NBA 2K14 My Player Guide: Strategies and Tips for a Perfect My Career

Published

on

BA 2K14 My Player coverBasically the only game mode I play in NBA 2K14 is MyCareer, where I try to take My Player to the top of the NBA leaderboards – and with some patience and smart play, that’s not going to be too difficult. Therefore, I am here to share with you an NBA 2K14 My Player guide and hopefully guide you through great seasons, tons of SP to spend and an easy way to ultimate glory. Because Lebron might be the official legend of the game, but we’re about to create a new one.

So if you are like me and you love to spend all your game time in the My Career mode, this NBA 2K14 My Player guide should come in handy. So let’s get this started with… the beginning!

Creation of your player

You start by creating the MyPlayer persona as soon as you load NBA 2K14 for the first time, but after starting the MyCareer mode, there’s more (and extremely important) tinkering to do. We usually spend a lot of time (at least I do) on the aesthetic part and tend to ignore what matters the most: skills, attributes and height – position ratio.

In other words, if you want to be a fast PG, then you need a short player and if you want to rule under the rim, get your player over 6.7. Height, however, is not the only important aspect in basketball and NBA 2K14: position and play style also matter a lot. We have three special styles for each position and three that are identical to all positions and the biggest mistake, in my opinion, would be to go for an “all around” player. Your MyPlayer guy will be pretty sucky at first and it’s better to have him specialize early to earn points in specific areas easier and therefore make it easier to invest in your player’s future.

I would recommend going for the shooting skills, especially because being a top scorer is the most fun way to play the game, right? The choice still goes hand in hand with the position you’re playing – don’t get the 3 point expert skill for a Center who would do better with an increase in the Rebound skills, for example. So, in the end, think at how you’re most likely going to play the game and specialize in those skills. Becoming a good all around player will take time.

How to choose the best team

I didn’t pay much attention to this, I tried to offer the best answers to all interviews and I ended up being selected by Portland. Now they do have a good team for the future, but they won’t win many games at first, and you need a team that wins in order for you to get that nice boost from the wins bonus.

NBA 2K14 players

You will have three interviews and the teams will select you (or not) based on your performance during the Rookie Challenge. The best idea would be to have a mediocre performance (B to B+) in order to get drafted after the first 10 players and have bigger chances of getting a better team. Although you won’t know what teams are interested in you, there’s a trick if you find one that you’d like to play: offer the best answers to it and then completely snub the others. You will know if you gave the right answers at the end of the interview, when the GM will say something like “we really liked your answers”.

The Most Important Season: Your Rookie Year

Earning a ton of skill points (and spending them wisely) is what matters the most during your Rookie Year and if you play your games right, you can easily become a top player early on. We’ll start earning skill points with the drills system – which is even worse and more boring than in NBA 2K13, but every bit of extra SP helps, so you’ll have to do these on a weekly basis. And make sure you win them – so go for the easiest drills for your player (in my case, the shooting challenge). Just make sure you always get at least a Bronze reward, because otherwise it’s just wasted time and a loss of valuable Skill Points.

Fortunately, it’s not the drills that matter that much, it’s the games you’ll play. At first, you won’t get too much play time so instead of trying to be the star player (which you won’t be able to be, because your stats are really low), try to get the best possible rating by being a good team player: perform well in defense by sticking to your man, hit those good passes and set a lot of screens for your teammates. Play it safe and nice, stack up some skill points and most important, contribute to getting more minutes: the better your rating, the sooner you’ll become a starting player.

NBA 2K14 Player scoring

The focus during your Rookie Season is to improve your main skills based on the type of player that you are. If you want to be a scoring freak, focus on those cheaper mid range shots or lay ups and traffic shots and ignore the three pointers because they are so expensive. You will also need to invest a little in your ball skills and passing, but otherwise pretty much ignore everything. The better your shot ratings are, the more likely you are to get the “Good shot selection” bonus, which matters a lot for improving your overall rating.

Only after you’re a true specialist in your area, start piling up the SP and using them on shaping the true superstar you really are.

Don’t forget about the GM meetings

We also have the GM meeting feature in NBA 2K14, and you should take advantage of it: you can get more play time or even help taking a player you don’t like out. Or when you feel that it’s time to move on, that’s where you will have to start your search. So the general idea here is: if you don’t like something, go speak with the GM!

Be a Team Player & Play Real Basketball

I know that being a one man show is the most entertaining thing you could want from a game, but NBA 2K14 is a simulation and it challenges you to be a real basketball player. So play for the team, stick to your assignment, pass to your teammates when they are in open positions and have them score too. Especially during the first couple of seasons, you won’t be able to win games by yourself and you need to win games for the best SP rewards. So if you really want to make it big, make sure you are a team player!

So for now, this would be my guide for the NBA 2K14 My Player – My Career mode. Do you have further advice to offer? I’ll be more than happy to hear it in the comments section below!

    Thanks!

    Having never played basketball myself, nor watch it ever, I really struggle to be a good position player. Very frustrating at first, when your player basically sucks..

    I promoted to being a starter for Indiana in the second game of the second season, but man can this game be frustrating… Love it haha

    In NBA 2K14, I am a SF/PF rookie (PLAY STYLE: ALL-AROUND)playing for the Milwaukee Bucks. I have 2 questions?
    1. For the Euro Step Layup, the Hop Step Layup, and other types of layups, I start each of them off with a 55 rating. When I looked through all abilities I can increase (OFFENSE, DEFENSE, PHYSICAL, and MENTAL), those types of layups are not there. How do I increase the ratings of each of them.
    2. For most of my Athleticism abilities (Vertical, Stamina, Durability, etc.), the max is 90. In fact, none of my abilities at all can get to 99; the highest I can get on some abilities is 92 (except for Emotion – for some reason, I was already given a 99 out of 90 on that). When I look at other players at my position in the game, some of their abilities go past 92, in fact, I saw some 99’s for some players. How do I get mine past 90 or 92, or whatever the number might be?

      You have to buy the Acrobat signature skill, because it says you get a boost to your Euro Step Layup, Hop Step Layup and other finishing moves for every level you increase. It’s really expensive though around like 5000 VC

    • Matt_gordo_626

      January 11, 2014 at 7:04 pm

      Increase shot in traffic and lay ups it will improve euro n hop steps

    • the beast

      February 11, 2014 at 10:40 pm

      for number 1 u make your lay ups to the max and it wil do it to all the lay ups

    How do I increase max SP levels? Want to get posterizer and I have dunk maxed, but it maxes out at 85.

    • Dalton

      November 27, 2013 at 5:27 am

      You don’t. You can get around it though with skills and your own shoes you make when you get them. Some skills will like one man fast brake that boots your speed and quickness by up to 5. Your shoes can be any thing you want. To change what your skills max out at you have to make a new player with a different role, like be a all around player or a 3 point guy.

    My tv is a bit broken, so I cant see my challenges during games when it pops up, is there any way to see these in the pause menu or something ? I Keep failing the challenges cuz I dont know what they are lol

    • SB

      November 26, 2013 at 6:13 pm

      During play, hit start to pause the game. Go to performance and scroll down to the bottom the screen where your dynamic challenges are displayed.

    what type of signature skills would you recommend for athletic point guards??

    • Dalton

      November 27, 2013 at 5:17 am

      Catch and shoot is really good. You can run around your guy get a pass then shoot for easy FGs.

    I’ve played about 6 seasons with my PG/SG. His current status is Starter but is there a way i can change the status to Star? I’ve won assist titles and scoring titles but it still won’t let me.

    • Dalton

      November 27, 2013 at 5:13 am

      To be a star you have to be chosen for the all star team a couple of times. By that I mean you have to be a starter. I got to be a star after my third time.

    You are probably eating your words now. Portland won’t be able to win many games, eh? Third best record in the league after 12 games. They’re a very sold and deep team.

    • Calin Ciabai

      November 22, 2013 at 7:26 am

      Yeah, but in my game they’re still not doing very good :))

    • JoshFarc

      April 19, 2014 at 6:35 pm

      I agree, I wasn’t too glad to get picked to the Blazers as a SF (all-around) with Batum at SF starting, took me about 20 games (10-12 min quarters) putting up insane scoring numbers (69%FG 50%3pt 93%FT) on 38ppg, 5rpg, 5apg, 2.0spg, 1.1bpg in just 24 minutes a game too. But the game really is smart. After I played 3 games in a row of 30ppg, 10+rpg, 10+apg, 3+spg, 3+bpg my guy finally took over starting SF, though Batum is no longer a 6th man and they don’t seem to trade him (how the hell do I trade him for value?)

      But the Blazers and my career are 22-6 right now, 1 game ahead of the Heat for best record in the game. Lillard, Mathews, LMA, MoWill, Batum, all great shooters, Lopez and TRob nice inside.

      I am curious to why the MyCareer GM AI sucking. We won 11 in a row with Lopez starting at Center getting 32mins (anchoring the D and 14ppg 11rpg 2.5bpg) but now Lopez is like 12th man with 2k beast Thomas Robinson starting at PF and Aldridge at C. We still have maintained a great record, but most the games are close now as we have no shot blocking Lopez to anchr the D…. I WANT TO TALK TO GM!

    I have a question. If i want to be a good shooting guard, like Kobe Bryant or James Harden, wich length, lbs and play style i need? And in wich atributes i need to spend my skill points on?

    • KENTOY :p

      June 7, 2014 at 5:30 pm

      Your length should be 6’5 or 6’6, your lbs should be 200 lbs too 216 lbs. You should also spend you attributes in the mental category the CONSISTENCY thing, yeah you would be like a combination of D-Wade and James Harden…. :)

      On PC go to start menu (windows 7) and in Search program and files type %appdata% with % ! in roaming folder find Nba folder and in save folder delete everything you want.That is for creating a new player. New carrer start in game mode -> new game. dunno what you meant xD

    • Calin Ciabai

      December 10, 2013 at 9:26 am

      You can do this via a GM meeting. It might be possible that a number of games must be played before you can ask for a transfer.

    December 14, 2013 at 11:05 pm

    Is there any ways of seeing what teams are interested in you before you ask for a trade. Or can you change your mind about the trade if u see u will go to a poo team.

    • Catfish_gilly

      December 18, 2013 at 12:06 am

      Your manager asks what team you’d like to play for, then when you ask to be traded it shows you who’s interested. Then you pick 3. I got traded to a team I didn’t select.

  15. Jerome

    December 17, 2013 at 8:07 pm

      Yes, you go below where it says player upgrades. It say equip upgrades. Go in there and it will be the first thin that comes up.

      January 10, 2014 at 10:27 pm

      I would recommend doing the dribbling drill through the cones, very easy to get gold every time. On the dummy guards a simple spin is a good way to get around them.

  19. Michael

    January 7, 2014 at 9:01 am

    is there a specific play that got you all those easy assists. I’m also an athletic PG/SG

    • Habs

      March 23, 2014 at 8:05 pm

      I’m an all around pg/sg player for OKC. I usually do pick&rolls with center/pf (like Ibaka). Once i come out the that pick, either i slide to the basket or slide out to make a pass to the sliding player or inside to the player near the rim. Works well for me.

    • Nashit

      January 7, 2016 at 6:25 pm

      the easiest way to get an assist is that u get the ball ,dribble around,wait for till the last 3secs on the shot clock , then pass to a teammate. Make sure he is good so that the shot goes in and u will get the assist . :D

    how do i increase my abiltiy ratings?

  21. James

    January 25, 2014 at 3:44 am

    So I have a 6’5″ Athletic PG, I’ve won 2 Nba titles, selected to all three all-star games since rookie year, MVP 2 times, Three point contest winner, League leader in points, assists, blocks, rebounds, & steals 2 years running. I’ve gotten nearly all of my achievements for retirement. Play all 82 games with 12 minute quarters, but the most they’ll offer me is 1625 SP for 5 years with a player option. I just wanna know what’s the most they’ll offer before I accept the GM’s offer. BTW I play for the Pistons. Another question I’m wondering is why are all my teammates ratings taking a negative impact even though team chemistry is at 100%? Is anyone else having the same problem?

    • doeboi

      January 27, 2014 at 12:29 am

      Im same problem and same team.

    • b train

      February 5, 2014 at 1:28 am

      Ya same problem, different team, but have had negative ratings for the last half season. 90% team chemistry and still retarded. Ranging from -1 to -3. Try to get them involved, I pass to everyone, get the ‘Good ball movement’ all the time, but nothing has helped. Haven’t tried doing a team dinner or meeting yet, maybe that would help.

    • DimLi

      February 17, 2015 at 12:56 am

      I think thats the max you can get so early.To max out you must pass the 4 year length contract after the the 2+1 rookie contract…wich means 7 years minimum in one team or 6 if you get transfered in rookie year or early in the second and get smaller contract then 4 year after 2+1 contract as rookie…as SG in bulls i got after the 6th year 5 year cotract more the 2000 sp(i think 2500 but not sure) cause my first and second year i was louzy player(low ratings, new to the game) and only got 3 year extention contract, but by then my player had rating about 85 overall and started making good plays,so when 6 years passed bulls maxed out for my player…alternative way is after year one playing almost all games in Season 1 play get good ratings then start playing key games for less games more sp and after 6-7 rings you max out… :)

      to get selected in the dunk contest and threepoint shotting contest you have to be selected in the all star and rasing star games and to get there you have to get the averege of the top 20 in the whole league as a shoter defender and the all game stats

Creating Story Worlds Together Using Web3: The Rise of Tokenized Lore

Creating Story Worlds Together Using Web3: The Rise of Tokenized Lore

In the ever-evolving landscape of digital storytelling, a new chapter is being written, one that merges the realms of blockchain technology and creative storytelling. This innovative approach is not just changing the way stories are told but also how they are created and owned. Welcome to the world of “Tokenized Lore,” where blockchain, companies, Decentralized Autonomous Organizations (DAOs), and fans all converge to create immersive story worlds for mutual benefit.

The Concept of Tokenized Lore

Tokenized Lore is a revolutionary concept that we’ve been developing as part of our CLAN project.  We have taken inspiration from Japanese manga’s “Doujinshi” culture.  In Doujinshi, fans create their own stories based on existing, popular characters and worlds. They not only write stories but they publish them and sell them.  And this is tolerated in Japan as a core part of the Manga culture.  Marvel, DC, and American comic book companies don’t allow this and would surely serve a cease-and-desist lawyer’s letter to any fans that tried to sell comics with their copyrighted characters.

Similarly, our Tokenized Lore allows fans to become co-creators, not just passive consumers. By tokenizing elements of a story – characters, plot points, worlds – fans can own a piece of the story, both literally and figuratively. This not only incentivizes fan creations but also monetizes their efforts, turning passionate followers into active stakeholders in the story’s universe, who promote and grow it.  Everyone wins.

More about Tolkenized Lore has been written by Sasha Kapustina, where she also coined the word “Tokies” to describe this particular type of non-fungible token.  Read about that here:   https://thedefiant.io/age-of-tokies 

Blockchain: The Backbone of Tokenized Storytelling

At the heart of Tokenized Lore is blockchain technology. It ensures the authenticity and uniqueness of each story element, making them collectible and tradable. Blockchain’s transparency and security enable a trustless environment where creators and fans can collaborate without fear of unauthorized duplication or loss of ownership rights.

LightningWorks has additionally layered on Forging, to help create scarcity through diminishing supply.  This mimics the real world scarcity of print comics, adding a much needed cornerstone to digital collectibles in general that I hope will be copies across the space, since it adds so much value.

LightningWorks and Alien Worlds: Pioneers in the Field

Two notable players in this arena are LightningWorks and Alien Worlds. These companies have invested years and millions of dollars to develop deep tech stacks that will make Tokenized Lore a reality. Their platforms are not just storytelling mediums; they are ecosystems where creators, fans, and investors can interact, trade, and build together.

Following the success of Starblind Zero, LightningWorks first introductory comic created for the Alien Worlds community with a Galactic Hubs grant, they are now greenlit for a double-issue of the soon to be released, Starblind #1. https://alienworlds.io/galactic-hubs/ 

The Role of A.I. in Creative Acceleration

An inevitable aspect of this new storytelling paradigm is the integration of A.I. tools. These technologies empower artists, colorists, writers, and comic book creators to accelerate their production processes. 

By automating certain tasks, A.I. enables creators to focus more on the creative aspects of storytelling and less on marketing or administrative duties. This shift allows for more time to be spent on innovation and artistic expression. Fans benefit too, because they get stories faster, keeping them more emotionally connected to the events of their favorite characters.  

At LightningWorks we believe that with the right tools, comic book artists, writers, and others with real talent and creativity, will find new ways to gain financial and creative freedom using their experience and skills, rather than being replaced by A.I.

From Disney’s Ashes, A New Hope Rises

Interestingly, the missteps of giants like Disney with their handling of the Star Wars and Marvel universes have inadvertently opened doors for new storytelling ventures. Disenchanted fans are currently seeking fresh narratives and more respectful treatment of beloved characters.  We want them to find solace in these new, decentralized story worlds. Here, their voices and contributions are not just heard but valued and rewarded.

The Future of Storytelling

As we step into this new era of storytelling, the potential is immense. Here are some key points to consider:

  • Empowering Creators and Fans: Tokenized Lore blurs the line between creator and consumer, empowering fans to be an integral part of the storytelling process.
  • Monetization and Ownership: Fans can earn from their creations, providing a new revenue stream for creative endeavors.
  • Decentralization of Storytelling: By leveraging blockchain and DAOs, the storytelling process becomes more democratic, with decisions and developments influenced by a wider community.
  • Enhanced Creative Process: With A.I. integration, creators can enhance their productivity, focusing on storytelling while technology handles the mundane.

In conclusion, the marriage of blockchain technology and creative storytelling through Tokenized Lore represents a bold new direction in the world of entertainment. It’s a world where fans are no longer just spectators but active participants, where their passion and creativity are not just welcomed but rewarded. 

As we witness the rise of platforms like LightningWorks and Alien Worlds, one thing is clear: the future of storytelling is here, and it’s decentralized, democratized, and dazzling.

12 Inspiring Ways to Fuel Your Dissertation Writing Motivation

12 Inspiring Ways to Fuel Your Dissertation Writing Motivation

The writing process is inherently complicated. But once you take ownership of your writing, things begin to change. What does that mean to take “ownership” of your writing? It means your writings belong to better or for worse, to you and you alone. If you screw up your courage to write, your ownership of that writing must be respected by your audience-of one or a thousand. Being overly stimulated can also be harmful, as some scholars push to write their academic papers more than their set goals. That is why you need to have dissertation writing motivation so that you can find yourself able to meet your goal the next day.

As William G. Perry Jr. said, “First you make a mess, then you clean it up.” So, don’t give
up if you make a mess first. But if you’re allergic to handling this mess, it’s recommended
that you look for a dissertation writing service online.

In this article, we are going to explain some inspiring ways to fuel your dissertation writing motivation. Continue reading the Article if you need motivation for your thesis or dissertation writing journey.

In this article, we are going to explain some inspiring ways to fuel your dissertation writing motivation. Continue reading the Article if you need motivation for your thesis or dissertation writing journey.

Staying motivated while writing your dissertation is as important as having your dinner because you need food to live and motivation to complete your dissertation. Keeping up with the motivation to write a dissertation becomes harder when you see everyone on a break. Losing motivation can cost you low grades. So, we have provided some top tips to keep your motivation going.

1. Free-writing and Making a Mess

You might think how making a mess can help you get your dissertation writing done. Freewriting is one of those activities in which two and two sometimes add up to five. Freewriting can support you develop an addiction to writing. And don’t worry, almost everyone starts out writing crap.

Start with the small task, learning to write 10 minutes daily. Just start writing no matter what you write. Once you start following freewriting, your thoughts will start to get clearer and cleaner. Once your thoughts get clearer and you seem familiar with your topic, you start out writing good stuff, and then gradually, writing a dissertation becomes easier.

2. Using Behavioural Principles

Using behavioural principles for motivation for your dissertation writing, keep in mind the positive and negative reinforcement. It’s possible to train your mind by punishing yourself for doing something wrong, but it’s inhuman.

So, think of positive reinforcement, like rewarding yourself for each accomplishment. Like using the “Grandma’s mashed potatoes law”: “No dessert until you’ve eaten

your mashed potatoes.” Translated into a writing strategy, say you will get something as a reward for writing 2 or 5 pages that you don’t want to live without. For example, if you don’t feel the day is complete without reading the newspaper or talking to a friend, don’t allow yourself to do so unless you have completed your writing goal for that day.

3. Recognise External vs. Internal Motivation

When you start your degree or write your dissertation, motivators like a degree, a good job, and praise might drive you. However, over the period, one needs to develop internal motivators, like personal interest, passion for the topic, or will to bring a change to the field.

To get long-term motivation, it is necessary to develop an interest in the field. Once your work or profession becomes your passion, you no longer need external motivators.

4. Set Your Daily Writing Goal

It’s important to set daily goals for your dissertation writing motivation. There are three methods for setting goals, but before that, you need to commit to setting realistic goals and dividing them into small chunks.

  1. The first method is the “Sit There Method.” In this method, you sit down to write your dissertation forcertain hours, maybe three hours, a day.
  2. The second method is the “Motivation Method” In this method, you plan on writing each day until you come up with one or two decent ideas.
  3. The third method is the “Many Pages Method”. In this method, you have to pick a fair number of pages and keep the count the same every day.

In our opinion, the “Many Pages Method” performs the best. This method produces a large volume of writing, at least some of which is likely to be useful.

5. Don’t Overwhelm Yourself

Getting stuck and getting out of mind while writing a dissertation is normal. Don’t overwhelm or frustrate yourself on that. If you feel you are going in a circle and not moving forward to some achievement towards completion of the final draft of your dissertation. Just continue writing anything other than your papers. Try limiting your writing time. Say to yourself, “You’re only allowed to write for half an hour.”

Also, try consulting some mentor or advisor to discuss the overall situation of your writing process. If you find no way out, reaching out to a professional dissertation writer is still an option.

6. Funky Exercises for Times When You’re Stuck

If you were always inspired to be a poet, it’s your chance. Write in other forms of writing. Take some time to re-evaluate your writing goals. Many people get stuck in their dissertations because they set unrealistic goals for their writing process.

out of reach goals may kill your motivation. You need to decide practically, not ideally, what a doable writing goal is for you and then start working. Revisit the notes made in the research process and evaluate if you’ve missed any important points. Instead, trying to ask yourself questions or writing about why you feel you’re stuck is a good exercise to do.

7. Keep Encouraging Yourself

Keep repeating encouraging and motivational phrases to yourself. Like “I am capable of completing this dissertation, challenges are opportunities for me to grow and improve.”

Remind yourself of why you started. What did you want to accomplish on the task when you started? Remind yourself that completing this dissertation will open new doors for you.

Saying these affirmations regularly will give you more energy and keep you on track with your dissertation writing motivation.

8. Overcome Procrastination

Procrastination is delaying the work at hand without any reason. In writing a dissertation, procrastination is when you delay writing even though you want to finish it. You face it when you have to make a lot of decisions. Decisions drain your energy and make you feel procrastinated.

That is why you need to pre plan your dissertation writing process. Pre-decide things like which information to add and which to avoid. Don’t think before you start writing about how many pages to write today or if you should write or visit some friend for an outing.

9. Develop a Writing Addiction

Addictions get pretty bad press. But there are bad and good ones. Writing can be one of the good habits to have, or we say, fortunate habits to have. Having an addiction and developing an addiction are two separate things.

To develop a writing addiction, you need to start writing in the first place. A good option is to start writing your dissertation with a freewriting style. Once you find joy and fulfilment in the writing process and a sense of accomplishment from your crafts, you will build a habit of writing.

Habits slowly and gradually become addictions as you get addicted to pouring your heart out and getting praise from your crafts.

10. Overcome Interruptions from Inside and Outside

The interruptions from inside can be your mental conditions, like having anxiety or depression due to some personal or family issues. And factors like unexpected illness or death of some loved ones or a cold that clogs your nose and throat.

You need to overcome these interruptions to focus on writing your dissertation. Everybody can thrash these obstacles to focus on the work. If they had not, they might not have come thus far.

11. Don’t Isolate Yourself

Isolating yourself while writing your dissertation can drain all the motivation you had when you started working. We have seen scholars suffering from isolation while writing their dissertations.

You should try to abstain from writing for longer periods, distract yourself through family time and make plans for healthy activities. You can join some feedback groups; observing the dissertation and engaging with the group will help you think critically about the text, and you will get rid of solitude as well.

12. Join a Summer Dissertation Camp

Joining a summer dissertation camp or fellowship will keep you motivated and active. You can also find time to analyse your dissertation critically and make changes in the writing process.

Plus, you will not get stuck at any stage. If you get stuck, you will have the fellows or someone to advise you on the process, someone who can point out what you’re doing wrong. Joining a summer dissertation camp will save you from isolation as well.

Conclusion

Dissertation writing motivation may disappear more often, and you might think to quit. But quitting is not the solution. In this article, we have tried to inspire and motivate you in different ways. We have discussed how overcoming procrastination and setting your daily goals can help you stay motivated.

We have heard the stories of people who are in their third, fourth, or even seventh year, yeah, you heard it right, seventh year, and some people isolate themselves in the struggle to be focused. That’s not a good thing to do either. Those scholars who don’t find the motivation to write their dissertation or are not into writing can buy dissertation online. Hand over your worries to some trustworthy expert who can write original content for your dissertation and complete it quickly.
