Extrinsic Motivation

Some motivation can be outside or extrinsic to an individual: rewards, praise, recognition, payment are all extrinsic. They are powerful motivators. But they have the drawback of not being owned or controlled by the individual. If ones builds ones identity and makes career choices based on extrinsic motivation, over time one may eventually find oneself in a career cul-de-sac, performing work one doesn’t enjoy and not having the options to change.
