For example, I discovered a new word: entelechy. Derived from the Greek word for "having a goal" or "the supposed vital principle that guides the development and functioning of an organism." Psychologist Deirdre Lovecky said, "Entelechy is a particular type of motivation, need for self-determination, and an inner strength and vital force directing life and growth to become all one is capable of being."
Tim Burton said, "The tricky thing about being in the entertainment industry is that basically no matter how much money is involved, how good the life is, the thing that still compels you is that thing inside." It's what my dad calls the "burning in the belly."
I think the key to propelling the driven is curiosity, which compels creativity and activates drive.
