    I have no work ethic, I am failing in school. I want to work hard and do well so badly. I go to one of the top grammar schools in the country and it makes me depressed I am performing so far behind the average.

    I know if i don't start working now I will screw my life up, I just don't care at the same time. All I do is browse social media and game. How do I gain the will to work and succeed like I see so many on here have.

    I know this is frustrating but the truth is: if you are intelligent enough to get into one of the country's top grammar schools, you are intelligent enough to excel in exams. If you really do "want to do well" you would be working.

    I know it sounds extreme, but if you're wasting that much time gaming and on social media, you have to remove the temptations. Turn of your phone. Delete your accounts. Get rid of your Xbox or whatever. Hang out with motivated people. Force yourself, or if that doesn't work, get a family member to sit there and make you work for 45 mins at a time. Do past papers instead of just making pointless notes and stuff if you find it hard to stay focused.

    It's your life.
