what keeps you going on the way toward FIRE?

Just the idea that I don't want to continue my current pace for 40-45 years of my life. I LBMM so that I can FIRE, and I could downscale to a slower pace life now, but then I'd have to work for a longer period of time. I don't mind working like a dog now, although I like it less as I get older, but I want to be young and healthy enough to enjoy the fruits of my labor.
