Agony Al: Motivating Yourself to Study and Succeed
2 min read
This week, Agony Al shares his advice on how to find motivation when times get tough... Al, I'm struggling to find time or the motivation to revise for my SAT exam, I don't like exams in the first place which may be a factor, but with school work and training it's hard to find time, and when I get time I don't use it productively. Help! Cheers, Jord Hey Jord, I don’t think anyone likes exams but I’m afraid they have to be done. Obviously your main problem is motivation. Whenever I’m struggling for motivation I watch this video - "Secret to Success” by Eric Thomas, talking to high school/college kids about: success, motivation, time management, studying for classes, athletics training and money etc... Also, the great Muhammad Ali once said - “I hated every minute of training, but I said, Don't quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion”...so basically, work hard, study, and suffer your exams now, and you’ll be rewarded for the rest of your life. Hope this helps, Al
