Motivation and direction of movement in Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) is an extremely powerful key concept. It is said by many to contain the most accessible, positive and useful aspects of modern psychology, and so can be helpful in virtually every aspect of personal and inter-personal relations.
Failing to Plan is Planning To Fail – Begin with the end in Mind
Do you move towards your solutions or away from your issues? Ever wonder why you do not achieve your desires or goals…motivational direct is a key to unlocking your full potential.

Motivation Direction – Toward or Away
Some people have no idea what they want but know what they don’t want. Their life is based on moving away from those things they don’t want. The motivation direction, also known in NLP terms as a Meta programme, determines the type of consequences that are likely to move us to action. It is an important aspect of how we motivate ourselves. Are you motivated by what you want (pleasure) or by what you want to avoid (pain)? This particular way of thinking profoundly affects many aspects of our lives.
You can discover a person’s motivation direction by asking “why is having that (value) important to you?” and carefully listening to their reply.
Everyone has the ability to do “away from” and “towards” thinking, depending on the situation. Some people however, have a more natural disposition for one or the other depending on the situation and whether the reward (pleasure) is greater or less than the loss (pain). Generally critical thinking will require “away from” thinking whereas setting goals and plans ideally requires “towards thinking”.
Of course, one person’s pain can be another’s pleasure and vice versa. My worst day would consist of bungee jumping, white water rafting in an icy river, followed by a night of camping in damp muddy clothes. Some might find this exhilarating.
The most useful orientation is to be able to do both. See possibilities while dealing with problems while still small and manageable is a powerful pattern.
Finding someone’s motivation direction
What do you want in (life, a job or a house)? …The person will tell you either what they want or what they don’t want. For example, “I want a house overlooking the ocean with huge open rooms and cool breezes.” “I want a house that doesn’t feel cramped or hot and is in an area with no pollution”. This could describe the same house.
I don’t want to be anxious over I want to have an abundance of good feelings is another example.
Train your unconscious mind to deliver all the personal motivation you need.
Make sure this year doesn’t just slip by (again!) by injecting your brain with a healthy shot of unshakeable motivation
Why is it that personal motivation can ebb and flow like the tides? One day you’re full of energy and focus for that project, and the next you can barely bring yourself to even think about it.
We all know that perseverance is essential for success in any field, so why is it so hard to maintain personal motivation over the long term?
If you have ever felt guilty about a home project that never got finished (or started!), a business idea that was stillborn, or a work project that just should have been better, you’ll know what a tricky beast personal motivation can be.
No matter how confident or certain you are that ‘this time will be different’, a couple of days into the next big thing, and it’s as if that original enthusiasm never existed. You grope around your mind for it, finding only boredom and distraction.
You are not a machine
To maintain personal motivation over the long term, certain things need to be in place. You need to be approaching your project in the right way, to be taking care of yourself properly, and to avoid making certain mistakes such as talking about your project to others too soon.
Plus, and it’s a big plus, you absolutely need to prepare your mind in the right way. After all, it’s the mental approach that sets apart the high achievers from the also-rans. And this is where the Power Personal Motivation Pack will get you firing on all cylinders.
