    any and everything.. jut take a look out the window, that should be motivating & inspiring enough...

    rain, freshens everything around us, cleaning the dirt away, creating soemthing new.

    sun, brightens the colours inspiring us to breathe in the freshness of just being alive,
    wind, can be cooling on a hot day, livening the spirit to try something new.

    earth, planting our feet firmly so we stay grounded enough to try everything we were put here to do.

    breathe, walk, run, play, sleep, work, write, love...

    without motivation we are nothing.

    My lovely family can motivate me to do everything the best.

    It depends a lot on what it is I am doing.  I know in certain circumstances, the well being of my children motivate me to do my best.  But overall, wanting to make it to Heaven and have God pleased with me is what drives me.  I like everyone else fall short but I think about the problems I have had in life and I have come to the conclusion that God is the only answer.  I don't want to sound religious but it has been a rough journey for me and if it wasn't for "faith", I'm sure I'd be lost.

    The irrepressible perception that I am not meant for this earth much longer.

    I have to make a mark somehow. I have to produce something of quality that will last.

    I have to try everyday because I don't know which thing will be the one that lasts.

    Some Icon; within my own mind at least that will bear testament that I existed.

    All things considered, I would have to say that it is my sense of self.  I set the bar for how I perform in most cases and in most cases, I set that bar higher than those around me would expect. Sometimes I make it too difficult for myself to attain the goal but for the most part my expectation means as much to me as the attainment of the goal.  I, better than anyone else, know what I am capable of achieving.  I guess in that sense I am my own worst critic but then life has worked out fairly well for me so maybe that is not all bad.  WB
