Ten Steps to Being An A-Student in College
Being a student is easier than you think. This is because A-students are not always the smartest people in the class. But they have certain thoughts that allow them to succeed in school.
The qualities of the student-student
I have compiled a list of ten qualities that contribute to the thinking of an A-student. How many of them do you have?
- A student understands her goal of going to school. She knows that every class she attends contributes to this goal.
- A student wants to study. She knows that what she learns can potentially affect her view of the world and its place in it. She is ready to change her current beliefs and, perhaps, even her goals and aspirations in order to adapt to the new information she is acquiring.
- An A-student sees in every classroom an opportunity to approach his goals in life. She knows that successful people extract from many resources. They do not limit their knowledge and understanding. They do not live in a vacuum.
- A-student evaluates her past experience and uses them to assess the accuracy of the information she receives. She knows that knowledge does not exist outside the sphere of experience. She understands that every experience is a valid experience.
- An A-student is not shy to say when someone says something that sounds off topic. She believes she has the right to contribute to the conversation, both to enhance her own learning and understanding, and to educate and understand others.
- An A-student asks questions when she does not understand. She wants to make sure she gets the education for which she came. She does not expect her teachers to know what her problems will be.
- An A-student is not afraid to seek help when she needs it. She does not expect success in her life.
- A student knows that she needs to take care of herself. She knows that raising her body is just as important as improving her mind.
- An A-student knows that when she fights in the same course, it does not mean that she will never succeed in life. She uses her struggle to better understand her, and she uses this understanding to make the necessary adjustments so that she can continue to enjoy the life she leads.
- An A-student can sometimes decide that the time and energy needed to get A in a certain course are not worth it. She will be fine with the lower class, knowing that she herself has made the choice to devote her time and energy elsewhere.
Do you have an A-student mind? Can you bring it with you to every class you participate in?
