Motivations can make or break any dream...
If you've ever listened to a motivational speaker or read tons of self-help books only to find that you're in the same mental space you were in before you started, then you're definitely not alone. Many people look for the motivation to accomplish their dreams, but never really stop to consider what motivation actually is. When we lack innerstanding or understanding, words tend to go in one ear and out the other. This almost guarantees that very little change in behavior will occur.
What is Motivation?
In the Thunderground Thursday segment titled, Motivation, Chief Yuya defines "pure motivation" as movement based on logical and conscious thought. It is the drive that builds up within us when we consciously decide that we should do something and for a very strong reason. An internal need to over come a challenge, a certain inspiration, or our desire to grow are different examples of pure motivation.
A view on the different types of motivation is also offered in this segment. Intrinsic or pure motivation is described as our movements that are based on our sincere desire and conscious decision to move. Extrinsic motivation is described our moving because of someone else's sincere desire to make us move in a certain manner. Our biological needs which are, for the most part, out of our control are also described as extrinsic motivations because they occur or demand our attention without thought on our part.
