    I keep getting failing scores, or barely passing scores on GED pretests online... Should I just give up?

    I mean, no matter how hard I try I just keep getting bad scores. I’ve been studying for like half a month now and I haven’t seen any improvement at all… It’s so discouraging and I feel like why should I even bother as I’m never going to improve…

    Remember that you're studying for a test that is a culmination of 4 years of education... No matter what, if you beat that pace, your doing rather well

    @Justice For All , if you keep thinking like that, then you surely won't go anywhere.

    Half a month, with +1 week since you've wrote that post, is nearly nothing if your very own mind is blocking you along with your fear of failure.

    Think positive, my friend, it is better to die trying than to never have tried. I'm not sure if this applies to you, but even if you fail in everything, you can try again next year. Or maybe you will fail some tests and pass others - that is already halfway done! Just do your best, and forget the rest!

    No one would have ever imagined that Einstein would become what he became, yet, he's now part of History; thus, immortal.

    Clean your mind, relax, and focus on giving your best, regardless of the result. If you're studying while being nervous or unwell, then most of what you study/read/see won't really get stuck in your mind...

    And there are some mind tricks you can always use, like recording everything you need to know/study, and constantly hearing it instead of reading it, even during your sleep. Actually, especially during your sleep, because, as you probably know, while you sleep, your subconscious is fully active, and the same way 'it' transmits information to your organism - like making you dream and fart while you sleep (lol) - 'it' also captures information.

    This might seem silly, but I actually did this on my final year of Law because I was working part-time, and also suffered a huge personal loss. I recorded my notes of Constitutional Law 2 and Criminal Law 2 because those two were the 'monsters' that actually worried me. And I now regret not doing that before. So I started listening to my own voice through my mp3, whenever I could, at work, driving, at home, whenever and wherever I could, including falling asleep while listening to my own voice :) And when the time came, I passed both of them with a fair ease. It's been 11 years now since I graduated, but I remember reading my notes on the nights before both exams, and as I read my notes, I felt like the knowledge was coming out of my brain and that everything was already stuck in my mind... It was one of the most odd experiences I've ever felt in my whole life, and even during the exams, I actually felt relaxed and confident.

    No matter how you feel, remember to always keep your hopes high, because if you convince yourself that you are going to fail, then that is halfway into a complete failure; but if you focus and convince yourself that you will succeed, then your chances of actually succeeding are much higher! It's just like sexual dysfunction, in some cases, the men who can't get it up, can't get it up because they're already convinced that they can't get it up, and because they fear they won't please their companion...So just relax, focus on the present moment, and let things happen.

    Good luck man! You are one of the most bright individuals I've seen on these forums, and I'm not talking about the stuff you copy paste, I'm talking about the way you think, the way you rationalize certain myths and uncertain matters, you're a smart and intelligent guy, so just chill out and do what you gotta do! Don't let the fear of failure get to you, be strong and be persuasive to your own self.

    Re: How do you stay motivated and not give up?

    I do what i love to do, my passion and what drives me crazy and automatically to the direction where i am happy.
    I am surrounded with people who lift me up and vice versa.
    I am in touch with my family.
    I try my best to stop bad habiting.
    I get inspired and motivated by mastermind people who want to direct their lives in the positive direction.
    Whatever happens i embrace it and i continue living the way i want.
    Being persistent and consistent with things in life is super motivating thing and time by time it will be normal.
    I try to sleep enough (7-9) hours (weekends 9-10 who knows)
    I care about my health and nutrition, it helps me being motivated to inspire others and even my family.
    Drink alot of water! hydrating gives super energy and u are then in a good state to do what ulove to :D
    Stop breathing shallow and let a full oxygen get in my body, by doing that i i feel much mroe relaxed and open to do anything i want in life :D
    Stay away from stressy situations, go out and do stuff, smile and the most important thing (meditate in Stillness by sitting everyday atleast for 5-10 minutes and clearing my thoughts)

    Book recommendations: 'The Power of Now by eckhart tolle' because being present in your life is appreciating and loving life.

    hope this helps <3

    Give into despair.
    Wallow in self-hatred.
    If you survive this, then you won't need motivation to get stuff done.

    Eh sort-of, I've been taking a break the last week or so and then I'm going to hit the books hard again once my mind gets a small rest.

    Re: How do you stay motivated and not give up?

    I find it difficult to stay motivated when it comes to working or when I was in school, learning.

    After living in Cambodia for 4 months from October 2016-February 2017, I realised how important schooling and work is. We may not think work is easy for us, but compared to the work of Khmer people, it's absolutely nothing!!

    These are still the most important years of your life, work hard and leave a legacy for your future generation. It is tough sometimes but it is not impossible.

    Re: How do you stay motivated and not give up?

    So I've changed up my routine a little bit lately.

    I started getting exercise by going to the gym more often and doing cardio mainly, I'm up to walking on the treadmill at 3 miles an hour for an hour and a half (so a little over 3 miles). I've been working on my back muscles as I have 2 fractured vertebrae from a while ago, trying to strengthen them instead of just flat out getting back surgery. I honestly feel a lot better now that I get exercise, eat healthier, and I also talk with my father on a regular basis which was something that I was not doing before and I feel good about.

    I've seen an improvement in my academics as-well as my regular day-to-day life.

    Just thought I'd give a little, progress update if you will for the people who are interested.
