I believe Ryano's insight in this question might be extremely incisive.
I think for some it just depends on what floats your boat. Do you want to be overall strong so that in your gym/club/meets you're a big man on whatever lifts are expected? Or do you love one thing and want to hammer it out to it's ultimate?
Me, I got started because I wanted to clean and press my BW. But along the way I found I liked just picking up heavy stuff no matter what.
And I love balance. I would dearly love to military my BW, but I also really want to do 10 pullups too.
Bottom line, I think this answer comes from within.
