During your studies, you will have breaking moments but those moments are the difference between the ones who succeed and the ones who don’t. Learn how to overpass those tough moments and you’ll be one step closer to your goal.

5. Make studies your first priority
It’s easy to forget what your priorities are, especially when you are far from your family if you study abroad.
While you are a medical student, your number one priority should be studies. The rest can wait; parties, family disputes, or even those moments in which you miss someone you love. You’re on the path of becoming a doctor and that should be your number one duty over all.
