"Boss-teachers and administrators constantly lament that students are not motivated, but what they are actually saying is that they do not know how to persuade students to work. And as long as they continue to believe in coercion, they never will.

When it comes to understanding motivation, boss-managers are looking for something that does not exist. But they keep looking because they, like almost everyone else, accept the external control theory.

According to this theory, our behavior is almost always motivated by a stimulus that exists outside of ourselves."
