    Hello Jaywce :)

    Is this sentence intended for an application letter? Some context and background would help us give targeted advice.

    In general, assuming that you intend the sentence to be part of a formal text, I'd just suggest moving the parts of speech and correcting the gender of Motivation:

    Ich hoffe, Sie können meine Motivation sehen/erkennen. (I'd prefer erkennen).

    However, to me this sentence, however we put it, looks like you were doubting the reader's intellectual capacity (doubting that he or she will be able to see your motivation).
