You know when people say, “College is the best four years of your life,” they actually mean “College can be absolute hell and then it's over.”
It’s easy to get into the funk where we lack motivation, confidence, and drive. Sometimes we lack even getting out of bed to go to class… especially if it’s a night class. When you need a little push to get you through the end of the semester, keep these quotes close to your heart.
“Do something now; your future self will thank you for later” –Unknown
College is made to test your limits, your coffee intake, and mostly designed with your future in mind. Take a new class, learn a new language, travel abroad, do something now that makes a difference for you later.
“You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream” –C.S. Lewis
It’s never too late to change majors, or to add another degree, shit it’s not too late to get your Master’s or PhD. Education will always better you, and let you dream bigger.
“The ones who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.” –Unknown
If you dream about how to make a difference in your community, country, or world, never think your work is too small.
“The most wasted of days is the one without laughter.” – E.E. Cummings
Don’t take college all that serious, yes your grades are important, but so is your sanity. Laugh a little, go to the lounge today and watch that crappy movie during your break, laugh.
“Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.” –Winston Churchill
Smile, be grateful and don’t forget that this journey is not going to be short, 4 years fly by but this is preparing you for the rest of your life.
“Don’t go around saying the world owes you a living. The world owes you nothing. It was here first.” –Mark Twain
Life isn’t about getting handouts, no one in the real world gives a shit about what you have going on, or what your life was like before you got there. Remember that. Work hard, then work harder.
“Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.” –Thomas A. Edison
Do you think we would have anything in this life if we only tried just once? Do you think it took Steve Jobs one try to make an Iphone? Do you think it only took NASA one try to make a rocket to go to space? Keep trying, never give up.
“If you don’t go after what you want, you’ll never have it. If you don’t ask, the answer is always no. If you don’t step forward, you’re always in the same place.” –Nora Roberts
You have to work hard, ask for what you are wanting, and start your journey.
“There are far, far better things ahead than any we leave behind.” –C.S. Lewis
Think about when you left high school, what did you leave behind? Now think about where you are now in college, how far you have come, and what is ahead.
“Believe in yourself and all that you are. Know that there is something inside you that is greater than any obstacle.” –Christian D. Larson
The first step to doing anything great is believing in yourself, don’t be so hard on yourself and do your best. Everything will work itself out if they don’t pan out the way you want them to.
