An attitude is certainly as strong as the flu, but it isn’t something we have to live with forever anymore than the flu is. Attitudes are judgments—enduring, deeply rooted views about what we like and what we dislike. Attitudes are also powerful. They mold behavior. If your attitude is that you’re not interesting at a party, then your behavior will probably match your attitude.

A second approach to thinking about motivation is to stop assuming that motivation is mysterious, determined at birth, or hard to come by. Perhaps there’s nothing missing in you. What we call motivation could be something that you already possess—the ability to do a task even when you don’t feel like it. This is a habit that you can develop with practice. The following suggestions offer ways to do that. Promise it. Motivation can come simply from being clear about your goals and acting on them. Say that you want to start a study group.

Suspend self-judgment. If you continually judge your behaviors as “bad” or “stupid,” your mind will quit making discoveries. For your own benefit, be kind to yourself. Tell the truth. Suspending judgment helps you tell the truth about yourself. “The truth will set you free” is a saying that endures for a reason.
