Take a ride through the ghetto and tell yourself, if I don't keep going, I could end up living here!

The numerous porn sites on the web i have paid to see yet.
I have to work and cut as many lawns as possible so i can see the porn.

and my dad is living with me, and i don't want to live with my kids, they don't like me. I used to make them wash the
driveway when there friends were playing

Usually what motivates me is "I have no choice"

If I don't do the basics, I'll lose the basics. As much as I sometimes detest the littlest things such as rolling out of bed or feeling overwhelmed by something... I know that it will pass, that I will do what needs to be done and all will be fine.

Everything is temporary.

Failure.

Failure keeps me motivated more than anything.

I don't want to fail. At anything. From the smallest of things to the very big, important, life-changing things. The fear of failure makes me do whatever I HAVE to do to realize whatever goal it is I'm striving for. Sounds hoakey, but it's true. Don't get me wrong I'm no genius who's got it all and can tell you how for $19.95. But as far as I'm concerned I DO have it all. And I guess as long as you set realistic goals, you CAN achieve them.

Failure motivates me because I don't want friends or family talking behind my back about how he "could have" done this or that. My motivation is that I wanna be the one they say, "Wow, I can't believe he actually...".

But then again with my crazy-a$$ family, it's not as hard to accomplish as you might think!!

I think that is what keeps me going too. Sometimes I worry my expectations are too high though!!!

Yep. WAY too high for me too. But that almost makes it better. You may be a little dissapointed you didn't reach the goal you set. But to others, they're like "WOW, that's great you did this or that". The bottom line is you set the bar so high for your self that it's pretty unreachable in the real-world-sense, but to others who aren't as motivated, the level you did reach is INCREDIBELY high. It keeps you going, even though you kinda dissapointed your self at first. Keeps you grounded, knowing that you're human, but you still were able to reach a goal many can't.

I think


Makes sense though. Sorry to get so deep.

Cool. This made me realize what it is that drives me for the most part. Forget the money, forget the "prestige" of anything. The core of what drives you... That's what a lot of people don't tap into...

I dunno.


Just ramblings. Thanks for the thread though, I kinda now realize what makes me push forward each day. Besides the obvious reasons.

Wanting to basically be retired before I hit the big 40 keeps me motivated.
Also what Wiz, Campari, and Pauligan said.
