The two types of motivations that are available are intrinsic and extrinsic motivations. Intrinsic motivation is the type of motivation that comes from within. For example, you know that you need to work on something. Your desire to work will come from your heart because of the internal rewards that you will get. For example, you have received a perfect grade on your exam because you worked hard for it.

You feel proud of this accomplishment, and this will motivate you further to work harder in the future. Extrinsic motivation is the type of motivation that comes from outside sources. For example, you know that your parents expect you to do well so you will become motivated through what they say.

There are two main types of motivation that are available, namely, intrinsic and extrinsic. There are many categories that are available that will fall under these two types. Intrinsic motivation is a type of motivation that comes from within. This means that you will be motivated based on your inner desires. For example, you would like to lose weight, and you are going to lose weight based on what you want to achieve.

Extrinsic motivation is a type of motivation that comes from external desires. For example, someone who would like to lose weight may want to do it because his girlfriend would like him to lose weight. Some say that intrinsic motivation can be more effective than intrinsic, but it would still depend on the person.
