"Don’t put too much pressure on yourself. Things won’t always work out exactly the way you want them to. And that’s okay. What matters more is that you learn all you can from it. Everything is a learning experience. From the good, we can learn what to do. From the bad, we can choose to learn what NOT to do. So, when the inevitable happens and you make a mistake or fail, pause, let yourself feel all the feels, take note of what you could’ve done better, then move forward." - Coach Lyqa on Surviving the Struggles of University Life

"Never forget the reason why you are where you are. Whenever I feel unmotivated and down, I always remind myself that I'm not studying for myself but for the people, I will be helping in the future. Then I remember that a few sleepless nights and a few sacrifices are nothing compared to the lives I will be changing and the contributions I will make for my country once I finish my education." - Liz on Surviving the Struggles of University Life

Although it's not the definite self-help book, as not all the information posted is reliable, there are content creators such as Coach Lyka, Joshua, Sir Arjay, and Liz, who get it right.
