you have an opportunity right now that you won't have a few years from now this

is an opportunity of a lifetime your family are counting on you to study hard

your friends are counting on you to study hard and maybe you don't realize

it yet but your future self is counting on you to study hard and the goal is not

to keep studying until you're contained the idea is not to keep studying until

you become satisfied with your grades you should never be satisfied you should

always be striving for better because the day you become content with your

grades that's the day that you stop evaluating yourself that's the day you

stop growing that's the day that the person trying to catch you will catch

you you have to take advantage of the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that you

have right now you don't have to be the most talented or the wisest or the

smartest or the wealthiest you don't have to be the most intelligent to get

to the top but you've got a study you have to out study everyone your

classmates might come from money they might have parents that own businesses

they might know people and are able to get them a job but they will not out

study and what you have to do is make a decision then no matter how privileged

or talented anyone else's in your class you're going to out study them but how

do you out study everyone else in your class I'll leave you with the words of

Eric Thomas I've looked at the most successful people in the world and I

realized that they have seven or eight similar things in common and one of the

things they all had in common was that they all had a root

they are obsessed with routine they don't have a gap of wasted time in their

routine they don't grind until 6 p.m. and then played video games for the rest

of the night they're not scrolling mindlessly through Instagram four hours

a day they don't have time that's a poverty mindset successful people don't

waste time they don't watch TV they don't do a lot of entertainment if

they're not working then they're studying or getting better at their

craft so what you have to decide is do you want to be in the 99% or the 1% and

you'll only join the 1% when you start thinking like the 1% working like the 1%

walking what the 1% how you prioritize your studying over the next 365 days

will significantly alter the journey you're on and whether you make it into

the 1% Club Aristotle said you are what you repeatedly do there for excellence

ought to be a habit not an act don't ever forget that as coach Jay said

I'm not your coach right now I'm your conscience you're in a fight between

will and skill I say will first because that's where you are you're locked and

loaded with skill you're studying every day you're putting in your work you're

buying everything your books pins no pets you're making the investment you're

living your dream you're walking like your dream you're surrounding yourself

with your dream you're studying until late and night and waking up early to do

it all over again you've put your work in you've got your skill and now it's

the test of your will it's a mindset thing you're in

right now it's a mindset thing because your challenge isn't moving your

mountain is not moving you don't feel like you're making any progress you're

not physically moving when you see everything else around you and other

people around you moving you're not making progress you're in a test of your

will right now because life says it has a little more tests for you it's no

different because you messed up because you fell off the wagon because you

failed an exam two exams three exams you gave up on your studying you dropped out

last year and you really want your dream to happen and you're putting in your

work and nothing's happening yet this is our moment ladies and gentlemen this

right here is our moment guys you've all got to think about that just for a

minute this right here this moment right here this is our moment to where we make

what we have been dreaming of into reality the exams you have coming it all

starts in your mind you've got to fall back on everything that you've learned

everything that you've prepared for every hour you spend studying for it

you've prepared well for this dreams can become buried under discouragement

buried under past mistakes there are dreams buried under failed exams buried

under low self-esteem it's easy to settle for average grades even though

you have all this potential buried on the inside all of us have things that

we're believing for something we want to accomplish deep down we know it's a part

of our destiny we can feel it so strongly but then we hit some setbacks

we didn't pass the exam our results weren't good enough if you

do your part and start believing again and get your passion back it's on the

way go back and try again the true mark of a champion is even though some dirt

gets thrown on your dream instead of letting it get buried you keep shaking

it off you keep moving forward you keep looking

for new opportunities
