the act of deciding definitely and firmly (MWD)
the condition of being motivated (MWD)
something (such as a need or desire) that causes a person to act (MWD)
Are they the same thing? Two sides of the same coin?
Some examples of situations I can't differentiate between:
- The want/desire to win a competition.
- The want/desire to achieve a task or goal.
How do you differentiate between motivation and determination to have or win something? It is very hard to describe the feelings in words. How does it feel when you are motivated or determined?
