Motivation; the key (and crutch) of success in college.
Do you ever get to the gym, and the first thought is “Do I really have to workout today?” Ever start the first set, of the first exercise, and your muscles immediately ache with rebellion? Then, you decide to cut your workout short. Quitting becomes a welcome reprieve, and you decide to jump ship from dedicated fitness over to the USS Netflix, with your new first mate Easy Mac. Soon after, studying gets put off just like your workout. While your show starts, you try and reassure yourself that one night won’t make a change… tomorrow, you get to try again right?
This motivational “caffeine crash” is something we can all relate to. While we’re certainly responsible for our choices, part of this is also related to the fact that mainstream media, reflecting our culture, has glamorized endeavors that are by nature challenging, testing, and arduous. Things such as fitness, studying, even entire lifestyles are portrayed as easy and quick-to-achieve in media constantly thrown in our faces. Motivation can’t be purchased from the store at the cost of a magazine, even though society tends to dwell on the idea of achieving great things without paying any great price for it.

Campus Elite: A resource, and recipe, for College Success
You should realize that everything you’ve read up to this point is the exact reason why you should strive for physical, educational, and mental excellence. With every PR you break, with every pound of fat lost or muscle gained, every test aced, you might not impress anyone else, but you will impress yourself. Doing so, you will come to rely on the greatest source of motivation; You. Unlike your typical ‘redbull gives you wings’ caffeine moment from extrinsic motivation, your own self worth will increase with every ounce of energy you pour into creating and building yourself. With every rep, every can of tuna, every hour studying, you are fueling that fire that will never run dry on you; but will carry you to bigger mountains at every step.
Being Elite is knowing that you are your own motivation: realizing that greatness is within you, that you are powerful beyond measure to create the life, build the physique, and achieve the goals you set out for yourself. Our message at Campus Elite is simple: introduce some chaos to your life, dare to be different, take the road less traveled. Campus Elite is here to create change… a change in thinking, in believing, and in doing. The rewards you reap will last you a lifetime.
