What motivates you at work?
Please avoid saying that money, perk, bonus, post etc. motivates you. Although these are galvanizing materials, but don't quote them.
You can just say that you believe in self motivation and any tangible motivations are short lived and temporary. You keep your spark button on for each work handed.

Cite your previous matching role if any, and elaborate your role. Don't forget to quote about the work that gained you accolades and try to convince that you would be proved handy if entrusted.
If the new role is alien to you, simple say that you are willing to take up challenge.
