Hey guys so basically im in second year college after having retook my AS year (technically 3rd year) earlier this year my mum was diagnosed with cancer, i got in an accident and a fight. Just feels like things didnt go well. Regardless of this i still wanted to carry on my studies and go to uni. Im predicted 2 A*'s and a C and just dont feel bothered. I know it sounds bad and I do care, I do want to go far but it seems everytime im close to doing something productive I talk myself out of it and do something utterly useless like go play blackjack or play games, watch a movie etc. Just need some help and advice on how to stop doing this. I really want to do well but I feel like I lack the motivation.

Do you lack motivation, or is there part of you that's a bit scared, or a bit lacking in confidence? It sounds like you've had a tough time, so it wouldn't be altogether surprising. I think maybe to start with, think about what you really want, and how to achieve it. If you're predicted two A*s and a C you can clearly achieve a lot. You need to believe in yourself and your ability to do well. You still have plenty of time to get on with revision etc. Sit down, and make a plan. You might not keep to it exactly, but you'll know what you're supposed to be doing. Include 'break to play games' 'break to watch a movie' in your plan - it's unrealistic to work non-stop.

Ultimately, only you can do the work, and the person most capable of looking after your interests is YOU. Motivation has to come from within you, yourself. Good luck.
