When a person has a goal to get a certain profession, he will study to get the necessary knowledge, because he needs it in life, after all, without knowledge he can't cure a man as a doctor, or build a factory, as an engineer. Set a goal for yourself what profession you want to learn - this is your motivation.
Tip 5. Set a goal and evaluate yourself
Make a list of tasks for each day and stick to that list. If you set a goal for today to write an essay, you should do it, or at least use paper writing help. After reaching the point, don't forget to reward yourself, and buy yourself a chocolate bar or go for a walk with a friend. The achieved goal should always be appreciated and rewarded even a simple candy or chocolate bar.
Tip 6. Motivation through order and aesthetics
Try to motivate yourself through order and aesthetics. Clean up your desk, arrange everything nicely and comfortably. Buy new notebooks, pens, pencils. Make yourself cozy on your desk, stick your life goal above your desk, look at it, and strive for it.
Tip 7. Ideal conditions for studying
