Although, I Know that this is an IM forum, so most of the members over here would have money as their top most priority. However, I am looking for some diverse views and answers. Why do you wake every morning or spend sleepless nights slogging your ass to meet the deadlines of your projects or your client's project? What is that thing apart from $$$$, which motivates or instigates to work harder? Let me help you with some options: Do you want a Beautiful and Luxurious home? Do you simply want a comfortable life post retirement? Do you want to give your parents a comfortable and happy life? Do you want to help the needy or deprived? I hope these options would have cleared my question. Personally speaking, my driving force is to be an inspiration for people around me. I want people to look up to me and motivated by my actions. Apart from this, I also want to become an immensely successful entrepreneur because there is a general misconception in my family that online income can't be trusted for livelihood. What's your driving force?
