Everyone has a different reason why they make gold. Survival, to pay for their own items, working for the guild, challenging to be the best. All of these are viable options as well as a few I am sure you can come up with.
Whichever you choose to motivate you, sometimes you have to shake up that motivation once you have reached your goal. I reached a plateau of sorts many months ago in the idea that I could cruise on just the gold I have in the bank and never have to sell an item again. Most of the items on the RMAH are easily within my reach without sending shock waves through my bank account. So my motivation to be able to buy items was removed with this revelation.
So it was needed to change my motivation to something different. Yes I could have easily just gave my gold away and started over. I even did this by starting on another server to play with a completely new set of rules. Where I have high regards for people who can give all of their gold away to random players and start all over I have never been able to pull the trigger on that option. I enjoy too much of diving and swimming in the piles of gold ala Scrooge McDuck.
What I did end up doing is to challenge myself to help others be able make gold. Not just through this journal but also through loaning of gold to players. I did say loan and not give away. My personal opinion is that giving gold is a hand out and loaning gold is a hand up. It is the same principles I place on my daily life as well. Do I expect to always get paid back? No, but it is expected that if they are successful they have the option of either paying me back or to help someone else.
Self Motivation is very important in whatever you choose to do. Very rarely will you have someone standing behind you pushing you all the way to your goals. You are the only one that can push you into being successful. The same as you are the only one to be there when it all falls apart.
Either way success is entirely up to you. That is the biggest key to success.
