Motivation Doesn't Work. Here's What Does.....

Here’s What Does….

The first thing people usually say is “I need to find a way to get motivated.” The problem is, motivation only works for a short period if it works at all.

What if I could show you a way to double or triple the odds of you actually starting and sticking to a resolution?

A study by the British Journal of Health Psychology conducted an experiment to find out what gets people to follow through on their fitness goals and resolutions.

The experiment involved three groups:
248 people were randomly divided into 3 groups.

Group 1 (The Control Group)

Group 1 was asked to keep track of how frequently they exercised over a two week period.

Group 2

Group 2 was also asked to keep track of how often they exercised over a two week period. They were then instructed to read a pamphlet on the benefits of exercise as it related to reducing heart disease in people who exercise regularly. The participants were also told, “Most young adults who have stuck to a regular exercise program have found it to be very effective in reducing their chances of developing coronary heart disease.”
The goal was to motivate Group 2 to exercise regularly.

Group 3

Group 3 were also asked to track how often they exercised and were given the same pamphlet and the same speech as Group 2.
However, they were asked to fill out the following: During the next week, I will partake in at least 20 minutes of vigorous exercise on [DAY] at [TIME OF DAY] at/in [PLACE].

The Results

After 2 weeks
·         In Group 1, 38% of participants exercised at least once per week.
·         In Group 2, 35% of participants exercised at least once per week.
·         In Group 3, an incredible 91% of participants exercised at least once per week.

Simply by writing down a plan Group 3 was almost 3 times as likely to follow through.

And people given motivational information (Group 2) actually performed worse than the control group given no motivation at all.
(There have been almost 100 similar studies and getting similar results.)

Motivation is usually short lived if it works at all. Make a plan.


  1. Thanks a lot for providing individuals with an extremely pleasant opportunity to read
    critical reviews from here. It can be very
    superb and as well , jam-packed with a great time for me and my office mates to search your web site more than three times weekly to read through the fresh
    stuff you will have. And lastly, we are always fulfilled with your perfect strategies you give.

    Selected 4 tips in this posting are clearly the most beneficial we've had.

  2. I can identify with that because I used to
    work for a company that signed up people to sponsor kids in Africa.
    What made me disgusted with it was the fact we were going into working class
    areas and essentially guilted people into giving us their money.
    Disliking negative practices however shouldn take anything away from charities that
    are beneficial..

    relate to people in the present. There tons of people out

    You just gotta find them. I try to have it off almost the entire time when I'm at

    just super self conscious.Do you find that the human hair wigs that you've purchased last longer than the synthetic ones?
    I know you mentioned a few months and the thought of shelling out 500+ for a human hair wig
    only for it to die on me a few months later is a painful thought.

    I definitely have compared the cost of buying wigs vs getting
    hair cuts and styling every several weeks so it makes sense.

  3. Nice post. I learn something totally new and challenging on blogs I stumbleupon on a
    daily basis. It's always useful to read content from other authors and practice something from their sites.

  4. Thanks for another wonderful article. The place else may anybody get that
    type of info in such a perfect means of writing?

    I've a presentation subsequent week, and I'm at the search for
    such information.

  5. But when I revealed it to Dan, he loved it. It funny how validating this
    was. It just a name, after all but by liking it, it was as if he was
    recasting in a positive light all the parts of myself that I disdained.
    Sometimes he put a show on one and play a game on the
    other. So he not really watching the show, just listening.
    I can blame him, I do the same thing.

    hair extensions If males had chosen to leave their territory for reproductive success, as an example, they
    would do so within a short distance. Males who moved shorter distances were more successful in reproducing than those who moved longer distances.
    Further studies showed that when males moved further away from their territories there was
    a decrease in probability of successfully fledging

    hair extensions When the first set of them goes out, the two players who
    got it go off to the side with one pair of the assigned soakers (or a backup if one
    of the assigned players is chosen) Those players will form a square,
    and the two players with the debuff will touch at 10, passing it
    to the people on the "other side" of the square. These players will continue
    to pass the mark back and forth until it expires.

    Importantly, the people two remove the debuff from themselves cannot return to the ranged stack
    because they have to be there to receive the debuff when the assigned
    players need to drop theirs.Same goes for the replicated marks (the 2nd set the
    boss puts on players). hair extensions

    human hair wigs The Tories viewed the establishment of the Bank of England in 1694
    as simply ensuring the Whig dominance of commerce, and their
    ability to fund the War of Spanish Succession. Nevertheless,
    the Bank failed to remove the full burden of the heavy taxation upon landed classes, thus making the war increasingly
    unpopular with the Tories. While the Tories supported the divine right of monarchs, the Whigs favored a limited role
    of the monarchy. human hair wigs

    U Tip Extensions Sorry if my humour rubbed you the wrong
    way, but I exasperated with a lifetime of people who have no idea how to deal with anything
    but straight hair. I DID say that they should be honest and
    say they can do curly hair, if that the case.
    If they want to gain curly clients, they should seek out curly
    training. So spells like vicious mockery, sleep, and calm emotions definitely make sense, and with
    only a little bit of stretching so do healing word and zone of truth.
    But spells like light, comprehend languages, detect magic,
    feather fall, silent image, and heat metal don make sense.
    And Magical Secrets just makes this even worse, because now they can suddenly cast any damn spell they please as if they were a wizard or a warlock or something..

    abnormal?We have seen how hair loss in people with
    long hair appears more dramatic and how long hairs are more easily damaged and prone
    to falling. But most importantly, we must also evaluate what is causing the falling

    Strap ons also assist in providing multiple penetrations in addition to other stimulation. The design of this vibe is just gorgeous to
    look at, but as far as functionality goes I found it to be
    lacking. From end to end this vibe has beautiful details.

    This weekend, Dunham responded to accusations from National Review and Truth Revolt that what she had
    actually done in her memoir was reveal that she had
    sexually abused her younger sister. On Twitter, she went on a self described rage spiral:
    "The right wing news story that I molested my little sister isn't just LOL it's really f ing upsetting and disgusting," she tweeted.

    male sex toys It's amazing that with something as safe, simple, affordable and revolutionary as emergency contraception it STILL isn't being used by millions of women who
    could use it, and who would prefer not to become pregnant.
    In part, that's because so many doctors and clinics still do not inform and educate their patients
    about EC, but there's also a lot of misinformation out
    there around EC which confuses women (sometimes quite intentionally).

    Another way to stimulate the senses is inducing a feeling of pleasure; for example, with a vibrator.
