Why do you get up in the morning?

MarcusAt dawn, when you have trouble getting out of bed, tell yourself: ‘I have to go to work — as a human being. What do I have to complain of, if I’m going to do what I was born for — the things I was brought into the world to do? Or is this what I was created for? To huddle under the blankets and stay warm?’
– by Marcus Aurelius

Marcus Aurelius was the Emperor of Rome from 161 to 180 AD. He is probably best known for being the father figure character to Russell Crowe in Gladiator. He also had a lot of great reasons to get up in the morning such as avoiding assassination, fighting wars, etc.

Why do you get up in the morning? Do you have a mission, a calling, a purpose?
