From Motivation To Well-Being
The concept about motivation is related to human behavior, or in details – to processes that direct human behavior toward attending a certain goal. People are complex creatures. There are a lot of theories explaining human-beings, but we cannot say which of them the right one is. We don’t live in “social vacuum”. Everything that is happening around us put a mark on our being. A need is a pushing force that directs our behavior. According to Maslow there are five needs which he organized in a pyramid starting with the physiological ones – this is well known as Maslow’s need hierarchy. People are established to satisfy first the basic needs and then move to the next step. We have these needs and they are our goals … but we have to do something to achieve them. This that “switches on” our body into action is motivation. It can be a state of mind; influence of other people or of some material benefits… It’s individually for each human-being and that’s way it’s different to classify it. But one is for sure – rising on a higher levels of motivation leads to higher levels of well – being. That includes healthy body and mind, social outlook that enable a person to function effectively and hold a positive world view.
