when a person is angry it does no god. IT IS NOT NECESSARILY the case to be angry when you need motivation to Do good things according to Seneca. for example if you are running to be a president of the united states there is no need to be angry to win the campaign you can be just motivated and driven to reach your goal. when anger is defined it has two descriptive emotions in it pain and pleasure and they cause anger. for presidency if you can have all pleasure if your doing everything for a good cause there is no reason to experience pain.
when you experience pain it increases anxiety and certain conditions in which your are not able to control yourself you can cause yourself lots of necessary stress which Seneca states.

IT IS POSSIBLE THAT anger can cause anxiety however anxiety is nothing but worry and concern and IT IS POSSIBLE THAT that can cause for motivation. IT IS NOT NECESSARILY that it will cause anxiety. Anger is good because it serve as a arm an a weapon. Anger is good as long as you know the reason you are angry. IT IS POSSIBLE THAT anger causes courage because when one is angry they seek for better. Anger is moral motivation because we says that it is not. Who are we to judge what is moral or not.

Con

Anger can cause anxiety because the emotions that are involved are pain and pleasure when you put those two emotions together this can cause Anxiety which makes it NOT NECESARILY THE CASE THAT it is good to have anger. When you experience anxiety it produces alt of worry and stress.

According to Seneca anger does no one any good if you are looking to do something good which is virtue IT IS NOT NECESARILY THE CASE THAT you need to have anger. Virtue dose not need anything to assist itself in it so anger is not needed. when a persons family member is wronged according to Seneca there is no need to cause anger because it will not solve the problem if they use vengeance. and vengeance is a bad form of anger.

IT IS POSSIBLE THAT anger is not needed but again in everyday life people get stressed so they get angry why don't they have anxiety? they have motivation right? they have motivation because they get up out of their bed everyday even is they are not in school or do not have a job they was angry at least once in their lifetime . IT IS POSSIBLE THAT anger is not needed but it is away to relieve stress since you are motivated to live life which have stressful situations in it. Some one getting anxiety is IRRELAVANT to argue anger is not a good moral motivation

Con

it is IRRELEVANT to have anger to define what motivates someone. Someone can wake up day to day and work hard to provide and raise a child but It IS NOT NECESARILY the case that it is anger that produce the motivation. It can simply be the love for that child or being a mother and taking on motherly recipes that motivates a certain individual to do so.

when someone is motivated and when someone is angry I don't think the two should be intertwined like which was stated before by Seneca when there is a good virtue being done there is no other neccesary conditions with it. so in the example I sated above makes that claim true you don't need anger to complete the virtue of taking care of your child its just natural.
