Hey guys! Happy New Year to each and every one of you! This is my first blog post of 2017, I’m really excited to share some new things with you guys this year! It’s exciting for me to be able to open up a lot more.
Okay, so this week I want to talk about motivation. We went back to school on Wednesday, so I’m really motivated to succeed but on the other hand I’m loosing motivation. I know that sounds ridiculous because “how can you ALREADY be unmotivated?!” and then “how can you be motivated and unmotivated at the same time?!” but I just am. There’s no real explanation for it. I’m excited for the new year but I know in three weeks I’m probably going to be super stressed out because of school. It’s just the way things go for me.
I’ve spent a majority of my Christmas break doing coursework, don’t get me wrong, I have had a good time with family and friends, I have had a good break. But there hasn’t really been a real break from school work. I don’t know if that makes sense?
As I realised that I am not alone and that quite a few people I know feel like this too, I wanted to talk about motivation. What better way to kick off the New Year by talking about motivation!
My aim is to stay motivated throughout the whole year. Good things come to those who work hard. We went back for three days and I was already seeing how much hard work can pay off after a while. Things can be tough but they are just temporary problems.
“Dream big, work hard, stay focused and surround yourself with good people.”
I know this blog post is going to be rather short but at the end of the year I am *hopefully* going to be able to look back on it and remember that hard work does pay off no matter how stressful and difficult things can get. You can only ever try your best…
As someone once said, “Hard work pays off in the long run. Procrastination pays off now.”
Here’s my point, to stay motivated ask yourself what you want in the long run. Can it be achieved by working hard now or procrastinating now? Would you rather have to work hard now or work extra hard later because you didn’t work as hard as you could have to begin with?
Okay, so I know this is short but here it is. Once again Happy New Year to everyone, hope you have good health and happiness. I know it’s a Saturday but I haven’t really figured out a schedule for this yet, so until next time… Thank you for reading, have a great week and keep smiling! Much love – Alison xx
