Well… shucks… I’m in a motivational mood today so I figured I’d share some awesome motivational quotes to help you get through your day productively.
(Don’t take this seriously, though… I can’t believe I feel the need to say this…)
I promise I have a point buried in here somewhere.
“Reading motivational quotes is an easy way to convince yourself you’re being productive while you’re actually just procrastinating. But I’m all about helping the people…”
-Aaron Richardson (SmartStudentSecrets.com)
“Don’t do today what you can put off for a crisis.”
– Benjamin Franklin
“You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.”
– Lee Harvey Oswald
“Good things come to those with a hostage.”
– Carl Sagan
“Genius is not superior knowledge. Genius is superior marketing.”
– Albert Einstein
“Rome wasn’t built in a day. I heard they had to work all the way to 11PM.”
– Edward Gibbon
“Some opportunities don’t just knock. They knock you in the skull and make you wish complacency would come for a visit.”
– George Washington
“Work hard because life sucks and you might as well be too tired to worry about it.”
– Shel Silverstein
“Don’t define success on silly things like status or what other people think. It’s all about the cold hard cash.”
– Susan B. Anthony
“Good things don’t come to those who wait. They come to those that took good things from other people.”
– Karl Marx
“Every second is one second closer to death.”
– Ted Williams
“Stand up for what you believe in. Particularly if you have high social status and can be sure rich friends will protect you from everyone else. Then just shoot your mouth off like crazy!”
– Martin Luther (Original Recipe)
“You can’t fail when you don’t even try.”
– Martin Luther King Jr.
“Why let that little pump of oxytocin fuel you into thinking that you’re being productive?
You’re smart enough to know that feeling that you’re doing the right thing doesn’t mean that you actually are doing the right thing.
Step up and start doing what you need to do!”

This is an absolutely essential read for anyone on this blog.
I’m about 4 hours away from something big.
The story began a decade ago when I first started to share my study strategies with other students.
I had figured out the Holy Grail of academic optimization strategies – and every intermediate step to get to it. Using this strategy, I pulled a nearly 4.0 GPA while running a double course load in college – and once I started sharing it.
Droves of them.
And then teachers noticed.
Most of the teachers that were looking out for their student’s best interest got what I was saying and supported the cause. Others… well… not everyone has the student’s best interest at heart.
Early on (even before Smart Student Secrets,) I started writing for average students.
I knew… I was NEVER one of the “smart kids”. I was mediocre at best. And I knew, if these strategies worked for me then they could work for just about anybody. And that’s who I wanted to connect with.
But… There was a problem…
I built an audience giving these strategies away. Sure…
And I’d get messages from them. And we’d talk. And I’d hear their stories.
I’d hear from A+ students that cut their study time by 90%.
I’d hear from B students that took their grades up to A’s.
I’d hear from teachers that were sharing my strategies with their students.
I’d hear from older students how these strategies changed their life.
I love it. I love introducing these strategies that changed my life to other people.
But there was always this… but…
What about the C students?
What about the D students?
What about the students that are currently failing?
Sure… Some would reach out.. but…
They never followed through… They’d take a small step. They’d sign up. They’d learn some killer strategies. Seeing right there how powerful they were going to be…
And then… life kicks in. They lose sight of their goals.
And it’s gone.
Student’s came to this site to improve their life. They see the possibilities. But then… they move on.
In about 4 hours, I’m going to be introducing something – an email subscriber exclusive – that can help change that.
It’s going to make more Smart Students than at any other time in this site’s history.
