How to Increase Motivation Using Psychology

Write a $100 Check and Give it to a Friend

  1. Choose one specific thing you need to do today,
  2. Write a check for $100 (or more),
  3. Hand this check to a trusted friend, roommate, accountability partner, and
  4. Tell them that they can cash the check if you don’t finish that one thing by midnight tonight.

When you successfully complete the thing you just got done, have them hand the check back to you.

Disaster avoided.

Why Psychology and NLP are the Keys to Motivation…

In the past, you used to avoid doing things (exercising, building your business, etc.) because they are more uncomfortable than the alternative tasks you procrastinate with (Netflix, eating junk food, etc.).

Why do your emotions pull you towards one thing?

Why do they magnetically repel you from something else?

How Writing a $100 Check Will Boost Your Motivation.

Our bodies are pre-programmed with certain drivers of behavior as survival mechanisms to keep us alive.

  • We move away from immediate pain, and
  • We move towards immediate pleasure.

Imagine that you’re standing on the second story of a building.

It’s freezing cold outside, the middle of winter, and you’re in the comfort of your own home.

What would it take for you to jump out of the window into the ice?

Can you see how your body is magnetically repelled away from the cold ice? And you are magnetically drawn to the warm comfort of the home?

Now, imagine that the house catches fire behind you and you begin burning your lungs with the black smoke.

When the comfort of staying in place is more painful than the thing you need to do, you’re going to instinctually move towards the lesser of the two evils.

So now, the thing you need to do is less painful than the prospect of losing $100.

Can you see how by following your psychological drivers, motivation becomes effortless?

Motivational videos pump you up with feel-good emotions while you stay in place.

Write the $100 check, and motivation will become a breeze.
