What do we call the force that drives us forward?

What do we call the force that drives us forward?

Empathy is the capacity to understand or feel what another person is experiencing from within the other person's frame of reference, i.e., the capacity to place oneself in another's shoes.

and in thermodynamics:
noun: enthalpy; plural noun: enthalpies; symbol: H
  1. a thermodynamic quantity equivalent to the total heat content of a system. It is equal to the internal energy of the system plus the product of pressure and volume.
    • the change in enthalpy associated with a particular chemical proces

In thermodynamics, entropy (usual symbol S) is a measure of the number of specific ways in which a thermodynamic system may be arranged, commonly understood as a measure of disorder.

: the strength or force that something has when it is moving
: the strength or force that allows something to continue or to grow stronger or faster as time passes
physics : the property that a moving object has due to its mass and its motion

def 1
:  a property of a moving body that the body has by virtue of its mass and motion and that is equal to the product of the body's mass and velocity; broadly :  a property of a moving body that determines the length of time required to bring it to rest when under the action of a constant force or moment
:  strength or force gained by motion or by a series of events 
So are we confused yet?
Flourishing: Health and well-being are the force that drive successful life. (note: PP states that positive emotion, engagement, meaning, action, achievement, satisfaction, joy, positive emotion... is the cycle forward.) 
  but what is the force called?

Willpower? Time? Knowledge? Understanding? Motivation? 
Is there a force? I can feel it at times. Like gravity, yet it must be biological. It appears to be natural and have existed since the time the first H+ joined with Carbon. It is the biological equivalent of electronic attraction of negative and positive ions. It is and when it gets the opportunity, it happens.
