If I asked you what your biggest motivation is, what would they say? Would you say it's to be successful, to have loving relationships, to make a difference in the world, or to be wealthy? Maybe it's all of the above.

For most goals this works out okay. If I want to achieve good grades in school, improve my sales, get more clients, etc. the harder I work the better my results will probably be.
