3 Components Of Motivation


Motivation is derived from a Latin word 'movere'. It is a process that starts with the physiological or psychological deficiency or need that activates a behavior or drive that is aimed at a goal or incentive.

There are 3 components of motivation:

1) Needs: They are created when there is a physiological and psychological deprivation.

2) Drive: also called a 'Motive', this is created by a deficiency with direction.

3) Incentives or Goal: Anything that elivates a need and reduces a drive is termed as incentive.
