So to learn to ignore irrelevant information and overpower inappropriate behavior in order to function in a complex environment we need Motivation. The word motivation is common in everyday language, but is not easy to deï¬ne. The concept of motivation is related to, but distinct from other concepts, such as instincts, drives, and reï¬exes. It is known as the internal force that produces actions on the basis of the momentary balance between our needs and the demands of our environment. Motivation is derived from the Latin word “movere.” It is a phenomenon involved in a person’s drives and goal-seeking behavior; the feature that encourages an individual to action towards a desired ambition, occasions, and sustains certain goal directed behaviors. It is an impulse that causes a person to influence human behavior in such a way that it helps pursue particular goals because they are valued. ...read more.

43. 44. 45. 46. When students have classes with a motivated and energetic teacher their participation in the lesson increases automatically. As a role model such a motivated teacher help the students to use their full potential to achieve their aims. Also, according to the researches in this area, it is a fact that extra curriculum activities are useful factors to motivate the students. The activities enable effective communication opportunities for all the participants: teachers, students, parents, and administrators.

Conclusion

Go do something! Compare a student who lacks motivation and who hardly studies, to a student who is highly motivated, and who devotes many hours to his studies; they will get absolutely different grades. 64. 65. In conclusion I would like to say possession of motivation is a sign of strong desire, energy and enthusiasm, and the willingness to do whatever it takes to achieve what one sets out to do. A motivated person is a happier person, more energetic, and sees the positive end result in his/her mind. Understand that finishing what you start is important. Hammer into your mind that whatever you start you have to finish. Develop the habit of going to the finish line. Socialize with achievers and people with similar interests or goals, since motivation and positive attitude are contagious. Associate with motivated people, who share your interests. Never procrastinate anything. Procrastination leads to laziness, and laziness leads to lack of motivation. Persistence, patience and not giving up despite failure and difficulties keep up the motivation to succeed. Read about the subjects of your interest. This will keep your enthusiasm and ambition alive. Constantly affirm to yourself that you can and will succeed. Visualize your goals with happiness and joy. Remember, if a certain goal is really important, you need motivation to keep you going. 66. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. ...read more.
