Advice to Fit Education Students

Set goals not limits. Ie. You should always have a goal you are aiming to achieve, whether that be to just get your next assessment done or if it’s longer term to coach a professional sports team or athlete. And don’t limit yourself, if you want to do something don’t be afraid to aim high and go after it
