Motivation. All things are motivated to act by external stimuli. The rock falling. The wind blowing. The man jogging. Each is linked to a specific motivating force. Nothing happens which is not first motivated.
But, as sentient beings, we are gifted a degree of control over such forces. We have certain obligations (such as jobs and families) that may override the desire to do other, more enjoyable, things. Thusly, are we constrained to the natural order of things, as the net motivational force (desire, necessity, entropy). Or, does the system breakdown with the inclusion of rational beings?
