We basically can have one of five motives
1. Love which results in doing good towards others
2. Jealousy which results in hatred (for jealousy is over ones low self-esteem hence hatred to those with good self-esteem) hence a desire to destroy, aka Arabs Nazis anti-Semites radical left right etc.
3. Self-agrandization hence a desire for recognition e.g. fame through being a star in some arena whether economically, intelligentsia, movies etc.
4. Martyr syndrome, which is when a person believes, through victimization they will receive attention
5. And the highest level is self sacrifice – submitting your (even positive love) agenda to the higher love, wisdom, compassion etc. of God’s and humbly serving
