CheckPoint: Personal Constructs I remember reading about Olympic skater Joannie Rochett. Joannie's mother passed away unexpectedly days before her  Olympic competition. Joannie chose to remain at the Olympics and compete, and on the same night skated a personal best  score. As of the time of this, she ranked third and was in competition for a medal. The crowd was profoundly moved by her  performance. In the face of tragedy, she skated the performance of a lifetime.   Two questions are strong in my mind. First, what motivates an individual to the extremes required by the Olympic's physical  and mental demands of perfection? Humanistic theory suggests that individuals always seek out their highest potential  unless otherwise encumbered (ie. by life's problems and limitations, being financial, educational, etc.) So, it would seem that  Joannie was an individual of extremely high athletic potential, who was luckily unencumbered in her drive to pursue it.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
