How to Motivate Yourself to Study
Studying can be one of life’s most boring and mundane activities. In fact, the very
nature of studying goes against the basic human desire to maximize pleasure but here
are some basic truths that will help you not to put to waste your study:
1. Remind Yourself of Your Purpose – What are your goals in life? Where do you see
yourself 5, 10,or even 20 years down the road? The time that you spend studying now
will help to make your future dreams and aspirations a reality. Whether you are
working towards a degree, a special skill, or some type of personal enrichment,
the act of studying is like a bridge between where you are now and
where you want to be in the future!
2. Realize Knowledge is Power – A well-educated person is a powerful person.
Knowledge is priceless. A well-educated, knowledgeable person is a person
who is better able to navigate and excel within the world around him/her.
Think about how much more knowledge and ability you are gaining each time
you sit down to study!
3. Dare Yourself to Succeed – Make it a point to dare yourself to surpass any
real or imagined barriers that have been standing in your way. Personal achievement
and fulfillment are wonderful things; allow yourself to do the things that can only contribute
to your personal achievement and fulfillment – like studying!
4. Make a Decision – The difference between a mediocre result and an extraordinary
result is more often than not related to effort. Do you want to be a mediocre student
or person, or do you want to rise high and sail the heights? Forcing yourself to sit down and
study, even when you don’t feel like it, is a personal achievement.
