I have completed my Masters and I am a working professional for the past 4 years. Now I want to pursue my PH.D. course. But for that its a process of 5-6 years again, on top of that I have to do M.Phil too, (as I have heard from my mates) But somehow I am not getting the enthusiasm to take the step forward. I am worried, that joining a full time course will mean quiting my current job. Secondly, I am afraid, that long distance from education and learning has taken that thing out of me, I question myself 'Can I actually study now? Do I have that mental set up to read and learn regularly? Do I have the will power to give exams anymore?'
Its quite depressing sometimes, that I cannot muster up the courage to take a positive step towards my higher education. What can I do to bring back the determination?
