What is the most important quality for learning? From my perspective, what we need are motivation and methods.

Motivation refers to desire and determination in people to be continually interested in and committed to certain aims. It is an indispensable part of learning. If we want to complete heavy school work, motivation is a necessity. Without motivation, it is hard to overcome difficulties. The inventor of the electric bulb, one of the famous scientists in the world, Thomas Edison, is a good case in point. Before the bulb came into being, he had failed thousands of times. With motivation, he finally lit the whole world.

With motivation we also need proper methods to study efficiently. Generally speaking, the more effectively you study, the greater success you will achieve. Method is a great element of learning. Without proper methods, we may go nowhere in our pursuit of success in study.

In a word, motivation and methods play a vital role in successful study. The same is true of other aspects of our life, such as friendship, love and career. As the saying goes:” Motivation is what gets you started. Methods are what helps you keep going.”
