The skills that you develop in order to do well in the HSC are not limited to just your school life. Successful people are not the ones that hang around waiting for opportunities to arise. They work hard and they are willing to put in the time and the effort needed to do well. Sometimes it is a little bit difficult to get motivated; huge amounts of work and the prospect of a dwindling social life can make sitting down and studying pretty difficult.
There is however light at the end of the tunnel. When you sit down to study you are building a productive skillset that if nurtured will help you propel yourself to the top of your field. Building skills is like putting together a snow ball. You start small and you keep adding to it until you have a sizeable chunk of snow that you can throw at the world.
Remember, everything you do is being processed by your body as a learning activity. Everytime you jump in the driver seat of your car you are subconsciously learning how to drive. If you take an active role in your learning and you make the decision to do whatever it takes to succeed you will far exceed the expectations that the world has for you. Most importantly you will see how much having faith in your own potential can achieve.
The mind is the most powerful muscle in the body.
