MOTIVATION : What drives you?

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.

– Martin Luther King Jr

Continuing and paraphrasing the above quote, fear cannot drive out diffidence; you only faith can, words cannot drive your exam ; only preparation can…. Well I guess there are lots of things to be afraid of in this exam, maybe the sections of the paper, a bad day, your own self belief, the levels of concentration… AAhhh there are so many reasons, but none of them are going to be of any help to you.

I do realize that the exams are nearing in a way, and this is perhaps not the best time to be brooding over these questions. But none of can be of any help to you. There is only one thing that can if it can help you, it is simply you, how you take  charge of yourself, how you take control over these self defeating thoughts and tell it to them, tell it to yourself that these thoughts have no place cos they are not the ones that are driving you. What drives you is the true essence of your dream and your true commitment to achieve the same. The rest is all a mere distraction!
