Your success or failure as a student is directly proportional to your mindset. Its ok not to start off with a positive mindset for whatever reason. However, it is dangerous to continue without it. Hence the need to change your mindset and maintain a positive one over time.
This explains why to some students, the thought of lectures brings joy, but to others it brings pain.
Similarly, researching on tasks and assignments is fun and interesting to some students, but nothing more than a waste of time to others.
The question now is ” how do I develop the right mindset when everything around seems to be frustrating?
Here a a few things that will help in changing your mindset;
- Refuse to focus on what could go wrong
In every activity two outcomes are expected, either positive or negative. Due to what we say and hear around us its very easy to focus on the negative outcomes. This unconsciously affects the way we think.
Some people say things like, “Las las, nobody fit score ‘A’ for this course”. This mindset will go a long way to limit such a student during preparations.
An imaginary boundary has been created thus limiting his/her ability to aim for an ‘A’.
- Make excellence your boundary
When working on any task, aim for excellence at all cost. You may or may not accomplish it on your first attempts. However over time, you’ll condition your mind to be satisfied with the best and settle for nothing less.
- Surround yourself with positive minds
Your environment goes a long way to shape the way you think, act and speak. Surrounding yourself with positive minds will encourage you to constantly better your best and will keep you going even when you feel like giving up.
