Stop Wishing, Start Doing
I believe we create our own motivation. One reason motivation is not intrinsic is because if we were all naturally motivated we would all be successful. I will admit that you have to be born with some motivation or else you won't be able to even create your own motivation. However, I believe that if you really want to be successful in whatever you are doing you have to create your own motivation. In short, to be successful we have to make our own motivation.
