Motor dc transistor

Guys I need some help with a transistor. I am trying to drive a dc motor with a transistor, a very simple circuit. The transistor is a 2N2222A, only when I start the circuit the transistor glows, even if the amps and volts do not exceed the limits of the transistor

What? :sweat_smile:

Draw the circuit and post the photo so that we can see

This should be the correct circuit
