4 Key Motivators

I am a huge fan of breaking things down. I believe the saying goes, “If you can’t put it simply, you don’t know it well enough.” I agree. For several reasons. Mainly, because when something is broken down to simple easy to understand steps or methods it is easier to implement. At the end of the day that is what we are looking for. How we can take what we learn and have it show up in some way, shape or form in our life.

This is essentially what I am covering in this video. I believe we have 4 key components of our personality that make up who we are and how we interact with our world. When we align these aspects of our self we begin to not only feel better about our sense of purpose, but also increase productivity. Drastically.


We could spend years discussing this one word. However, goals are traditionally what we share with the world. What we intend to do, what we set out to accomplish and ultimately what we feel comfortable with revealing to others. This is at the top of the pyramid or the personality. Think of it like what we talk about at parties and social gatherings.


Going one step deeper is perceptions. In this area of the pyramid, we still have a level of comfort with sharing our perceptions however, they play a more vital role because they “prop-up” our goals.


The root of many of our life decisions and destinations. Mastering this area of your life can create massive change in the way you operate on a day-to-day basis. They create an even larger foundation for your perceptions and goals.


This pretty much sums up who we think we are. This is at the root of our motivators. This area of the pyramid is where all those big questions we ask ourselves while looking at the sky. What is the purpose of life? Why are we here? Whoever invented the chicken pot pie is a genius.

Overall, our task is to align these 4 areas to create the basis for self-reliance. When people say they, “feel comfortable” or “motivated”, it usually relates to these areas of the personality being aligned. Food for thought.

Onward and upward!
