May 23rd 2015: Thought of the Day


I am back! I have not disappeared off the face of the earth! I thought this golden nugget would not only be extremely valuable reminder but will also serve as a launching board to explain my pro-longed absence.

Yesterday I wrote the new 2015 MCAT. Even though there were some technical difficulties and I was quite fatigued (as I was barely able to sleep a wink the night before) I was still very confident about my performance on the exam.

However, it was only roughly a month ago I was facing crippling self doubt. I was very confident in my ability to excel on the MCAT as I scored in the 96th percentile on the old version of the exam. But I felt completely overwhelmed with research/school, training, and this blog. I just needed more time.

I realized that I needed to take my own advice from a previous post (Read More: How to End Procrastination) and to reflect and identify my key priorities and ignore everything else. I could not go back in the past  and spread my MCAT studying out over more months so that I did not have to work like a dog over the next month. But I did have the option to realize what my priorities were, and focus solely on those.

Therefore, I realized that I needed to take a temporary break from this blog, to knock the MCAT out of the park. However, I am back, and ready to help inspire everyone to be happy and chase their dreams.

Nevertheless, this story is a perfect reminder that almost anything is possible, but that does not mean that everything can be done. It is essential to be crystal clear what you want to achieve and go after it with unmatched determination and grit.

Be Happy and Chase your Dreams,

Pavan Mehat
