Every day i start with a prayer, came along something which is beautiful and motivating thought to share

When you deeply intend, yearn, desire, long, crave a task, goal or neediness, pause and take a long breath, and visualize its successful completion in your mind. Hold it tight and close to you, smile and be determined, centred, focused, aimed, targeted and be ambitious for that means to fulfil optimistically. Push your energy thought pattern, attention span, effort, concentration, motivation, having a strong powerful driving ardent and Intense passion for that plea. Your thirst and hunger will grow for its vibrations expand and moves into the realms within your sub-conscious for its achievement.

Correct Answer Keep it up

Keep doing it and soon your scores will start going up! Pathoma is awesome for pathology! Stay positive and confidence. Keeping a diary of the wrong UW questions might help to keep track of the subjects you're low so you can review your weak areas each day. You can do it !!

Just finish all the questions and read the explanations. That's how I felt too. After doing a lot of questions, you'll get the murmurs down.

Thankyou all you kind people for always taking out time to answer my questions

so to update my progress
i have been feeling very anxious from last couple of days

i am doing better with uworld my speed has some what increased
i tried not to push myself too much and get depressed rather i tried doing 1 block with another half block along with reading through firstaid and dit for understanding things ive forgotten
i am hoping to see some good results this time

i dont want to slow down this time

i am feeling little disconnect from pathoma at this point its been 2 weeks i havent opened pathoma
i know repeating is the key

good day eveyone

i read my previous posts here and it really seemed like i have been doing alot .
few things i dont even remember doing that i have posted

i feel like my brain is a treasure box, whatever went inside is inside and i dont even know its there

i need some confidence, i need to believe in my hardwork

i always feel lost and i think i dont know anything

may be i dont but i have done whatever i can for this, i hope all goes well for all of us because we are putting so much in this exam

goodday all

the most important ingredient for success is self confidence doctor.....nothng else....all u need is confidence in your self that you can do this and are retaining stuff and suddenly u feel a lot more confident when answering the blocks too....do not think about the the scores in uworld..i was stressed about it too at first...all i thought of was how many questions i must solve, how much should i study...it does matter how much u can read for a day but the most important thing is how much did u actually learn..nd did not do just a shallow reading...there is a difference...invest time for a topic in and out if u dont understand it...u may feel that u might be wasting time but actually once u master that topic u vl never get it wrong again....its a win-win right? so yea as u said, trust urself and be very practical and smart...and success shall be yours....take care
