The textbook, video presentations and the instructor’s podcast discuss how motivation is always multiply-determined, that is influenced by many factors that sometimes conflict with each other. Given what you know, what you have read about new year’s resolutions, what you read in your textbook, and the video clips available this week, please write a reply to one or both of the following questions:
1. Do you think that that simply deciding to change your own behaviour, as done in new year’s resolutions or with pop psychology like Napolean Hill’s video or the more modern incarnation, “The Secret”, can really be successful? Identify what you think are the solid motivational principles and also what are the questionable claims.
2. Do you have any specific examples of successes or failures that you can analyze to show the interaction of multiple motives?
You are expected to draw upon the learning materials to support your response. (eg., quote the podcast or videos, mention the textbook — specify relevant page numbers, etc.); this is not just about your opinion.
You must support your opinion with high quality information.
