The way that people are motivated can differ greatly from person to person. What can serve as a strong motivation at one point in a someone’s life is subject to change as they grow older. Experiences change them.

In psychological terms, motivation is the drive behind every one of our decisions and behaviors. There are also two different types of motivation: extrinsic and intrinsic. Extrinsic motivation is when things are done in order to gain rewards or avoid punishment. Intrinsic motivation is when behavior arises from enjoyment in the task itself, from which satisfaction is gained. Both of these types of motivation can stem from negative experiences.

As a successful motivational speaker, Dean Kosage has helped people understand what motivates them. So many of us are caught up in the daily grind that we fail to take a moment to realize we are receiving little satisfaction from our life’s course. Both extrinsic and intrinsic motivation needs to be applied in order to remove oneself out of this mere survival way of thinking and start enjoying life. Dean Kosage’s Lifestream Blog goes into further details, but his objective is to motivate others by taking control over their lives and bring about positive change by entering into what he calls ‘success mode’. He has been commended by Cambridge Who’s Who for Excellence in Motivational Speaking, and for otherwise helping people find their path to success.

Success can be defined in a variety of ways, and means something different to each individual. This aside, it is safe to say that many have trouble swinging back from setbacks in life. Personal debt is high, as is divorce, with the debilitating effect both these have on personal and professional success in the long term. Drive and perseverance is necessary in order to generate personal growth and extract oneself out of any slump.

People are becoming increasingly aware of their self worth and the possibilities out there for anyone who wishes to break free from routine and find a deeper meaning in their endeavors. Dean Kosage, channeling creativity through business, has cultivated a fanbase of thousands from around the world who look to him as a source of inspiration.
