When trying to attain a certain goal it is always important that you plan a course of motivation. When digging deep down within yourself it is important to be able to find an obect of motivation. An object of motivation can be for the benefit of a child's better life, your own life, for the naysayers, or simply because you want to do something for yourself extrodinary. In my case I have always liked to prove others wrong, when someone says it can't be done that is what makes me shoot even harder towards attaining a goal or completion of something. When given anykind of information I do not take it like it is a solid word and that is the end of it, I personally always do research. The people that surround you often can help or hurt your personal progress, it is up to you to sort out the individuals that contribute to your upbringing vs. the ones who are bringing you down. It is very beneficial that you have friends from all different age levels from young to old. People and friends at different ages can contribute alot toward a persons development as we all know everybody knows something that the next person doesn't know. I consult with younger generationista espeacially about technology, and with the older associates more wise things such as decisions that are crucial to life.
Be careful of toxic relationships such as friendships, girlfriends, and boyfriends. People can bring you down in various ways wether it be consciously or un-consciously watch who you let in your circle they can make you be motivated or they can un motivate and breakdown the very process that you are buliding. Be careful and choose wisely motivation is one of the keys to a succesful endeavor.
