The present study aimed at identifying the predictive ability of goal orientations and mindfulness in achieving motivation among Yarmouk University students.The study used the descriptive, predictive, and relational approaches. The sample of the study consisted of 998 male and female undergraduate students selected using the convenient method. To achieve the objectives of the study, the scale of mindfulness (Abu Hassan, 2019) was adopted. The goal orientations (Abu Ghazal, Hammouri, and Ajlouni, 2013), and the achievement motivation scale developed by the researchers were administered. The findings of the predictive model showed that the predictors: Mastery /approach goal orientations, performance/approach goal orientations, description, observation, non-interaction with the internal experience, and conscious working interpreted respectively as 35.06, 7.78, 5.56, 1.85, 0.85, 0.69 from the variation in achievement motivation among Yarmouk University students.
