    Guys kindly give me some idea that helps you to be motivated to do things that you have to do even you don't have the passion to do that. I think your suggestions will help me.

    Money. Cold hard cash. :D And the thought of being without any. That's the simple truth. That's enough to keep me going.

    The ability to provide for myself and be financially independent, the ability to provide for family and to help worthy charities all motivate me to be the best I can be.

    My wife is my inspiration. She is my motivation and she is my strength.

    My motivation is my family and my collections.
    I basically started to do online jobs is because of my love for collectible toys. :D

    Yes Fergal. I generally spend $30-$40 each month on a single figure.

    Do you buy them as an investment or for the enjoyment of having them, GekiDan? It's incredible what collectibles can bring in the right markets.

    That was great answers. Thank you guys. I think it depends on us how to deal with situations and how we can motivate ourselves.

    Not really as an investment but rather as the enjoyment of having them.
    I have bought some other things which I sold 2x to 3x the original price I bought it because of rarity.

    This so so true. Be inspired and motivated on whatever you do. Because if you have this motivation and inspiration in yourself you are sure to complete any tasks/assignments or even on any situation you are taking. :)

    In addition to motivating yourself with ideas of success e.g. having the home/car/lifestyle you wish.

    You can also motivate yourself by thinking what will happen if you don't progress, if you don't become more successful.

    I am motivated primarily by achieving a higher quality of life and helping my family and loved ones.

    I am motivated by challenges, pushing myself beyond my comfort zone.
