Yield not to be a mediocre

A mediocre is an average student who has no particularly outstanding features he/she will always submit to pass a course and not to excel in a course of study. Even when it seems challenging to achieve encourage yourself with the words of Napoleon Hill “You have to allow a challenge to shape you, embrace them, accept them” for every obstacle and failure carries with it the seed of equivalent benefit or advantage.

See yourself as a champion

Do not be overwhelmed by a demanding course so to speak (as many students will call it difficult course but I tag it demanding course) even when all seems not to work out well, see yourself as a champion. “Defeat doesn’t finish a man quit does. A man is not finished when he is defeated, He’s finished when he quit” Ricard M. Nixon. Never quit, never say I cannot, stand up, take up the challenge and say I am a champion, I will not quit and I will not be defeated.

“Many of life’s failure are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up” Thomas Edison.

Envelope yourself in updated materials related to your course of study

It is a mere joke to say you want to be at the peak of your career without relevant and updated materials to study. Always go an extra mile it gives an additional knowledge.

Yawn to succeed

You are created to succeed and not to fail. Never admit to being a failure but remember that making it in life is not by mere profession(A declaration of belief, faith or of one’s opinion) but putting it into action. A positive decision is the panacea to a problematic course.


Anything worthwhile creating and achieving takes time, sacrifice and effort and each fruit needs time to ripe. You have to sacrifice your totality if truly you want to succeed. Hard work is the panacea to hopelessness. With sacrifice, you get hold of the key to success with ease.
