Sunday Intrinsic

Sunday Intrinsic

The word “intrinsic” means “being an extremely important and basic characteristic of a person or thing”, according to the Cambridge English Dictionary. Therefore, intrinsic motivation would be motivation that arises from your deepest being, so much so that it is a part of you.

What is your intrinsic motivation? It is helpful to define it, and make sure that the goals you are pursuing aren’t in conflict with it. It sounds crazy, but often dancers find out that they’d rather be drawing or acting or playing piano, or some other artistic pursuit. That being said, a dancer (or other artist) will almost always discover that their intrinsic motivation is art-related. It’s as though art chooses us, not the other way around. 

Take some time today and think about your intrinsic motivation. You’ll either be surprised, or reinforced. Happy Sunday!
