Motive and motivation are psychological concepts representing factors that stimulate a person to be or become active; they elicit, maintain, and direct specific behavior toward a particular goal. Motives may be inherent or acquired; primary or secondary; and biological, social, or personal.
An important factor in motivation is self-motivation, i.e., a drive directing us toward a goal or an inner drive for achieving, developing, and moving forward. Self-motivation is affected by self-confidence, self-efficiency, positive thinking about the present and future, focus, clear goals, and motivating environment.
