How To Succeed At School Part 1 (Get Motivated)

Which word would you use to describe how you view school
  • Boring or inspiring?
  • Frustrating or rewarding?
  • Stressful or enjoyable?

If your view of school is primarily negative, what can
you do about it? If you have a positive view of school,
how can you sharpen your skills so that you get even
more out of your education? We will outline five keys to success.

1) Get Motivated
To be motivated in any endeavor, you need to see its practical value.

WHAT is the practical value of school? It will help
you acquire wisdom, and “wisdom is for a
protection.”

How so? To illustrate:
Imagine that you are walking through a dangerous
neighborhood. Which would you prefer—to be
wandering alone or to be with a group of friends who
could protect you if necessary? With a good
education, you have several strong “friends” always
at your side. These include:

  • Thinking ability.
Going to school can help you develop what is called “common sense and sound judgment.” Acquiring these skills will help you to solve your own problems instead of always having to rely on others to bail you out.

  • Social skills.
Mixing with a variety of people at school gives you plenty of opportunity to master qualities like tolerance, respect, and empathy—traits that will serve you well in adulthood.

  • Practical training.
School can teach you the value of having a strong work ethic, which will help you to get a job and keep it. Also, the more you learn about the world around you, the better equipped you will be to know who you are and what you believe. Armed with such
conviction, you will be able to stand up for your
beliefs respectfully.

  • The bottom line:
Since you need an education, it will do you little good to dwell on the things you dislike about school. Instead, get motivated by considering the incentives noted above. You may even be able to think of a few more!

Why not get started? Think of your greatest
incentive for succeeding at school.

This is where we will be ending for today. See you next time.
