Come up with one word that defines "what drives you"?
Posted 9/17/13 , edited 9/17/13
At this moment in your life what are the batteries from which you charge yourself on a daily basis or even in life as a whole? what drives you? what motivates you to keep going...the definition in you heart of hearts which powers the "you" now and possibly forever?


try your best to describe it in one word, my word is "truth" you can also share why you chose such a word

Family. I am the eldest of 5 kids (plus an aunt that professionals have stated has the mental state of a 12 year old), my dad has a full-time job and my mom is a midwife with her own practice (meaning she has to leave in the middle of the night on a regular basis). I do most house-work and cooking for the family.

I am of the mindset that family is your base. When you come into the world, you start on family and become your own person off of it. If at any point you took out family, however, the whole thing falls apart.

I may just be old school, but that is what drives me.

For me: Stories.

I'm the type who's always milling stuff around in my head. I spend a good portion of my free time thinking about philosophy, examining my own thought patterns, or coming up with neat ideas pertaining to my interests. Mostly though, I'm a lifelong fiction nerd. A good story, to me, is the best thing in the world, and all my career plans involve working with stories, whether it be teaching literature, editing, or writing my own fiction. I never feel more energized that when I've just finished reading, watching, or playing through a good story. I love watching characters interact and drawing my own conclusions about their personalities and motivations, I love trying to wrap my head around the plot and whatever zany supernatural or science-fiction elements it may include, I love keeping a watchful eye on the presentation and being able to appreciate the stylistic flourishes that denote a savvy creator, and I love seeing how the themes that the writer wants to explore are presented, and turning them over in my head as the story progress and gives me even more to take into consideration. Fiction is my lifeblood, plain and simple, and don't know where I'd be without it.

Ego.

My impossibly large ego won't allow me to accept less than perfection from myself. It forces me to throw my all into everything I do and pushes me to smash through any obstacles in my way because to do anything less would mean doing less than my best.

"strength"

In every sense of that word i mean it, i started of with a shitty life, a story i have written out if anyone here has interest in a good read but i wont bother typing any of it here. School was over i had nothing, i was fat, unfit. So the first thing i did was, try and get back into education, i did that and got slightly back on track with a future, then i exercised, dieted and am now a skinning (and to my suprise) good looking guy, now i am weight training to make myself even better whilst i finish my course on "Health, Social and Child Care".

So by strength i basically mean... Strength to make myself better, stronger, smarter. I heavily believe that if we dont try to make ourselves a better person, then whats the point? We all have bad negative things about us, i'm far from, far far far from it but i aim to make myself as perfect as i can!

Many things drive me though, this is just one, the thing drove me to pursue strength? That would be probably "love" I want to find love and get a family, my family was horrific, i was looking after my autistic brothers from the age 12 which is why i missed the entirety of school, so i want a wife, who i can love and treat like she's perfect, with kids who i can grow into awesome people (I've already raised three). I love helping people, making them smile and making them happy... I am pretty much sure i was built solely to help people and be a father but the main thing stopping me from doing that right now is that in real life, i have a huge wall not letting be myself around people until i get to know them. So i am working on getting rid of that!

I'm not stupid enough to think that i am perfect the way i am, i'm not... People judge you on looks (it's sad) but very true! So i work hard to make myself look good and it payed of yesterday (first day of college) When i was in a class of 23 girls and the only guy there. It was hard for me to socialize but none of the girls were telling me to go away, so i take that as a good sign!

Oh god i typed a lot... (ramble King) I can't really answer your question because many things drive me honestly but if i had to pick a single one it would be "Love".
