You started the semester charged up and ready to make honor roll. You’re putting in extra time on your homework and even gave up TV and texting on school nights. But even though you’re working hard and you’ve improved your study habits, maybe your grades aren’t showing your extra effort—yet. It’s easy to get frustrated when progress seems slow.
One way you can stay motivated and on track while you work toward your goals is to find strength in numbers. Form a study group with friends or classmates. Even if you’re not working on group projects, studying with your classmates can be healthy motivation for all of you to improve your grades and get ahead at school—together!
Also, speak with your teacher. He or she is likely to have a different—and possibly more encouraging—view of your progress and can help you fine-tune your efforts.
Learning is cumulative. Little successes will add up over time to be big successes. Part of achieving long-term goals is finding the internal motivation to stay on-task despite challenges.
