Motivation is a topic that I LOVE talking about!
Motivation can be so different for so many people. I’d love to share a little bit on the different types of motivation & help you find what motivates you!
“A REASON OR REASONS FOR ACTING OR BEHAVING IN A PARTICULAR WAY”
Two types of motivation – INTRINSIC & EXTRINSIC
INTRINSIC – Performing an action or behavior because you ENJOY the activity itself.
EXTRINSIC – When you are motivated by external factors. This form of motivation usually drives you to do things for rewards or pressures rather than for the fun of it.
My Advice – identify which form of motivation you use. Some people will use one or the other while some may use both! (I’m one of those people) Everyone is different.
Understanding what motivates you is extremely important & will keep on track to achieving your goals.
Questions for you
- Are you motivated by a result or a reward?
- Do you enjoy the activity & do it for fun?
- What’s your ‘WHY’?
For me I’ve also changed my mind set & find it great for keeping my motivation, which I have spoken about before. I use the ‘Opportunity VS Obligation’ method.
I believe viewing everything in life as an OPPORTUNITY rather than an obligation will help with your mental strength, your training & positively impact your life!
