Motivated?

What is motivation?

Motivation is a psychological state that arouses an organism to action toward a desired goal. Motivation can be extrinsic or intrinsic. In the first case, you do the action because you will receive something in return. In contrast, if you do the action because you feel free and happy and not to receive any physical thing, that would be considered internal motivation.

Here, I want to show what do I do when I am motivated.

In this video you can see me wake up at 6:20 A.M. because the regional bus to go to Val-David leaves at 7:30. I carry two crashpads and a backpack into a bus, a subway and a regional bus. Then, I travel for 2 and a half hours. When I arrive at Val-David, I walk for 40 minutes to reach the climbing park. And finally, I am ready for climbing at 10:30. 

To start my climbing session, I warm up on the easy problems. Then, I eat a little bit and I start to work on my projects. I spend all day trying a few movements. Normally, the movements are very hard, very intense and very short (about 1 or 2 seconds).

At 5:00 P.M., I walk again for 40 minutes to reach the road where I have to wait for the regional bus to come back to Montreal.  After that, I take a subway and a bus to get home.

At the end of the day at 9:00 P.M., I eat at home, feeling satisfied. It does not matter if I did my projects or not. I always feel so peaceful. I really like to push myself over my limits and that is my reward.

For me, rock climbing also requires traveling, walking, trying hard and having a lot of fun in the process. I enjoy discovering more and more about climbing. When I saw my video I realized that I have a strong internal motivation for climbing.

Thanks for reading and watching.
