The most powerful motivator is self-interest.
It is the bridle and the spur that make a good horse.
There is only one way to get anybody to do anything. And that is by making the other person want to do it.
Instruction does much, but encouragement does everything.
Whatever touches the nerves of motive, whatever shifts man’s moral position, is mightier than steam, or calorie, or lightening.
The best morale exist when you never hear the word mentioned. When you hear a lot of talk about it, it’s usually lousy.
Who is sure of their own motives can in confidence advance or retreat.
Motivation is the art of getting people to do what you want them to do because they want to do it.
Some of us are like wheelbarrows, only useful when pushed and easily upset.
The inner thought coming from the heart represents the real motives and desires. These are the cause of action.
