Motivation Formula V x E = M Value Expectation Motivation
V = Value Benefits you will obtain from seeking and obtaining a college degree. The greater the personal benefits and outcomes are to you, the more motivated you will be. The greater your motivation the more time, effort, money, and sacrifice you are willing to give. Rate V 0 – 10 from lowest to highest
E= Expectation How likely do you think you are to earn a degree with minimal effort? Weight your abilities against the difficulty of the classes you must take to attain your degree. Rate E 0 – 10 from low expectation to high
M = Motivation Multiply V x E Remember this is out of 100 possible points If your score is low, you may join the high percentage of those who sadly drop out If your score is average, depending on the choices you make, you have a 50-50 chance of graduating.

Commitment An unbending intention A single mindedness of purpose that promises to overcome all obstacles regardless of how you may feel at any particular moment Motivation surges from commitment to a passionately held purpose Visualize the goal and what you want the end result to be The visualization technique will keep you OnCourse
How to visualize “RUUF” R= Relax Use present tense= I am 20 pounds lighter Use all 5 senses= What do I see, hear, smell, taste, and touch to get that 20 lbs., off? Feel the feelings/emotions= I know that I am going to be hungry and have to give up sugar. Positive self talk along with visualization limits the “stinkin thinkin” associated with goals and commitments that may be difficult for you Coach Krist Keeping your commitment sets the standard for you to be successful with your future commitments. You know that when you make a promise to yourself you will keep it.
Self Motivation at work Richard Bolles- Figure out what kind of job would make you happiest because the kind that would make you happiest is also the one where you will do your best and most effective work. Also when choosing an employer you should consider how their purpose(s) and value(s) align with yours. Ask them to explain their mission statement to you and how they have personally applied it in the past. The art of visualization, self-motivation, and goal setting that you used to get through college will apply in your professional and personal life evermore.
