Dungeon Prompts: Driven

Image via www.smursfanonwikia.com

This week’s prompt is: Driven  

“There are two types of people in this world- those who pull out of bed each morning at the thought of breakfast and those who are driven by ambition. The former succeed in satisfying hunger pangs and the latter accomplish their life goals.”

– Roopleen

“Life has a funny way of testing you to see if you really want, what you say you want.”

― Turcois Ominek

“Predictions of failure have never stopped those whose ambitions are driven by their unwavering vision.”

― Nabil N. Jamal

Today’s Prompt:

We are all moved to get out of bed for a reason, work, school, or are just tired of being asleep, but at some point the internal need to be awake kicks in.  What is your need?  What is your passion?  Are you constantly moving towards a particular goal, or are you just trying to get through the day?  By what are you driven?

The article that you link to this prompt should be a new post written specifically for this assignment. 

Dungeon Prompts are meant to open up the abandoned rooms inside ourselves and dust them off a bit.  Explore the recesses of your mind and get back with a poem, story, essay or creative offering.  Link your post to this specific prompt page and I’ll share your link back with our readers.

To participate, all you’ll need to do is:

1.            Tag your post with: “DungeonPrompts”

2.            Link back to this page in the body of your post *

3.            Dive deep within and give us a glimpse of your soul!**

  1. I’ve been hoping you were OK. When you didn’t post yesterday, I worried about you, but didn’t want to pester you. I’m glad to see you back.

    I’m amused that you mentioned when you wake up and get out of bed in your response to last week’s prompt, and return to that theme this week. I’m looking forward to your expanding on that. Perhaps you are deliberately changing the conversation from “when did you get up?” to “why did you get up?” — which is a vitally more important and interesting question.

    Did you mean to post “This week’s prompt is: Driven (running from June 4 – June 10)”? The dates confused me 🙂

    1. You do good work when you’re asleep! I’m impressed! What a great way to add hours to a day 😉

      Thank you for your commitment to this task. Once again, you got my mind ticking…
