    I would say I'm more motivated by success/achievement although money is an important aspect. I've read alot of success stories and profiles of entreprenuers and interestingly, quite alot of them state that they aren't motivated by money, rather they're motivated by a fear of failure.

    Richard Branson says that money is for making things happen, it's a means to an end and not an end in itself.

    No, not really. Just as long as I'm earning about 25 - 30k I'll be perfectly content thankyou. I want a job which will give me satisfaction, which is why I am planning to go into teaching. I can't think of anything better than seeing young minds flourish and facing the challenge of motivating disruptive and wayward students. I can't wait!

    Life is good.

    I've been thinking about this quite a lot. It used to be my ambition to get a successful job, make loads of money etc, but the more I think about it, the less it appeals to me. I think I would seriously be less happy with a lot of money.
