Many students feel the heat of studies because they have a pessimistic outlook towards studies. This negative approach towards studies adds to the anxiety and fear in the student’s mind regarding their academics.
It is a known fact that your thoughts do influence your reality. Thus, it is very essential to have a positive outlook towards studies. Viewing good grades as an achievable target is the first step towards getting rid of study-related anxiety.
Ignore Negative People
In order to have a positive outlook, you need to ignore people who spread negativity. You will have people, friends or maybe even teachers who would tell you how difficult a particular entrance test is. Although, their intention is to warn you about it, they end up discouraging you, which adds to your fear.
Know the difference between being negative v/s careful
It is very important to know the difference between being negative and being careful. It is also very important to know the difference between being positive and being over-confident.
You need to mind these differences. Just because you are being careful about your studies, doesn’t mean you are negative about studies. Also, being positive about studies, doesn’t mean being over-confident about studies.
You need to take care that in the process of turning your approach into positive, you should not become over-confident.
