Don’t stop when you’re tired. Stop when you’re done!
To get things done, one requires motivation to work, excel and achieve your goals. Motivation is the key to achieve everything. If you don’t have a strong will, you won’t accomplish your aim.
Same was with our business challenge. As excited as we were for this competition, we needed a dose of motivation to go that extra mile.
Nothing worth having comes easy.
Competitions like this are not a cakewalk. They require hours and hours of hard work and dedication. Being motivated is a strong quality and half the battle is won if one is well motivated. We should push ourselves in life, not only physically but mentally as well. We need to have the will and determination to drive ourselves. Self-inducement is also very empowering especially for young students like us.
Believe you can and you’re halfway there.
It is never easy to achieve your goals! Working towards them gives us confidence and experience which stays with us for the rest of our lives. Being a part of this business challenge gave a boost to our confidence. It taught us that the sky is the limit.
This challenge is a great platform for students to enhance their knowledge about various business activities. It motivates students to take independent decisions and work harder towards achieving the set goals. It also made us aware about the challenges faced by entrepreneurs in their daily lives.
Coming together is the beginning. Keeping together is progress.
Working together is success.
To keep our team motivated throughout, we came up with a few rituals. Every morning we reminded ourselves of our goals of- what we want to achieve, how to go about it and by when. We also kept track of our weekly progress. We took things slowly at the beginning and gained momentum with each passing day towards our goal. A little progress each day adds up to big results.
Never, even once, were our mentors harsh on us. They kept inspiring and motivating us throughout the process and are even doing it till date. They helped us to work as individuals and also as a team and made us understand how to function smoothly, without being the individual stalling the progress towards the team’s next step. Frequent discussions were held to track the progress of each individual.
Because of this positive frame of mind, the thought of failure did not even cross our minds.
“Dreams and dedication are a powerful combination.” We saw this come true right before our eyes as all our hard work, focus and dedication paid off. When we were feeling low on motivation or stuck, our mentors helped us to simplify our schedule and helped us set smaller weekly goals. They were always there to give us a pep talk whenever we needed one. We are working towards making our dream project a success.
