The biggest difference between motivation and dedication is ACTION. Motivation is the initiative to start a task. It includes a person’s reasons and desires for engaging in a particular behavior to achieve a goal. Dedication goes beyond a mere desire. It is a person’s commitment to following through with behaviors and actions that will lead to the accomplishment of that goal. In other words, motivation does not require action because it is purely an inner desire. Dedication, on the other hand, is both an internal wish as well as physical action and hard work.
Sometimes Motivation grows into Dedication. Sometimes not. Regardless:

Very troubling that the song “Monster Mash” isn’t the Monster Mash — it’s a song about the Monster Mash, which is not itself heard on the track, and is fundamentally unknowable to us.
Be at ease. The possibility exists for us to hear the Monster-Mash-Universe-Monster-Mash-Song. Although we never listen to it sung, we can listen to it at some point. Here is why:
