When you know how to push your buttons you can motivate yourself to move mountains. Know the language that turns you on. Know what motivates you. Know what makes you happy. Know what makes you laugh. Know what makes you feel good. Know what makes you sad and discourages you. What bores you? What excites you? What do you need? What do you want? If you know yourself you can let other people know who you are. Know what you stand for and what your values are. When you know yourself then you can work with other people better.
