Most students can agree that they struggle with working hard and staying focused so they can achieve their goals. There are very few who find what inspires, than take that inspiration and use it to work hard. Whether it’s a reward from your parents, good grades or food, we could all use an inspiring goal.
Seventh grader Ava Allen works hard for the praise of those close to her.
“Making my family proud with my grades inspires me to work hard.”
Though staying focused and working hard is difficult there are a couple of ways we can try and fix this. One way to practice this is to turn off all distractions, and donate all of your attention to a single task at a time. Cell phones, television, or maybe even your siblings distract you so find a quiet place to commit to working hard. The brain works hard to stay focused and complete tasks throughout the day, which means we should also try to work hard.
The hardest part of working hard is not wanting to take the time to do it. Sometimes, even if we have an inspirational goal we just want to give up. It’s o.k. to take a break, overworking yourself isn’t healthy because it causes stress.
Eighth grader Olivia Hume says success drives her to continue to reach her lofty goals.
”I want to do the best I can at achieving my goal, achieving my goal inspires me to work hard.”
Everyone from student to teacher could use an inspirational goal to help them stay focused and work hard. Whether they are small short term goals or larger more thought out ones, having a focal point helps inspire success.
