"My satisfaction always comes from a job well done. I am self-led and disciplined, so my satisfaction truly comes from within."
"I have worked very hard to gain a leadership position. Being a manager gives me the sense that my work and actions genuinely matter to other people. If my work ethic and attitude can positively influence someone else, that is the most satisfying moment for me."
"As a marketing professional, I gain the most satisfaction from exercising the creative side of my brain. I have a high amount of energy and ideas so when my days are filled with brainstorming, and spontaneity, that satisfies me very much."
"I enjoy helping people, so seeing, or hearing from, a satisfied customer is what drives me."
"I am competitive by nature, so my satisfaction comes from the chase and the win. I love a friendly negotiation, to chase a deal, and to uncover a potential new client."
"As a teacher, I gain the most satisfaction from knowing my students are gaining a solid foundation for their future. I care about the success of my students, and when one of them pulls up their grades or shows a genuine passion for a particular topic, it makes me so happy."
