In life, what motivates you? Makes you want to be a better person?

I guess first and foremost it would be my kids. I strive to be a good role model, be there when they need me, and teach them right from wrong.

My motivation is my boys; they are my world.. When I feel like giving up I just look at their faces and remember they are counting on me.. I want them to grow up and be good men that take the good with the bad; and never give up regardless of what life throws at them.. I also have a second motivater; my other half pass away 7 months ago.. I know he is watching us from above.. I want to do what he cant; I know how he wanted our boys to be rasied.. I think of him and it usually helps me get back on track..

First I am so sorry for your loss. Lossing a loved one is always difficult, and when it's a spouse I think it's truly a little harder when you have children. It is wonderful you want to carry on and do the things he wanted for your boys. I respect you for that; and you are right, all you have to do is look at your children, look into their eyes and realize they are counting on you.

I do what ever needs to be done for the day.. Phone calls are the main thing that I have trouble getting done, still figuring everything out.. But I can lay down at the end of the day and feel good about what I did do; and have fun with the boys.. There isnt a day that goes by without the both of them laughing, and having a great time.. Its a priority on my list.. Childhood is really short.. They have plenty of time in the future to be adultlike or adults..

LOL Well that comes with being young and loving life! You have a good idea now you just need to implement it and work on it. But I know what you mean, it is very hard to resist a cute purse or pair of shoes!

For most people, the child is the greatest motivation, to make parents, become a better person. Because, every parent, always want their children, is also getting better. If parents can not make him better, how their child will be good, and better.

Children are a true motivator. You are right, they make us want to be a better person, to make the right choices, and to succeed.

Yeah,many people regard their children as the most important part and struggle for them. My parents are like you when I was young. For me, I have no kids yet, so I just want to do the things I want to do best and earn money as much as I can. And I want to help my parents very much.

That's very admirable that you want to help your parents. They must be very proud of you.
