  5. 5. What is motivation? • Motivation is the desire to do things. • It's the crucial element in setting and attaining goals— and research shows you can influence your own levels of motivation and self-control. • It's the difference between waking up before dawn to pound the pavement and lazing around the house all day. • So figure out what you want, power through the pain period, and start being who you want to be. • Get Results • Why Do We Fall video
  6. 6. • What motivates us is often hard to explain and hard to measure. • It is very individual. • Different personality types respond to different motivators. • But, it is proven that people with internal motivation are more successful – Earn more $ • These people try harder at their jobs, and the labour market values internal motivation.
  7. 7. What is Volition? • “Where there’s a will, there’s a way.” - English Proverb • Volition or will or self-control is the process by which a person decides on and commits to a particular course of action. • Volitional processes can be applied consciously or they can be automatized as habits over time. • It can also be called, “Grit”. • See Grit Scale.
