Motivation for students: set goals for studying

To pass exams you should know why you have to study. So, take a few moments to understand the reason behind all of that struggle and hell that you are currently going through. I have never done that, but I suggest you write your reasons on a paper and put it on the wall and remember them every time you feel like slacking off and procrastinating.

Here are some quotes that might put you in the right state of mind for goal-setting:

“The trouble with not having a goal is that you can spend your life running up and down the field and never score.” 
- Bill Copeland

”Vision without action is daydream. Action without vision is nightmare.” 
- Japanese Proverb

“You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.”
- Wayne Gretzky

“The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.” 
- Lao Tzu

“Don’t go through life, grow through life.” 
- Eric Butterworth

“People who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.” 
- Steve Jobs

”Be not afraid of greatness. Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon ‘em.” 
- William Shakespeare

“Some men see things as they are and say why – I dream things that never were and say why not.”
- George Bernard Shaw

”Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great makes you feel that you, too, can become great.” 
- Mark Twain

“The man who has confidence in himself gains the confidence of others.” 
- Hasidic Proverb

“The best way to predict the future is to create it.” 
- Abraham Lincoln
