User's Question

How can I become more motivated/determined to do things I don't want to do?

I am studying in PUC, and my parents want me to be an engineer but I want to be a Doctor, and my parents and not ready for that. How I change my mind and motivate myself to be in that direction, which I don't like?

Dear, motivation is innate. We eat food when the motive is hunger. We fall in love when the motive is love. Exactly same with the case of education and career. You need to define your career so that you get motivated. Don't worry you have to choose something you don't like. Life is alwayslike that. You will be compelled to choose something you never wanted. Take it sportively. Nourish your skills, enjoy your education, be passionate with your subject, love your subject, nurture and nourish a goal. automatically you will be motivated. A good motivation psychologist can give you perfect motivation. Take care.
