There are two types of motivation
This type of motivation is driven from within. It is where the performer wants to achieve something for their satisfaction. This is the most powerful type of motivation.
This is when the performer is motivated by external factors. The performer wants to do well in order to gain recognition, praise and applause from spectators or the performer may be motivated by wining a trophy or even money.
Having a goal to aim for is a good motivator.
Example – to perform a handstand with my legs straight at the next attempt.
