Misunderstandings About Motivation

Motivation is found to be hard by many people but I would like to put across that:
1. Motivation can be done even without financial benefits. Take an example of a thank you from your boss, a pat on the back, a recognition letter, a hand shake, and many more. All those mentioned above don't require any penny to be spent.
2. Motivation should not necessarily come from the boss only. I would like to point out that motivation can also come from peers among each other and even from subordinates to their bosses.
3. Lastly we should not forget that motivation is the way you influence your colleagues to work happy in a happy environment. That only "thing" that keeps them smiling everyday at work.
Any other misconceptions around motivations? Please add them!
