Remember what the late Muhammad Ali once said- "I hated every minute of training, but I said, don’t quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion.” Study hard now and you can live your life the way you want further.
Chase your goal and Shut the mouth of all those who demotivate you and told you that it is hard.
Motivation 2- Reward Yourself
It is one of the best ways to encourage yourself for the study. Set your daily goal and once you achieve that goal, reward yourself.
The goal for the day can be a studying any topic or to solve some set of questions that need to be completed on time. In reward, you can go for a walk, have your favorite dish, listen to your favorite songs, can watch motivational videos etc.
