Hey guys! I am Fania, I started my GMAT studies a month ago but I stopped my studies for more than a week now. The reason for this is because I got frustrated and I was feeling very dumb, I actually felt this was not for me and decided to stop doing it. I have changed my mind again I know how important and how much I want an MBA so I will start all over again, have you ever feel that way? What do you do to motivate yourself again?

Thanks again!

There are always high & low points during preparation process. Sometimes when you don't get a concept, or seeing few low score on mock test, or jus frustrated with the prep process. The point to remember always is our END GOAL. Focus on it and try to pull yourself up. At moments like these, no one can help you other than yourself

I personally have a poster of Women personalities who inspire stuck at my desk and i try reading them when i need some Inspiration/ Encouragement

Hi Fanny06

Thanks for your question.
At some point of our lives, we all do step back on our choices and decisions.
At such a stage, it is indeed important to introspect by going a few steps back
and answer yourself: WHY in the first place did you plan to give GMAT
and get an MBA? This is what mikemcgarry also shared while
answering the question from a different perspective in this post by referring to Simon Sinek's Ted talk*.

We all easily find answer to the WHATs (What is GMAT/MBA?)
and Hows (by enrolling in online courses, self studying with books or joining
a coaching institute) but what will really get you through the finish line are
your purpose and beliefs on why you started with that dream in first place.
Try comparing your purpose(s) with reasons put up in the MBA Video series #11 and 12
by my fellow friend Narenn on gmatclub homepage. I would urge you to break the WHYs down
even in your study prep. You can refer to few guidelines here.

For any small hurdles down your path, we have few no side effects prescriptions here
and here to have a smile on face through hard times.

Wishing you all the very best in your prep :)

* The TED talk is third most viewed and if you are comfortable with reading e-books, an
option is here

Few days back even i'm at the same stage, it happens and this is all a part and parcel to achieve things living beyond our comfort zone along with consistency.
So whenever u feel low, take a mock and the result make u realize that u need to work hard.

GOOD LUCK :)

This is perfectly fine to feel low, defeated at somepoint of time in life .

BUT WE HAVE TO OVERCOME THESE, WE SHOULD NEVER ALLOW THESE TO OVERCOME US .

As far as GMAT is concerned ,

It is an exam pf skills, stamina and knowledge .

You can achive all these via practice,

set small weekly targets , achive them, solve questions, check your error log and revise those question ,

Within a month you will see a drastic improvement .

In learning is important , but retetion is also equally important

all the best
