    Motivation for Step 1

    Advertisements



    I think we should have a topic with words of advice from AUC students or motivational quotes to help keep those of us preparing to take step 1 and for the rest still in basic sciences to read and give themselves a little jump.....kinda like redbull

    " Make it happen, help it happen, or get out of the way."

    " Nobody ever woke up on top of the mountain; sometimes you just got to go climbing!"

    " Push yourself again and again. Don't give an inch until the final buzzer sounds."
    ***** Bird

    " If you don't work hard on your game, you're the one who loses."
    Steve Gladfelter

    " Courage is not a lack of fear, but the ability to act while facing fear."

    I may be a jerk, but I'm a Jedi jerk like my father.

    Motivations!!

    These are my motivations for step 1 apart from being a doctor,coz if I do not pass the steps I cannot get out of my Alcatraz:
    1]Ah to touch snow again.
    2]To eat the McDonald's $1.00 menu and completely deny, that I ate anything outside to my wife and eat dinner again.
    3]The ability to dial 911 and see a paramedic in less then 3 minutes.(Compare that to people dying with heart attacks coz no Taxis to be found.Forget an ambulance in the DR)
    4]To just raise my hand in Manhattan and hail a cab 24/7.
    5]To read a book while travelling on the R.
    6]To read a book on Ellis Island and then stare into the NY skyline.
    7]To be able to fill gas in my car on my own(Impossible here)
    8]To watch US open on a season pass at Shea stadium.
    9]To pray at Gita Temple in Corona Avenue and then come out and find that my car has been towed away again.And as I start getting all uptight,my wife holding my hand saying in her nectarine voice,"Calm down Naav."And everything becomes fine again.
    10]To stroll through Central park, then sit down & read something and then stroll again.

    I dunno, I kinda like the Full-Serve option here on the islands. Ahh... it's laziness at its best!
