*_* Reasons Why First Class Students In
School Never
Become
First Class People In Life (SHARE THIS)
Hardly do first class graduates become first
class
personality
While in University, we often spend too much
energy in acquiring good
grades that we forget to acquire good class
personality.
After concentrating all energy in acquiring the
first
class grades, we
transform into a society where first class grades
don’t matter much as
having a first class personality.
In school, its easy to read,memorize and pass
exams, but in real life,
there is no sure book of life to progress, no
memorizing, no exams, just
you and your inbuilt capability which require no
contest with anybody.
Those who eventually become big in life are
mostly
people who hardly
make good grades in school.
Anifowoshe Titilope had reported that, Prof.
Abletor
Sedofia from
University of Ghana has this to say to us:
“Academic excellence is overrated! Did I just say
that? Oh, yes, I said it. Being top of your class
does
not necessarily guarantee that you will
be at the top of life. You could graduate as the
best student in Finance but it doesn’t mean you
will make more money than everybody else.
The best graduating Law student does not
necessarily become the best
lawyer. The fact is life requires more than the
ability to understand a
concept, memorise it and reproduce it in an
exam.
School rewards
people for their memory. Life rewards people for
their imagination.
School rewards caution, life rewards daring.
School
hails those who live by the rules. Life exalts
those
who break the rules and set new ones.
So do I mean people shouldn’t study hard in
school? Oh, no, you should. But don’t sacrifice
every other thing on the altar of First Class.
Don’t limit yourself to the classroom. Do
something
practical. Take a
leadership position. Start a business and fail.
That’s a better
Entrepreneurship 101.Join or start an
association.
Contest an election
and lose. It will teach something Political
Science
101 will not teach
you. Attend a seminar.
Read books outside the scope of your course.
Go
on missions and win
a soul for eternal rewards… Do something you
believe in!
Think less of becoming an excellent student but
think more of
becoming an excellent person. Make the world
your
classroom!!! Today will favour u ⌚*_*
