Motivation Needs Constant Renewal


Zig Ziglar, well-known motivational speaker, once said, “Of course motivation is not permanent. But then, neither is bathing; but it is something you should do on a regular basis.”


If you want to grow your shop and become more successful, you need people that are motivated. When the people in a company have a vested interest in the success of the company, the company has a much better chance at reaching its goals. It is said that some people are self-motivated. I say, some people are more easily motivated due to their personality. Everyone can and must be motivated.


The first step, however, is to understand people and how they feel about their own lives; personal and at work. An understanding of the people you work with is crucial if you are to be an effective leader. Leaders are only effective when the people around them do things not because they are told to, but because they want to. The only way to achieve this is if the people around you believe in you and trust you, because you took the time to learn who they are as a person, not just a worker. The more you care about others, the more people will care about you.


Get to know your people. Include them in on what’s going on, good or bad. Find ways to speak about what’s going right and what direction the company is headed. Ask for advice and ideas that they may have. It’s a team effort and every player is a valuable part of the overall success.


Don’t become victim to decay, always find ways to breathe life into your business. Hold a special event, have a barbecue for the team, hold a customer appreciation day, or a car care event, reorganize the shop, remodel the shop. It doesn’t have to be something extravagant, just do things that will continue to keep the fire burning and watch the motivation flourish.
