Ready to start: motivation


Strong desire, determined by proper motivation, will provide you with a powerful start. It is very important that you understand correctly why you need this program.
Think about what you are going to do the program for. Motivation is the key to success. Do you have to or do you want to do this? Strong desire, determined by proper motivation, will provide you with a powerful start. It is very important that you understand correctly why you need this program. If you think of it as what you are forced to do for the sake of health, it will not have the same effect as if you want to exercise it. Duty never possesses the same driving force as desire.
We always find time for what we want to do. When we are seized by a burning desire for something, we travel an extra kilometer and turn the planet upside down. This feeling is usually a subconscious impulse. You see something and want to have it. Desire arises almost unconsciously, and the stronger it is, the faster you master its subject. However, there are ways to cultivate or form it, even if you initially hesitate or oppose it.
Motivation is the cultivation of desire that will help you overcome all obstacles and succeed. Although the exercises described below seem fairly simple, I have used them many times in working with patients. Perhaps they contain the secret to achieving a goal that now may seem difficult to you, or even completely unattainable.
EXERCISE 1. IMAGINE OTHERS
Close your eyes and imagine your life today. How do you look and feel today? What aspects of your health are you dissatisfied with?
What does it mean for you to look and feel younger? How can this be felt?
What would it mean for people close to you to eliminate your health problems?
What benefits would your social, financial, spiritual, and emotional vigor, energy, and clarity of consciousness bring to you?
Imagine these possibilities. Feel the spark of desire turning into a fire when you begin to feel the possibility of change. Find out your motivation for the diligent implementation of the three-week program. Make sure that you are fully aware of why you are doing this.
EXERCISE 2. START THE MAGAZINE OF CLEANING
To enhance the effect, keep a record of the feelings you experience during the program. I recommend starting this journal with records of your motivation, initial state of health, and then record all the changes that are happening to you. You also probably want to point out the impact on your body of food, which you re-enter into your diet in the phase of completion of the program.
Records do not have to be kept on paper - you can use a computer for this purpose.
Record your submissions from the first exercise. Short comments will be quite enough.
Then make a list of the results you would like to achieve by the end of the program, both physical and spiritual.
This list should include any new habits, especially in food and drink, with which you would like to replace old ones that do not bring you benefits or hinder the realization of your potential. Most people know what that means.
As the program progresses, take notes every day or every few days about your feelings and changes in your well-being. Daily recordings of ongoing events are always helpful. But they are of particular interest in periods of rapid transformation. Information about changes in appearance, body functions, energy level, mood, and general health will be very useful for comparing you in the future when you continue your long journey through a healthy life. In the future, they can serve as a motive for re-running the program and help you decide on the best choice of food and lifestyle for you.
EXERCISE 3. PHOTOGRAPHY
Memory is deceptive, especially visual. Take pictures before and after the program. You will be interested to compare these two pictures. Make sure they are made from the same distance and from the same angle. Choose as simple a background as possible so that nothing distracts your eyes.
EXERCISE 4.
CREATE A SUPPORT SYSTEM
We are social beings and function best when we rely on the support of others. Make sure the main people in your life know what you are up to and contact them for help. Attracting a friend or partner to the joint implementation of the program will not only make this event more interesting, but also increase your chances of success.
Fill out the “Health Checker” form provided in Chapter 1 before and after the program. A detailed explanation of what prompted you to implement the program will help you refresh your memory in the future. Many of us have selective memory and filter out negative memories. This is one of the reasons why we face the same problems again and again. Records of how you looked and felt to yourself before the beginning and after the implementation of the program will be evidence for you that changes for the better occur when efforts are made to it.

  1. Clarification of the problem by direct measurement of motivation
    Thus, it is necessary to obtain data on the current state of tendencies to aggression and inhibition more direct than physiological indicators.

Referred to "average people" (E. Krechmer), these types act as character tendencies commonly used for typological characteristics.

    People are constantly involved in a variety of activities and exercise this or that behavior. Human behavior can be described from different angles.

The study of motivation is an analysis of the causes and factors that initiate and
  6. Conscious and unconscious in motivation
    If you make a rating of the most important tasks that are expected from psychology and psychologists, then one of the top, and possibly the very first line in such a rating will be taken by understanding the causes of human behavior, that is, why in a certain situation he does it that way, not otherwise. To get the key to solving this problem, you need to understand the psychology of motivation. Before as
  7. Reinforcements and motivations
    As a rule, a motive directs behavior to a specific motivator that causes pleasure or alleviates an unpleasant condition: food, drink, sex, etc. In other words, the motivating motivation is affective and is a product of pleasure or displeasure. Once, psychologists believed that almost every sensation, besides the intensity and other sensory qualities of its own, has a certain degree

    In contrast, in the frustration theory of aggression of representatives of the Yale group [J. Dollard et al., 1939] the catharsis hypothesis received a different, more specific and thus more verifiable formulation: “It is assumed that the suppression of any act of aggression is a frustration that increases the urge to aggression. Conversely, the implementation of any act of aggression

  15. Child's readiness for school
    Until now, psychology lacks a uniform and clear definition of the concept of “readiness for school” or “school maturity”. This is evidenced by the definition of these concepts by various and very reputable experts in this field. Here are some of them. School maturity is “the mastery of skills, knowledge, abilities, motivation and other necessary for the optimal level of schooling
  16. Motivation to study at the university (TN Ilyina)
    When creating this technique, the author used a number of other well-known techniques.

    For a deep and comprehensive analysis of the motivational and semantic sphere of any activity, including military, it is necessary, first of all, to clarify the essence and content of the basic concepts. By activity is meant a specific human form of an active relationship to the world, the content of which is its expedient change and transformation [58,151]. All activities include
