Steps that help to Get Motivated to Study Hard.

Study motivation is a simple thing, people don’t understand it for different reasons. We have published few short stories for students along with a collection of great videos that can act as motivation for studying.

They can help students in many different ways. Now, lets talk about few best practices that can help students to study and actually help them stay motivated to study.

Understand the Problem and Solve it.

The first and foremost reason why people fail at studies is because they don’t have a plan. You’ve got to have a plan to solve problems that stops your motivation for studying.

First, you have to think about the things you want to achieve. Let’s call it A+ grade in your final exam. Lets call it Wish/Goal.

Now think about things that can happen if you achieve that A+ grade after one year. Lets call it, a bike from your dad or whatever. Lets call it an Outcome.

Now think about the obstacles that are stopping you from achieving your goals. Things like, games, TV or whatever. Lets call it Obstacles.

And finally, we get down to a point where we actually do the plan. This part is vital. Now that you have your goals set clear, the outcome of the goal and the obstacles its time for you to make a plan that would prevent the obstacles from stopping you in achieving your goal. Now, that is how you help yourself get motivation for studying.

The full concept is an abstraction model derived from the following video.

Study Motivation – Why to read?

An old farmer lived on a farm in the mountains with his young grandson. Each morning Grandpa was up early sitting at the kitchen table reading his book. One day the grandson asked, “Grandpa! I try to read the book just like you but I don’t understand it, and what I do understand I forget as soon as I close the book. What good does reading the book do?”

The grandfather quietly turned from putting coal in the stove and replied, “Take this coal basket down to the river and bring me back a basket of water.”

The boy did as he was told, but all the water leaked out before he got back to the house. The grandfather laughed and said, “You’ll have to move a little faster next time,” and sent him back to the river with the basket to try again. This time the boy ran faster, but again the basket was empty before he returned home.

Out of breath, he told his grandfather that it was impossible to carry water in a basket, and he went to get a bucket instead. The old man said, “I don’t want a bucket of water; I want a basket of water. You’re just not trying hard enough,” and he went out the door to watch the boy try again.

At this point, the boy knew it was impossible, but he wanted to show his grandfather that even if he ran as fast as he could, the water would leak out before he got back to the house. The boy again dipped the basket into the river and ran hard, but when he reached his grandfather the basket was again empty. Out of breath, he said, “See Grandpa, it’s useless!”

“So you think it is useless?” the old man said, “Look at the basket.” The boy looked at the basket and for the first time realized that the basket was different. It had been transformed from a dirty old coal basket and was now clean, inside and out.

Son, that’s what happens when you read the book. You might not understand or remember everything, but when you read it, you will be changed, inside and out!!!
