    any strong emotion can change a life. each one motivates the person to a different behavior but they are equally strong.

    Pride. It can be applied in many ways to. I know that pride is supposed to be one of the seven deadly sins or whatever, but if used in a good way, I don't see the problem.

    all of those emotions trigger motivation, but I think most is found in fear.

    Love!!!!!!!!!! It can conquer the hardest of hearts, do miracles and change lives. There's no greater feeling than to be loved, whether it's by your wife, your children, your family or your best friends. Even the love your pets give you make difficult times appear better and easier to confront. A person without love is a lost soul.

    I hate to think like thi, but it seems that hate is. All that is wrong with the world today is because of hate, so it must be the stronger motivator. Still though, somehow my mind wishes love were the stronger motivated. In some people it is... but in too many it's hate. Hate is the only thing worth putting any energy into hating.

    love and fear. one leads to the dark side and the other to the light. (star wars refference) but its stupid to believe that the only emotions are love and fear. there are all kinds of feelings. (donnie darko)

    I think It's fear becuase it can really get to your senses and seriously hurt you I think that is the one.

    Guess it depends on the context.
    The pursuit of money is first and foremost in everyone's mind.
    Most people I know use 'material items' to judge a persons success.
    While none of us NEED a 60" wall mount TV. lots of people out there just 'have to get one'.
    Lots of people will quit their job they are happy at for one they will be less happy but make more $$$$$.
    I'd be willing to bet 75% of all marital arguments, and further that to divorce, are caused by arguing over money and not having enough of it.

    All of these are powerful emotions, but I think greed is the one that drives the largest percentage.

    All emotions are strong and shared by mankind in different levels but fear is a natural survival instinct that makes you act the fastest to save yourself or others.

    For me, it's Love...no question about it! Lots of folks are motivated by hate, got no time to waste,,,,,life is way too short for that, besides it consumes the person who hates just as it hurts the recipient.....

    i think that love and hate are equal but that fear can be applied to a lot of things so like you might take a bullet for someone you love out of love but also out of the fear of living without them...

    so in short, i couldn't decide.

    .. and Love are the biggest motivators. If you fear losing something you love, you will do just about anything to hold on to it.
    That fear gives you strength you never knew you had!
