Hello fellow NINJAS,
As I head into the second phase of my study plan to hit MCQs and take more notes, I know this is where the rubber hits the road for me.
I picked up the saying, “Don’t be afraid to fail,” from a motivation speech by Arnold Schwarzenegger.
I know to some he is a controversial figure, but putting his past aside, the strength of will to accomplish all he has done in his life, for me, is inspirational.
Going through all of the [A71 product=”mcqs”]NINJA MCQs[/A71] till I make the review stage is a daunting task and will require even more work than I have already put in. To get through this, I imagine what Mr. Schwarzenegger went through to develop his body into a world class body builder.
I imagine the self-discipline it took to work out every day, eat right and not let negative thoughts get in the way of achieving his goals.
To become a CPA I know I have to have the same type of self-discipline and grit to pass the CPA Exam in the next 18 months.
