What is Motivation?
Motivation, often driven by curiosity, is what drives us forward in life. It stimulates us to learn and improve and to set and attain goals. Emotionally intelligent people are often intrinsically motivated by the task itself to achieve inner goals rather than external rewards such as money, praise or, avoiding punishment (extrinsic motivation).
Did You Know? Intrinsic motivation starts with infancy. After that, adults support or suppress this motivation depending on their parental approach.
“Motivation is an essential part of Social and Emotional Learning (SEL).”
