Be determined : You need to be determined to pay the price for the success. No success is obtained easily. You need to put in hours of hard work. Malcolm Gladwell, a famous author, has said that one has to practise 10000 hours in one’s vocation to be the top. Be determined to pursue your goal. Be a go-getter with a heart for people.
Be determined to achieve your goals. Write your goals on your study desk or beside your bed. Look at them daily and remind yourself you are on the way to obtaining your goals. Be focused on your goals.
Put off procrastination : How many times are your sidetracked because of fun activities that do not achieve your goals? Be determined to pay the price of success. If you have fun all the days, you may not be successful in the end. Say no to some invitations of your friends to play all day long.
Face the challenge : When difficulties arise in your studies, do not be put off. Have a positive attitude. Tell yourself that you can do it and overcome the challenges. Be determined to stay ahead of the competition and outperform your peers.
Have good study techniques : Study books on how to improve your memory and study skills. Know when is your best time to study a particular subject. Take short breaks when doing a long study. Psychologists have said that the attention span of a student is about 45 minutes. After 45 minutes of study, take a short break. Do something you like; then return to study.
Practice : Practise your assessment books and Ten Year Series. Practice makes perfect.
Ask questions : When in doubt, ask questions from your teacher or your peers. Do not be afraid to lose face.
Have good rest : Take adequate rest and sleep. Your mind will be more refreshed. Cut down on the entertainment and get some rest.
Exercise : Exercise will stimulate your brain and prepare you to be more fit for studies. Sports helps in training you to be disciplined. Joseph Schooling makes use of the disciplines he learns from swimming for his studies.
All the best for your tests, exams and school journey!
