I believe humans always need that internal motivation to do something. That little voice that guides us through certain paths. So yes, part of human actions comes from our deep inner reflection.
I hope this helps answer your question :)

I believe that motivation comes from within but inspiration comes from the outside world. Anything you see can inspire you to do something but you cannot confuse inspiration with motivation the actual need or want to do something. :)

The opposite of motivation is procrastination; both of which can be influenced from the external world, but only come into being when we choose to allow the emotion to flower.

External influences, but internal decisions.

@alipeli10, I agree with you. Inspiration comes from what you experience and see daily, and that motivates you internally to do something.
