Breaking the Rules

What gets you self-motivated? If you ever have trouble asserting yourself, take a tip from the latest Marine Corps training: You need to break the rules to be in control.

(Hey, I bet every subversive activist already knows that!)

Want More Motivation? Take This Counterintuitive Lesson from the Marines. (Big Think)

SOURCE: Big Think

Probably few organizations value self-motivation like the US Marine Corps, so when their recruits began showing deficiencies, officers dug into the latest psychologist research. Charles Duhigg explains what they found: “When people feel the subversive instinct, then they feel this need to take control and assert themselves, that’s when they learn how to generate self-motivation.” — Big Think

Breaking the Rules was originally published on Aware & Fair
