Being successful in one’s academic career depends on his learning strategies. Students want to enhance their academic achievements but they are unsure about the ways to correct their weakness.
What will be the output if someone is there to guide us to the successful path of academics?
The answer to this question is that the output will be a successful human. His success depends on his focus related to skill development, integrating best practices, self-assessment and peer interaction. It is the dream of a school student to get an admission in a high ranking university. After graduating the student wants to pursue his/her academic excellence to earn a lot of money and find bliss on the personal and professional front.
Let us look at some of the strategies that can be followed to get successful in life. These strategies are sure to make a student well equipped with tools that are needed to win in their academic sessions.
According to positive psychology, when someone guides you and reframes your thinking, a method is generated in the body that gauges your ability and weakness. Thus, knowing your strengths and using them effectively to step up the ladder of success becomes the key factor to fulfill the objectives of life.
How to review your strength and weakness? It’s easy to make a list of your strengths but a bit difficult to find your weaknesses. An idea is to write down all the weak points when one fails to meet a deadline or get a black star, like time management issues, higher and unrealistic goals, disturbed relationship, or perfectionism. It serves as a reference to overcome the weakness in the next assignment.
Thus, a key is to examine the situation and make a plan to overcome or minimize your weakness and maximize your strength. This will give the academic success as well as personal fulfilment.
Academics need hard work and revision regularly. A student needs to set aside some definite hours to read the textbooks, make notes, finish homework and assignments. Revision regularly in a quiet environment will improve grades.
So, students who have a knack with time management keep track of important dates and deadlines. They not only submit their assignments timely but get ahead of other fellow students by preparing for the upcoming class and by solving the most challenging questions beforehand. A student can stay organized by making a handwritten timetable and plans for the next and coming days.
The activity of the brain gets blocked when it works for prolonged hours. Good grades do not come your way if you study nonstop and make your brain dumb. It can restrict the brain’s processing of information if you do not take short breaks.
According to a study, if the brain gets short and regular intervals of free time in between deep learning, it helps to assimilate more. In this short break, one can indulge in a quick walk or exercise to freshen up the mind and loosen the stiffness and fatigue of the body.
Being happy about what you are doing is the best form of exercise to get success. A positive person is happy and successful. A student needs to select the best subject according to his ability and liking, and not according to future job prospects. Also, he should pursue hobbies and get himself engaged in personality development activities to accomplish his goal. But, the priority should be to build positivity around oneself.
Keep the company of positive-minded people who will motivate you. You can even study with a friend that may keep your mind engaged as well as relieve stress. A study partner shares notes, work on difficult lab assignments and review test sessions with you. Studying with a friend avoids unnecessary distraction and enhances learning.
Getting out of comfort zone in difficult times but not leaving the positive attitude will keep one motivated and bring success. And when you are in a win-win situation, be grateful to your teachers, seniors and friends. You can even write good things that happened to you in the process. Reading them again will bring a smile on your face.
The person gives his 100 per cent effort while executing each plan of his life. One needs to prepare himself for all the obstacles and difficulties that come in his way of achieving success. This can be done by building resilience and a positive attitude. Thus, consistent hard work and positive approach will leave no stone unturned.
The strategies are simple yet help you to grow and find a balance between life and your goals. Success is as told by Jim Rohn-
