Achieving academic excellence is predictable; it’s an equation you have to work out by yourself.
S represents Study: This is the time and effort you personally commit to reading your book daily.
T represents Tutoring: This is the lessons you receive from teachers either in school or at home.
D represents Distractions: Social media, TV, Parties, Phones, Unserious friends are in this group.
E represents Excellence: The output is excellent academic performance
This is the equation that turns under-achieving students to high-flyers.
“You are 100% RESPONSIBLE for the RESULTS you get in LIFE”. Jack Canfield
The first step to getting the things you want out of life is to decide what you want. It starts with a decision to be the best. One of the main reasons why most students don’t get what they want is that, they haven’t decided what they want. They haven’t defined their desires in clear and compelling details.
Inside “You” is that tiny seed of greatness. You may have buried that seed in response to your parents, teachers, other adult role models and your peers as you grow older. You started out as a baby knowing exactly what you wanted. You knew when you were hungry, you spit out the food you didn’t like and devoured the ones you did. You had no trouble expressing your needs and wants. You simply cried out loudly – until you got what you wanted. You were clear about what you wanted and headed towards it with no fear.
Somewhere along the way, you heard words like…
You don’t really want that!
You should be ashamed of yourself!
Eat everything on your plate whether you like it or not.
You can’t have everything you want simply because you want it
Can’t you think of anybody but yourself?
After many years of hearing these sanctions, most of us lost touch of ourselves. We got stuck trying to figure out what other people wanted us to do. You have to start by not making these statements: “I don’t know, I don’t care, it doesn’t matter to me, or whatever.”
Take Action Now!
Responsibility = Response + I + Ability
Whenever you respond to your ability, you are being responsible. You must be intentional about what you want and be willing to do what it takes to achieve the result. Let’s take a look at our success equation:
(S + T) – D = E
