For me, disrespect is my biggest motivator.  Recently, an associate tried to sign one of my expireds that I was planning on re-signing in a month or two.  She told the sellers that I didn't market the property well enough, not knowing what I did to market it last year (which was twice what she was going to do for them).  Pissed me off royally, and made me revamp how I communicate my marketing to my sellers, not only verbally, but with a report that they have in their hands.  The property is now under contract in half the time she told them that she could do it.

Never, ever, dis my honor or my hard work.

I'd say inspiration. But fear can be a powerful motivator in some cases

#5 always! Inspiration drives me in every area of my life.

I would add PAIN as a compelling force. Pain avoidance definitely motivates people.

I think that fear can make the biggest impact on me.  I don't typically get motivated to act out of hate, spite or disrespect.

I think Inspiration and Hope tends to make me act.  Mostly, I try to stay away from people that instill the other emotions.  I figure they are unhappy and insecure.

Probably 5 and then 2, in that order. Inspiration or self-preservation. Not sure that would directly translate to fear . . .
