Motivation is the most important part of academic success. It involves internal and external factors that give desire and energy in people to be continually interested and committed to a job, role, or subject or to make an effort to attain a goal. This is important in almost every aspect of human behavior. When you make a decision, your choice is influenced by your motivation. Motivation is an internal process that makes a person move toward a goal, which makes it useful for students. Motivation, similar to intelligence, cannot be directly observed. Motivation can only be deduced by noting a person’s behavior. As students, being motivated is useful to become active in class and have a positive mind in the community and also in school.
