Motivation: Autonomy, Mastery & Purpose

Here is an interesting video on motivation. The three keys to motivating people are, according to the video 1)autonomy 2)mastery 3) purpose, and not monetary rewards.

On a more serious note, I believe that these three elements are important motivators, especially when it comes to language learning.
