How does motivation work?

Recently I have come across this great old parable of stone cutters.

A man came across three stonecutters and asked them what they were doing. The first replied, “I am making a living.” The second kept on hammering while he said, “I am doing the best job of stonecutting in the entire county.” The third looked up with a visionary gleam in his eye and said, “I am building a cathedral.”

Although these three men were doing the same job, there were three different answers. I think this is a great example of motivation “in action”.
