    No judgement made here

    Just to explain the poll with my own thoughts:

    Money - the motivation of wealth; hope that one day you shall have a lot of money to spend on whatever you want.

    Fear of failure - you don't want to let yourself or others down, perhaps your family..

    Personal praise - you thrive off of being told that you're doing well, it motivates you to do even better next time.

    Accomplishment - you want to look back one day and see all of the good things that you achieved in your life.

    Survival - you simply want to do well to be able to survive (I realise this one is a bit of a given but it basically means that you want to do well enough to make ends meet.)

    Religion - you are inspired to do well because of religious means

    Survival, pretty much. I plan on doing much though, so accomplishment takes second place!

    The fact that I have a chance at life, when others are killed for nothing and are suffering, and at accomplishment.

    A career, a comfortable & happy life, the fear of being useless and not doing anything that justifies my existence on this planet. The last thing I want to be is just a sloth - someone who's life, had it existed or not, would result in the same outcome for the world.

    Money and accomplishment. Also the fact that I don't want to disrespect the donor of my transplanted organ by living monotonously.

    I guess the possibility of having a good future, and making my parents happy/proud of me. Survival. Maybe even religion?
