Self improvement

Motivation is an important element for a person to success in life. Everyone should have self-improvement in order to complete their tasks. According to Wikipedia, motivation is the driving force which causes us to achieve goals. According to various theories, motivation may be rooted in a basic need to minimize physical pain and maximize pleasure, or it may include specific needs such as eating and resting, or desired object, goal, state of being and etc.

There is two types of motivation which are intrinsic and extrinsic. Intrinsic motivation refers to motivation that is driven by an interest or enjoyment in the task itself while extrinsic motivation comes from outside of the individual. The example for extrinsic motivation are rewards in term of money, good grades and so on.

Intrinsic motivation occurs when people are internally motivated to do something because it either brings them pleasure, they think it is important, or they feel that what they are learning is significant. For instance, students are more likely to be internally motivated if they believe that they can be effective agents in reaching desired goals, they are interested in mastering a subject rather than just rote-learning to achieve good grades.
