Your educational journey is going to be hard. I can promise you that. There are two paths you can take, the easy road or the hard road.
If you choose the hard road, it means you choose to study when your friends are out partying. You start writing your report when the rest of the class don't even know the deadline yet. You're already awake at 5:00 a.m. on your way to the library when the rest of your friends are still sleeping.
If you can find enough focus and motivation to do these hard things, the things that everyone else struggles with, then your educational journey will be easy.
The grades will be easy. The scholarships will be easy. But it's a choice that you have to consciously make. You have to step up and take that path. And it will be lonely at times. It will feel like you're the only one doing this.
But that's the whole point. The whole idea of this is to be standing at the top of the mountain, while everyone else is still at the bottom, because you took the path that so many people are unwilling to take.
