3. Do The Work
Do you know one of the biggest challenges that today’s youth face when it comes to studying?
It is procrastination!
For some reason, they are not able to stop themselves from scrolling endlessly through youtube shots or Instagram. It is almost like a reflex impulse. However, psychologists believe that procrastination is never strong enough, which means we are letting it win.
In a way, we are our biggest enemy. This book by Steven Pressfield goes into the nitty gritty of why we procrastinate and how we can stop these distractions without having control over our determination to study.
4. The Obstacle Is The Way
What happens when you fail in a venture?
Depression engulfs you to the point that you do not wish to do anything. Motivation and enthusiasm are feelings long gone, and all you can do is focus on the obstructions. However, did you know that ancient Greeks believed in this concept called Stoicism?
This is where you learn the art of fortitude, which helps you take control of your destructive emotions. The feeling of unwillingness from every work is destructive for yourself, and Rayn Holiday’s ‘The Obstacle Is The Way’ will delve into the art of stoicism and how you can jump back after a failure in your academic life.
5. Mouth Full Of Blood
Yes, the name of the book is not that appealing, but we sweat that the contents are. If you face a challenge to finish an essay, and ‘writer’s block’ has become a common excuse to procrastinate while finishing that paper, then you need this book.
In ‘Mouth Full Of Blood’ by Toni Morrison, you will see historically recorded collections of essays and lectures by famous Nobel prize winners. Their words of wisdom and pointers of inspiration will immediately get into the groove of finishing that essay.
Plus, this is an excellent choice if you wish to get a good grasp on your diction for writing better essays in the future.
