The most powerful motivator is self-interest.
It is the bridle and the spur that make a good horse.
Motivation is simple. You eliminate those who are not motivated.
It is in human nature to relax, when not compelled by personal advantage or disadvantage.
No one does anything from a single motive.
If you do not wish a man to do a thing, you had better get him to talk about it; for the more men talk, the more likely they are to do nothing else.
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.
