    What is the thing that drives you?

    Passion. It is what pumps iron into my blood, but that passion more often than not gets me in-trouble. My blood starts to boil, and my mind is explosive.

    Passion, though, is what's keeping me alive. Passion therefore drives me.

      Passion! Most certainly, this is important for me too! Like I said further up the page though - I think it is important for passion to have direction. Perhaps passion for a goal or an ideal, or several of either is best? What is your biggest passion?

      My biggest passion, actually, is activism, as this world could be 10x better if we would just be tolerant towards each other. Most people think that those who are simply different from them are going to "Hell". My other passion, writing.

    Passion drives my decisions and paths I take.My love of freedom is what drives me to protect it.

      Passion is an important thing to cultivate in one's life for sure! It is important to have direction though... undirected passion is useless. It must always be passion FOR something.

    Nothing drives me,
    Yet, I drive it,
    my better half drives it,
    our childen drive it,
    and rest assured because our children drive it,
    I pay dearly for their priviledge to drive it!

    Challenging the status quo drives me. That which is true and right should stand.
    However, there are many ideas and statements that should be challenged and updated, or simply shown as untrue or wrong.

      I agree with this sentiment wholeheartedly! Righting wrongs and celebrating positive change is certainly a driving force in my own life!

    The people I love, a strong ambition to succeed and do good things, a passion for life, and never accepting failure as an option.

      The ones we love are often a great driving force in our lives aren't they? You are so right!

    My dream for success in this life and in the hereafter.

      Great answer - having a dream or a goal is so important.

    The number one thing that drives me is when someone questions my ability to do something.  That is what makes me strive for bigger and better things.

      So you are saying that you need to prove yourself? Or simply that you see the accusations of naysayers as a challenge to be met?

    The desire to have a better life. I accept the idea of having setbacks, but I do everything possible to take every situation and make the best of it. You have to fight in order to win

      That is a great aspiration to have! So many people convince themselves that they can't improve their lot... well here's the news bulletin: You can become whatever you set your mind to becoming.

    Bad decisions, I just want to make always the right ones but sometimes it's impossible. Mind you it gives me an alternative plan.

      Bad decisions drive you? That seems somewhat negative... Do you mean that the desire to make the right choice always, is what drives you?

    Double Gloucester cheese... downhill.
    No, seriously, I've set myself the task of completing a series of nine (and it might become ten) books in the 'RAVENFEAST' series, and I've found these Hubpages a help in developing my writing. By writing and commenting here I'm organising myself and my time.
    Nearly halfway there, and about two thirds of the way through book four - 'BETRAYED' - I've got 'an angle' on writing style, selecting and using words rather than just falling back on words I use in everyday life. That concentrates the mind wonderfully as the phrase goes, a form of self-propulsion.
    Aside from that there is my railway modelling, working on kits and re-working proprietary models, painting, liverying, weathering etc. I split my time during the day and weekends between what I want to do and what I have to do. At weekends I take a rest from writing.

      Goals are an excellent motivator aren't they? I have set myself a number of goals over the past few months. I've had to set my writing goals asside for a brief period unfortunately - Just moved house and I'm getting married on April 19th smile

      Congrats on the forthcoming nuptials, and keep up the goals (although the patter of small feet might interfere with them at some time in the not-too-distant future), and moving house is a definite block on creativeness! Keep on truckin', man!.
