Increasing and Keeping Motivation

  • Think about the college you want to transfer to (stay aware of it always)
  • Keep your interest high
  • Use interests & goals to keep you determined (i.e. graduation, religion, music, sports, etc.)
  • Ask peers and family to encourage your strengths
  • Come with a positive attitude; tell yourself
  • " You can do it!"
  • Think about your life after you get your degree
  • Stay focused on your goals; ones that success in math classes will allow you to achieve
  • Have " doable" goals – ones you can do in a semester
  • Remember, "I think I can" by The Little Engine That Could
