How to Complete Probation-Five Stumbling Blocks to Successfully Completing Your Probation

The final stumbling block:

5. Lack of dedication

While the first four are, for the most part, out of your control, a lack of dedication is entirely on you. This is the stumbling block where you and you alone take responsibility. A lack of dedication is simply not caring about your probation. You think that going out and drinking or partying with your friends is more important than doing your community service or worrying if you are going to test positive for narcotics at your next random testing. Understandably, the pressure can be immense when all your other friends are going out, living their lives, and doing whatever they want. But always keep this in mind—it is always YOUR choice on what YOU do and it is YOUR freedom on the line, not your friends. So make sure that you remind yourself of this throughout probation and stay dedicated to successful completion. You must also keep yourself motivated to do what is asked of you. This can be the most difficult. You may think it is too much or you will never be able to complete it. As stated in stumbling block 1, budget your time, make small, achievable goals along the way, and you will be done before you know it. Challenge yourself and try to keep a positive attitude about the situation because this too will pass.

At this point in my other guides I would do a summation or a closing thought. For this one, I have one thing to say—you can do anything you put your mind to and good luck.
