Here are a few secrets to I share with college students throughout the world to improve their GPA, that is to Generate Power Academically:
1. Remember why you are studying.
School is a pathway and bridge to dream fulfillment. It is not the totality of your life, nor should it be allowed to fully define your life. Nevertheless the reality is good grades reveal an aspect about your life, how disciplined you are or are not. Therefore school is a place to build mental muscle and show off.
Approach academics with this mindset realizing that you are a student today, but tomorrow a prospective employee who shall be seeking a job with resume in hand. Your grades (or lack thereof) will be a signal to your future employer as to the quality of your character, extent of your skills, and depth of your mental acumen.
2. Say no to that which is good to wholeheartedly attend to that which is best.
Earnestly hold to your academic focus remembering that it will pay mighty dividends to you by way of future professional opportunities and even scholarships (if you do well) academically. Hence scoring high marks in school can save you financially, while simultaneously catapulting you forward professionally.
3. Show me your friends and I will show you your future.
The only way to elevate yourself and go to the next level economically in life is by way of the people you associate with and the books you read. Cultivating intelligence, wisdom and skill will empower you to live your dreams. To neglect to do so will abandon you with purposeless people on a dead end street leading to destruction.
Before dismissing the importance of education, take a check up from the neck up, reevaluate your ideas, and regain your focus.
