Sometimes it is hard to keep up the motivation, but it is always good to keep striving to be the best you can be. I have noticed that my daughter really appreciates the fact that I stand up for what I believe in. It is important to teach young woman to believe in themselves and to make confident, educated decisions. There are so many young people that don't have a good role model to follow.
Whenever my daughter has a lot of homework and committments she goes right after it and doesn't stop until the work is done at a high level. She has learned to perform to a very high level because the rewards will be better.
Honestly, after striving to be the best you can, can become very natural, but you just need to remember to stay grounded.
