The link between emotion and motivation was talked about in chapter two. Descartes found that “emotions are an internal source of motivation that push humans into action toward a specific aim.” This video, I feel, portrays some of what was talked about very well. We were given a number of examples of how some of the most famous icons throughout history were put down and told that they were not good enough. I’m sure the emotions that were felt were anger, sadness, the feeling of inferiority, and maybe even hate. Through these emotions, they were driven to prove to themselves and the ones who did not believe in them that they were good enough, and would be considered by some, the best. The negative words of those who were supposed to encourage motivated them to do the unexpected.
