This parent highlights how our programmes have improved her son’s motivation.

“As soon as he comes through the door, he just wants to crack on with his homework. I can’t believe it’s the same boy.”

What can we learn about this from business and sport?

We know that  some of the worlds most successful companies set themselves what researchers called Big Hairy Audacious Goals, or BHAGS. For example, Henry Ford, the founder of Ford motor company, had a goal to make cars affordable for everyone.

Before he was 10 years-old golfer Rory McIlroy set himself the future goal of becoming a professional player, and winning every major championship in the sport. Furthermore, Team GB athletes who excelled at London 2012 set out clear visions of what they want to achieve at future Olympic games and World Championships.

Elite sport can teach us about motivation, resilience and performance

Likewise, in the world of tennis, Venus and Serena Williams didn’t just stumble into becoming two of the greatest players of all time, they had a clear vision in place from a young a age.

Certainly a common theme among all of these individuals is that set major goals for themselves.  They have been proactive and controlled the controllable factors within their lives. Each has played a large part in writing their own life story. This approach to goal-setting is a key part of understanding how to improve motivation.
