Tips for IIT JEE Success #1 – Motivation

Nov 22,2014 | 61 Comments | By: Quest Tutorials



What is motivation?

Motivation is a desire that activates us to take action to fulfill that desire.

So, what is your motivation to appear in IIT JEE?

This is a question only you can answer. Whatever the reason, please remember that it is choice you have made. It has not been thrust upon you by somebody else. If you choose to compete for IITs then you should raise your level of performance to be able to crack it.

Considering the level of competition, it calls for a tremendous effort mentally and physically.

If you don’t have a very clearly articulated reason to appear in IIT JEE, you may find it difficult to keep yourself motivated through the period of preparation.

Most people are very enthusiastic and motivated when they start their preparation for IITJEE. However, only those few, who manage to maintain that motivation till the end, crack good ranks in IIT JEE

Create a ‘Motivational Strategy’
Write down all the desires in your life. It is the knowledge of these desires that will propel us towards our success. Be absolutely honest while writing them down. Don’t worry if your desires do not look good when you write them down on paper. Link those desires to your success in IITJEE. Some examples of these desires are:

‘I want to learn’: If we look at ourselves, we have always been very keen and curious on learning new things. This gets lost somewhere during the school education.

IITs provide a great opportunity to satisfy that desire to acquire knowledge.

‘I want to be independent’: We all grow up to be independent adults. Independence can be financial, social and emotional. We live in the protected environment of our households, schools and society.

IITs provide the best grooming environment for professional, sports, academic, cultural and literary growth.

‘I want recognition’: All of us like to be recognized for being good at certain things. It helps us feel good about ourselves.

IITians are recognized the world over for their knowledge and skills. They are treated with respect and love.

Similarly, link all your goals and desires to the positive outcome of what you want to achieve.
This way, you will be able to pull yourself back whenever your enthusiasm is going down.

Secondary Motivation
Sports champions are the most competitive people. Most of them overcame great challenges on the road to championship. In the process of their discovery of life, they found great ways to keep themselves motivated. Read up the quotes and biography of sportsmen. Emulate their strategies.

Motivational Support
Take help from people around us in keeping us motivated.

Self-motivated people also, falter and need help getting back on track.

Setup a motivational support system at home, at school, and at work. The support system may be as simple as a “buddy system” with friends.

Declare your intentions of cracking IIT JEE with good rank, among your family members. Let them know how you are completely focused on it. All those who care about you will, thereafter, automatically support you. They will encourage you to keep putting your best.

Have discussions with them related to IITs and IITJEE. Keeping IIT JEE at the top of your mind helps in keeping the focus. It helps to talk and discuss your problems with your support system. Such conversation help in breaking the monotony and boredom

Check the following sources for motivational support.
* Family members
* Guidance counselors or advisors
* Coaches
* Faculty members
* Classmates

Engage in positive Self-Talk
Self-talk refers to the process of bringing our attitudes to a conscious level. It is what we say to ourselves and it reflects our self-esteem. Self-talk can be negative, positive, or neutral. Learning to engage in encouraging self-talk is an effective motivating strategy. An individual must be his/her own best friend, and to do so involves recognizing one’s assets and reminding oneself of them.

Write down all the desires in your life. It is the knowledge of these desires that will propel us towards our success. Be absolutely honest while writing them down. Don’t worry if your desires do not look good when you write them down on paper. Link those desires to your success in IITJEE.

Some examples of these desires are:
