Remember, you are a sum total of your habits. School is not just a place for learning; over 80% of our habits were formed when we were at school. During our time at school, we don’t only learn for life, we form habits for life.
The quality of your future life is then dependent on the habits we form when we were at school! Again, bad habits corrupts student’s destiny and good habits enhances student’s destiny!
Zig Ziglar said, “All bad habits are formed slowly and gradually and before you know you have the habit, the habit has you.” And Robert Gilbert said, “First we form habits and the habits form us. Conquer your bad habits or they’ll conquer you!” The habits you form today will determine your destiny tomorrow!
What are some of the good habits we form at school? We form the habit of learning, socializing, taking tests, respecting authorities, punctuality, hard working and many more! In one way or another, we also cultivate some bad habits at school through our association. Bad habits such as laziness, stealing, cheating, lying, loneliness, over spending, time wasting, procrastination, rudeness, indiscipline and fearfulness.
At school, you have to watch the habits you are forming. Your destiny after school will be determined by those habits you form. How?
You can write good resume and cover letter and get a good job after school. But if you are lazy, rude and fond of procrastination, your boss will fire you and you’ll sit back at home. You may also find out that you will not climb up in the ladder of career, success and finance.
Your habits also affect your character, relationships and trust rating. People will not trust you if they realize you tell lies and you don’t take your words seriously. Your may create relationships with good people, but those relationships will not grow. All these are as a result of bad habits developed at school.
