Are you struggling with studying? Is it the lack of motivation that has you stuck? You’re supposed to be studying for a test but you end up on your phone or you procrastinate. Afterward, you try to get things done but you still don’t feel that motivation, so you abandon what you were doing and go on YouTube.
All this surely sounds familiar to most of us.
However, you can conquer this weakness by reading some motivational quotes that can help get things done.
We have compiled the ten best quotes to help you study.
Never Do Tomorrow What You Can Do Today. Procrastination Is The Thief Of Time.
This quote is for those of you who are productive at unimportant things. You like wasting your time on the things that seem easiest to you but do not add any real value into your life.
To get out of this vicious cycle, you have to stop procrastinating and start doing things as soon as you have the time which is now. Don’t say you will do them later as this will make things much harder for you. Once you get an assignment, act on it immediately. Do not wait for later. Sit down and just start doing it. You will find that once you start, you won’t stop till it’s done.
Push Yourself Because No One Else Is Going To Do It For You.
This is for the students that seem to be lazy in everything. If you’re the type to spend all your day doing nothing then this is for you.
Stop spending all day on the couch, get up and start getting things done as they won’t get done by themselves. Think about the reward that you’ll get after completing the task at hand, let this be your motivation to get things done in the fastest and most effective way possible. If you feel like laziness is creeping back in, do an easy exercise or drink a cup of coffee to get your blood flowing. This will make you active and give you energy.
If It Is Important To You, You Will Find A Way. If Not, You Will Find an Excuse.
This one goes to those of you who are experts in giving excuses. You don’t lack an excuse for anything. No matter how easy the task at hand is, you will find a way to get out of it.
This normally happens because you don’t see how you can benefit from these tasks, and the same goes for studying. You don’t see how getting academic things done will benefit you due to the lack of ambition in the academic field. You don’t see yourself using any of the knowledge acquired at school but this is wrong. Academic achievements will one day be an asset in your life so stop giving excuses and go read that play by Shakespeare.
The Secret To Getting Ahead Is To Get Started.
If you’re the type that likes to win but you also like to procrastinate, or you feel like you’re too late to the race than this is for you.
For you to actually be a competitor, you have to show up and get started. Once you do, it won’t be easy to stop as you will have invested time and energy into the race. They say the journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step. I suggest you start taking those first crucial steps towards success and don’t be afraid to fail as this is where your lessons will come from. So, go and get started.
Just Believe In Yourself. Even if You Don’t, Pretend You Do And At Some Point, You Will.
To a student that has a hard time believing in themselves. Take the time to look at yourself, what don’t you have that the other person has? With your current resources, can’t you still make it?
If not, then fake it till you make it, right? The minute you portray an image of self-confidence, you will notice that the people around end up believing in you. They say a lie repeated long enough becomes the truth, so go on and lie to yourself and to others up until this lie becomes the truth that reigns supreme amongst all truths.
The Expert In Anything Was Once A Beginner.
There are those of us that want to skip the process of being a novice and want to go straight to being the master. This can’t happen. It takes time for good things to happen.
If you want to be an expert one day, then you should start now as a beginner, and the earlier the better. You will have the strength and zeal to achieve the greatness that you so desperately crave. So, don’t worry about being an expert today, focus on being a beginner.
It Always Seems Impossible till It’s done.
This for those who believe impossible isn’t possible. Whenever you’re about to start something, all you see is this unmovable mountain.
Look past all the hurdles and see the rewards that await you once you overcome this. Think of the satisfaction that you’ll get and let that help you take down the mountain that’s in your way.
Don’t be afraid to do the impossible as this will build your confidence. Whatever that may seem impossible now, will feel easy along the way and the more you work on it, the easier it becomes. You will be gaining lots of experience and all this will work in your favor in the long run.
I’m Not Telling You It’s Going to Be Easy, I’m Telling You It’s Going to Be Worth It.
This is for those that don’t see the end of the road and want to give up. Nothing that’s worth it will come easy. You have to work towards it, no matter the hurdles that you have to go through along the way. It is the journey that makes the destination much more rewarding.
So, when you feel like quitting, remember that the challenges you’re facing are part of the success that you will achieve, so don’t give up! Nothing comes easy but it’s all worth it if you put in the much-needed effort. Don’t worry about how hard it will be, focus on the fruits of the tree that you’re planting.
A Year from Now, You’ll Wish You Had Started Today.
If you always think you have the time or it’s too late for you than this quote fits you perfectly. Start thinking how it would be a year from now if you start now. You would be very far, wouldn’t you? You would be a year ahead; you won’t be where you were last year.
So, start thinking about the future and get started. Start working now!
Don’t worry about who’s ahead. However, if you don’t start, you won’t ever catch up to them. Therefore, start now when you have the time and energy.
Strive For Progress Not Perfection.
For those of you who are chasing perfection, here is a shocker, you will not find it! Strive for progress. Work towards growing at a steady pace, always move forward. This way, you can be assured of progress.
If you decide to look for perfection, it will mislead you and you will end up moving backward.
Always try to be better than you were yesterday. This will ensure that you grow on an everyday basis and things will become much easier for you as you’ll be getting better with each day.
Forward always, no matter what.
Whenever you are struggling to study keep, in mind the long-term goal that you had set for yourself. Some students keep a constant reminder of their goals in their immediate surrounding by writing them down on a piece of paper, notebook, or saving it as the screen saver of their phones or laptops. This way, whenever they feel like giving up, they are instantly reminded of what they stand to gain in the long run.
Admittedly, studying can be hard, even boring at times. Especially so when you’re not interested in whatever it is that’s being taught or you just lack motivation. Quotes can be a beneficial source of inspiration.
