Motivation is the mental process that initiates, sustains or guides our behaviour. In essence it’s the mental kick up the ass we find that pushes us towards a new goal, task or activity.
However, there are two different types of motivation - intrinsic and extrinsic.
Intrinsic motivation refers to a behaviour which is driven by internal or personally meaningful rewards (opportunities to explore, learn etc.)
Intrinsically motivated people participate in something for reasons such as the enjoyment of playing their sport, the challenge of competition and reaching new personal levels, skill improvement, exploration of potential etc.
Intrinsically motivated people typically concentrate on skill improvement and their growth as individuals.
This type of motivation is far more effective at keeping us on track over extrinsic motivation which we’ll cover in another post!
