    What Drives You Forward In Life?

    I've thought about posting this on the Myers Briggs, Philosophy or Debate Forum but I'd rather hear about interesting ENTP stuff about what gets you going in life. I'd really rather not read about some NF "Let's make the world a better place!" or SJ "Let's get everyone on a working schedule, committed to a routine plan, then enslave them by always using that committment as a reason to bitch at them when they get off schedule!" NO! I don't want to hear that!

    So therefore, ENTPs what makes you want to get out of bed everyday? Is it the want to make everyday an exercise of your creative minds? Is it to find how many rules you can break and make a profit out of doing so? Or is it something else entirely?

    well, what drives me forward in life is knowing that i will experience adventure and get caught up in many different profitable ventures. It feels good knowing that i have the creative mind that can turn my world filled with wealth and recognition.

    Adventuring and exploring. I want to travel the world and learn new skills and have been doing it a little at a time. I've gone backpacking, rappelling, joined the military, owned a motorcycle, taken Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and plan to S.C.U.B.A. very soon and skydive after that. The world is too big and interesting for me to ignore it and live a life of routine.

    To fund all of that, I've been trying the off beaten path. Everyone likes to start at the bottom of the corporate ladder and work their way up. I've managed to find myself invited to rich people's parties and make connections. After a couple of years of doing this, people in high places want to take me under their wing and show me the ropes of real business. I'm talking good investments, client deals and such that bring in good turnover without dealing with the 9-5 grind, 5 days a week.

    Why even bother doing that? If you beat me in Brazilian jujitsu I'll give you my kidney and you can probably sell it to a Mexican drug cartel for like 200g.

    For me it's pretty simple. I have an almost-4-year-old and I'm pretty much a single dad. I wouldn't have missed being a father for anything in the world, but I often wish I had entered into it with a woman who wasn't as troubled.

    I do--however--vaguely remember having the luxury of worrying if my goals in life were worthy. For me it went high school->three years working grunt jobs->college->goof-off year full of mountainbikes and parties ->work, work, work, work. Through it all I had intermediate goals that were achieved. So I'm happy.

    Passion for making a success of my entrepreneurship is what drives me. I have one company underway currently, and am in the process of starting a second one to bring in some immediate income while the first one grows.

    I am driven by a desire to be 100% independent and to be able to do whatever I want when I want.

    I wake up, can't guarantee there is anything more or anything after what I see here, so might as well make the best of it. I'm sure eventually I'll find some reason worth pursuing but until then, it's wake up, hope I'm around some interesting people and explore some thought or place in my mind.

    Done it. I only got a couple hundred. Didn't even cover my plane ticket.

    Knowing there is still much to be discovered. The possibility of changing mentalities - couple of intermingling minds often work better than just one. The potential for alteration - anything can be improved provided you have knowledge, understanding, and a touch of mad ingenuity.

    Possibilities drive me more than probabilities, sometimes drive over them. Some rules are just pennies of human principles. Who cares. I want to be able to play with the world as much as my senses and body allow me, any way I can (be it through understanding the way it works, interacting with it, etc, etc). I dunno, everything about it is fascinating and anything about it can be creatively transcended with just your mind.

    That's what the human is here for~
