  1. I have these problems mentioned in this video of just not having full motivation to achieve my goals sometimes. I always do something for a day or two and then get too busy and stop reaching toward my goal. I say I’m going to go to the gym every day, but never end up going every single day and something has to change. The motivational quote thing would be good for me because they always inspire me to get up and do something. I am thinking I will post some around my dorm room and have better results in reaching my goals.

  2. I agree that making a plan to help achieve your goals is a great way to help you remind yourself what you really want to accomplish. The obstacles that stop most people from achieving there goals is usually themselves because they don’t take the time necessary to make sure those goals are being accomplished. Our society is so use to instant gratification that we think things with come easily and immediately, but that is just not the case. If the things we want don’ t come easily or quickly we often get discouraged and abandon our goals. I think the most important thing for people to understand is that not all our goals with come easily, and if it is something you really want then you should give everything you have to make those goals come true.

  3. I appreciated how in-depth this video went and how it showed a personal example of how to achieve a goal. This video helped me realize that I need to start working harder on the goals I have set for myself. This video helped grow my philosophical sustainability because I learned about planning for the process of achieving a goal. I will use these skills I learned to work towards getting better grades, working out more and meeting new people.

  4. When it comes to motivation, I find I have bursts of motivation to do something. It would last for about a week and then it the desire to continue would die out. I believe if someone is to have real motivation is for there to be a reward that means genuinely means something to that person. For example, just going for a run would not really motivate me. I need an end game so to speak such as a build up to a race. Then I could test my abilities that I had been working on up until that race.

  5. There were many aspects of this video that i completely agree with. It showed a personal example of how to achieve a goal. The biggest goals I have set out for myself have come this semester while taking Eric Pappas’ individual sustainability class. I have realized their are goals in the physical, philosophical, intellectual, social, and emotional dimensions that I need serious work in. I am just proud of myself for taking this class so that I can start working on my individual sustainability while I am 22 year old rather than later on in my life. I need to keep myself motivated at all times even when I start to lose interest.

    1. This video opened my eyes towards my life. I have dreams, but I don’t have goals. There are things I want to do, but I realized that I am not making or have not made significant progress towards those things. For instance, I want to be a boxer and I want to be a better dancer. Although I practice boxing and dancing a couple times a week, I realize it is not enough to make steady and substantial progress. I now understand that I need to plan out what I am doing more so I can visualize what steps I am going to take along my path.

  6. I often forget that change is slow and that there is a process to reach a goal. When I have a goal in mind I try to achieve this goal as soon as possible, which is typically impossible. When I don’t reach this goal right away I get discouraged and give up. In the future I need to create a slow, specific plan in order to reach my goals. I also need to remember to focus on one thing at a time. I’ve often tried to make many changes all at once which is also very difficult, if not impossible. Hopefully by making changes one at a time and in a realistic manner I will be able to accomplish the things I’ve always wanted to do!

  7. I really liked this video as it played out some useful ways to start accomplishing goals. I personally pride myself on accomplishing little goals for myself, but I rarely think about long-term and substantial goals that take lots of time and effort to accomplish. The part of this video that stood out to me the most was when Heather said that change is slow. Most people, myself included, want instant results and gratification from the changes they have made, but in order to truly reek the benefits of such changes, they have to be consistent over time. This seems daunting but I believe that habit is a powerful force, that the longer someone does something, the easier it becomes.

  8. I thought this video was really great! At times I find myself having to motivate my friends around me to keep pushing in life and I say a lot of the same things. I have always been good at finding motivation and happiness in the little things in life because my dad is a very inspirational teacher. I really like the ending with the idea of just going out and doing what you want to do even when change is slow, the little things can make the biggest difference in the long run. Life does fly by and if you wait to long you will be old and have done nothing of what you wanted to do. It got me thinking of the things I really want to do while in college and even when I graduate in a few years. When I am low on motivation to do things I will definitely think of this video to pump me up and get me moving.

  9. This video drove home the fact that although I have a variety of recreational aspirations but have done little in the way of arranging to reach them. I’ve always managed to persuade myself to put things off again and again because I “don’t have enough time” or “it’ll cost too much money that I could have more fun with later” but never end up making significantly better use of those resources. I think I would be much better off if I just proverbially took the plunge into the activities, like Heather suggested.

  10. ): I used be a person that always make up or set up so many goals for myself to achieve, but I always end up giving up. After watching this video, I realized that it is important for us to realize that change is slow, and it is normal for us to know that change doesn’t appear right away because it takes time. Sometimes we don’t see any change but it doesn’t mean that nothing is changing, we also need to make a clear list of what we are going to do and stick with the plan, the process is hard and that’s why we need to go step by step to feel confident about ourselves in order to achieve our goals.

  11. Achieving my goals has been a struggle. Obstacles dominate my motivation to become the person I want to be. It beats me up. My motivation sadly does not last long time and I believe that the reason I do not achieve some of my goals is the fact that there is not a show in immediate reason most of the time. I want results quickly and I make the excuse that if it is not happening right now then it is not worth to pursue the goal. This video reminded me of the many goals I probably would have achieved by now but was unable to do so. I feel as if I wasted away some of my life by lazily putting off things I wanted to do.

  12. I really liked this video because I never really looked at accomplishments as having to take things step by step. I realized that Heather is right, to achieve a goal, you have to make a change first and take action to it. We can talk about things we want to do all day long but when it comes to it, we have to change our thought in order to make the action.

  13. I found this video very encouraging. I am about to do my first marathon in a month and I wish I would have watched this video during my training. I never looked at my small milage gain as steps and accomplishments. I see it as accomplishing something when I finish the goal I set out to do and not the little goals that I complete during training. This was a great video to help me in the future accomplish more goals that I have set out to do.

  14. This video is very realistic and easy for anyone to follow. To achieve your goals and maximize your full potential you must be extremely dedicated and willing to overcome any obstacle that you may face along the way. Currently, I am “shredding” or “cutting” for the summer. This means to decrease your body fat while keeping your muscle mass. This is an extremely hard process to do because your calories are restricted and your training is very intense. However, I am very dedicated to achieving my goal and I wrote out a plan like the video stated. If you put your heart and mind to anything, it can be done.

  15. This video helped allow me to form better steps in learning about and achieving my goals. I always struggle with bringing my goals to real life instead of just keeping them in my head. This video open my eyes to ways to make this happen. I hope to exercise more and using the steps outlined in the video, I’m hoping to achieve this goal I’ve had for a long time!

  16. I feel that believing in yourself to be able to achieve your goals in one for the most important things someone can do for themselves. People generally tend to be self conscious and doubt themselves instead of building themselves up and thinking positively. This problem is even worsened by the fact that the media tells people how they should look and act. People then get discouraged because they hold themselves to such high standards. I believe the most important thing is to be yourself and not compare yourself to others. Doing this will make you a much happier person and s lot more self assured, increasing your ability to achieve goals.

  17. This has been the best video I have watched so far on this site. She stated what we needed to do, gave examples, and background information on how we can do it. She also mention that sometimes things do not go as planned therefore you have to adjust what you are doing. We bend but we do not break is a great motto to have when you are thrown into a situation that is unstable. I too do tri’s so the video was very applicable to me because I know exactly what she was talking about and have been through those struggles as well. But, what people may not realize is the format she gave us for achieving a goal is applicable to us everyday in everything we do from our homework, working out, and everything in our schedules. We prioritize things we love and make plans to accomplish them everyday.
