Greetings for the day!

Motivation is a tricky thing to corral. It is tricky, but not at all impossible. Motivation lies in your head and this is the science behind it: Dopamines chemical signal gets passed from one neuron to the next, interacting with various receptors inside the synapse between the two neurons.

Another argument is that Dopamine was all about pleasure, but pleasure is just the tip of the iceberg, Dopamines effect on the body is felt in many areas on our respective bodies, including motivation, memory, behaviour, cognition, attention, mood, learning and also pleasurable reward.

Low levels of dopamine make people and other animals less likely to work for things, so it has to do with motivation and cost analyses than pleasure itself.

The other day I was reading an article and in that it was written that setting incremental goals can really help you to positively reinforce every time you complete a step and meet a challenge. The article was by Neurologist Judy Willis. Obviously along with this, we must include effort. Most of the times with me, it is just the old-fashioned way and that is nothing but, get up, determine that you are going to do and then with sheer perseverance, go out there and achieve it.

I also want to let you know that, this is just the beginning, if anything else is there, with which I can help you, do let me know and we can work together to make an effective way out.

Thanks.
