Therefore, the presence of an individual produces positive reinforcement as they have a more attractive appeal. This theory also suggests that we are attracted to people if we meet them whilst we’re in a good mood, an example being at a party.

Our level of motivation can also be determined by how long we stick at something and what we are willing to sacrifice for success. Motivation comes in two forms: 1. Intrinsic motivation comes from our own inner drive • We may play for fun • For the satisfaction of performing well • For the pride in winning or the enjoyment • To improve your game 2. Extrinsic motivation comes from rewards and outside pressures • Playing to win trophies • To please others • To earn money/ sponsorship • To be famous Motivation can be used in training to help an athlete train hard and perform well in games, for example in football managers may use extrinsic targets and say to strikers for every goal they score they get an extra £1000 bonus. Also in athletics coaches may set smart targets and when achieved the athlete gets the satisfaction of performing well.
