The engaging activity effectively demonstrated the different types of motivation and showed which ones prove to be most practical. By definition, intrinsic motivation comes from within us when we want to be better (to have better strokes, shots, kicks) than we were last time. External motivation comes from the outside when we desire to be better than someone else and want to beat them/beat their record. It turns out that both motivation sources are important, but it is key to rely on intrinsic motivation as external motivation tends to wane when the opponent is much better or way worse, causing your performance to alter.
Overall, all members of the group greatly enjoyed the short experience at one of the best sport academies in the world. The Huskies learned some important and applicable information about leadership, vision, and mental training, despite the fact that there is much more to learn! Everyone is sad to leave the warm coast of Florida, but at the same time excited for the well deserved spring break.
