What motivates you? Maybe you like to prove to yourself that you can beast any challenge. Maybe you're more determined to impress other people, even if it's not so much about boasting as it is about having a satisfying sense of personal pride. Maybe you're just really competitive. Or maybe you have to bribe yourself with candy just to get housework done.
This writer finds it difficult to be driven to finish schoolwork or housework. Doing things for friends, however, is a different story. I find myself willing to help people in almost any situation, despite whatever personal cost there may be to me. I'll give basically all of myself for other people. Maybe I have more trouble with schoolwork and housework because those things are supposed to benefit me directly, and I find more satisfaction in seeing my friends happy than I do in seeing a clean floor in my bedroom. It might be because helping others has the immediate payoff of their happiness, while doing schoolwork isn't really rewarded until grades come out at the end of the semester. In the end, I care about the people in my life very deeply, while I'm unsure what my own future holds. I don't have a defined goal to work toward for myself or my career, but I do have a heart full of love.
