  3. 3. What is motivation? • Motivation is a psychological force inside you. • This force makes you do things. • Technically, motivation does the following: • Provides a direction for what you do. • Provides the mental or psychological tension that pushes you to do something and keep doing it. • Provides a sense of meaning – helps define who you are.
  4. 4. Where does motivation come from? The world around you… • Motivation changes based on the state or environment you are in. • Why? We have needs and desires. • Environments are not all the same! Who you are… • However, there are parts of you that also create your motivation. • What parts of you are always “switched on” and help create your motivation?

Who you are… • Changing yourself requires motivation. • Even maintaining all the good things about who you are requires motivation.
  7. 7. How do we organise our motivation? 1. Goals • Goals are images inside you that represent things you want to see happen – sometimes conceived as “targets” or “ends”. • Can be in the world or inside/part of you. • Intrinsic (an end in itself – as you see it) • Extrinsic (a means to another end)

Tips or Principles to boost motivation • Figure out what outcomes you value and are committed to – what good things could happen that really matter: • Inside you (Intrinsic) • Outside you (Extrinsic) • Make them goals: Write down and reflect regularly on these outcomes – how are your progressing? What do you need to change to make better progress? • Consider what you are missing? Do you need something in your life – across all life domains - that is lacking?
