Check out this message from a student who graduated.
“Motivation is a lot like exercise. It needs to be done daily to see consistent results- so watch a video today, speak to someone tomorrow, sit back and imagine the pride in your family's faces during graduation day - everyday just keep adding wood to keep the fire burning”.

A person I admire is:
'Imagine they have come to visit you. What would they say that would be inspiring to you?’
In having a conversation with your role model they are interested to know what are the top three things that make you motivated.

1. 2. 3.
‘You role model asks you further, how do you know when you are motivated?’
