And yet Paul Molnar, professor and contributor to Two Views of the Doctrine of the Trinity, gives this advice:

"If you love what you're doing, then you'll do what it takes to get the job done."

Molnar shares some of his journey from adjunct to full-time professor at St. Johns to illustrate what's necessary to ensure success.

While he says there's no guarantee, Molnar encourages, "If you work extremely hard, and you are willing to make sacrifices...there is a really good chance you will have success."

Watch and listen to Molnar for inspiration for your own success. And keep his advice in mind as you wind down the semester, and, perhaps, your graduate student career.
