You are extrinsically motivated when you act or accomplish something for external rewards such as fame, money, praise, and grades.

Extrinsic motivation comes from external situations, such as when you want to receive praise, study for a test, or exercise because you don’t want to look silly or out of shape in front of others.

There’s a big difference between being interested in success and being committed to succeed.

One is wishful thinking and the other is taking responsibility.

When you just want to succeed, you’ll find excuses to give up. You may blame your boss, your education, your family, and so on.

When you are committed, you’ll take a hundred percent responsibility and work for your dreams with absolute dedication.
