I know this sounds silly...but I just want to ask any of you. What motivates you a lot to get what you want in life?

My being a mother to my six children is the greatest factor that motivates me to strive hard and very hard to attain my goals. Secondly, my parents who are still working now for themselves. I wish that whenever I am financially capable or stable, that my parents would stop from working and will just support them. It is so, because I feel like that it would only be the time I could pay them back with all the sacrifices they did to me. For my children who are all so young, I need to attain my goal so I could support them all the way until they can really stand on their own feet. I would really want to give my children the best education they deserve so that in return, they would surely think of doing the same to their own children.

Well first of all, you have to know what you want. That is the most important thing. Secondly, your question is what motivates you to get what you want? Before I answer that, I have a question for you. "How can you NOT be motivated to get what you want?" I mean, it is what YOU want. What you want determines your choices, your beliefs, your dreams. If it's about what you WANT all the motivation you need should come from within you. No amount of second-hand motivation can convince you to get what you are aiming for if you hadn't convinced yourself first. well at least that how it should be. My answer: Self motivation *Think about it*

When I think about the sacrifices that my family has done towards me to study I feel motivated every time thinking about this. And when I see my friends already there at the pillar it motivates me furthermore to be there too.
