Teaching self motivation?

My family is trying to teach my younger brother (he's about 14) to take initiative and be self-motivated (in all aspects of his life, not just in education). However, we're in uncharted waters here, and doing some research isn't helping. I've found tons of sources to teach yourself self-motivation and initiative, but not anything useful in terms of teaching others those same skills, especially at the teenage years. Any ideas? (resources and/or strategies would be greatly appreciated)
