If your motivation is pursue, you’re focused on moving ahead, change, and what comes nextin your life.Your actions, choices, and behaviors are all aimed at going for what you want. You’re not concerned with loss, and you aren’t inclined to simply manage life but instead are motivated to go after what matters to you.
If you are unaware of your nature, you won’t know what to pursue or how to pursue it. Often people whose motivation is pursue end up unable to go for what they want and suffer a loss because of it. So, in a way we can call the opposite of pursue “death.” It may be the death of a dream, left out to wither away, but it’s still a loss. Not knowing who you really are can lead to a life of pursuing someone else’s dreams or ideals while letting your own to fall away slowly or to a life of pursuing nothing at all.
