Why INTENTION Is Better than Motivation For Your Goals

 In Business Psychology, health, Lifestyle, Success

Intention over motivation?

Yes. As long as your intentions are clearly stated, they are more important to achieving your goals.

It seems from research conducted by the British Journal of Health Psychology that motivation is not the key to success. The researchers in that experiment observed three groups to measure the effectiveness of clearly stating intentions versus motivating the groups.

The results showed that motivation had no significant effects on the goals. 

What they found instead was that people who explicitly stated the conditions for the new behaviors were more likely to stick to their goals. In other words, individuals who clarified their intentions to achieve their goals were more likely to succeed.

How do you clarify your intentions to spring into action?

For every goal, you need to write WHEN and HOW you are going to complete the action steps.


Gain clarity on why you do the things you do


How do you stick to your goals and follow through without having to motivate yourself all the time?

Simply by writing down a plan that said exactly when and where you intend to complete the desired action.

For every goal, you need to write WHEN and HOW you are going to complete the action steps.

You have to deciding in advance when and where you will take specific actions to reach your goal. This simple strategy can double or triple your chances for success.
