Leadership Styles And Qualities
One of the most powerful techniques that marketing and advertisement people use for motivation and to excite people about their products and services, are two words: possibility and hope. Imagine the possibility of earning $20,000. Imagine the possibility of realizing the craziest dream that you've ever had. Hope is what drives people forward – hope of finding the perfect partner, hope of winning the lottery and hope of living your dream.
Similarly, stretch goals are goals that at the time you set them, may seem impossible to reach by means of current abilities and skills. But the thought of reaching them gives you an adrenalin rush and a sense of emotional drive. Most of us tend to set incremental or puny goals. Incremental goals are goals that are slightly higher or bigger that what you currently have. For example, we will use your salary range as a good indication. You set yourself the target of achieving an additional 10% on your salary. ls that enough to excite you? Will that give you the emotional drive to jump into action? Hardly.
