What motivates you?

Motivation takes the form of many things: quest for wealth, fame, etc. So my question to you is what is/are your personal motivator(s)?

          Oct 13 2012: hum I don't think on death as well, it is an unknown factor. and I don't think about it til it is here. so for right now I think of all the living to do, I don't want to say that I never tried to do something. there are just too many things to do. and I don't want to sit on the couch and watch tv all day! I want to taste it feel it and share the greatness of what can be. life is not over til it is over. and if we have thought at that time, I think I will have wonderful thoughts of the life I had.
