Motivating Yourself to Action

How do you motivate yourself or others into action?  There is a secret ingredient and here is what it looks like.  Some time ago, a rich cosmetic manufacturer retired.  His products were fabulously successful.  His friends hounded him for the secret of the cosmetic’s success.  He finally told them that in addition to the formulas he used he never promised that they would make a woman beautiful, but he always gave her hope.  Hope is the missing ingredient in the formula of success.  It is the desire along with the belief that the goal is obtainable coupled with the expectation of reaching it.  It is what transforms vision into action.
