Motivation: When it comes to being motivated to do good in school and pursue my goal of becoming a social worker until I get my Masterís degree and becoming a therapist is my son. My son is not the only thing that motivates to pursue my college degree, but he is my main motivation. Before he came into my life I was motivated to pursue my goals and college degree. I have also been motivated by my own feelings of being able to help people out in life. I have had the struggle of knowing that finding the right therapist is hard and I know that there are people out in the world that need to find a good therapist for themselves or someone in their family. I have always been motivated to achieve my college degree and be able to help the people that need to be helped. When I had my son he became the biggest motivation for me to pursue my college degree. I want him to see that school is important and getting your college degree to get a good job or be able to succeed in the career that he wants. He has given me the gift of knowing that nothing is impossible and I want him to know that too.
Purpose: As a student in college I before I found what I want to do with my life, I have found that my purpose for seeking a college degree was showing myself that I can do anything that I put my mind it do. As a person that didnít take college completely seriously when I first started college I have learned that seeking a degree and finding what I wanted to do with my life, getting a degree became more important to me than ever before. I have found that I didnít want to be like some of the people that I have known in my life that donít care about their education and I with that I started seeking a new purpose for my education and wanted to get my degree and have a good life.
Values: Some of the values that I am demonstrating when I am seeking my college degree are achievement, duty, and feeling of self-worth.
Achievement: when I look at achievement as I am seeking my college degree I am seeing myself achieve my goals in life. When I was younger I have always been seen as the person that wouldnít do anything with my life because of the way I was. As I am seeking my college degree I am demonstrating that I can achieve the things that I put my mind to. With this I am demonstrating to people that you can do anything you put your mind to and it doesnít matter what people think about you, your able to do anything that you want to.
Duty: With this I am able to fulfill my obligations. With duty I am able to do what others ask me to do. I am showing that it doesnít matter what the person is asking of you youíre able to do what they want and not have to worry about having to ask for help if you need it. I have learned that with the value of duty I am able to do everything within a time limit and not putting things off to the last minute.
Feeling of self-worth: with the feeling of self-worth I am able to feel like I can do anything that I set my mind to. With this value and seeking my college degree I am showing that self-worth is more than just earning a paycheck but really liking what I am doing for a living and feeling like my life matters. Feeling of self-worth is one of the most important value that I have found while seeking my college degree because without self-worth you wouldnít do what people ask of you.
Discipline: When it comes to how I am willing to schedule my life to life to include my study time I am always willing to put my study time way above most things in my life. I donít have to many things that I have to do during the day so I
