What Drives Men

  • Desire / Ambition ( the source of which can be Pride / Envy / Passion / Greed †)

Let me explain

Desire or Ambition is the seed of action, which sets everything else in motion,few examples

Desire to be the best in a field or class or company, even country†

Why would someone want to be the best in something , why do we compete ?

There are many reasons and some of them are listed below

1. Pride – You want to be praised, be popular and enjoy the power you get by being at the top

2. Envy – You are†jealous to let other be the best in a competition or field

3. †Greed – You might want all the money and fame that come with winning

4. Passion – You might be naturally good at something and being the best turns you on

    Einstein and Spinoza were of the opinion that life may be predetermined as a result of our inability to shape our desire. I’m not sure if I subscribe to that thought or not. It’s true that we have no control over our desires….but, at the same time, desires might be shaped by our experiences – which we do shape over time. Either way, what a very interesting subject!
