What motivates you?

Take away all the bills, the mortgage payments, the kids college funds etc.

I want to know what compells us to drive forward each day. What inspires us to get out of bed in the morning and do what we do?

What internal thing do some of us have that others do not. Why do some succeed where others fail, and why do some of those who fail keep trying until they succeed. What compels each of us to achieve dreams and face fears while others accept mediocrity and fate as the status quo?
