Watch this video clip and ask yourself this: What motivates these people to do what they do? Do they get paid? Are they looking for fame? What reward do they get from doing what they do? Money, fame, sponsorship? And if they fail along the way, what keeps them going?

What about you. Is there something you have had to work really hard to achieve? A sporting skill, a science concept, a major issue at home, learning new words or concepts, doing a trick on a skateboard? How do you stay motivated, and, what motivates you?

Your challenge for tomorrow [Wednesday June 1st] is to ask 1 adult in your family what motivates them for 1 of the following:

why do they do the job they do OR why do they live where they live OR why are they involved in a social activity [like footy or charity].
