Will you ACTUALLY be able to cover all the resources mentioned in the Plan?

  • Yes! If you have been consistent in the past few months and are committed to giving it your all now, you have a high chance of meeting the targets.
  • However, even if you’re only able to cover 70-80% of the target, that’s still a great achievement. Keep pushing yourself and stay motivated!
  • Also, you need to do smart work. Introspect and discover what your weaknesses and strengths are, then invest more time in areas where you need to improve.

Things to avoid in the next 3 months:

  • “I-can’t-do-it” Attitude: Stop under-estimating your abilities and yourself. YOU CAN DO IT! As Nike says, “Just Do It!”
  • Worrying about the future: Do not waste time in worrying about the future! It is uncertain! Focus on what you can control: your efforts! Do not fret about the outcomes!
  • Comparing yourself to others: Focus on improving yourself!
  • Negative people or those who doubt you
  • Procrastination: Do not delay! Time flies!
  • Becoming a collector of material from bookshops and telegram channels
  • Fear of Prelims/CSAT: Fear is what you feel, BRAVE is what you DO! Be brave and take action each day to counter the fear!

 

You must have heard that quote: HARDWORK BEATS TALENT WHEN TALENT DOES NOT WORK HARD!

“It’s not all about talent. It’s about dependability, consistency, and being able to improve. If you work hard and you’re coachable, and you understand what you need to do, you can improve.”- Bill Belichick

 

Do not wait for external motivation or inspiration. It does not last. Instead, start building a habit of studying and taking tests in a consistent manner.

“First forget inspiration. Habit is more dependable. Habit will sustain you whether you’re inspired or not. Habit will help you finish and polish your stories. Inspiration won’t. Habit is persistence in practice.”
― Octavia Butler

So, make up your mind NOW and promise yourself that you will give it your ALL for the next 3 months. Do it for yourself. You have waited patiently, worked hard for all these months/years. Do not miss this opportunity. Grab it, use the resources well and march forward towards your dream.
