As said by Aristotle “Well begun is half done”. The D-Day, which would test your months of hard work and determination, is now at an arm’s length. Whenever you start targeting something, you first visualise the success you will get after hitting that target; then you start building focus on that target and then try to shape up your efforts so that you can achieve that target.
Now, just rewind your memories of months back when you started your preparations for CAT and visualize that day and compare the energy you have that day versus today and if you get the feeling that that day my energy was very high in comparison to today, then you need to sit back and ask yourself where this energy has gone? Over a period of time whenever small setbacks came in your way, you might have given up your energy and that’s what you need to control at this point of time to crack CAT.
You need to gather all your energy back which you have lost over a period of time and put your steps firmly to bell the CAT. Time has come when you have to face one of the biggest hurdles of your career, where all of your qualities will be tested. Remember, till the last man is dead, the fight is not over and hence nobody can beat you, nobody can defeat you, nobody else is going to decide which B-school you will join except you, so don’t give up. Recall the memories of highs of your life, the challenges you have surpassed against all odds, these are the proofs that you have it in “You” to make it happen.
“Successful people maintain a positive focus in life no matter what is going on around them. They stay focused on their past successes rather than their past failures, and on the next action steps they need to take to get them closer to the fulfilment of their goals rather than all the other distractions that life presents to them.”
Till this time you must be well aware about your strengths and weaknesses. So develop a right approach while giving CAT. In these remaining days, you should master your strengths and know to work around your weaknesses so that they don’t become a hurdle. It’s time you stay calm, confident and focused. Your hard work will surely pay off.
GO BELL IT!
