Abstract: The Military district command 1408/BS or Kodim 1408/BS, is a territorial implementing unit which is directly under the Military Regional Commander VII/Wirabuana (Pangdam VII/Wirabuana). It has the main tasks of carrying out territorial guidance to prepare defense areas on land, maintain security regions, and carry out tasks based on their following functions which are: the main function, the organic function of the military and the organic function of guidance in order to support the main tasks of Kodam VII/Wirabuana. The Adversity Quotient or fighting power, is a measurement which is able to provide more precise predictions of a person's success in facing obstacles in one?s life. Meanwhile, work motivation is something that creates enthusiasm or encouragement to work. This study made use independent variables (IV) which consists of variable 1, motivation, and variable 2, Adversity Quotient or fighting power. The population in this study is 121 people by using item validity testing and correlation between factors which was carried out using the Pearson Product Moment Correlation formula which was contained in the SPSS version 20.0 for Windows program. The research instrument was tested first on members of the Kodim with 35 respondents. Data item analysis carried out on the Adversity Qoutient scale (fighting power) showed the correlation coefficients ranging from 0.200 -0.678 and p <0.05. Thus 14 items were declared null and void, therefore the original scale of 60 items turned into 46 items. From the scale of work motivation, it was obtained the correlation coefficient ranging from 0.205 -0.675 and p <0.05. Thus 14 items were declared null, therefore the scale originally numbered 48 items became 30 items. Based on the results of data collection, it was obtained that the rxy = 0.231 and p = 0.011 where p <0.05. This shows that there was a significant relationship with a positive direction between work motivation and Adversity Quotient or fighting power among members of Kodim 1408/BS Kodam VII/Wirabuana. Thus, the working hypothesis (Ha) states "there is a relationship between work motivation and fighting power of the TNI members of Kodim 1408 BS Kodam VII/Wirabuana".
