Intrinsic v. Extrinsic Motivation

Happy Sunday, SoulShiners!!! I hope that you’ve had a great weekend…Saturday was a beauty! A big, fat congratulations to Kim Kranz on her first place win at the Killington Triathlon…boarding, biking, and running!!!! You go with your badass and super motivated self, Burls!!!

What motivates you and how do you sustain that motivation? Does your motivation come from inside of you? Do you do it for the joy and personal fulfillment that you get from it....OR....does your motivation come from external factors such as rewards and/or praise? You may operate on a continuum between both. If you're more intrinsically motivated, you will typically give more effort, be more persistent, have higher levels of concentration, and perform better doing whatever it is that you're doing.
