Motivation for Mid-Semester

For most students, the Fall 2012 semester is almost half way over, and after weeks and weeks of classes, homework, studying, and taking exams, feeling tired and overwhelmed is quite common. College can certainly be challenging, and if you’re a non-traditional student juggling a job and/or a family in addition to school, finishing the semester can sometimes seem like too much to bear. We can’t do much to lighten your workload right now, but we can remind you that earning college credit through DSST tests means a college experience that is cheaper, quicker, and ultimately less stressful. We can also reinforce an important principle that will hopefully help you make it through: anything worth having takes hard work to get. Along those lines, here are some motivational quotes we like. We want to share them with you to help motivate you through your mid-semester slump and give you the strength to finish the semester with a bang:

“If it doesn’t challenge you, it doesn’t change you.” --Fred Devito

“I am who I am today because of the choices I made yesterday.” --Eleanor Roosevelt

“When you feel like quitting, think about why you started.” --Anonymous

“The difference between ordinary and extraordinary is that little extra.” --Jimmy Johnson

“Excellence is not a skill. It is an attitude.” --Ralph Marston

“Dreams don’t work unless you do.” --Anonymous
