Just looking for a springboard to get started on an essay

I am looking for a summary describing the link between my status as an adult learner and my decision to enter graduate school to obtain a master's degree. In terms of Generativity vs stagnation views.

I'm usual in favor of a direct approach and I try not to be wordy, so what about:

You are pursuing a master's degree because stopping at simply being an adult learner makes you feel stagnate.  Instead, you'd like to cultivated generativity by putting back into society, the future, someone else, by getting a higher degree and putting it to use.  You are not obtaining a Master's degree to continue your education for selfish purposes (stagnation).  Instead, you understand it is necessary to give you an opportunity to use your creativity and intellect as a means to contribute to your world.

How does that sound?
