Motivating Yourself

Hey everyone!

Today I spent some time talking with one of my close friends about our motivations and goals after graduation; as my second year is coming to a close I find myself thinking about what’s in store for me in these last 2 years of my degree. Our conversation empowered me, as it reminded of the reasons for which I am continuously pushing myself in my life and in my education. Motivation can be a hard thing to muster up especially during exam time and we can all sometimes enter a ‘slump’ from which we feel it is hard to come out of. Motivation can come from many places, mine recently came from the conversation I had with my friend, but it also comes from my family, quotes from people I look up to, images of the things I strive for in life and even videos! I decided to attach my 3 favorite motivational videos that I keep in my bookmarks and frequently go back to when I feel I need that extra bit of motivation. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do and have a look as there are many others that may motivate you more than the one’s I have included below. Find what works for you, that is the most important thing. Once you’ve captured that feeling, that energy, nothing will be able to stop you. Happy studies!
