concept: I am doing something that fulfills me and makes me genuinely happy, my life is filled with interesting people and projects. I feel at home everywhere in the world, and every day provides me with new opportunities and chances.
1. Remind yourself that some day you will have to show your report card to someone important.
Such as admission staff, employers, business partners, your future spouse or your children. Your grades do not speak about yourself, but imagine how great your odds would be to be accepted in your dream college or employed by a big company, or how proud and motivated your children will be. This is a great way to stay motivated throughout your school years.
2. Make a list of all the things and perks you will get if you get good grades and continue studying.
I’m not saying you only need good grades to be successful in life, but it sure helps! You can either use your bullet journal or a piece of paper to pin in your cork board, or whatever suits you best. Some examples would be: high income, a low stress life, a greater chance to get a scholarship, motivation, a dream job. And keep these “goals” in mind.
3. Stay positive
Got a bad grade? That’s okay! We all fail at times, that doesn’t mean you’re a bad student. Study harder next time and you will do just fine! Keep a positive mindset and don’t over stress, you got this, you’re smart and you’re working hard, don’t ever let anyone tell you otherwise.
4. Keep your study space and room tidy at all times
Might sound silly, but making your bed right after waking up everyday helps overall productivity, and cleaning your room and organising your clothes, shoes, scarves, makeup, and whatever else you have will too. Having a nice and clean study space is key. It doesn’t have to be an astonishingly and aesthetically arranged white desk, it could even be the living room table! But keep it clean and keep all your school supplies close by. The feeling of a clean, nice study space and room will keep you motivated and ready to do your hw or study for a test.
Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people, who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.
You can’t connect the dots looking forward you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something: your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. Because believing that the dots will connect down the road will give you the confidence to follow your heart, even when it leads you off the well worn path.
