What’s Your Motivation?

As you think about your motivation, know that there are two general categories of motivation. Extrinsic motivation comes from factors in your environment, such as other people. Intrinsic motivation comes from within. External factors, such as fitting into a specific dress, tend to be more short-lived, while intrinsic factors, such as wanting to feel better each day, can keep you going for the long term.
