    Everyone has an awesome genius inside of them (not in a creepy way). I mean that everyone has the ability to outperform their peers, humiliate their rivals and generally dominate their sphere.

    All they need to do is change the way they think.

    A few years ago, I was fat. I was also heading for a 2:2 in my degree - not having much motivation after finding out that there also other people in the world that get 100 UMS on even the toughest of A2 modules. Starting at Oxford, I felt like a small fish in a big pond. I felt so utterly average. It got me depressed. And many of you out there right now are depressed for similar reasons - because you realise that the challenges before you are difficult and you aren't guaranteed anything.

    There were three main things, three ways I changed my thinking, that really helped me.

    1. Remember that nearly everyone is in the same boat!!!! Your rivals, your peers, people who show off and appear to beat you are all going through the same struggles. Don't make yourself into a victim of some "unfairness" that only affects you. Because that's how people eventually accept failure. You have to remember that the other guy is going through all the same struggles. Once you accept that and reject excuses, you automatically become more likely to succeed.

    2. Break down large tasks into a series of much smaller ones and only concentrate on each small task as it comes. Too many times I used to give up on things because I felt the weight of the challenges ahead on my shoulders. I used to basically work against myself. I then stopped thinking about all that lay ahead and started focusing on very small, nearby targets. Chipping away on these targets helps you to achieve the big target. You don't build walls, you lay bricks.

    3. And finally, dont let other people tell you something isn't possible for you. People are mostly quite sad and jealous creatures. They can't see it for themselves or for their children so they tell you that you can't do it. It is so easy to feel that you're wasting your time when people tell you to not even bother. Ignore these people. Try it anyway, do it anyway. I have found that I have learnt so many valuable things from my failures that have gone on to be critical factors in my successes.

    I don't think any sane person would want to attempt to imitate you in any form or way.

    No one aspires to be a compulsive liar who spends the majority of their time on a student forum while claiming to be a rich doctor who works locum.

    Don't be jelly and bitter.


    Just because you find it hard to believe, doesn't make it a myth.
