Science explains why it’s so hard to reach our goals. Many adults have goals but somewhere between setting them and accomplishing them, we lose our way. This is why New Year’s resolutions famously fail.
I want to make sure I reach the goals I set for myself and understand the psychology that keeps us from getting there.
Melissa Fuesting of Motivation Student Nation Podcast knows how to make us connect our daily practices to our end goals and is here to show us how to do it. Some of the psychology you’ll take away from this episode is understanding self-determination theory, intrinsic goals, and imposters syndrome.
