It is important to understand motivation because motivation is what drives us to be the people that we are. Right now, having a career is what motivates me. I want to complete my bachelors with a GPA that will get me into a graduate program, that will conclude with me having the career that I want. Yet, to achieve these things I am also motivated to stay healthy, have a well balanced diet and exceed at my current job. Without these things I would not be able to achieve my main goal. Which this class helped to to understand that there were more motivating factors in my life other then school.
This class taught me a lot about different motivators. Motivators that I had not originally ever thought about as something that made me motivated. For example, I never thought about the material in chapter 5, about thirst, hunger, and eating. I never really thought of hunger pain's being a motivator to eat, or being full as a motivator to stop eating. I had only thought of hunger in terms of natural instinct. I added a video from Epic Meal Time, I felt this related because these men are motivated by their love of food to create ridiculous concoctions on a weekly basis.
