‘I am committed to my degree.’
Pursuing your degree will at many times require you to play the long game.
Travis Macy is a world class professional endurance athlete and has something he calls the ‘4.30 a.m. Rule’
Here is what he says in his book ‘The Ultra Mindset’
"When the alarm goes off at 4.30 a.m., literally or figuratively, get up and take action. You committed ahead of time, and whether or not you feel like doing it (whatever “it” may be) in the moment doesn’t really matter if you’re working toward something aligned with your higher purposes in life. 4.30 a.m. moments happen all the time, and the more you follow through on previous commitments when push comes to shove, the easier it becomes to do regularly."
Waking up ‘literally’ at 4.30 am is not the point here.
The point is to catch your moments of potential regularly.
To help us out here is a remixed script...(Which you can reinvent anytime).
'When my alarm goes off I get up and start taking action. I'm committed ahead of time. I always make progress. I follow through on my commitments. I'm committed to my degree. I make progress towards my degree. I take action towards my degree.'
