26 Successful Students Share How They Stay Motivated During The School Year

Remembering how much I hate working in fast food.


College student here,

I remind myself how blessed I am to even be in this position--to be in college, a stepping stone to a great career, a place to think, learn, socialize, and grow, yet still despise it at times and wish I wasn't there.

Here is the question to ask yourself: Where would you be instead? Does the answer to that outweigh the opportunity cost of being in college? If that is so, please do not go to college and pursue this other venture that is clearly more rewarding for you.
