SEEKAPOR | an Educational Companion


Being a student is overwhelming and tough. We are just two weeks into the new term but there are some students struggling to get it all in. And it keeps getting worse with project works, homework, mental, quizzes, spellings and extracurricular activities.

Sometimes it gets so overwhelming that you want to quit and you start to wonder if the whole education thing is worth all the attention given to it especially because there are people who have been well schooled who are struggling through life.

You also do not know who to talk because then everyone starts to think you are lazy, un-dedicated or not ambitious enough. So most often, students going through a bad time academically tend to bottle it all up and pretend all is well. It affects their grades and output and even their attitude towards school.

Aside talking to a course advisor, teacher or an adult who will listen to you without being judgemental and frustrated with your complains, you can read some motivational quotes to ginger yourself up.

But do not be caught up in the heat of things to think that education is overrated, valueless or not important in the steps you take towards success.

Here are some quotes to read during such low moments:

  • “Develop success from failures. Discouragement and failure are two of the surest stepping stones to success.” – Dale Carnegie
  • “Success doesn’t come to you, you’ve got to go to it.” – Marva Collins
  • “Successful and unsuccessful people do not vary greatly in their abilities. They vary in their desires to reach their potential.” – John Maxwell
  • “Success means having the courage, the determination, and the will to become the person you believe you were meant to be.” – George Sheehan
  • “To be successful you must accept all challenges that come your way. You can’t just accept the ones you like.” – Mike Gafka
  • “It’s not whether you get knocked down, it’s whether you get back up.” – Vince Lombardi

While you read these quotes, kindly recognize that these motivational quotes can be sources of guidance during your times of need as an academic and can motivate you in times of distress. Success is non-finite and so is failure. It is the kind of motivation you allow during those moments that determines what you become. Some students listen to motivation that tells them some people made it without education and therefore give up. Others read motivational quotes as the above and are motivated to say through till the end. All the best.
