How to Stay Motivated and Succeed
First of all, one needs to find where one fits. Studying the things one likes is important in order to complete the program that one starts. There is the old saying, "Do what you love, and you'll always love what you do." It is important that one be practical and study something that will create a good living, but one must not become "a fish out of water." One is more likely to excel, if one is in their element -- in an area where they can be proficient and shine.
There is a delicate balance between practicality and what brings inner satisfaction. Only about 25% of people really like their jobs. It is worth it to find one's niche, one's purpose, or one's calling in life.
The point is, it takes a significant amount of self-discipline and effort to complete a high quality accredited degree, but nearly 3 million poeple do so each year at various online colleges and universities throughout the world. They do so, because it is worth it. There a many benefits, but the key comes from being able to force the issue with yourself and learning how to enjoy the journey.
The most successful people in life develop an attitude that "I can do it." It is a mindset that research has shown that enables people to carry on and take challenges.
1. Set a goal and visualize it down to the most minute detail.
2. Make a list of the reasons you want to accomplish the goal.
3. Break the goal down into smaller pieces and set intermediary targets — and rewards.
4. Have a strategy, but be prepared to change course.
5. Get the help you need.
6. Continually check in with your reasons for carrying on. (Ibid.)
Some additional recommendations -- a part reiteration of the above:
Focus on the big picture
Think about the future success you will have
Take only one step at a time and enjoy each step
Reward yourself for each little achievement
Remind yourself about how much you accomplished -- what you have done, you can do again.
Take care of yourself, eat well, drink healthy liquid, exercise, get an appropriate of sleep
Get into a healthy routine and maintain it
Use positive self-talk: remind yourself --
1. About what a fantastic opportunity I have
2. That you like learning new things
3. That this work will bring you great rewards
4. That everyone you care about will be proud of you

The Key to Success is Commitment and Presistence
The whole idea of completing any degree may at times seem overwhelming. However, it is like the old analogy of the eating an elephant. You can't in one bite, but little by little, one mouth full at a time, it is possible to eat an elephant. Winston Churchil wrote on the Battle for Britain after 92 devastating bombings on London in World War II:
Failure should be our teacher, not our undertaker,
It should challenge us to new heights of accomplishments.
Not pull us to new depths of despair,
Failure is delay, but not defeat.
It is a temporary detour, not a dead end street. (William Arthur Ward)
Nothing is the world can take the
place of persistence.
Talent will not; nothing is more
common than unsuccessful men
Genius will not; unrewarded genius
is almost a proverb.
Education will not; the world is full
of educated derelicts.
Persistence and determination alone
The slogan "Press on" has solved,
and always will solve, the problems
of the human race. (Calvin Coolidge)
"Whatever you vividly imagine, ardently desire, sincerely believe, and enthusiastically act upon, must invitably come to pass." (Paul J. Meyer)
