I do not know anyone out there who likes to have to live paycheck to paycheck. I certainly do not want to continue to do it. Getting my Diploma/GED will help me move forward into getting a better job that I might not be able to get if I do not have it. Also, if I get my Diploma/GED, I will be able to continue with my education and open even more doors to being financially stable. This would be the number one step to moving forward in any career.
Mohanad R. Mohsen WG4a Alisha 8/14/ 2013 E1D1 Cash for good grades Motivation is the power that pushing us to do things we have to do, things that we know very well they required to achieve our goals. And only students who stay motivated about their study make success. But the secret here is find the good reasons behind this motivation, and the paying for the students for good grades seem like sending the wrong messages to make them doing well for the wrong reasons and this causes future negative effects. Responsibility doesn’t always come with rewards like people don’t get money for keep their houses clean or for eating healthy meals. If we paid for students when they get good grads may be this habit will stick with them for life.
Second, when you have studied, you should organize yourself. A specific and logical plan is a valuable guide book for you during the process to become success. Besides, you need to develop your time management habits in order to catch up with your schedule. For example, if you were dealing with an extremely difficult math assignment for about 2 hours, you might stop, put it aside, move to another task and you can come back with it after finish all your homework. Third, even though siting at a table to enhance your knowledge is importance, taking part in extra-curricular activities in your college is also significant.
Hard work is something learned through being challenged and if a child is not challenged in their early years of education they will typically slack off in their high school and college years when hard work becomes key to success. The intelligent person doesn't have to work as hard to succeed because they'll use their intelligence to make the right choices & see connections that lead them to successful conclusions. But they do still have to work. An intelligent but lazy person could end up being equal to a less intelligent but hard working person. In general: Hard work + Intelligence = Very good grades.
In this video, Freeman Hrabowski passionately reaches out for his aim to brighten up the course for the next generation of “young individuals” (TED, 2013). Hrabowski discussed the lack of motivation and shortcomings of current university students. He searched for means of boosting what the students’ wanted to learn that will lead to their success. Hrabowski also says that courage is simply how much a student wants what they do (TED, 2013). With reference to this, if students shy away from attaining greater dreams and goals and argue that they are not bright enough, then that is only an excuse.
Having a degree will get you far in life because in this world today you can’t get a good job without a degree or a high school diploma. With the life style I had growing up I wanted to make something out of myself, so whatever I have to do to become that important someone or to have something in life then that’s what I will do no matter how hard I have to work. I mean in life you will have many obstacles, but to overcome them then you have to strive to be the best. If that means doing a lot of hard work then you do that, Me being the type of person I am I refuse to let anything stop me from pursuing my dreams. As you sit back and take a look at the world today everything is mostly about technology so you know what that means you have to have more knowledge then just a high diploma.
For me, it means so much more. An education encompasses a full knowledge and understanding of one’s self, what inspires them, motivates them and empowers one to seek what brings them happiness and closer to one’s goals and an overall purpose in life. During my own experiences in high school, the pressure to achieve a college education seemed endless and often overwhelming as there were others in high school who seemed to have it to have it all figured out. These ideas, notions and pressures for youth to graduate and become successful as I reflect was somewhat of a grave injustice to the individual needing something more, something centralize or differently structured academically to at least bring about the best results of continuing education beyond the 12th grade and create substance. The pursuit of educational value impacts individuals differently as it a personal journey and sometimes a personal struggle but as I matured I realize that society places high importance on earning degrees and being successful without always providing the effective foundations to do so.
In order to be successful in college and in life, it is important for a student to have a few key characteristics that can be more valuable than a high IQ. Though both IQ and grit are crucial in ensuring success, grit has better predictability for success than IQ. Grit is based on an individual's passion for a particular long term goal, such as graduating from college, coupled with a powerful motivation to achieve their respective goal. Along with grit, it takes invincible courage, toughness and resolution in order to be successful. Whether it's the difficulty of adapting to college life or self-discovery, it's grit that gets you through some difficult situations.
