Theories on Motivation
Behaviours are motivated by instinct. Psychologists such as Sigmund Freud have proposed a number of basic human drives that motivate our behaviour.
Drives and Needs
We are motivated to fulfill our biological needs
People are motivated to engage in behaviours that maintain a level of arousal. (arousal meaning excitement and interest)

We are motivated based on external rewards.
We have cognitive reasons to perform actions. Illustrated in Abraham Maslow’s hierarchy of needs. Once basic biological and emotional needs have been met, the primary motivator is the need for self-actualization, the desire to fulfill one's potential.
"Motivation alone is not enough. If you have an idiot and you motivate him, now you have a motivated idiot." -- Jim Rohn.

Philosophers on Motivation
