5 Things Every Student Must Do To Be Successful by August21(m): 8:48am On Jul 05, 2019
Many students go through School never able to ace their courses not because they do not have the ability but because they do not apply certain principles that successful people have used over time.

It is every student’s desire to become successful and sure everyone can become successful only if certain principles are applied at the right time especially when we make such things a part of our daily life from very early stage in life.

1. Prioritize your study time

The first step to becoming a successful student is to develop a study time and keep to it. A lot of times people design study time schedules and end up not being disciplined enough to keep to what they have scheduled.

If you must excel, you must recognize that you cannot afford not to be organized.

MUST READ: HOW TO OVERCOME EXAM FEAR

Learning how to manage the amount of time you spend with friends, relatives and indeed family is important if you must do well as a student.

By all means always ensure that you never neglect the time you have allocated to your studies. Doing otherwise can lead to failure and regret.

2. Time Management

As a student, you must not be like other people who believe in “African time.”

When a class is meant for 8am, be there by 8am.

You must also try to keep to your time-table which dictates what you are to read and study on a daily basis.

The truth is, successful people learn to use their time productively. This may mean that you need to wake up earlier than your colleagues or sleep later than everyone else.

Determine what works best for you. That way you are able to better stick with your plans.

3. Do not spend much time on social media.

People who spend too much time focusing on social media may not be able to fully concentrate on their studies.

Social media has its benefits but the negatives far outweighs the positives.

Spending too much time on social media may lead to social media addiction.

You may need to come to terms with the fact that at this time in your life, your priority should be on how you can ace your courses and not on social media.

4. Choose your friends wisely

“Show me your friends and I will tell you who you are. How many times have you heard this saying? It is as true as the holy book.

The right friends can have a life changing impact on any individual and if we flip the coin, the wrong friends can also have a life-changing (negative of course) impact on any individual.

It is at this particular stage in life that you must choose your friends with a lot of caution and care.

Look out for people who are better than you. Yea. It always works. Their habits can help in motivating you to also study whenever you are around them.

5. HAVE A GOAL OR TARGET

What are your goals? Do they motivate you enough to swallow your everyday distractions?

Are you that student who believes, “what will be, will be”.

I kept this for last because I want this to serve as a wake-up call.

If you don’t have a goal, do not expect your body to push you to success on its own.

To be successful, you must have a goal, then develop a strategy and tactics for achieving that goal.

Only by doing these can you be successful.

Seconded. I always feel like having sex when I read too much . I'll just play with my teddy bear or pillow ,kiss and cuddle them. It makes me sharper and less burdened.
I'm sure I can be like Einstein if I have a pretty lady by my side whenever I want to study. I've always fantasized about sex while reading, like I'm on a chair and she rides me, while I enjoy that sensual pleasure and mental development concurrently.

Yeah. There's an adrenaline and testosterone rush when you know the answers to all the questions and you are a contender for the best student in your class and while you spent time answering some questions extraordinarily ,your invigilator announces 30 minutes more.

It happened to me ,for the last 20 minutes I was writing with unimaginable speed and I didn't know when I started rubbing my stuff only to discover semen had escaped. It was very embarrassing. Still a virgin though.

After studying each course, try to look it up on Google. Reading what you've read before helps you remember better and even gives you more information. My one cent .
