Brain Power and Motivation
My current situation - first floor, central library, listening to acoustic pop on spotify (great study playlist btw!). I’m sitting with a khaki beanie on my head because it was freezing when I walked here, but now I can’t take it off because I have lines on my forehead - aah embarrassing - I’m having a study break and was thinking about a blog I wanted to write! I’ve been a little slack with the "every week" blog posts and wanted to get something out there! So here’s the first one of the few that will be coming soon ..
I had my first exam today, it actually went well which was a pleasant surprise! I am feeling pretty motivated to study this year, which is slightly weird! Usually I get to this part of the semester and have ZERO motivation, but hey, I’m not complaining .. I’m totally embracing it!
But for those of you that are perhaps questioning your degree choice because of incredibly hard exams coming up, or the lack of motivation to study! Here are some motivational quotes that might make you smile and maybe give you a little kick up the booty :
For the "Queens of Procrastination" this one is for you!
PUSH YOURSELF, BECAUSE NO ONE ELSE IS GOING TO DO IT FOR YOU!
IF IT IS IMPORTANT TO YOU, YOU WILL FIND A WAY. IF NOT, YOU WILL FIND AN EXCUSE
These next two are good ones for me! Believing in myself and that I can do it, is a constant work in progress … the mean girl is in my head is pretty good at self doubt especially over exam time!
Just believe in yourself! Even if you don’t, pretend that you do and at some point, you will!
Remembering that failure isn’t the end of the world is so important!
DOUBT KILLS MORE DREAMS THAN FAILURE EVER WILL”
Here’s one that you will have all heard , but super true:
IT ALWAYS SEEMS IMPOSSIBLE UNTIL ITS DONE.
(Even if this means getting out of bed earlier in the morning to get to the library hehe.. feels impossible in this cold, I feel ya sister, but it can be DONE!!)
IM NOT TELLING YOU
ITS GOING TO BE EASY,
IM TELLING YOU ITS
GOING TO BE WORTH IT
It can be so easy to see someone sitting at the library all day or telling you they have been at the library all day, and thinking you aren’t working as hard as they are. BUT, for all you know they might have been sitting on their phone, or watching movies all day, you really never know ..
IT DOESN’T MATTER WHAT OTHERS ARE DOING, IT MATTERS WHAT YOU ARE DOING!
.. so focus on you and what you can do!
And because I’m a nerd at heart - and I love Harry Potter, I'll leave you with this one:
“STUDY LIKE GRANGER”
For those that don’t watch Harry Potter, (WATCH it) Hermione Granger is like a total babe and academic! Underneath her wit and “know it all attitude”, there is a great fear of failure within Hermione but she works insanely hard! Her work ethic is so admirable, have the study ethic of Granger and just get studying!
Believe in yourself! And just
do your best, thats all you can
ask of yourself!
Sending lots of brain power and study wishes to everyone else out there going through exams at the moment
Love and Health,
