The secret to achieving your goals and staying motivated is simple. Almost everything in this world happens because of motivation. Why does a plant grow towards the sun? Why do bees pollinate flowers? Theses things happen because of a reward system. It is universal. The plant is rewarded with more food after it grows towards the sun. It is a lot of work for the plant to grow and it takes energy, but it achieves the goal because of the reward. Bees get honey after doing a lot of hard work. Without a reward, it can be very challenging to stay motivated.

Many goals, like getting into a top college, or having a great career, can take years of hard work. Losing weight or getting in shape can takes months of discipline. Even when you know there is a big reward at the end, most people cannot stay motivated long enough to achieve it. This is why only a tiny percentage of people achieve much success. 

What I am going to tell you is life changing. Are you ready for it? Read the next line slowly and carefully.

When you do something that is beneficial for you life and goals, give yourself a quick reward. 

Your brain will only change with frequent rewards. The size of the reward is not important. It could be as simple as eating a small snack you really like after exercising, or watching your favorite video when you complete a homework assignment. The key is to do it often when you complete something that is positive. These rewards should not be given out unless you do something that improves your life. 

Over time if you keep doing it you will start to crave the behavior that drives success. The concept is called Gamification and it really works! It is so powerful that many people believe it is what motivated the world to exist in the first place. I'm not excluding God, since something was needed to create the first particle and to create these natural rules.

Sorry for being so inactive lately. I'll try to post more often!
