Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
As we move forward in our life journey ,it ie exciting to discover new passions and rediscover passions we once had. We are continuously shaping and creating new visions and goals, doing this we are looking for wonderful new possibilities.To help this we consider applying Goal theory and Vroom's theory. The basic premise of goal theory is that people can form expectations about future and strive to achieve them .This way of thinking plays a key role in the development of this theory and with this we can form expectations about the future.We can motivate ourselves by setting future goals.Locke and Latham suggest that goal affects behavior in 4 ways...
It allow us to focus more closely on our goal. Expectation allow us to bring together the efforts towards goal.Also goals increase our persistence toward achievement
Also goals help us develop and make adjustment in our strategies to achieve them.
So in this way we can incorporate both theories.
Adam's equity theory tells us that that there should we equal behavior regarding pay rise, promotions.When people feel fairly or advantageously treated they are more likely to me motivated and they will acieve their goal
