The psychology of self-motivation | Scott Geller | TEDxVirginiaTech

Nice Lecture

Ask yourself three questions , to know if you are self motivated

  1. Can you do it ?
    - do you have time , knowledge , skills to do it 
  2. Will it work ? 
  3. Is it worth it ? : theory "selection by consequences"  
If you ans yes to the above three questions , Then you feel competent.

For one to feel competent one needs to be given feedback , given recognition.

One need to be a "Success Seeker" not a "Failure Avoider".
