The importance of motivation for students

Motivation can overcome fear, laziness, and defeat. For example in a football game, two teams that competed always strive to play according to strategy, an attempt to defeat the opponent. In a balanced position, they try to outperform his opponent as soon as possible. When it is superior, they will maintain it and try to increase the advantage. When left behind, they are trying to equalize and even reverse the situation. All can occur when all the players are motivated to do just that.

A strong push from within will bring up the energy to continue trying to achieve the desired success. At the time of study or do chores, there are times when we are serious, there is also time that we are lazy. That's all influenced by motivation from within ourselves. Motivation gives impetus within us to do something. Despite the success of students determined by the strategies of learning and basic skills that are owned, motivation remains a trigger energy to excel.

Intelligence or intellectual abilities and talents are important factors to achieve a feat. However, neither of them would be beneficial if a person does not have sufficient motivation. Although the results of intelligence tests showed a high figure, if someone does not want to take advantage of this, then all the excess it becomes meaningless. But conversely, if someone only has an IQ of mediocre, but he is highly motivated to excel, it is not impossible that he will get high performance.

At school, motivation becomes a very important basis for the successful achievement of educational goals and effectiveness of learning activities. Students' motivation to learn to make them have a strong desire to follow and appreciate all the activities associated with the learning process.

Today's teen promiscuity

Teenage promiscuity is currently a major need to get the spotlight, because in the present social development of adolescents is very worrying because the current world-wide modernization and moral as well as the depletion of one's faith, especially today's youth. This is very worrying because the hands of this nation mudalah generation will bring, good and bad of this nation is dependent on the younger generation.
Teenagers as a transition between the children into adulthood. Teenagers are also a restructuring of consciousness or period of development and refinement of the peak of development characterized by changes in the condition of "entropy" of human consciousness that is not neat isisnya although many (knowledge, feelings, etc.) into a state of "negative entropy" state of the contents of consciousness that is composed with good, knowledge that one related to other knowledge.
In an age of forward current, adolescent promiscuity also progressing, but instead forward in promiscuity. Attitudes and behavior they are formed because of the influence of external lungkungan. Also the new things that happen, and usually more exciting, from problems arising from teenage promiscuity, curiosity about romance (romance) and sex, until the problems are contrary to law, norms and social order prevailing in the surrounding world of adolescence.
Many psychologists who claim that adolescence is a time of trouble, a turbulent, risky (psychologically), over energy, and so forth, because it is caused by some active hormones. But the claims arising from the above statement makes teenagers feel that what is happening, and what they have done is a common and reasonable.

Most teenagers today in her social efforts, they form a group or commonly called "gangs". Formation kelompok-kelompok/geng this will then will be the hallmark and have an agreement that specifically and only exist within a group. Interest to these groups become part of the growth process they experienced. Sometimes for the sake of a friend who became a member / her gang, a teen can do and give up anything, with one goal, Solidarity. But sometimes solidarity into things that are false, blind and destructive (destructive or destroyed), which ultimately undermine the sense of solidarity itself. For reasons of solidarity, a gang sometimes provide challenges or pressures to members of the group (peer pressure) is contrary to law or the existing social order. Such as using drugs, kissing boyfriend, have sex, do the hold-up, skipping school, fighting, smoking, graffiti walls, and much more.

Individually, teenagers often feel uncomfortable in doing what dituntutkan on him. However, due to the large amount of pressure or the desire to be recognized and helplessness to leave the group as well as the inability to say "no", making all the demands of a given group are forced to do. Eventually, this behavior becomes a habit, and attached as a character that is manifested in a variety of negative behaviors.
Based on the above theory, teenagers will be formed to be a person that people want. But this can not be simply charged to groups or gangs who have teens. Because adolescents are individuals who are free and each of them certainly has a unique, hallmark and innate character of the family.
As described above, that group is a group of young teenagers with the values, desires and the same fate. However, adolescence is a period where a person learns to socialize with peers in more depth and with that they get the identity of what they want.
In spite of it all, adolescence is a period which was beautiful in human life, and in the future, will make adolescence a place to spur grounding in reaching maturity. Starting from a teenager who grows out of people who depend on a person who is independent, allowing the person whose identity intersect with other adults in style.
