A little motivation can go a long way

I didn't know if I was going to make it... the finish line looked like it was moving away from me and my shoes felt like they were made from lead ... UNTIL ... I saw my family cheering me on.

I was suddenly running faster, not even thinking about the 20.8 kms I had just run. I crossed the finish line for the half marathon at the fastest pace I had run over the entire race.
It's amazing what can be achieved with a little bit of motivation.
You can use this effective tool with staff, customers and friends, to help them get what they desire, or to encourage them to do more of what you want.
Look for the 'good stuff', acknowledge it and you'll be amazed at what can be achieved - just with a few encouraging words.
