For me, my family is what keeps me motivated, to keep me on continuing to live a fruitful life. To inspire people on every good things that I do, to enjoy and have fun with my friends. They are the main reason why I still thrive and pursue my endeavors in life. for you, who or what are the things that keeps you motivated? And what do they to you to inspire you to achieve more in life?

My husband and baby are the people that keeps me motivated to finish college and get a work. I want to help my husband with our finances and for them to be proud of me as well.

Family is what is all about. Values, moral & integrity is how I was raised. Not to much of that around anymore, charish what you have and what you can give. Waking up every morning and thanking God for just being alive. My husband saved my life when I was going down the wrong road. And the values my parents instilled in me came back like they never left. There are not as many GOOD people in the world out there. Grab them while you can. That what keeps me motivated, finding good hearted, real, down to earth people. Some just don't have a conscience awareness of right and wrong anymore and some don't care. God Bless you and your family. Good Luck

First off who doesnt keep me motivated: MY PARENTS and some family members! They sit around and dont encourage, discourage is more like it. Its driving me insane! So if you cant reply on your parents... I have my sister, my best friend, and also God. Especially God. God keeps me going and the others just help me along. I'd be nothing without Him (God). I am motivated to do better than my parents who wont admit they are failures, and I hope I am doing better at least admitting I have problems when they wont admit they have more than me!

God really is a good motivator, He always listen to us and helps in many different ways!;) But it would also be nice if you and your fanily would settle your difference and learn to get along, because you may never know when you'll need them!;)

What keeps me motivated and keep on going with life is my children. I believe they need a mother to take care and guide them, that's why i kept on going stronger even sometimes i really wanted to surrender.

yes, my family too is what keeps me motivated. They are always there during ups and down and they never let me down. They don't judge me when im doing a wrong decision, for them, they just allow me to do it and learned from my mistake. They just leave me alone and when i needed them the most they just around. Without my family, i felt motivateless....

That's sweet, really!;) I can't imagine other people instead of helping those who are in need, they are putting them down=( Well, I'm glad that you've overcome all of it, I just wish you to continue doing it for you and your children..

Hey ya, raijin! Hmm, I'd say my mother and my younger brother keep me motivated. My mom encourages me, and she offers the best advice. My lil bro usually is such a pain, but every once and awhile he says something like, "You know you can do anything, right Jess?" Just little things like that keep me goin.

Well hello there Jess, been a long time!;) Happy to see you active again!;) As we all know, mothers knows best. They give us some things that we know we can take up on, and they are always there to help us whenever they feel that we are in need. I think you're lil bro really looks up to you, just don't disappoint their expectations at you. Keep it up!;)

For me, My Father and My Elder Brother are the ones who motivates me, taught me many things. They changed my approach towards life. Today what i am is because of them. My Friends also motivates me to do many things. We have a great rapo between us.

Your father must be very dedicating in raising you, he must be a very good motivator!;) Your brother maybe one of your inspirations in continuing to live a good life, and friends are just there for you whenever you need them. Keep it up!;)

hello raijin! a very nice discussion indeed and one which reminds me why i am here in mylot and trying to earn extra cash.. see my mother and my family motivates me to do good and to change myself to become a better person. i want to make my mother proud of me and all that. also these people motivate me to really keep up with all the hard times in life. they inspire me to work hard and to get a degree so that i can be able to get a good job which will yield earnings for me to be able to get the capital that need to fund my currently thought of business. this way i can be independent and i can be able to help my family too when things really go along well. anways if things turn out bad my family is always there to support me and to help me stand back on my feet again.

My daughter motivates me most as well as my parents. Sometimes I wonder why my husband doesn't motivates me, lol. Becase he lacks it hahaha. Also I think being an optimistic motivates me too as well as I really want to help my parents though I can't do it now. I believe that God has plans for me for a better life because He never tends to fail me even though sometimes I forgot to pray but my prayers are being heard almost all the time and I thanked Him for that.

What kind of husband is he?!;) LoL I guess when it all comes being unsure of certain things, God would be the One that we surely have to turn up to. Put aside our doubts and problems, let Him be the one to deal with it and we hope that He could ease our troubles and peers..

I'm usually motivated by the faith people have in me, i often think that I need to live up to their expectations as I'm actually not as good as people think :) Also I'm motivated by my dreams, without them I wouldn't survive :)

For me it is my kids, they are 1,2,5 and they keep me on my toes. I try to keep moving while they are up as I know if I sit down I will just have to get right back up again ! I keep up on the chores becuase I dont want them to get in to anything, I read to them becuase I want them to learn, I play with them becuase I want them to be happy. Okay so maybe it is that I want the best for them that keeps me motivated !

Be a good mother then, and take good care of your children!;) It's mother's instincts that keeps you moving and doing things for them..

Well I'm usually motivated by my mother. She is 65, had a hip replacement in June of 06. She has spinal stenoseous which is very painful for her and needs both knees replaced badly. Yet she is up everyday at 5:30 am and off to her full time job by 7am. So when I think I can't go on...I think of my mom and keep on trucking...lol

We cannot keep our moms in doing their usual jobs, I think it's already their nature in doing it so!;)

For me it's my writing. My desire to somehow, to spite things, succeed in life. To fulfill my dreams. And finally my friends..who without I probably would have the other motivations.

My boyfriend and my friends keep me motivated, my mom isn't one for a routin' sort of life. She doesn't influence me, she gets aggrivated if I do poorly at something and she doesn't encourage me to do better. My boyfriend's been a huge influence on my choices over the last year and a half, he's encouraged me, and motivated me to do better, and to keep up. He's amazing to me. My friends have always been behind my back. They keep me together.

I guess you just need both a mother-daughter talk to understand each other, if you want, you could be the one to open up on her. Maybe that's just she's waiting for you to do... Just my opinion. For your boyfriend, I think he must be a very man. Take care of him, and love one another!;)
