Take a moment and congratulate yourself—you are in the final week of class!

During the last 4 weeks, you reflected on what success looks like, how to manage your time, setting attainable goals, and the importance of self-esteem and positive thinking. In our final week we examine intrinsic and extrinsic motivation along with self-discipline. Motivation helps drive us toward our goals while self-discipline and critical thinking can keep us on track.

Consider your own motivation and decision making habits that can either drive you toward or push you away from your goals.

Respond to the following in a minimum of 175 words:
• What are some goals you have set for yourself?
• Reflect on your own self-discipline and critical thinking habits. What are some changes you have made over the last 5 weeks to remain focused on your goals?
• What strategies can you use to remain committed to and on track towards achieving your goals over the next 12 months?
• What role does intrinsic and extrinsic motivation play in your ability to achieve your goals?
