RISE with Us! Motivation #Czech-Slovak

Genesis Leo explaining the workbook

Czech Slovak IAYSP team hosted the fifth session of RISE with Us! project online through Zoom.

To be able to advance in life, we need to be motivated in our actions.
The reasons behind our motivation need to have a strong foundation, and thereupon, an individual needs to be mindful of their actions and thoughts. One should not be dependent on receiving motivation automatically without effort. But instead, a person should know how to nurture motivation so that this force can grow to help expand a person’s life goals.

During the fifth session, a short introduction on IAYSP and the Rise with Us! series was presented, thereupon an icebreaker where each participant had to reply with a yes or no if they resonated with sentences the master of ceremonies was saying and whether or not these brief messages related to them.

Then the participants were asked to reflect upon the meaning of motivation.

The main lecture was given by a guest speaker, Deborah Cali. She divided her lecture into two interactive five-seven minutes talks, “What mindfulness and motivation are” and “How to generate that personally in our daily life.”
Each question was accompanied with deep questions to reflect upon, and composed into participant online workbooks.

The event ended with a group discussion where participants could share their thoughts, insights gained, and explore moments in their life where they felt motivated, and establish the reason as to why their motivation was strong at these times.
