In our day-to-day experiences, cognition and motivation are two, intertwined processes that guide our behavior and even the planning of future behavior. As an inherent process, motivation serves to direct our needs-driven behaviors, at the most basic level, ensuring survival; at more sophisticated, complex levels, motivation directs our goals-driven behaviors, working to satisfy those higher-order needs we hold. Various factors (e.g. other individuals, situations, awareness, etc.) may influence the just how motivated one becomes in each situation. Similarly, emotional regulation plays an important role in directing goal related behavior; identifying the effects of emotional leverage is important in motivationally directed behavior. Reflect on your personal experiences, thinking about the influence of motivation and emotion in your own life.
- Discuss the theory of motivation you see as most applicable to your life and behaviors, sharing how you become and remain motivated to reach your goals?
- Based on your reflection, how has emotion affected your motivation-driven behaviors?
