I’m not able to concentrate on my studies

I am 14 years old and in Std IX. I am not able to concentrate on my studies. No matter how much I make myself concentrate on studies, still I am not able to. My problem is that I study just one day before the exams and then also I am not able to concentrate. Whenever I sit down to study my mind gets diverted to other things. Because of this my marks have gone down. Please help.

Dear Stuti, your lack of concentration in your studies proves that you are not well motivated to succeed in life and make your parents happy. Don’t you feel the desire to achieve a good position in life, help your family and make them proud of you? Without a good education it will be impossible for you to come up in life. Why do you want to waste the beautiful life God has given you?
