    Obviously you aren't motivated in this class or you would think of some examples from your own experiences.

    From my experiences --

    I was often late to my first-hour class in high school and would have to serve detentions after school. That motivated me to try harder to be on time.

    I'm not motivated to quit smoking, so I continue to smoke. The immediate rewards are far more important to me than all of the threats about the effects of smoking.

    I enjoy answering students' questions and so am motivated to volunteer to help on the Jiskha Homework Help Board.
