Post 1 summer

To be motivated means to be induced or moved into action or thought by either the push of a motive or the pull of an incentive (Deckers, 2010, p. 7). In summer of 2008 I started my education after my youngest child entered preschool. Of course being one of the oldest college students sitting in the front of the class all seemed a bit weird; however, I let nothing get in my way and my motivation continued to stay strong.  My personal motivational incentives include setting a prime example for my children that education is a must, being able to financially contribute to my family, and to prove a point to myself. I always told myself after high school I would never go back and, now, I will be graduating with my bachelor’s degree in psychology this July! Now for all the mothers and students, who read this, never say you can’t. I’m married with 3 beautiful children and I manage. I’m not saying that it is easy by any means, but my story is a prime example of how strong motivation can actually be. Maybe it comes with age, or maybe I know I have little ones to provide for and show examples to, but I do know one thing I wouldn’t be here today if I gave up! 


  1. Congratulations! It is refreshing to feel close to accomplishing something so rewarding, like the degree. That reward of a degree is a big motivator to do and to accomplish. That degree could stand for a lot of side rewards. A better job, more money, etc... The reward is a huge part of motivation in this case.
