I have a paper with some life experiences ive had. Moments when I excelled at something. Usually some good clinical moment I experieced while I was doing my internship here in Peru. Happy moments, successful moments, so that I can remember what I am capable of.

Thank you for suggestions ......that really helped ..... i think motivation is the main first thing important in preparing for the USMLE .....cmon guys share your experiences .....people might take benefit from your ideas ......

And as for my part ..... i tend to have a motivational songlist prepared for every study session ....... i have also made a list of things that will be possible if really cracked the USMLE and be where i always wanted to be ..... the list could have anything ..... like having overcoming personal problems or maybe pissing off the one who would hate to see you achieve that kind of heights or simply making your beloved ones proud .....
