I get a lot of emails from people passing the GED all the time- I’m truly happy for these people and wish them continued success. However I also get emails from hard working adults that have been studying like crazy and still can’t pass the GED. Does this describe your situation? Let’s talk about 3 ideas to help you get refocused so you can pass:
- Failure is not an option. Giving up on getting your GED because you decided that it’s too hard is the worst thing you can do. Right now is the perfect time to pass in your life because you have been studying and your motivated to pass. If you quit now you will never get your GED because of the fear of failing. So the first thing you can do is to tell yourself that you will not stop studying until you pass- failure is not an option.
- Get Your Positive Energy Up. When we take a hit from a failure we often sink into a mini-depression, this is normal however it’s also a block to success. Ok you failed the GED again- so what! Get excited! Go exercise, turn the music up and watch positive videos. Look, you may have lost the battle but you did not lose the war. So get excited and positive so you can take action- your ability to take action is the true key to passing the exam.
- Get More Help. Listen, you are studying hard and doing your best but maybe you need to invest in more help. This might come in the form of finding a tutor, taking a GED class, watching more YouTube videos, etc. Look at your study plan and make some changes. I will say that you will want to do more practice problems as this is one of the best activities you can do to increase your success.
Bottom line: never quit, you are much closer to passing the GED than you realize- make yourself proud and overcome this temporary setback.
