“Invest in yourself, in your education. There’s nothing better.” ~ Sylvia Porter
The following is a guest post from Khurram Zahid.
Motivating yourself for studies is quite a difficult task, and when you are working as well with your education, you find very less time to study. In this day and age, any type of information whether it is academic or non academic is just a click away. Just type a keyword related to your information requirement in any search engine and you will have much good material to read.
Besides all the facilities available at your finger tips, it’s still difficult to motivate yourself for study. Getting admission at any good university, taking classes and so on is the easiest part, but when it comes to study at home, you can’t find yourself motivated to open your books and study further. In this article I would like to suggest some points that will make you to keep motivated towards studies.
Think about your Big Goal
You know for sure that you are studying for a purpose; you have got admission at a good institute, you are paying a high amount in the form of fee, buying expensive books, everything you are doing is for a reason, but when you need to study, you forget the purpose and reason for your education.
Hence, whenever you find yourself loose and less motivated, start to think about your big goal. What you will achieve if you study hard now, what position you will get in the society, and what financial reward are waiting for you after you complete your studies successfully.
You are investing your Money and Time, Think
Time and Money both are considered as the most valuable resources in this world. And when you get admission in any institute or university for higher education, you actually agree to invest these resources to achieve your goals.
Getting professional education, in these days and age, is not inexpensive; you need to pay a fortune and need to spend years for gaining invaluable education.
When you find any excuse for not studying, think about your investment; think about the money you have been paying, which you or your parents have earned after working hard. With these thoughts in mind, you will automatically get motivated to study.
Knowledge is Power, Remember!
We all know, as our parents and teaches told us in our childhood, knowledge is power. This philosophy is still applicable, even knowledge has now become more powerful in this information age. You need to focus more on your studies to become competent and knowledgeable in your institute, in your job and in your circle of friends.
Who doesn’t want to become well appreciated in the community, and when you are equipped with diversified knowledge and information, everybody will find you as a thought leader in the community.
A very knowledgeable person once said “no pain, no gain” and it’s true. Little pain with studying, leads to a greater reward in the future. So, keep yourself motivated for the studies.
