By this time of year, most people begin to lose motivation. They begin to stray from their goals or any New Year’s Resolutions they had made. As a student, I know that this time of year is hard because the feeling of a new semester has worn off and it is time to buckle down and work. Midterms and finals will be here before you know it.

On top of it all, it’s the start of the competition season. Weekends are spent going to rodeos or shows. It’s hard to keep your head above the to-do list while staying motivated for your goals. However, here are some words to inspire you to keep going and doing your best!
