Belief is not the way to succeed. Practice is the way. Here are some proven ways to motivate. Try them out. See what you get. Examine your results. That's what will get you what you really want: motivated people. Most people we run into do what doesn't work, because most people try to motivate others by downloading their own anxiety onto them. The first step in motivating is for you, if you're the leader wanting the motivation, to realize that "if there's a problem, I'm the problem." Once you truly get that, then you can use these ideas.
