This chapter discusses the theories of motivation and the drive that fuels us in many different ways. Once we need the basic needs of life, such as food,water, and shelter then we can continue to nourish our mind and body with additional resources.According to Maslow, people want to be held in esteem both by themselves and by others.After we have attained the other traits then we try to reach a higher level of accomplishment.Self actualization is the highest desire we as humans desire and strive for.An example of that is my younger brother, who strives to be the best at his level. He has 2 Bachelors and 2 Masters and is working on his PHD. What motivates him is different than what motivates me because we both have different needs and wants.That can also be said about the classroom environment. What are some motivational techniques you use in the classroom or workplace?
