I do always read your mails but I just don’t subscribe in any of your celban prep or any course because its expensive and probably I can say I do lack of self determination in studying probably because I am just relax knowing my celban exam will be on October knowing I have a lot of time, but last week I tried the self assessment in celban website, only the listening part but I got only the score of 8 and they told me that I am not yet ready to take the exam. I feel frustrated but I didn’t do anything about it. What’s wrong me? I wanted to crush my head for not doing something about it or putting some effort in it. I just need to push my self, even now in answering your email, I just really need to push my self. I just need someone to hit my head on wall to wake me up that taking Celban is not a joke and It cost a lot of money. I am sorry if I am telling you this,but half of me wanted to give up saying that I cant make it that I am slow, but half of me saying that I am not a looser that I can make it and I can show my family back in my home that I can be a Canadian Nurse whether by hook or by crook.
Where can we find determination that is for sale?
It is so good to hear from you, again. Will I be getting your report, soon, for your assessment?
May I tell you, I love getting emails from you. I read yours last night, but decided to wait until today to reply, when I am more refreshed!
I appreciate that you are still reading my emails, although I have been waiting for your reply to my last email.
I know, the courses are expensive. After I got a lot of feedback about that I created a new plan, and changed the Tier 4 of the Compassionate Pricing Policy. You will be getting an email about that: it is one of the series. But it is the very last thing I can do about the prices.
I love how you admit, “I can say I do lack of self determination in studying probably because I am just relax knowing my celban exam will be on October knowing I have a lot of time, but last week I tried the self assessment.” Many people fall into that kind of unproductive thinking, and then they contact me one month before the exam asking for help. “I am sorry,” I tell them, “It takes time to master a skill; and taking the CELBAN is about mastering many skills in professional communication!” Sigh. And isn’t it interesting to discover what causes us to get into action? I love that the self-assessment was a motivation for you. (And just so you know, from your writing, the more time we have together, the better.)
I am taken aback by your wording,
I feel frustrated but I didn’t do anything about it. What’s wrong me? I wanted to crush my head for not doing something about it or putting some effort in it.

G, be kind to yourself! Everyone goes through times of lacking motivation. Why do you think my tag encouragement is so popular, with almost 1/4 of the posts on my blog with this tag? Because there are a lot of people feeling as you are. It is also why hope and encouragement are built into what we do at CELBANPrep. Because I know that preparing for an exam, while balancing life, isn’t just about English! And that is what makes CELBANPrep different!
I don’t think you need someone to hit your head into a wall. I think you need someone to say:
G, I know you can do this. You can do hard things. You have done hard things in the past. And you can do hard things in the future.
It isn’t about the money. Yes, the CELBAN is expensive, and you can only take it 3 times. But it is about your life, and your dreams.
What do you want to do with the rest of your life? Why did you become a nurse? Is it still your dream? And if so, is it a dream worth pursing.
But more importantly, do you value your health and your emotional well being? If you are under-motivated now, what is going to happen to you, internally, if you do not get the required score, knowing it is because of the unwise and procrastinating choices you have made?
Because, the reality is, G. It does not matter what happens outside of you. The well spring of motivation comes from hope, and that lies deep within. You can look to external sources, but they will deplete and vanish in time. To obtain your dreams, whether it is about being a nurse or something else, requires dedication; and, that comes from within.
So, G, it is time to pull up your socks and make a decision once and for all: DO YOU WANT TO BE A NURSE? Then what are you willing to do to make it happen?
Without asking these questions, and finding the determination within, you will remain “just relax[ed]” in the carnal security of your present existence.
So, G. Have you found the kind of coach you need to make your dreams a reality?
