I think itโ€™s true that positive rewards are a better motivation for most people, rather than negative ones. However, if you need someone to do something, and suitable rewards cannot encourage them to act, you sometimes need to highlight negative or even threatening outcomes.

English Idioms That Are Too Big For Their Boots Ep 349

I was talking to a British colleague of mine about Adept English recently and mentioned that one of our English lessons will be on English idioms.

The English use idioms all the time!
