The drive to succeed is rooted in a smoldering desire to achieve our personal best and turn our potential into a life that makes an impact and leaves a legacy. Aligning drive with skills that society values, creates the opportunity for wealth.
Skills create the impact and skills are a combination of KNOWLEDGE and BEHAVIOR. To identify the source of your drive, find what you love to learn about and do. This is your passion. Next, you must apply that passion to a purpose. This purpose is the nature of the impact you want to make or the legacy you want to leave. The more you believe the world NEEDS it and that you are NEEDED to make it a reality, the greater the drive.

Start by taking an inventory of the skills you have and reviewing your past accomplishments. Look for common themes and links between your skills and accomplishments. This soul-searching is difficult but self-awareness is the key to self-actualization.
