I was searching for motivational presentations at TED.com yesterday and I found this interesting presentation by Professor Dan Ariely.

I thought it was quite meaningful and would like to share with you here.

Lets take a moment to listen to what he said at TEDxRiodelaPlata in 2012. I will share with you the secret that motivates us to be Successful in a while.

What makes us feel good about our work?

In Professor Dan Ariely’s presentation, he is telling the corporate world how to address their employees’ motivation.

After listening to his presentation, I thought: “Hey! This could be applied to Online Business owners like me too!”

And I totally agree with Professor Dan Ariely’s reasoning that ones need to derive meaning to his/her work in order to be motivated.

So, now you know. The secret to what motivates you to be successful Online is Meaning.


What is the meaning behind your Online Business?

How much do you value your Online Business?

Your Online Business is like the baby mentioned in the presentation.

Will you value it more and more if you put in your heart and soul to nurture it like from a baby, to a child and eventually grown ups?

You will find that you will not give up easily if you value your Online Business like your own child. You gave birth to it, you’ll nurture it and grow it to be a successful one.

Do you agree?


What have you learn from the presentation?

I hope this post here will provide you something to ponder about the meaning to your Success goals today.

I would love to hear from you what have you learnt and your meaning of wanting to achieve your Success.

You may not have an Online Business to begin with, but meaning to your life and loved one is important too.
