  4. Discovering Self-Motivation

  5. A Formula for Motivation V x E = M • V = Values (how important something is to us) • E = Expectation (how confident we are about achieving it) • M = Motivation (how motivated we are when you multiple V and E)

  6. Example of V x E = M • Joe’s goal is to earn an “A” in his English class • Joe want’s to become a published author, so his goal has high value, a 10 • Joe always has done well in writing course, so his expectation of success is also 10 • Joe’s formula: V x E = M 10 x 10 = 100 • Clearly, his motivation is high • Dive Deeper: What if it was a science class? Science is not Joe’s favorite subject.

  9. How to Set a Goal Using DAPPS • To be truly motivating, a goal needs 5 qualities • “DAPPS” is an acronym: • Dated • Achievable • Personal • Positive • Specific

  10. Dated • Motivating goals have specific deadlines • Short term goals are a few months or less • Long term goals are usually more than a year • As your deadline approaches, your motivation typically increases • If you don’t meet your deadline, you have opportunity to review and create a new plan • Without a deadline, you could stretch your pursuit of a goal and may not reach it

  11. Achievable • Motivating goals are challenging but realistic • Example: • Getting ready for a marathon: • Practice one week before by running around the block • Practice one year before with someone who has done it • Set your limit… not too high and not too low • Ask yourself: “Is achieving this goal at least 50% believable to me?” Or “Can this be done?”

  12. Personal • Motivating goals are your goals, not someone else’s • Ask yourself if this goal contribute to your personal desire/dream

  13. Positive • Motivating goals focus your energy on what you dowant rather than on what you don’twant • Translate negative goals into positive goals • Negative: I’m not going to fail this class • Positive: I’m going to earn at least a B in this class • Negative: I will stop being late to classes • Positive: I will arrive early to every class • Negative: I will stop eating junk food • Positive: I will start eating healthy food

  14. Specific • Motivating goals state outcomes in specific, measurable terms • Example • Good: My goal is to do better this semester • Better: I goal is to achieve a 3.5 GPA by Dec. 12, 20XX • Good: My goal is to play harder on the basketball court • Better: My goal is to achieve at least 80% field goal by Oct. 15, 20XX

  15. Review DAPPS Dated: specific deadlines for goals Achievable: realistic goals Personal: goals are your goals, not someone else’s Positive: focus your energy on what you do want rather than what you don’twant Specific: goals state outcomes in specific, measurable terms
