200+Powerful Motivational Quotes for Success in Life

What is Motivation?

Motivation is the will or desire to do something due to a set of psychological forces or factors that compel you to act in the service of a goal. It is an essential part of human behavior in setting and accomplishing our goals. Psychologists define motivation as our overall readiness to achieve something. Human beings do things because of a variety of motivational factors that are a combination of psychological forces that urge them to take action.


It is one of the most integral factors behind human behavior, as it is closely related to attaching emotions to every action of a person. Its absence can lead to psychological barriers such as frustration, as people struggle to do something with full enthusiasm when they don’t feel motivated. All in all, motivation involves the desire to keep striving toward a goal, purpose, or meaning in professional or personal life.

Motivation is positive motivation in the real sense. An employee is positively motivated by providing positive incentives. Examples of positive motivation include promotions, praise, recognition, allowances, and perks.
