There are many factors that motivate me to learn. One factor is my daughter. Ever since the day she was born, I have noticed that my outlook on life has changed for the better. There have been so many things that I have wanted to accomplish and having her has just brought them more to the surface. My college education is something that I want to pursue not only to better myself but to be able to always be able to provide for her. Another factor that motivates me to learn is the fact that I actually have the desire to learn. I truly believe that at this point in my life I am completely ready to continue my education. I am ready to learn and feel a sense of accomplishment.
I believe that the context that best motivates my learning is personal context. I have tried to set certain goals in my life but have always had a hard time completing them. I, like Chris, know there is a goal out there that I want and I know that I just have to be committed to reaching it. I believe that my main problem has always been trying to start in the middle of a goal instead of starting at the beginning. I have noticed that if you do not start at the beginning you are cheating yourself to ever be able to complete a goal. Setting goals for yourself is always a good thing but you have to set realistic goals and be committed to achieving them. I have noticed that I always set goals that I know I am going to fail at, but after taking some time and reading Chris’ story I now know to start small and work up to make it to the “finish line”.
