1. We often feel apathetic when we’ve picked the wrong goals or when have no goals, or direction for our life. So, look at what inspires you, or makes you feel alive.

2. Stop listening to others, and their views on what’s important. Success is doing what’s important to YOU.

3. Try to think of some small action that improves the way you feel – and just do one small thing, and note how good it makes you feel!

4. Look for someone who could function as a role model for you – who didn’t have advantages but made something of life.

5. Visualise how great you’ll feel if you work for success, and get what matters to you, and have an awesome life.

1. Start early. Don’t leave studying to the last minute as cramming doesn’t really work. Preparing well in advance leaves you with time to ask questions and review topics you don’t fully understand.

2. Plan and organise your study time. Decide what you will do, in what order, and by what date.

p>3. Have an area that you designate specifically for studying. Don’t do anything else there. Keep all your notes, textbooks, materials etc in that area.

4. Study something each day – but allow yourself one whole day off a week. That way, you stay on top of your work without feeling bogged down and overwhelmed.

5. Make your own notes; rewrite material you’ve studied using your own words. Doing that, will help to consolidate your learning.

6. Cover up material you’re studying and try to summarise it, or to paraphrase it.

7. Don’t review material you know already. Assign your time to work that you still find challenging.

1. Simplify – your time, your stuff, your social life.

. Live in the moment.

3. Practice gratitude.

4. Take control of the thoughts that pull you back into the past.

5. Stop the anxious thoughts about “what if" and “what next”.

. Practice getting comfortable with saying no.

7. Don’t worry about others, and what they think of you.

8. Do your best, then relax. Try to enjoy the day.

1. Take some time out to recuperate. You can’t keep going if you’re running on empty.

2. Take a step back to try to gain a new perspective – as sometimes we can’t see the woods for the trees.

3. Attempt to take stock of the current situation. Evaluate what you really want and need.

4. Try to re-evaluate your current strategy. What things are working and what things should you change?

5. Don’t be afraid to change direction. Sometimes that can open up new possibilities.

6. Push through the slump, and the discouragement. If you keep on going, you will get there in the end.

Unsuccessful people make decisions based on their current situations. Successful people make decisions based on where they want to be.

The best way to get things done is simply to begin.

1. Eliminate noise and other distractions from your environment. It takes approximately 15 minutes to reach a place of focused concentration. Thus, constant interruptions will stop you reaching that place.

2. Deliberately structure your environment so that the focus is clearly on studying – and not on doing, and seeing, other things. That may mean changing the room you work in, moving your desk, and so on.

3. Clarify your goals for each piece of work. If you don’t know what you’re doing, or you’re hoping to achieve, you’ll likely go in circles, and simply waste your time.

4. Break large areas of study down into smaller sections, and then plan how you’re going to work through each of these.

5. Set reasonable time limits for each portion of the task – and also for completing the final project. That should help to stop you wasting time on needless details, from wandering down blind alleys, and from procrastinating.

6. Be clear about the requirements for each task. For example, what are the guidelines you have to follow? What standard or quality of work is expected? How detailed does your knowledge have to be? If you’re writing as assignment, how long should it be, and what style and format is required?

7. Isolate yourself. Often, it is best if we lock ourselves away, and avoid other people, when we really need to work. Find a place to hide away, or put a sign or your door – but refuse to talk to anyone until the work is done!

1. Plan your day in advance. That means you can get up and get started right away instead of frittering away time.

2. Decide on your priorities, and do the most important things first.

3. Also, do the hardest task first. Otherwise, they will niggle at you constantly and slowly drain away your energy.

4. Avoid multi-tasking when you’re working on something important.

5. However, it’s good to multitask when we’re doing menial, repetitive and boring tasks.

6. Ditch requests and tasks that are unimportant, and a total waste of time.

7. Commit to NOT procrastinating. Ask a friend to keep you accountable.

8. Be organised. This includes engaging in advanced planning; knowing what you need for the task; having everything you need close at hand; bundling similar tasks together; and working in a relatively tidy and clutter-free environment.

9. Cut out distractions and avoid time wasters.

10. Know what your most productive time of day is and treat that as a sacrosanct period for working.

11. Get into the habit of shutting off racing, distracting and negative thoughts. This is a crucial form of self-discipline.

12. Break large tasks down into smaller sub-tasks – and set achievable deadlines for these.

1. Go-getters are people who believe in themselves, and this causes others to believe in them as well.

2. Go-getters are determined and passionate. Their enthusiasm is attractive and contagious.

3. Go-getters are persistent despite the obstacles. Each time they are knocked down they get back up and try again.

4. Go-getters are inventive, creative and resourceful. They think outside the box and love to generate ideas.

5. Go-getters are proactive and like to confront problems. They see it as a challenge, and a way to get ahead.

6. Go-getters are adaptive, and are highly flexible. If one way doesn’t work then they will try a different way.

7. Go-getters are great dreamers who also set clear goals. They know where they are going and they`re focused on that goal.

1. Make a genuine commitment to being a disciplined person.

2. Be honest about your weaknesses, distractions, and any habits that might knock you off your course.

3. Make a realistic plan. Write it down, or share it with a friend who will help you to be accountable.

4. Design your day to avoid those temptations that will likely undermine your self discipline.

5. If necessary, change your routine.

6. Reward yourself for small steps in the right direction.

7. Although you are aiming to make change a habit, accept that there are likely to be times when you fail – and if you do, just move on as you can always start again.
