Do you agree that motivation comes from within and not from competing against someone?
If you would lose your passion for something do you think you could still be motivated to still do that task?
Here’s what I think. I always feel more accomplished when I race against myself and not against someone. Having another person helps to motivate me, but I ultimately answer to myself.
As for the second question I think you can still be motivate to do the task. I do not think you will do it as well or with as much enthusiasm, but I do believe you can get it accomplished.
