Peace Works Toolkit: Self-Motivation


Self-motivation is an essential skill for students to develop. It means that students will have the intrinsic drive to meet their goals and succeed, rather than relying on outside sources of motivation. Through these activities, students will learn to encourage themselves to reach important goals, as well as what to do when they face roadblocks.
