The purpose of this topic of discussion is to get motivated by sharing quotes, stories, or personal experience that tell all candidates that if they're struggling with the CPA exam, they're not alone.

I believe that the Thomas Edison quote “Success is 10 percent inspiration and 90 percent perspiration" is very relevant to the CPA Exam taking process. I have never found myself being too-dumb to pass the Exam. I've always left the testing center kicking myself for not working harder.

Now let me share with another great quote made by Ralph Marston. "Make a promise to yourself and keep it. There's something that you've always desired, and now is the time to make it real.

You are fully capable of reaching whatever you decide to reach. Promise yourself something wonderful, and then do what it takes to fulfill that promise.

Stop groaning about how unfair life is. Start making life into something grand and joyful.

Every problem is an opportunity to make an improvement. Pick a particularly vexing problem and promise yourself that you'll get triumphantly beyond it.

Find a dream that positively inspires you and promise yourself that you'll reach it. Make a serious commitment to the richness of your own life, and follow through on that commitment.

You can do it if you'll simply choose to do it. Make a promise to yourself, and make it happen".

If you have an inspiring story, quote, or story and would like to share with other candidates, please do so. You will never know how much positive imapact you'll on others by sharing those personal inspiring stories.
