Somebody needs to hear this today! This is your year to succeed! As school resumes, many of you are nervous about your course load. For others, you have new leadership positions and are worried if you’ll be able to execute at the level of your office. Others are sweating bullets because you’ve just submitted your medical school applications and are waiting for interviews. Here’s my advice, instead of worrying, take on a positive attitude. Believe you’re going to completely demolish your challenges this year.
Earl Nightengale was one of the world’s most notable motivational speakers. His message is pretty simple. The secret to success lies in your attitude and your plan. There is a reason why rich people get richer. Have you ever asked yourself how it is that entrepreneurs can go from being filthy rich, to dirt broke, and right back to filthy rich? It’s because they have a success mindset. That’s it…there’s no major secret. They set goals, establish a plan, and maintain a positive attitude.
I believe the number one thing that keeps students from succeeding is lack of confidence. That translates into a poor attitude which in turn leads to poor performance. If you can maintain a positive attitude, you’ll perform at a much higher level.
As the new academic year rolls in, I challenge all of you to have the mindset of a winner. Go into this at full beast mode! Did you hear what I said, FULL BEAST MODE! Get upset at failure. Get ANGRY at mediocrity. BEAST MODE all the way! Like a lion waiting to snatch up its prey, be hungry for success and don’t stop grinding until you get what you’re out for. Whether it’s a high GPA, a solid MCAT score, or med school admission, go at it with a positive attitude.
