What is your motivation?( promotion/ railroad transportatio) Michael Jordan, a retired NBA player, is often largely acclaimed for the six championships that he brought to the city of Chicago back in the ’90s. However, his die-hard fans know that he failed many, many times before he succeeded, but Michael did not give up. So, what about you? What is your motivation for learning? What keeps you going even when you feel like dropping the proverbial ball and going home?

My school motivation is both personal and for my family. I am in my late 20’s and failed college right out of high school. I was dealing with difficulties at home and when that was coupled with school difficulties, I decided the best decision I could make was to start working and to move out on my own. As the busyness of life started to increase, school did not seem like a viable option.
Later on I got married and a couple years ago, my wife and I found out we were expecting our first child. Because of this, I started to see the importance of having a degree so that I could provide even more for my family in the future. I knew that was the right next step because even though I struggled in school before, I knew I always enjoyed the act of learning.
Conquering the act of achieving my bachelor’s degree along with the possibility of increased income are both of my motivating factors for not quitting. I know nothing in life is guaranteed, especially with how much I will make. But, it is empowering to know that I can succeed in school and possibly see a better life for my family and I.
