best choice based on what to pick as the motivator, and whether intrinsic or extrinsic, the role of motivation is to push an individual into amassing more wealth. According to Weber, the changes that have occurred in the past decades have shown that the best way of defining motivation is by embracing the norms and taking greater care to define the norms based on one personal values rather than following different values that contrast to personal opinions (Weber 1976: 161).
The sources of norms or work ethics are based on three main sources. The values embraced work on getting new platforms that will push an individual to gain mastery in anything one works on. The first source is the protestant ethic and the spirit of capitalism, followed by the institutionalised individualism and achievement principle, and last one is the individualism and hyper-differentiation of choice (Lecture slides). These were very important in meeting the core aspects of the society that would later make the process more embodying for the rest of the society. It was important to create new forces that motivate and underpin the noted behaviours in encouraging more people to work on what they believed was the right thing. As Weber notes, the man without a calling does not have any systems in place to make things work, hence spending most of his time in idleness rather than work (1976: 161). Pursuing this call proofs the ascetic virtue of an ethical man.
The problem with working on a singular set of ideals against the embracing of more values makes many believe that a calling has to lead to ones predestination. Weber, however, opines that God wants rational labour and not the mere thought that once saved one is predestined to succeed (1976: 162). The implication is that religion is a big determinant of the issues that people consider as their core values as well as their critical motivation towards achieving their goals.
