I am not a competitive person which I think can play a big role in someone's motivation.
My motivation comes from anxiousness about where I could be if I fail to accomplish a certain task or take action. Hang on…this sounds like I have a fear of failure, so perhaps I am competitive after all, there goes my second statement.
My motivation also comes from the confidence that I have in particular areas in my life, from positive past experiences.
This is a topic I have never really narrowed down, I’ve just been educated.
