How I stay motivated ☘️
Don’t you always try to study but end up scrolling on your phone for the entire day? Yeah, me too. That’s why :
I’m sharing with you how I stay motivated!
Find your motivation
Okay, I know this one’s a bit obvious, but so many people miss the importance of it. Finding your motivation helps you push forward, to endure all those struggles until you finally achieve your goal.
You want to be the top scorer? For what? What do you hope to achieve by being top scorer? How will it help you?
Because we don’t have specific goals, we don’t have enough conviction to finish what we want to.
Another thing that tons of people miss is the outcome. I haven’t seen anyone else talk about this, but visualising your ideal outcome gives you a great boost of motivation too.
💫[Here’s the formula to find your motivation] 💫
Have a specific goal.
(If you don’t have a vague goal yet.)
Where do you see yourself in five years time?
What will make you happy?
What do you like about life? How can you improve those things?
What do you dislike about life? How can you improve those things?
(For those who already have a goal in mind)
What do you want to do it for?
What do you hope to achieve by doing it?
How will doing this help you?
How will doing this make you happy?
What will you feel and do once you have accomplished this?
2. Visualise your desired outcome
Where will you be?
What will you be doing?
What do you see?
How do you feel?
How will people around you react?
3. Put it into action.
Once you have your goals and desired outcome in mind, motivation will come to you immediately. What you need to do is to act on it.
Ask yourself : how will I accomplish my goal?
And build an actionable plan around it.
Make time for it in your schedule
Prepare yourself for the sacrifices you will have to make
I hope this helped you! 📚 Feel free to ask for specific study tips!

Welcome to another one of my studyblr challenges! I’ve gained a lot more followers on this channel since the last time I did one of these so I wanted to say hello and I like to give people the opportunity to connect through events like these. Looking back at my last challenge there were actually a lot of very awesome people participating and I’m hoping this time around will be the same! Below you’ll find some rules, dates for when it begins and ends and the questions for each day of the challenge. These are usually pretty laidback so feel free to diverge from whatever rules I put out there. Can’t wait to meet new people and hear about what is going on in everyone’s lives!
As always, you’re more than welcome to start or stop this challenge at any time. The numbers added will correspond with when I’m tracking tags for this challenge, but they can be adjusted, re-used and re-done to your heart’s content. That being said, if you want to do it with a group and hopefully make some friends along the way, I’ll be officially tracking or starting this challenge on October 14th, 2022. The challenge has 29 questions, and with one question per day, the challenge will end on November 12th, 2022. Assuming I just counted that right. However, if you’re like me and like to answer a couple questions every couple of days, that ending day may vary for you. No worries! That’s often what happens with my posts as well.
Just like that time, I’ll be making a separate post for the taglist for this challenge. If you want to be on the taglist, just reblog this post or otherwise show interest in doing this challenge! And if you want to be added or removed you can always shoot me an ask (don’t DM me, I don’t check or answer those to get to it in a timely fashion). The taglist shows you who is hoping to participate and hopefully it’ll help people to connect with like-minded individuals!
When this challenge starts, I’ll be tracking the tag #tranquilfallbuddies so please use it when you’re posting about this challenge so I can see your lovely answers! I really bank on people using these tags to see interest in these challenges and whatever you guys have to say so feel free to use them to send me feedback or whatever you want along with your posts that are challenge related.
So, in my last challenge I had people start each day by setting themselves an intention, or a goal, or just by stating their mindset for that day and a lot of people seemed to like that, so I'm bringing it back here! So, every day (or for every post you make for the challenge), an additional question is added where you can simply fill in one of the choices here:
1. Today, I am grateful for ________. (Studies have shown that stating what you’re grateful for in each day can actually improve your mood and outlook on life. Give it a try if you want!)
2. Today, I choose ______. (Inspired by Yoga with Adrienne, whom I still admire very much).
3. Today, my goals are _________. (what do you want to accomplish today?)
You can switch up your choices too, or you can fill out two or all three of them if you want to! Just pick one, two or three that you feel suits you best for that post. Or, you can make your own if you want!
The beginning of the challenge, woohoo you did it! A lot of the time starting is the hardest part. So, tell us a little bit about yourself! What are you studying currently, what where are you in your life right now? Are you happy with where you are right now? What are your goals in doing this challenge?
