Determination, For My Family's Sake!!!

Dad dropped by today because my relatives from Penang came to find out some information on my hostel. Dad told that he's gonna resign, resign not retired. He's already a retiree and the new boss, putting so much stress on him. I felt sorry for him and I AM sorry to him.

Of all the stuffs and things that I promise/promised, only one thing that I can barely/hardly/NEVER fulfill --- STUDIES.

I always full with passions in the starting but after some time, it started to cool down. I really hate this. In other things, my determination can hardly beaten but not in studies. Can anyone help me out there?

My finals are just 2 weeks away. Actually, the syllabus aren't that heavy since I've taken my Form Six but, I am LAZY/RELUCTANT to revise. Why why why....... I never knew why. Perhaps my friends or anyone from psychology field can help me out with this (FOC can?)?

I'm totally beaten by LAZY WORMS. Beaten to the ground. How well I can do in this final?

Last semester, thanks to Min Ee, her "NOW OR NEVER" helped me out a lot but it seems to be malfunction this semester. In great thirst to find the potion. I can do it right? I am the potion and the antidote didn't I?

I CAN DO IT!!! I WANNA GET SCHOLARSHIP! I DON'T WISH MY DAD TO BEAR SUCH BURDEN ANYMORE!!! May God bless me with strong will and determination. Amitabha!

At some time during your study program you are likely to think "Why am I doing this?", "What am I doing it for?","Life is short and we ought to enjoy", "This is too hard", "I am not enjoying this","People become rich too without proper education". These thoughts are often accompanied by lack of motivation which make it difficult for you to study in an efficient way.To know that you lack motivation in your studies is certainly a great step forward,but you have to take conrete measures to tackle the issue.Firstly,you must focus on your goals in life.Where do see yourself in 10 years time?You need to realized that study is a priority for you right now and get yourself going all the way.Unless you are capable of coming up with an innovation that is going to create a revolutionary breakthrough for years to come like Bill Gates,the best thing you can do right now is to focus on your studies.After attending a few seminars by prominent global entrepreneurs in NUS,I found that they have a common point,"Love what you are doing",so you had better decide which field you are really interested in and enroll in your course of interest.More often than not we take up certain courses due to reasons such as parental pressure,"money" factor,society's perception etc.Sometimes,we might lost our motivation at certain stage in our lives due to problems such as relationship failures,family shortcomings etc.We have to give ourselves sufficient time to find back the "lost" motivation because you certainly have not lost it overnight.Lastly,you have to "dream big" but not dwell in the dream,we have to work towards it at certain point in our lives.Oh ya,I have to add that doing last minute work is never a good move,try to do your revisions consistently and you won't have to cramp everything up in your brains the last minute.Even if you can,the information will only be kept in your "RAM" instead of your "Harddisk".Most subjects require prior knowledge of other subjects and are more or less a continuation of what you have learnt,so it is better to have a long term memory of what you have studied. Study hard and play hard!Cheers!
