasons. Most people do the opposite. They work to make money. When you have a good reason, you earn money so you can work more. The work seems sweet because you have specific and powerful reasons for this.
If you can make your reasons more important, exciting, and meaningful, then you will begin to conceptualize clear goals.
The more important your reasons, the greater your needs. If you have big goals, you will need more resources, a team of helpers, and probably a lot more revenue.
According to a marketing legend, Jay Abraham, there is no connection between being good at something and making money. There are many talented people who do not have enough reasons to take their work and life to a new level.
And although there is a zero connection between being “good” and making money, there is a direct correlation between marketing and making money. The more convincing your reasons for reaching a certain goal become, the more you will be ready to declare yourself to the world and achieve success.
How big are you ready to play?
How deep are your reasons for achieving your vision?
How convincing is the reward?
How ready are you to learn and change?
You cannot be motivated without having a clear vision and reason. But clarifying this vision requires work and patience. You need to analyze and ask yourself difficult questions.
To clarify your vision, you will need to spend a lot of time alone with yourself and disconnect from the noise around you. A deeply convincing “why” should be more than just maintaining past success.
You must have something inside. You can increase the speed and pace of your success with the help of external motivators. However, the driving force must be something very personal to you. What you think is your mission or purpose in life.As soon as you see it on the horizon, it is your duty to start to meet it.
No matter how big your goal is. You need to get as much feedback as possible from people who have done something similar. If someone did exactly what you want, you need to check yourself. Probably you are pursuing someone else's goal. But similarities with others should be expected. And you can use them to determine your own direction.
2. Determine the price you have to pay
"The mind can achieve everything that can comprehend and accept." - Napoleon Hill
When you can grasp the goal and you have deep reasons to reach it, your next step is to believe in the vision.
You will not be able to believe in your vision without a thoughtful and strategic plan. For example, if you have a goal to earn 10 million dollars, but you never received more than $ 50,000 a year, then it does not matter how convincing your reasons are, the whole thing is in faith.
You can talk perfectly. However, deep down you will either lie to yourself or be naive about the reality of your situation.
Being naive is fine.But in order to truly believe that you can achieve more, you need to expand your knowledge. And you need to start to succeed even in performing minor tasks on the way to your goal.
Two to three years is a very powerful period of time in which huge progress can be made in terms of vision. In two or three years you can become a millionaire. As Dean Graziosi once said: “I received 10 million, saying“ Yes ”, and I received 100 million, saying“ No ”.”
The clearer your goals become, the more successful you are finding solutions. One "why" is not enough. To achieve this vision, you need "how" and "who."
If you do not have strategies, people and resources - or ways to get resources - then you will not be motivated and will not achieve your goals.
If you really want to achieve something, then your task is to implement a plan. Robin Sharma said: "The bigger the dream, the more you need a team."
In her incredible book, Scale or Failure, Alison Maslan provides the following plan:
Stage 1 - FINDER: You set the rules and manage your company. In fact, you are a company.You create, sell, sell, do, and are responsible for everything.
Stage 2 - Pioneer: You have from one to several employees. You begin to delegate, but still approve everything related to your company.
Stage 3 - LEADER: Sometimes you will feel like you're in a circus! You start creating small teams (for example, administrator, customs, marketing). At this stage, you get a clear vision. You hold meetings and develop systems and processes. Your distribution is too thin. It is still not clear to people what their role is.
Stage 4 - CELEBRATOR: You begin to recruit or upgrade team leaders to co-create solutions and brainstorm new ideas and opportunities. Your people become as committed to their vision as you are and start asking themselves questions: “How can we please our customers?”, “What innovations can we implement?”, “How can we increase revenue?”.
Stage 5 - SEER: At this stage they do not need you. You have great people who are committed to their vision and work. You move away from meetings and other duties and focus exclusively on the big picture.
It does not matter whether you are an entrepreneur or not. This 5-step plan is very instructive. At each stage you need a new strategy. If you do not have it, you will not be able to move from one stage to another.
Many people present themselves in Stage 5, while they don’t even know how to go from Stage 1 to Stage 2.
Whatever your goal, you need to develop a plan. You need strategies to get where you want. As soon as you rise to a certain level, you will need to redefine your “why” - the reasons why you are doing something. They must become more and more along the way, employing more and more people. Also, the increase in the number of people will be affected by your work.
Without plans and people you cannot be motivated. You cannot achieve big goals. Having "why" is not enough. You need "how" and "who." Or, as Dan Sullivan said, you need “who” to take care of “how.”
3. Be prepared to pay the price.
According to the psychological Theory of Hope, hope reflects your perception of your abilities:
- clearly identify goals;
- develop specific strategies to achieve these goals (i.e., ways of thinking);
- initiate and maintain motivation to implement these strategies.
This theory is very similar to the "Theory of Expectation", which this article is devoted to.
The idea is simple: you need to have a clear goal that matters to you. Then you need clear plans and strategies to achieve this goal. You really have to believe that strategies (and people) will do their job well.
This brings us smoothly to the last point - you have to believe that you can realize everything.
No matter how strong your "why" is. It does not matter if you have the best strategies available. If you do not believe that you can succeed, you sabotage yourself.
You need to believe that you are able to implement the developed plans and strategies. You must believe that you can lead a mission — if it is necessary for what you are aiming for.
You must be fully committed to becoming who you want to be. If you dream big, you have to change. As Albert Einstein said: "The measure of intelligence is the ability to change."
You will need to expand your vision. The biggest reason is that having a broad vision will help you become who you want to be.
Yes, you can grow and grow. You can improve your abilities and skills. You can adapt to difficult circumstances and do things you’ve never done before.
You can master new and uncharted territories.
You can become a confident person who is willing to take a chance to get his way.
You reach that level of confidence by investing in what you believe. You need to understand what is important to you.
You have to take care of your dreams enough to go beyond your petty fears and self-image. You will need to learn to understand leadership and marketing well. You will need to take care of your vision to find out what works and how to spread your message — rather than continue to be a starving artist filled with good ideas about what other people are doing wrong.
You can do it all.
The mind is able to achieve everything that is ready to comprehend and accept. You can be more inventive than children.
You can develop your creative, interesting ideas. You can grow and develop, turning into a beautiful person.
Do you have the following three things?
- A clear goal with good reasons.
- Clear and specific plans that you think will lead you to achieve this goal.
- Belief that you are able to realize these plans
At each stage, you will have to revise this “Big Three”, constantly improving your vision, which will pull you forward. You will become so devoted to your work that “how” will start taking care of itself independently.
This is a great way to live, and you can apply it to all levels of achievement.
You gain confidence through action. You have to move only forward. You must begin to study what you do not know, and get rid of what is holding you back. You need to develop and become better than now.
