    So we are all on here for a reason.. we want to succeed at whatever it is we want to do, be it business, life or your 9-5 job.. but what is it that inspires you? What gives you the drive to succeed?

    Hi - My driving factor is to offer myself and my folks a lavish (or atleast a upper middle class) lifestyle. We are not poor and I dont strive to be rich but I want a very comfortable living. I have,somewhat, succeeded in that and I am truly happy with what I do and earn now :)

    Very interesting question Lelah, and one that I believe giving some thought to is important for our self motivation. Like simplyjo, I've always been inspired to work hard to create a better lifestyle with more opportunities for myself and my family. My primary inspiration comes from a desire for freedom, as I believe that achieving financial success will bring freedom with it.

    My wife is definitely the driving factor in my life. Plus the fact that I have a baby on the way is driving me to work even harder.

    My family inspires me to do online work. My father's salary isn't much on some months there are emergencies so my earnings kinda make as an emergency fund for us.

    Another thing that inspires me are my toys. Whenever I'm tired and look at them, I feel happy and my tiredness comes off. /m/I work hard so that some of my extra earnings will go to my passion which is toy collecting.

    Vision leads the way

    My drive is fueled by an image in my mind. Only in this pursuit do I find happiness.

    wow that's a simple question but tough to answer. i have only few of them and most are those are my number one critics. i always believe to what they say because all of them seem to be near to the facts. i make it sure that they can have nothing to say after i have proven myself to them.

    My Family inspires me to do my best in everything I do.

    Sometimes, my dream of going places also make me want to do my best, I would love to travel the world and learn different things that different people, places and experiences can give me.

    I know that my dream is really far from turning into reality, but I'm sure one day will come when I can finally reach for that dream star. :)

    It's great to have people like that, who can advise, inspire and motivate you.

    Thanks for sharing that with us mggc. What's stopping you from travelling the world?

    What country do you live in?

    I want to achieve my goals for the future. I even have a vision board which I glance at every night before I go to sleep so I am motivated at work everyday.

    Hi

    My main goal at succeeding is to break the poverty cycle on my side of the family so the generations after me will have more options and a little more wealth.

    Thanks
    Have a nice time ahead
