Learning and then improving motivation is easier said than done. If motivation can be learned, everyone in the world will be at the top of the pyramid that is stood on its pointed tip.
In life one can have brains, skills, experience, etc. but these alone will get one nowhere without motivation. How often have we seen brilliant people with the highest IQ and the highest academic scores not living up to expectations in real life? Most of them ended up in academia instead of being global movers, shakers, and shapers.
One example of badminton motivation is to find a national player who is prepared to use his own money to improve instead of being driven by "what is there for me?" Motivation and passion come together. Why can't the rejects pay their own way?

Agree with you motivation is the driving force behind success.Especially in sales,average IQ with highest motivation proven to be more successful than highest IQ with average motivation(that's why they don't bother about paper qualifications).
But in badminton or any sports, natural talent is a prerequisite to go far.So average BQ(badminton quotient) with highest motivation may not be more successful than highest BQ with average motivation.That's why TH still can be king in some tournaments.But how nice it would be if the one with the highest BQ maximises his motivation and plan out and execute his training schedule 110%.Let's see whether TH will deliver.He's the ideal specimen.

agree...but the way i see it badminton also related to a player form , just like football just like what happen to Man U ,before the arrival of Mourinho the're kings in England but after Mourinho is with Chelsea they seems like losing direction...

Hafiz and Beng Hong given lifeline
From the New Straits Times, the same story was reported the next day. Rashid Sidek said "We still have to depend on Hafiz and Beng Hong for now as the quality of our back-up players is very low."

Hafiz and Beng Hong given lifeline
NATIONAL players Hafiz Hashim and Kuan Beng Hong have survived the chop not because they have been showing signs of vast improvement but solely because the elite back-up shuttlers have stagnated. Full Story

Lee Chong Wei is one MAS MS player to have both high BQ and motivation
pjswift ... Totally agree. Currently, Lee Chong Wei is one player to have both higher BQ and motivation.
IMHO, Hafiz has high BQ too, but his motivation is lacking. And for Beng Hong, he is just too careless at matches. Sometimes, it is unbelievable that he could give away so many points to his opponents from his unforced errors.

yea...now that you mention it Kuan BH sometimes is really lacking concertation which results to unforce errors the more his rival pick up points , the more he get nervous , he needs to be more relax & concerntere on his game.. as for Hafiz H he just lack confidence

Kuan Beng Hong hopes to play until 2010
Even now (03-Oct-2009), Muhammad Hafiz Hashim and Kuan Beng Hong are still at the top in the Malaysian Singles events.
And Kuan Beng Hong said:
“I cannot leave the national team when the youngsters are not ready to take over. The seniors’ domination in the National Circuit shows that the back-up shuttlers still have some catching-up to do”.
“I can still provide quality sparring for my team-mates. I hope to play for another year, and then I will make up my mind whether to continue or give up.”

I was curioused where those young players from states, from badminton clubs in the country......i am sure there must be lots more youngsters who have talents and not able to study in BJSS out there.....
The system seems not encourage these players to be in National team...just wasted those non-BJSS talents.
