Moyes was speaking at a coaching conference in New York when he discussed the principles behind his coaching philosophy after an 11 years at the helm of Everton.
The Scot will officially take over at Manchester United on 1 July, where he will seek to live up to Sir Alex Ferguson's legacy. He outlined his plans as a manager - starting from earning the players' respect to continuing to put trust into the youth system at United.
"You have to earn your stars when dealing with players," said Moyes.
"It's up to you to show what you've got.
"If you want to work for me you need to be able to work seven days a week. I need to know my staff will give me that effort.
"Discipline has to come from within for players. And I'm a great believer in giving young players opportunities.
"Developing players mentally is very important, but it needs to fit with what the players want."
Moyes pointed out that the transfer window will make or break a club.
"You have to keep your eye on what the industry is doing - what's new," Moyes added.
"And your recruiting as a manager can determine whether you keep your job.
"Everton needed a new direction when I came in and, as a coach, you have to find ways you can keep developing.
Ferguson was given full control of the footballing decisions at the club, and Moyes revealed that he will be seeking to wield the same kind of authority at Old Trafford.
"It's a great honour to be appointed at Manchester United," said Moyes.
"[But] don't assume your board of directors always have the answers. You need to influence [as a manager or coach]."
