All of us want to become a success, not just in class, but in life as well! The only way of getting somewhere is by getting up and going there.
Here are a few tips to show you the way
Stop being nice to yourself.
Motivation means action and actions cultivate results. In life, some actions fail to bring you the results you want. You can either choose to lie down or you can rise to the occasion and go get what you deserve in life. If you choose to wait for the right timing, or for the right opportunity, you will always be waiting. Get out there, challenge yourself, set goals and smash them.
Keep track of important dates & deadlines.
Many students try to keep track of important dates by memory only. Needless to say, these students frequently forget important tests and deadlines. This causes unnecessary panic and confusion. There’s no need to stress yourself out. Simply add deadlines to your diary on an app on your phone. You’ll never be late for a deadline again.
Get rid of stagnating thoughts.
Thoughts influence feelings and feelings determine the quality of your work. Discard all negative feelings, build yourself up and focus on positive thoughts and goals.
“If you are not willing to risk the usual, you will have to settle for the ordinary.” Jim Rohn
Focus on commitment rather than motivation.
Only you can determine how successful you are going to be. Motivation is key. Ask yourself just how motivated you are. If your goals and dreams are important enough, you will never give up.
Always take advantage of any new learning opportunities that are presented to you. Broaden your horizons and meet new people. Open yourself up to new and exciting challenges. Your twenties represent the only time that you will have the chance to indulge freely in your hobbies and connect with people from a spectrum of diverse educational and cultural backgrounds.
Make the journey fun.
Enjoy life! The minute you make it serious, there’s a big chance you will start overthinking and you will lose perspective. Take risks and never do something that does not bring you joy.
