JEE is one of the most important exams in the life of an engineering aspirant. This exam is what grants a student admission in many of the country’s best engineering colleges and allows them to score a high paying job right after. The progress made by the engineering students in today’s education scenario is nothing short of spectacular. That’s what makes this field interesting enough to join for over 150,000 students each year. Out of this, only a small number of students become eligible to become candidates for the second phase of the JEE Entrance Exam – JEE Advanced. Clearing this exam makes students eligible for admission in the IITs, which are widely regarded as the best engineering colleges in the nation.
Less than 15000 students of all the 15 lakh students score seats in the IITs, while the number of students who appear for JEE Advanced is 2 lakhs. These figures should be enough to show any aspirant just how difficult this competition can get. If you are one such student, it is important to know that you must not feel disheartened by the above numbers. Even if the numbers say that only one in a thousand make it through, you can still be that one. However, just like any other path to success, this is one laid with naysayers at every turn. These naysayers are people who either are jealous of you or they believe that you cannot do it and wish to save you from the pain of disappointment. You must remember that if people cannot do something themselves, they will want to tell you that you can’t do it either. However, the only one capable of judging your capability is you.
How Doses of Motivation Can Benefit You for JEE Mains 2020?
There are many students who have been through the path of JEE Mains and JEE Advanced. They always credit it to motivation and guidance from experts. This is exactly what is mentioned in the rest of the article. Since getting into IIT is the ultimate goal of every engineering student in India, they need a little push forward for their goal. This is what will help them to realize their goals. If you are looking for some ways to motivate yourself for the exam, here are some interesting methods that can give you the extra mental edge.
1. Goal Setting
A clear goal is the biggest motivation source a person can have. When you focus on your goal with all that you have, there is nothing that can divert you from the path of achieving your goal. If you set your goal to be in IIT, you can rest assured that you will find it much easier to stay focused on the path to score a good rank in JEE Mains 2020.
However, it is important to know that there is a big difference between desire and action. Even so, there cannot be any action without desire. Therefore, if you wish to be successful, you must first have the desire and then create the action on the basis of it. You must always be clear on what your reason for the preparation is.
Once you have done the above, you can write down your goal and your reason for wanting the goal on a piece of paper and stick it on your desk. This will allow you to work towards your goal with even more focus. Whenever you begin to feel lost and alone, you can look at the paper for motivation. Remember that if you study hard now, you can live the life you want in the future. This is worth working towards with every ounce of your strength. Follow your dreams and just ignore everyone who tries to demotivate you.
2. Gamify It
Our brains are not meant to work towards rewards set far away in the future. But if you begin to reward yourself for each little task, you will begin to form a system that will keep you motivated throughout for the rest of your path to JEE success. You can set everyday goals for yourself and reward yourself each time you achieve one of them. Your daily goals can be numerous or less, depending on how much time you are willing to put in every day for your goals. For example, one of your daily goals can be to finish all the questions of a certain chapter, and your reward can be to go for a walk, listen to some music, etc. The reward at the end of the task will help teach your brain that studying is a very rewarding thing to do, and will also rejuvenate you before the next task.
3. Keep a Positive Circle
It is rightly said that a man is known by the company he keeps. When you keep positive people in your surroundings, their presence will liberate you from the chains of demotivation. This is going to benefit you in the long run by making you realize the importance of positive motivation. The fact is, humans, become most like the 5 people they spend the most time with.
Their success stories can serve as fuel for your fire, and their pride can help you feel pride in yourself. You will see their hard work and determination towards their goals and will be inclined to show the same for your goals.
4. Review Your Progress Regularly
There was once a man who spent all his time climbing a mountain, but when he reached the summit, he realized that he had been climbing the wrong one all along. The importance of reviewing your progress time and again cannot be understated when you need to prepare for the JEE mains 2020. You do not need to compare your progression to that of other peers of yours, but only to that of yourself. Nothing in the world is more motivating than to see your abilities improve with every passing day. When you see that you are able to solve questions that you previously considered impossible, you will begin to see a change in your motivation levels to perform even more.
In the case of preparing your syllabus, it becomes important to know the amount of syllabus that you have completed and that is still left to be completed. You will soon begin to see the progress bar change, and it will fuel you throughout the preparation.
The best person to motivate you is you alone. Not a single other person can offer you the same levels of motivation that you can offer yourself. This can be done via your internal monologue, or by constantly reminding yourself to perform better than you did before. You can remember your reasons for pursuing the goals and begin to realize just how close they are to you.
6. Things to Help You with Self-Motivation
You can do the following things to ensure that you are able to clear all your goals for the day and maintain your motivation levels till nighttime.:
• Start your day with a healthy dosage of exercise, and meditation as this will help maintain your energy levels.
• Schedule yourself to take breaks regularly, but carry out tasks in your break that would not compromise your ability to get back to studying after the break ends.
