THIS IS WHY YOU FAIL Most Inspirational Motivation
I wanna talk about failure I wanna talk about.
why things go wrong Why you failed to study better and you’re wasting your time because you can learn as much if not more from your failures, your non-starts, your hesitations as you can from your successes.
We think that things happen overnight but they don’t they happen every day, in each passing moment you win or you lose you waste or you create winning or passing an exam or a degree it’s not a one-time thing it’s an everyday thing an every moment thing.
You don’t win once in a while you don’t do things right once in a while you do them right all of the time.
Winning as a result or success excellence they’re all habits.
Your goal is not too big, okay?
you’re just not yet the person you need to be to execute against that and that is absolutely fine.
So you don’t just lose once in a while you don’t make an arrow once in a while you don’t fail an exam one time.
Do you want the secret? It’s called work.
Do not get confused here
You have to work to match the ambition coming out of your mouth.
There’s only one thing that you need to really find and that’s direction.
You need direction in your own direction, not someone else’s direction, not your parent’s direction society’s direction, social media’s direction your own direction.
But what does it actually mean? It’s a big word
Well, it means knowing where you’re numbing yourself or where you’re awakening yourself where you numb yourself off with laziness, sleeping in more than you should scroll through your feed more than you should be distracting yourself more than you should hesitating, procrastinating waiting, waiting again and again until you’ve numbed yourself from reality.
But when you are awakening yourself you know what that feels like because you’re here
reading to this motivational article
you’re seeking direction, you’re setting a clear goal for every single day.
You’re taking trips to the library or the coffee shop the study session after study session you say no to the easy things and yes to the right things.
And if you want a really quick measurement if you want a quick gauge of where you’re at in this spectrum of numbing and awakening yourself just look back.
What did you do today? not a week ago, not two weeks ago but today.
How much direction do you have?
How much clarity do you have?
How many drives do you have?
Were you driven by something? that you planned for and you scheduled or were you reacting to what happened?
Even the way you ended up on this article did you schedule time to watch this or did you just end up here?
Cause if you ended up here, you’re reacting if you planned to be here you’re responding, you’re creating and if you are one of those people or you’re having a moment where
let’s be honest, you’re wasting time.
And it happens to all of us
It’s as simple as, it’s because you didn’t know what you wanted from this moment.
You didn’t prepare for this moment, you didn’t plan for this moment maybe you didn’t even act never forget that you’re either creating your day or your day is being created for you
by your emotions
by somebody else’s agenda
by some youtuber, by some social media post.
There’s only so much time in the day, now let me give you some practical advice and it’s called the Prom Method.
So what is the Prom Method?
What do I mean? these are the four pillars that will help you to get the most out of your study time.
The first one stands for print because if you look at most students in your library
in your coffee shop, in your lecture theatre
in your classroom, you’ll see that
more and more people are using digital devices to increase and enhance their learning and academic experience.
Now, I’m not knocking those tools because they are tools but are they the best tools?
There was a study done at the University of Leicester in England, what they found was that students required more repetition to learn new material if they were reading from a computer screen versus printed material.
So, I want you to ask yourself this question do you learn more effectively when you have something in your hand that you tangibly can feel, touch, highlight, play with or does the computer screen, does that digital screen work for you?
Are you more likely to be distracted when you’re using something digital? or are you more likely to be focused when you’re using a paper version?
The second thing and probably one of the most important relax, take a deep, long, slow breath.
We all know the importance of being relaxed but did you know how it’s a physical thing?
How when you’re stressed you release more cortisol which inhibits the neurons in your brain from connecting, from communicating with each other and so you’re less creative, you’re less focused and you’re less able to think.
Your stress is a physical thing so your job in the Prom Method is to make sure that you set yourself just like concrete sets itself or you set a foundation, that you set for yourself a habit of becoming relaxed.
And it’s a grading, I don’t want you to be so relaxed that you’re watching Netflix again and again and again.
I’m talking about the kind of relaxation that helps you to be productive that helps you to revise, study, learn every single day.
Just like the tuning of a guitar you need to tune your emotions in you need to tune your mind in to the habits that you want to create.
And moving on to the third thing, it’s the one thing we’re living in a time and an age where devices and distractions are everywhere in your lecture theatre, you see it when you’re at the dinner table, you see it when you’re in the classroom, you see it.
Devices and distractions everywhere and these tools start using us instead of us using them.
so the challenge and fight now for you, is one thing choose the one thing the priority for this day feel it, know it, feed it, and start working to that one thing every single day so that like I mentioned before you have the direction that you need.
And the final one is music sets the tone for our moments and we know it because even with these articles that you like to listen to the best ones have the best music and its classical music, 18th century music that has been shown, scientifically proven to engage the parts of your brain that are responsible for two really important things your focus and your memory. So if you ask, if you want to know how to stop wasting time and study more effectively?
Turn the music on and turn the distractions off.
This gym is for your minds steady study so choose the tools, the tone, that’s going to help you the most.
And to round off with just remember this only as high as you reach, can you grow only as far as you seek, can you go only as deep as you can look, can you see and only as much as you can dream, can you be.
So reach high, reach far, go deep and keep dreaming.
