in a motion as a motivational state

0:03

and it can be plotting on a three-dimensional access

0:06

there is level of arousal

0:09

there is approach withdrawal

0:13

and their is reward

0:15

punishment

0:16

which is the motivational aspect of emotion

0:19

and i'm not three-dimensional grid all human emotion can be applied

0:24

but the most important when i want to focus on right now is the motivational

0:28

dimension

0:29

because of the motions or motivations

0:31

and you can self-regulate your emotions using your frontal lobe

0:35

you can self-regulate your motivation

0:38

so that the

0:40

frontal limited circuit

0:42

is the source of self motivation

0:45

this is where you are able to motivate yourself in the absence of consequences

0:50

this is where you think about those goals

0:53

and thinking about them it actually motivates you

0:56

it actually creates a positive

0:59

motivational mood state

1:01

you want that goal you want to attainment and you will use that

1:05

motivation

1:05

to sustain action overtime in the absence

1:10

of consequences

1:13

germans are the only species the consisting behavior

1:16

more than seconds to eliminate

1:18

in the absence of a consequence

1:20

all other species are skinny ring and stimulus response organisms but not

1:26

humans

1:27

humans can build in apartments and then that cause they contain their behavior

1:32

further ahead in time

1:34

and they can reach into the lindbergh system

1:37

and motivate that behavior

1:39

this is the source of dr

1:42

persistence

1:43

willpower stick to a toothless

1:46

the ability to chart the course entombed target to death

1:51

as walt disney said the secret of all success

1:54

is disability

1:55

to take an idea

1:57

and to sustain action toward it

2:00

in spite of all irrelevant activity going on around him

2:04

you know what is persistence and determination

2:07

most adults would refer to this as willpower

2:09

and it is what many adults with a d_h_ deal we've interviewed

2:13

has said that the lack

2:15

the ability to engage any self disciplined persistent

2:20

course

2:21

toward their goals

2:23

they have goals they have ideas they have wishes they have dreams there are

2:26

things they hope to accomplish in life

2:29

and most of them will never be attained

2:32

not because the ideas were not good ones

2:35

not because the water and the windward paired

2:38

but because they can't fuel the fuel tank

2:41

this is like a great cruise missile

2:43

with a brilliant computer system and a map of the enemy's terrain

2:47

and the fuel tank is empty

2:49

the missile sits on the launching pad

2:52

brilliant as its plans may be

2:54

it cannot get off the pad

2:57

you need self motivation for all future directed behavior

3:03

and so now we know where the self motivation deficits are coming from

3:07

the corollary of this deficit

3:09

is that people with a_d_d_ will always be dependent

3:13

on the immediate consequences that surround them

3:16

for how long they can't sustain an action

3:19

for how long they can process

3:21

they will be externally dependent

3:24

on the fuel for their behavior

3:27

others art internally dependent they generate their own motivational states

3:32

so now you know why it is so hard to sustain action toward our goal because

3:38

part of the deficit is motivational

3:41

a_t_t_ is m_t_v_

3:43

motivation deficit disorder
