Remember the ingredient one? Being courageous is important especially for you to be able to socialize and make friends with your classmates. A little approach wouldn’t hurt your pride. You would be able to get some new friends as soon as you opened your mouth and showed who you are.
If you were able to do that, then good for you; if not, then keep trying! After that step, it’s time to move on. But this time, it’s not just gonna be a little step. It’s a big one. Because now, you have to set up your goals and become achievement-oriented.
By achievement oriented, it doesn’t require for you to become the best in class or get straight A’s or 100 in quizzes. It just means that passing is not just enough. Aim better in your academics! It’s not really hard as soon as you are clear with what you want to achieve.
Doing your best is always and will be better than being the best. People around you would even recognize you for your great efforts. Teachers would trust you more. But always remember, whenever a trust is levelled up, expectations arises with it. That means, professors expect more from you. So you shouldn’t let them down.
Achievement-orientedness is more of being positive with you and your academics. As soon as you were able to think independently on what you want to attain in your studies, then there wouldn’t be a problem anymore. For those who were able to this ingredient, it means that you are already something different. Better that those around you.
Always remember that having good grades and honours at school is always good, but learning and having wisdom is even better. You could have someone like those of your straight A’s but that one thing that would make you unique from them is your ability to use what you’ve learned and apply it in real-life problems.
