Dr. Myles Munroe said “Success is predictable! Failure is also predictable! Success is a result of decisions.” That means you can literally design, plan and predict your academic success. The reason you are getting poor grades at school, failing and falling behind is that you have not yet decided to excel, plan and take consistent progressive actions to get the best grades at school.
Why are you getting poor grades at school?
There are two basic reasons why you are not getting the best grades at school.
· The first is your desire.
· The second is your decisions.
· The third is your habits.
Develop a Strong Burning Desire to Excel
Napoleon Hill said, “The starting point to all success is desire.” The starting point to your academic success is a strong, compelling desire to achieve high and better grades. If you can’t cultivate this desire, nobody can help you.
You need to have a drive to excel; a drive to be the best; a drive to achieve more; a drive to be excellent; a drive to get the best results in any subject of study. You must be obsessed about becoming the best and being at the top in all your academic endeavours.
Highly Successful Students have a strong burning desire to be the best. Unsuccessful students have no burning desire to become the best. It is this lack of desire and drive for success that makes them to get poor grades at school.
Decide to Get the Best Results in All Your Academic Endeavours
Enough is enough! You must get to the top. You’ve got to have a strong burning desire that drives and compels you to move up and achieve your academic goals. But more importantly, you have to decide to make it big!
Success is determined by decisions. You have to decide that you want to get the best grades in every course of your study at school. And when I mean, “Decision”, I mean “I will do it or I will die”. I mean, “No Excuse is Acceptable”. I mean, “I cannot but to get the best result!”
To decide means you have resolved to achieve the best grades and you are willing to do all that it takes to achieve those results. It means you are willing to go the extra mile to achieve those results. It means you are willing to go against the normal rule and code to achieve your results.
Develop the Habits of Successful Students
Successful students have a set of habits that keeps them at the top. When you develop the habits of highly successful students and maintain those habits, success will follow you like your shadow and you can’t get rid of it.
Your habits, attitudes, way of life, core beliefs and behaviours play a critical role in your academic success! The more you build successful habits and eliminate unsuccessful habits, the better you become and the better your results.
