Setting goals is the first step a person can take in order to gain the motivation they need to become a better student. A goal is something a person is wishing accomplish in their life. There are two types of goals, short term and long term. Short- term goals are usually less than six months. A student should always set short-term goals for themselves in the beginning of a semester so they can work hard for the next couple of months to achieve them. A long-term goal is what a student is strives for in their more distant future, for example a career path. Setting short-term and long-term goals early on in life is positive tool in order for a student to be successful in their future. Another method to gain motivation is to create a dream career. A student attends college with hopes of receiving a degree that will allow them to specialize in a future job market. A student’s major should be their passion. If an individual majors in something they despise, they will eventually loose their motivation to perform well in their studies. Striving for a career that you love is a great motivation tool that will inspire students to do well in school. Working for a dream career also allows a student to major in something they are passionate about and keeps them motivated 2
