You CAN Do This: Motivation to Pass the CPA Exam

Denise is a NINJA CPA Blogger.

Christmas is coming! If you are like me, you are wishing that your early gift is to be done with this exam so you can live happily ever after (LOL).

Yes, that may sound a bit dramatic but isn’t that what we all want, to be done!

At some point during the day, every single day, I read something inspirational. Some days I stare back at the quotes and say: “Really, I’m supposed to go through a furnace, so in the end I come out shining bright like a diamond!”

(That last part has nothing to do with Rihanna’s song by the way, I seriously read something about how diamonds are produced…but I digress).

Other days I have a voice saying: “Press on Denise, you CAN do this!”

In this journey that is the exam, you have to cheerlead for yourself some days and other days your friends and family may have to do it for you because let's face it, every day we are not going to wake up with that “fire in the belly”. Life happens!

In my case, you move to a totally different country, you're juggling trying to find something you love doing, you’re preparing for the exam and trying to keep it all together at once.

I don’t have any ground breaking advice on how you can stay motivated, different things work for different people. I read a lot of inspirational quotes and stories. I watch Modern Family or Big Bang Theory…everyone needs a laugh!!! And most of all, I keep believing that one day coming soon I will have those three letters after my name!
