Intrinsic Motivation

Only Intrinsic Motivation Truly Motivate You.

Have you ever been unmotivated and worried?

Human motivation is often divided into two types: “extrinsic motivation” and “intrinsic motivation”.

Extrinsic motivation is the motivation that comes from a particular purpose or reward.

For example, if you work for a company to make a living, that feeling is extrinsic motivation.

Intrinsic motivation, on the other hand, is a burning, purposeless motivation in the mind.

Whether you find work fun or boring in our society is a very important issue.

Whether you enjoy your work depends on the size of your intrinsic motivation.

In general, extrinsic motivation is vulnerable to adversity, but intrinsic motivation does not go away.

Intrinsic motivation is very important to keep things going.
