For some students, it is repeating words as simple as, “I can do this!” For others, it is identifying a completion date and adding that date to the mantra, “I can do this by August 12!” The more times a person repeats the mantra or affirmation, the more integrated it becomes into the thinking process and the less overwhelming a task can be.
As you begin to complete tasks big and small, remind yourself of your achievement, whether it be significant or not from your perspective. Remember that sometimes, an insignificant act can cause big results. But most importantly, as we begin to complete tasks, we develop a sense of self-discipline. It is worth noting, that research has revealed that people which more self-discipline are happier. With that in mind, start to increase your happiness by completing a college application task today. Here’s to happiness year round!
