Dear A,

This is highly individual question. So as for me my motivation, my objective and my wiliness to make this day the best day in my life are the thongs that really drives me. However, I'm not sure that they are transferable to you. So I would simply recommend you to be yourself and to be authentic.

If you need any further help or advice, feel free to reach out.
