    Not gonna lie; my current motivation is to be good enough for that special someone...

    I'm also terrified of failure; my work is an extension of myself.

    Define successful.
    Dictionary definition:

    'accomplishing a desired aim or result'

    'having achieved fame, wealth, or social status'


    Mine would be the former of the two.

    Very nice. Still unsure personally as I don't want the burden of high financials but feel success nowadays only encompasses monetary gain. :c

    Completely a personal preference.
    Most people I know would value monetary gains very highly in terms of defining success but for me personally money is only important to a certain extent. My desire to accomplish my aims in life is more significant to me than financial gains.

    I set rewards for myself. If I can work on this essay for an hour, I get to watch one episode of anime. That kind of stuff, extremely motivating.
