What Motivates You?

Do you know what motivates you to get out of bed in the morning? Do you just stay in bed, or do you get up to better yourself? Maybe help others? Or maybe you get up for the opportunity to earn money.

  1. I am motivated by Altruism
    It says:
    "No matter what, when it comes down to it you’d probably rather put a smile on someone else’s face to get a smile on yours. Of course you’re not going to say no to a great big raise or to the Person of the Year award (and you’re due for both, right?), you’d just rather accomplish great things that also help others out. The world definitely needs more caring souls just like you. Congratulations!"

    I feel like this is definitely why I get out of bed in the morning, I love making people happy, since it makes me happy. Especially animals! Which is why I am going to school, to become a veterinarian.

  2. I am also motivated by Altruism! I feel like this accurately describes my future goals considering I'm working toward becoming a teacher. I definitely enjoy helping others out on a regular basis!

  3. well two things motivate me the most,
    money and the chance to expand my social relations

  4. Thanks Farouk!
    Your recent article on Getting Over Someone was a great read! I do not have the problem personally right now, but I will be able to use it in the future and share it with a friend who recently has problems getting over another guy. Thanks so much! You stated some of the obvious that we don't want to tell ourselves is true when we are trying to get over someone, or are with someone.
