Applause – A Motivation

“A little sound of applause makes a magical difference then a thousand rupee note”.

Motivation is a kind positive push, to a person to proceed further to achieve his wants and desire. In early 80’s and 90’s the term Motivation was not considered on higher terms neither it was used broadly. But as the time changed, people felt and saw the magic of motivation. It became a term which started being highly used in professional as well as personal lives. Motivation is one of those terms which has vast explanation and small meaning. It can be widely explore, reviewed and collected.

Motivation – in a broader sense

Motivation has to be started from the gate of an organisation, from the day one of the new entrant till his/her last day of the service. Motivation can be done at any stage of your service and employment. It does not have any connection to your designation. It is also viewed in two broad manners: self motivation and praise motivation. Self motivation is a motivation in which an employee get aspire from the surrounding and initiatives made or done in a nearby environment. It is one of the best ways to aspire the employee. As if an employee look that his fellow colleague is getting some extra attention or been rewarded in terms of Applause, appreciation letter or money etc by management and others, he automatically feels motivated to work in the same direction in which he could earn more credibility as others are gaining.

Motivation can be done in endless number of ways, but one should always remember that it should be done in right way and in right manner. Oftenly employees get motivated towards the wrong things,

for e.g. as if one employee is taking a leave without information which usually happens and management never bothers to take any action or does not acts on a such behavior, another employee gets motivated to do the same.

Mode of Motivation

As per stated above, motivation can be done by any mode. Like: –

Dreams are motivation – dreams are kind of motivation which can be seen unlimited by any one.

Praise is a motivation – simple words from your boss like VERY GOOD or GREAT WORK is a way of high effective motivation.

Shopping is a motivation – people are motivated to buy new thing while doing shopping.

Love – Love is a motivation which has the greatest impact to achieve the desires for your loved ones.

Success – one gets motivated to achieve the success so he/she makes his /her success a motivation.



Movies – entertainment



Etc are many few of the ways of motivation.

Motivation – an adoption and a Satisfaction

Today, motivation is also a part of self appraisal, self esteem and behavioral posture.

Motivation = behavioral posture

Motivation = Self esteem

Motivation = Self appraisal

So many times we see and ask that why a human or an animal is engaged in certain or specific set of action (Criminals, actors, business, service etc)?

What is there motivation behind that action? Let me explain the answer.

Every human being has there own specific brain set. They like to indulge in what they believe and what they want to believe in. It is generally and commonly viewed that Doctor’s son will be a doctor; Lawyer’s son will be a lawyer. These are the norms which generally others think for others. As for example a son/daughter of a doctor will get the environment of his/her home different from a lawyers home. Parents want that there children should adopt the same profession in which they are involved in. So, the motivation from the environment and surrounding motivates a child to behave, adopt and act accordingly.

Motivation is also major part of self esteem. Self esteem makes you more confident and straight in your communication and thinking. People want to be motivated in order to increase their moral and want to be confident as others are. To boast up they motivate themselves to be confident to increase their self esteem. Same goes with self appraisal.

Self appraisal is a concerned sister of self esteem and again motivation is one of the big ways to achieve the sense of self appraisal.

For e.g. analysis of choosing what u want to wear?

I would like to present an example that will illustrate the utility of the type of motivational analysis illustrated in the article. Most of us enjoy dressing up even without any special occasion. What are favorite dresses? Colors – black, blue, orange etc? Jeans or trousers? Shirts or T-shirts? Long or minimal skirt? etc. When we dress up according to our own desire, we develop a sense of looking beautiful or handsome, which makes us more confident or increases are self esteem which lands us on the seventh level of sky. The feeling of getting noticed by the known and unknowns, getting compliments, being comfortable makes one flawing in the sky. The feeling of getting noticed by others motivates us to do the same again and again as it starts giving us immense pleasure and satisfaction which in turns boasts our confidence and increases our self esteem. Also a motivated, different and positive behavior can be seen in a satisfied person

Motivation – a sense of achievement.

So how can one create a better environment for himself and his employees? What can he do differently to motivate his employees? One very good answer is APPLAUSE. As stated above, applause is one of the best ways to motivate any human being especially if it is done in front of others/fellow colleagues/known ones. As if an employee performs well and his employer just visit his work desk with other high authority, surprisingly and applaud in there, front of others, team members, imagine……, the kind of satisfaction and credibility an employee earns. Such motivation is a push to an employee to achieve/gain his goals and targets towards his organization which is one of the best ways amongst other means of motivation. It is a human nature and it has been proven that human being does not earn for himself, he earns to show others. It is a nature of human being, that he is always hungry of praise; they are never satisfied to what they get, they always want more and more. So, by the feeling of being recognized amongst others eyes is a best way to attain credibility and for that Applause sprinkles the magic.


Before signing off once again I will say that motivation cannot be done only through rewarding an employee by not only giving money but a small sound of applause is more powerful.

To support my article I would like to include few quotations: –

o Watch a sunrise.

o People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing – that is why we recommend it daily.

o Desire creates the power.

o The ones who want to achieve and win championships motivate themselves.

o Inspirations never go in for long engagements; they demand immediate marriage to action.
