Hard work always pays off


 "If you aren't finding the time to make the effort, maybe you need to ask yourself why you are not moving forward?"

It might not seem a big deal for many but I recently passed my driving theory test. I had failed it previously by just one point, so I was worried that I was in for the same fate.

This time it was different. This was because I wanted to pass for different reasons. My motivations where my own and I managed my time to make sure I studied.

When you are wanting to meet a goal head on, it will take preparation and it will need effort. The effort will come easily enough if it is something you really want. If you aren't finding the time to make the effort, maybe you need to ask yourself why you are not moving forward?

In the past I was being pestered a lot by others around me to pass my test, I was being told constantly that I needed to drive. So to put the nagging to rest. I started to learn how to drive and I hated it. I put all my pent up frustration that I held towards all nagging into the driving. I wasted a lot money, my time and the driving instructors time because of it. It was not productive. It definitely was not positive. I just didn't feel the need to drive yet.

"I wanted it bad enough, so I made it happen and I am so happy that I did."

I started to think about driving differently. Now I need too, friends are moving further away and opportunities may arrive that I may need to travel for. I now see driving as a positive. It is a step in the right direction.

With anything in life, you have to primarily do it for yourself. Trying for others approval will not get you anywhere. I wanted it bad enough, so I made it happen and I am so happy that I did.

  2. Your blog is so positive and inspiring to read! I'm totally with you on this one - at the minute I'm managing to stay motivated to revise to achieve the grades I want for myself, not for the people that expect it from me. Best way I hope!
