Using Incentives to Motive Yourself
Herbalife: Creative Weight Loss Motivation
Uploaded by WeightLossInfo. - News videos from around the world.
Chapter 11 discusses goal motivation and incentives. In the test they use clean clothes as an incentive for washing your dirty laundry and an A in a class as an incentive for studying for an exam. I came across this video and I thought it was an interesting and effective way to motivate yourself. This man is using his beard, which he said he really doesn't like, as an incentive to get him to lose weight. To me this is a really good incentive to use because, like he said, the beard annoys him and he has to look at it and feel it on his face every day so he's more likely to achieve his goal than if his incentive was just to be healthier or skinnier.
