Intrinsic motivation is an incentive to engage in a specific activity that derives from pleasure in the activity itself rather than because of any external benefits that might be obtained. It sounds like, “I’m going to work hard to get that promotion so I can be more fulfilled at work.” On the other hand, extrinsic motivation is an external incentive to engage in a specific activity, especially motivation arising from the expectation of punishment or reward.

10 min read · Aug 18th · Do you struggle with motivation? Are you unsure what drives you? Understanding the drive theory of motivation can help you find your true motivation.
Breakdown and understand precisely what’s behind your ‘drive’ Are you acting out of fear, rage or love? Are you driven to achieve someone else’s goal? Recognize and acknowledge the truth, without judgement. Understand your ‘why’ and set your intentions from a space of expansion. Make sure your goals encourage you to grow, rather than represent the unachievable and offer you an excuse for not trying. Practice holding the emotional frequency associated with your desired future, and witness the changes in you as they occur in the present. Spend time really envisioning your desired future as though it’s an average day for you. Witness the physical feelings (butterflies in your stomach, quickening heartbeat etc…) and recognize them as they begin to show up in your daily life now.
