Title: *How to Increase Your Motivation*

Title: *How to Increase Your Motivation*

Motivation is...

 A process that initiates, guides and maintains action. 
 A reason for taking action or behaving a certain way. 
 An inspiration for accomplishing something. 

It’s important to recognise that motivation changes depending on what you value most 
and the situation. You have the power to change the expectation you put on yourself 
and how you feel about the tasks at hand – in order to increase motivation. Past 
experiences, beliefs and even your culture influence your motivation. There are two 
types of motivation: intrinsic and extrinsic. 

When you have low motivation you feel stuck and sometimes frustrated with what life 
has dealt you. You’re usually not working towards a life you love, but instead might 
complain about the life you have. With low motivation you tend to think your 
weaknesses define who you are, rather than realise that you can grow and learn. 

When you have high motivation you make choices and take action to create what you 
want in life. For instance, if you wanted to work in a certain industry you would seek out 
the resources and gain the knowledge you needed to get a job in that industry. With 
high motivation you tend to have a natural interest in what you do; and if the natural 
interest isn’t there to begin with you create one to keep yourself motivated. You seek out 
ways to build your weaknesses into strengths and are eager to move through setbacks 
and failures – you see these as ideal learning curves. And with high motivation you 
recognise that your actions make positive changes… so keep moving forward.
