discussion three: incentives


Anything can be an incentive or a motivator. For me, an incentive can be getting positive feedback from someone who I respect, such as my boss or my dad. It can make me become a better person and it can make me want to work harder in whatever task I am doing. Growing up, I usually would never get any positive reinforcement from my parents, I grew up with negative reinforcement because that is how I would learn. It made me only learn by getting negative feedback and it is now why I crave positive feedback and reinforcement. Another incentive that I have now is money. Making money is something that is so necessary in our time that it has become something so necessary for survival and it has become such a big incentive.

  1. I agree that positive reinforcement can be a great motivator to do a better job in whatever it is you do.
