Do you feel yourself constantly pressured by the amount of work you have to do for your least favourite subject, Physics? Well, you’re not alone. Tons of students feel the same kind of stress that you do and like you, this can lead to a negative disposition about the subject.
While this may sound a little far-fetched, but adopting a positive attitude to something you dislike such as physics can be an important skill to learn in life.
Step #1 – Think Positively
Before telling yourself you can’t solve the seemingly impossible problem in front of you, think of how much easier it would be if you have a more positive mindset about it. Don’t procrastinate and instead, just work on the problem. Look at it from different angles if you can. Don’t be afraid to make mistakes!
Step #2 – Be Thankful
The fact that you’re can consider enrolling for “A” Level Physics Tuition means that you’re better off than other people. Use that as motivation and give thanks for whatever you have. Be thankful that you’re afforded the opportunity that some can only dream of having. If you can, make a list of everything that you’re thankful for.
The more gracious and thankful you are, the more you reinforce yourself into having a more positive attitude all throughout the day.
Step #3 – Celebrate!
It doesn’t have to be big, but do celebrate your little achievements.
If you scored well in your latest exam, treat yourself to some sleep before you move on to your next set of work. Did you top your class? Don’t think twice about treating yourself (and even your friends) to ice cream!
Again. Don’t be afraid to celebrate. The moment you pause to think about your achievements is the same moment that you’ll realise that you have come far, despite how bleak things were looking.
While there’s such a thing as overconfidence, it doesn’t hurt to congratulate and give ourselves a pat on the back every now and then.
Step #4 – Don’t Wallow In Your Failures
As mentioned previously, celebrate even when you fail. At the very least, avoid wallowing in self pity about your failure.
Your failures don’t define you and they certainly don’t set a precedent for what will happen tomorrow. Accept the fact that you failed and move on. Don’t be too hard on yourself. Instead of focusing on the negatives, put your energy into doing something to protect yourself from future failure and even if you do fail, simply dust yourself off and stand back up again.
