motivational quotes about success
Real motivation comes from within and has to come from every person. External motivation like pay rises, bonuses and promotions will not work as long as it remains an external motivation. So how do you create this real inner motivation. Here are 3 great ways that work.

1. Responsibility

By giving someone responsibility you do much more than giving them a sense of self importance. You actually display trust in them and when someone feels trusted it makes them want to respond to that trust.
