I hope that you are all well and enjoying the course/s that you are signed up to. This is my very first blog, so in some ways just like yourselves I am also learning. Starting something new and different can be exciting but also a bit daunting. Especially when it is something that you have been interested in for a while and wanting to do. It's easy to put ourselves under a lot of pressure and expectation and then worry whether or not we are good enough to achieve.
As a forever student myself, I still have those feelings and doubts that creep up, and I have been known to give into them on occasion. It's so easy to let life take over and before I've known it I've fallen behind and detached myself from what I wanted to achieve. I think it's important to be honest and share that, to let you know that if you find yourself feeling that way, that it can be normal. What makes a difference is how we respond and regain our confidence, passion and commitment.
Over the course of the next few blogs I will be introducing a new study aid tip, so enjoy the first one...
1. You have signed up and made the commitment to yourself to learn a new skill, so ensure that you stay committed. I know it sounds obvious but it's easy especially when home study is required to forget to set a specific time within your weekly diary in order to ensure that you give yourself the opportunity to fulfil. Unless you make that specific time there will ALWAYS be something else that can get in the way. So ensure you have a note book, pen, highlighters, all of your log in details sorted and most importantly, have a set time that is your dedicated study time, and ensure that everyone around you knows it. Pencil it in, put it on your family calendar, your own diary, make it a priority. You deserve it.
If there is one thing you do this week towards your commitment to your studies make it to be to sit down and put in a regular, consistent study time in your schedule...... You owe it to yourself! Oh and enjoy!!!
Love, Light and Blessings, Laura )0( xxx
