Motivation is defined as the process that initiates, guides, and maintains goal-oriented behaviors. It may come from your own interest, or arise out of necessity--having to learn something for school, work or survival, like learning a new skill like cooking or changing a car tire.
What works hand-in-hand with motivation is the right attitude. It is a mental orientation that shapes who we are. The best news about optimism is that it is a learnable quality. That means you can learn how to think positively by adopting an optimistic mindset.
Learn powerful and practical ideas that you and your child can apply for an attitude shift and start an upward cycle of success.
We often hear parents complain about their teenager’s lack of motivation at school, difficulty studying, doing homework, and staying focused, but the same people have no problem playing video games all day or watching series on Netflix.
Parents of teens know how much they like to debate and question things. But how can we encourage them to be self-motivated and look way past the inconveniences, shortcomings, and the hiccups that will, without question, arise when they undertake something challenging? Here's an article by Christine Carter, answering a reader's question on how we can help teenagers to be self-motivated and independent.
You CAN improve cognitive skills & motivation through COGNITIVE TRAINING.
At our center, students are sometimes described by parents as lacking in motivation. We urge parents to find the root of what's causing this. There are cases where these are not willful behaviors--these students just lack the skills needed to make them focus and process easily.
Fix the root, the behavior gets changed.
Contact us and see if we're the right program for your loved one or someone you know--a student, patient, tutee, friend's child. This summer is a good time to train intensively to prepare well ahead for the next academic year.
