I had worked in a warehouse unloading trucks 60-70 hours per week during my summers at college. For a college student this was good pay but I just had to remind myself it was not what I wanted for the rest of my life. I definitely recommend working a difficult job while in college to keep yourself focused.

My first medical job and schooling was for medical assistant. I worked 2 jobs and went to school at night 4 days a week. I was motivated by my desire to become something. I was the first one in my family to go to college. I wanted to create a better life for myself and that has always been my drive.
I devoted all my free time to studying. I made flash cards and went to the study hall. The best advice I have is to do follow up and test reviews with your teacher on subjects you missed. Reach out to your teacher early for advise, especially if you are having a hard time.
After I became a medical assistant, I realized that I was really passionate about the healthcare field and furthered my education. The worst part about being a medical assistant was having to work 5 days a week.
I wished I would have done CNA instead of medical assistant. 1.) it was very expensive to complete MA school and sometimes you can find free CNA courses; 2.) CNA can work in the hospital with 3 days of 12hr shifts; 3.) CNA has more variety of shifts including nights and weekends.

Good luck! Find your passion and that will help motivate you!

I think it's easier if it's what you really want. If someone is trying to talk you in to going to medical school because it's what you "should" do, or because everyone in your family is a doctor, or if you're doing it so you can make a lot of money as a doctor, it's harder to stay motivated. If you really want to be a doctor you can do it. You have a million small steps along the way- passing your first test, learning to study, passing your first class, passing your first lab, learning your anatomy. If you tackle each day as it comes, eventually you look up and you've done it. Having friends and family as a support also really helps, but I know not everyone is lucky enough to have that. Good luck in anything you choose!
