What is your biggest driver in life, what motivates you to do your job? What is Your Greatest Accomplishment?

My idol is judge Giovanni Falcone, who succed to change the modern history of Italy, related with the crime organization in that country.He was one and only who step on the way of the biggest criminals in the world, and find a crucial evidence to arrest them. This is something what we all have to respect,because we are all faced with different types of people which are related with criminal organization which are trying to steal the citizens money.
