Not sure if David Goggins would be your style, but his autobiography was really powerful. You can try watching a few YouTube clips of him to see if he motivates you.

Haven't tried many self-help books other than Designing Your Life, but those tend to be longer commitments. Quick fix could be a pump-up song you like, cute puppy videos, or motivational YouTube videos.

I did not get a full time offer from my internship this past summer at a top consulting firm they told me on the second to last day. I have been trying to recruit at other consulting firms however haven’t received any offers yet. I struggle with severe depression and anxiety and often struggle with telling others when I struggle with it. I am having thoughts of ending it all because of the combined stress of school and now recruiting with little opportunities left.
