    Work:
    I work for a non-religious charitable organisation which provides rehabilitation, support and advocacy for people with Acquired Brain Injuries. I'm motivated to continue working here because I'm passionate about the work. I need money to pay my mortgage, and do nice things, and go to nice places with my wife, and although my job pays less than I could be earning elsewhere, it is enough for me a this point in my life. Also, my working conditions are flexible around my training needs.

    Training:
    It's very easy to get motivated if you really enjoy what you're doing.

      My motivations are:

      - Peeling myself from the couch in summer to roll with other sweaty men
      - To move from the warmth of the couch in winter to roll with other sweaty men
      - To endure joint pain from noobs cranking on subs too hard, too fast
      - To endure lasting joint pain for the week through being subbed repeatedly
      - To pull hamstring muscle during badly executed sweeps
      - To think said hamstring is healed after two days, only to pull it worse again
      - To risk my smile, which so far has cost me nearly 5 grand
      - To wake up and barely be able to move
      - To hear that crunch resonate up my spine as I uncharacteristically land awkwardly
      - To have my throat crushed and my eyes bulge as I choke
      - To have my face buried in some dudes crotch just before I pass out
      - To feel like I can't breathe under someone elses weight
      - Not being able to breathe because I smoked
      - To feel helpless as that sub is slowly sunk in
      - To collapse halfway through training and fight back the urge to vomit
      - Wanting the session to end, but when it does, wanting to keep going
      - To bridge and roll out of mount with experienced grapplers like I do with noobs
      - To have that headache that can only be gained from repeatedly restricting blood flow to the head

      Ummm, why do I do this again?

      Oh yeah, to give this pleasure to someone else.

        Hm...

        Nah, I'm locked into my job and too good at it to worry about it. But if I did loose it, pleasuring fat chicks wouldn't be as bad as pleasuring fat dudes, so I could deal with it!

          You know, I used to be motivated by #4 as well; to a ridiculous degree, for at least three years of my life.
          Then I finally managed to get over her by entering into an abusive relationship and being like, "man, never mind. Romance sucks."
          So yeah, I recommend finding a verbally abusive partner for a while. That cures most ex- problems in my experience.
          As for #5, I forgot to mention power metal. The steady stream of Virgin Steele and Manowar in my life keeps me in a constant state of wanting to fight and conquer everything in my path.
          The fool thinks himself immortal,
          If he hold back from battle;
          But old age will grant him no truce,
          Even if spears spare him.

              Hehe, #4 is not really an issue; but when you fight, it's better to keep your losses in mind, and not the rounds you won.

              And as to #5...

                As to fighting specifically, I guess it's simply the adrenaline.

                  I wish i knew where my motivation comes from so i could direct it to tasks which pay the bills. I'm either obsessive-compulsive about things, like training and nutrition, or completely lacking in motivation to the point of nearly not getting out of bed for work.

                            never really understood manowar, or more specifically its fans. i mean most MOW fans i meet are big burly metal heads, while manowar has to be one of the most overtly gay metal bands there is. they basically prance about in buttless chaps.

                                Well, Sir, you are sorely mistaken.
