M4 was not convinced at this reply.
M4: if my son wants to join army, can you motivate him and how will you.
Me : yes sir. First he must think that his choice is very nice and you stand with your son. So that he might feel good. And then he must do whatever is required in order to qualify for army entrance, but he must enjoy that process as that enjoying the process factor is key to success.
