I am positive that Michael Jordan’s source of success was intrinsic motivation because the definition states that this type of motivation “comes from within” and “relates to doing something for pure enjoyment”. in the video, he said that “I played the sport because I love it”. He seeks out challenges, was never afraid of failing, trained full-heartedly to overcome and surpass battles. According to another video, Michael Jordan said that he is successful because of the many many failures he had before. this type of personality is the “ideal characteristic of a champion”…Type 3.
