My motivation is from mt wife's nagging. She only want's whats best for us, so I if don't pull my weight then I'm letting the family down, abd she tells me about it. So when there is something that I should do and can't be bothered to do it, I just think of mt wife nagging me and do it. I'll only end up doing it anway, so I may as well make life easier

Motivation isn't coming from anything other than our minds. It doesn't come from external events or from other people, it comes from within us. That's how I see motivation.

My immediate family - husband and daughter as well as my extended family- my parents and siblings are my motivation in life. They are what makes me want to live longer.

I am motivated to work and live my life on earth because of my children. as much as [possible I want to see them finish their studies, marry and establish their own life. maybe I am ready to retire and die. When I was younger, I have no thought like this. But as I age my children motivates me to do more for them. I do not know why.

I do not really know what my motivation in life is. I am still trying to figure it out myself. All that I do know, is that I am working hard to make sure my husband and I both can retire some day and have our bills paid off so hopefully we can enjoy some part of life when the time comes.

Everyone has something that motivates their life. Some people can find the motivation that inspires and enriches their lives while others struggle to find the motivation at all. What we need is often right in front of us. We just have to have the courage to reach out for it.

I definately beleive that happiness brings motivation if im not happy then i dont feel any drive to do anything but if im happy things do seem so tough and the motivation comes easier without much effort and nagging.

I am motivated to live my life the way I do because at the end of everything, I want to see and face the Good Lord. I may be not good at some things but I try very hard to be good at most. I am motivated to live to love and serve!

If I were married, it would be easy to say that my motivation in life would be my family. However, I'm single, so I must say that my motivation is to achieve the life that I dream to have. In simple terms, it's that particular goal that drives me to work hard and improve myself. It may be a cliche, but 'We live only once', so why not make the most out of it.

My motivation in life would be mostly myself and my interests only. I am not here to let others manipulate me in any one direction or the other. I want to be as i am and how i am. Being myself i can do a lot more and i believe in myself so i can achieve in whatever i want to. My motivation is the success story which would come if i thrive for excellence. That and my parents desires. Those are the only motivations that steer me through life! Cheers!

hello raviteja...i think this first time you respond my discussion :)... i think it`s better for us to be ourself.. why we must change our personality and follow another personality.. many people try to change their personality and live like another but they can`t do it because it`s not their style

Fun and love. I love to do things and create in my life because its fun. As well I find fun in loving to do things that I find fun. The cycle just grows into happiness. To me, finding happiness in every moment is the purpose of life and when doing so, things just seem to fall into place.

I'm always motivated every time I remember the most difficult times I have had in my life. It might sound weird as I found it also weird. But what motivates me is that if I had surpassed those hardships that I've had before then I believe and I know that I could also surpass other challenges in life that awaits me. So every time I felt like losing hope I just tried to remember something that happened to me before and how I surpassed that.
