Motivation is the underlying process that initiates, directs and sustains behavior in order to satisfy physiological and psychological needs or wants. Motivation determines the direction, intensity of behavior/effort and helps in sustaining that direction and intensity over time.

Motivation is an integral element in becoming successful in any undertaking. Motivation has also been defined as a desire or need which directs and energizes behavior that is oriented towards a goal.

Reinforcement theory of motivation was proposed by BF Skinner and his associates. It states that individual’s behavior is a function of its consequences. It is based on “law of effect”, that is, individual’s behavior with positive consequences tends to be repeated, but individual’s behavior with negative consequences tends not to be repeated.
