Motivation: Money & Yellow Ribbon!


“We can not pay people to do their best, nor can we order them to excel.” Unknown

“Money motivates neither the best people, nor the best in people. It can move the body and influence the mind, but it cannot touch the heart or move the spirit; that is reserved for belief, principle and morality. As Napoleon observed, “No amount of money will induce someone to lay down their lives, but they will gladly do so for a bit of yellow ribbon.”  (BPI Consulting, 2012).
