You can chain me, you can torture me, you can even destroy this body, but you will never imprison my mind.

Something drives you

Something causes you to take action. Something motivates you with 100% effectiveness. Do you know what it is? Something gets you out of bed in the morning. Even on the days you sleep late, you eventually get up. Do you know why?

Something drives you to do the things you do. Perhaps it is your family, your faith, your vision, your fear, the desire for a better life, love, the desire for pleasure, or an infinite number of other things. Most likely it is a combination of factors. It’s different for everyone.

Something drives you, and at some level, buried deep inside of your self awareness, you know what it is. The more fully you understand and appreciate what drives you, the more control you have over your own life. You’re able to accomplish precisely what you want to accomplish.

Something drives you, on a moment by moment basis. Look inside yourself, harness that power, control it, direct it, and you can accomplish whatever you set your mind to achieve.

— Ralph Marston
