Hey could you please show me what the circuit I will need to do to control one DC motor that needs to have variable speed and also be able to run backwards if possible? I looked at the example and I told me to come here for advice on the schematics. A little list of what I will need would be good to thanks a million

I don't think you connected the grounds, Dave.

You need to search for H-bridge circuits.
You haven't told us anything about the DC motor, which could be a phone vibra or a diesel truck starter, so a better answer isn't possible.

Here is a link with schematics and example arduino code http://proto-pic.co.uk/h-bridge-motor-driver-1a/.  This will drive motors that require up to 1A.
