First, what is motivation and can you motivate people? Can you motivate employees through motivational speeches? There is so much theory on motivation but what really works in the real world?

Motivation is the reason for acting a certain way. It’s the desire to do something for a desired outcome.

Goals motivate us as does fear and pain, along with a whole host of reasons for doing anything. How can knowing this information be used to motivate people?

Just add salt….

There is an old saying that states “You can lead a horse to water but you can’t make him drink.” Actually this isn’t true; you need to make him thirsty.

You can work him, you can add salt to his feed or you can do both. Once he’s thirsty, he’ll drink!

If you want to motivate people, add salt! Your salt should be whatever motivates them. Is it money, cars and houses? Is it recognition and peer approval? Maybe it’s both!

Your job is to find out what motivates those around you and work with them to help them reach their goals. By doing so, they will inadvertently help you reach your goals.

You were born a winner and a champion; get motivated to live the life you deserve now!
