What is motivation? Types and how to find your motivation?

Types of motivation

External – we NEED to do something, because the circumstances have developed so. For example, a strong thunderstorm makes us run home faster. Or fines for being late for work force us to come on time.

Internal – we WANT to do something, regardless of the opinions and actions of others. For example, we stay late at work because we want to finish an interesting project. We are going to a meeting with friends, because we missed you.

How to find your motivation?

  • Break a large goal into several small ones
    When we see a big goal in front of us, we don’t immediately know what to grab and how to approach it.
    For example, the goal is “To buy an apartment”. And it is immediately unclear what to do with this goal.
    And let’s break this goal not a few small ones.
  • Break a large goal into several small ones. So you can

When we see a big goal in front of us, we don’t immediately know what to grab and how to approach it. For example, the goal is “To buy an apartment”. And it is immediately unclear what to do with this goal.


And let’s break this goal not a few small ones. To buy a car, you need:

  • Choose the car model you want
  • Find out how much it costs
  • Think about how you can earn this money. We need to calculate all the options.
  • Get rights.


It is already easier to look at such a goal and it no longer seems so abstract. And now we can break down each item into its smaller goals.
For example, write how you will earn money for a car:

  • Start taking a course to master a new profession
  • Take customers to start earning now
  • Every month or every week you will save N amount, etc.


Make yourself a list of tasks for the day, week, month. Write down everything by time and dates. During this article, I have already prepared for you lessons on time management and useful checklists.
