Employee motivation seems easy and simple. However, it is not.
It is a complex phenomenon. Still, it goes a long way in affecting the success of an organization.
Employees having motivation towards their work can do wonders for their employer company. Such employees are highly engaged and productive and thus become exemplary in this regard.
The employees with little to no motivation prove to be a liability. Instead of taking a company forward, they make the company lag behind others.
Most often than not, employees do not have the desired level of motivation. Therefore, organizations use employee motivation and recognition tools, and BRAVO! is a perfect example.
That said, videos are also a great help in becoming an expert on employee motivation. For that reason, this article brings you seven such videos from the internet.
This video is from the New York Times bestselling author, Brendon Buchard. He also happens to be a motivational speaker.
This video discusses the difference between the mindset of successful and unsuccessful people.
Brendon also authored a book with the name The Charge that suggests revising the hierarchy of human needs.
The quotes from this video that will inspire you the most:
“Success has been figured out – it’s a mindset game.”
“Successful people say ‘I want to do that, but I don’t know how to do that, but instead of stopping they say ‘then my job is to go learn that. They take their current limitation and they put it on their agenda as a job to do”.
Team building can give tough times to leaders and managers. Nevertheless, this TED talk by Dan Pink is a great help for motivation on building great teams.
The speaker in this video challenges the conventional perceptions about the elements that motivate people. He also urges to change these perceptions as well.
The quotes from the video that will inspire you the most:
“There is a mismatch between what science knows and what business does.”
“That new operating system for our businesses revolves around three elements: Autonomy, Mastery, and Purpose.”
Les Brown is a motivational speaker. And this video comprises a compilation of his sound bites.
The quotes from the video that we think will inspire you the most:
“A lot of people go to work every day miserable, and all they do is just talk about is how miserable they are. But they don’t do anything about it.”
“You’ve got to remind yourself that you’ve got powers within you, talents within you, that you haven’t even reached for yet.”
4) How Bad Do You Want It?
Everybody wants to become successful, but not everyone gets successful in becoming successful.
The reason: not everyone is willing to work hard, let alone working hard.
Success demands sacrifices. And it is the intensity of how much you want to achieve something that makes you go over the mile and make sacrifices.
This video discusses the same.
The quotes from the video that will inspire you the most:
“Most of you say you want to be successful, but you don’t want it bad. You just kind of want it. You don’t want it badder than you want to party, you don’t want it is as much as you want to be cool. Most of you don’t want success as much as you want to sleep.”
“If you’re going to be successful, you’ve got to be willing to give up sleep.”

This video is likely to motivate you and your employees.
The most inspiring quote from this video:
“Greatness is not this wonderful, esoteric, elusive that only the special among us will ever taste. It’s something that truly exists in all of us.”
6) How to Stay Focused
This video is yet another masterpiece from Brendon to motivate your employees.
In his former video, Brendon had discussed the key difference in the mindset of successful and unsuccessful people. However, in this video, he discusses the difference in the traits of the two.
The quotes in the video that will find highly inspiring:
“Make fewer decisions… the more decisions that we make, the more our brain becomes fatigued.”
“You must define your mission. You need to have a mission for what you’re going to do today. What happens is that most people show up and they go ‘ok, well I guess I’ll do some stuff, but they have no intention whatsoever so they end up doing too many things that mean nothing towards their mission.”
7) The Happiness Advantage
The Happiness Advantage is a highly influential video.
It influences by revealing that one’s intelligence quotient (IQ) does not determine their success. Instead, it is the ability to perceive stress as a challenge rather than a threat.
The following quotes from this video are likely to instill motivation:
“If happiness is on the opposite side of success, your brain never gets there.”
“We’re finding it’s not necessarily the reality that shapes us, but the lens through which your brain views the world that shapes your reality. And if we can change the lens, not only can we change your happiness, we can change every single educational and business outcome at the same time.”
“What we found is that only 25% of job successes are predicted by I.Q. 75% of job successes are predicted by your optimism levels, your social support, and your ability to see stress as a challenge instead of as a threat.”
You know that the prospect for your company to make progress is high if your employees have motivation for it.
If the employees are not motivated, a company will not be able to keep up with others. And it will eventually lag.
Keeping employees motivated is therefore inevitable.
