This post is for those who want an extra edge to their studying. It can be used by anyone wanting to study and is used especially by those competing academically with others.
Motivation is the reason to do, to act. If Bill Gates never had the ambition to create Microsoft, and implement it, it wouldn’t be here. If Messi never had the dream to play soccer, he’d never have scored goals. If Sam Witwicky of Transformers never had the motivation to help Optimus Prime (well, the world would have ended).
Your motivation is your single biggest reason (or reasons) to study. It is the reason to put the book in your hands, study, attend class, do homework… and sometimes to put in that extra little effort for an assignment. Your motivation is the single biggest reason you do work. If you really had absolutely no motivation to study, you wouldn’t. You wouldn’t (to use the image) work ‘late into the night’. Your motivation is what inspires you to do the work.
Without motivation you wouldn’t do the work. If you don’t already get zero in every subject because of not attending class, doing any assignments, or writing any tests and exams; you probably have some motivation to study.
The more powerful, and powerfully-personal, your reason is to study, the more likely you’ll actually enjoy the study, and the easier it’ll be to get yourself to study, and – by the way – remember.
Motivation is your single most important reason to study.
Find it, make it powerful, and use it.
