Daily Quotations: http://www.kevinfitzmaurice.com/quote_fitzmaurice.htm
Motivation exists to either avoid some negative or to obtain some positive.
Motivation is not caused, created, or instilled by experiencing some negative or positive or some punishment or reward.
Motivation is a conscious choice to repeat or find some positive reward or to avoid or escape some negative punishment.
Motivation arises to seek a reward, not to seek the action associated or paired with the reward, because motivation is about arriving, not the journey to arrive.
Motivation arises to avoid a punishment, not to avoid the action associated or paired with the punishment, because motivation is about consequences, not processes.
