Freedom would be my answer as well. Not having to trade my time for money. I did get sick of feeling like a paid slave. I think it was in one of Robert Allen's books where he talked about being able to do what you want, where ever you want, with who ever you want, for how ever long you want. I like that. I don't want to "HAVE TO" do anything. I'd rather do the things I do because I want to, not because I have to.
Plus, I just think it's smarter to do work that you get paid for again and again from a one time effort rather than work that you only get paid for once. We create the articles for our websites one time and they can help bring in money again and again. So, creating a residual income is another motivation.
A third motivation, for me, is that I want to become self employed. I had a job that damaged my lungs so now it's kind of hard for me to do physical labor. So I'm currently stuck living with my dad. I know I will success eventually though - I'm determined, my situations sucks too bad for me to give up. :)
Accumulating physical possessions is not a motivation for me. I'm somewhat spiritual I guess - I'm not materialistic at all. I do plan on doing some traveling once I'm making a decent income. Once I get a handle on the financial area of my life and I can afford it, I plan on working on my health. I plan on going to the Hippocrates Health institute and maybe a couple of others to learn as much as I can. In the mean time, I'm working on a couple of affiliate sites in the health niche.
I also met a lovely Filipino girl online a couple years ago. We've been talking ever since. We plan on doing some traveling together when we can afford it. I'm trying to get her into affiliate marketing because she actually writes for a living. I'm trying to get her to see that she could be getting paid over and over again for her efforts rather than just getting paid once for each thing she writes. :)
