The three lessons that can guide every student to success

The happiness of college ending and graduation right? Think again.
Read below to find out more

First things first. This is not an article that will help you clear your exams, score more marks or instantly become a millionaire. Indeed ,if that were the case, trust me, I would be one too. But if you’re looking for something that can help you in the long run or contribute to your success as an individual, you have come to the right place, read on.

Did you know according to a report by Ministry of Human Resource Development by Government of India, around 28 per cent of our population is in the 0-14 age group. Also according to an article by world education news and reviews, about 1.5 million students are about to graduate annually only in engineering. These young people much like yourselves are bound to feel confused with all the extra information around them. Hence today, I am going to share with you three lessons that I wish I knew when I was a student or fresh graduate.

Only you decide your worth

First is, ‘Never let someone else’s judgment/belief/declaration become your identity or reality’ .  I believe all of us are familiar with the concept of average student. Most of us would fall under this category, especially me, but why is a student labeled as an average student in the first place? How does a student be intelligent, average and lacking in studies? Especially when our traditional education system doesn’t even teach us life skills. Albert Einstein was regarded as mentally retarded by his own parents because he didn’t speak until he was 4 years old. We all know how he is perceived today as one of the most intelligent men to have ever lived. This goes on to prove that labels exist only in our mind. So don’t let anyone tell you that you’re average. You are born and destined for greatness.

Marks do not represent your potential

Second lesson is, ‘Marks do not equal success.’ To put this into perspective, let me tell you about the top five and last five students of my class academically. Most of them have at one point or another, ended up working together. Chances are that they are in the same workplace or at some point have worked together. Have the intelligent students really lived up to their potential that their marks represented? or Have the academically weak students failed in their life? That is hardly the scenario. If I were to bluntly state the truth, success begins when your studies end. So never think that your marks dictate your future. They, at best represent your academic abilities. The world today sorely needs dreamers, poets, artists, motivators, activists and leaders. These qualities are seldom learnt in school but are taught by life. Richard Branson, the famous British founder of Virgin group dropped out at 16 years. Dhirubhai Ambani, widely credited with teaching Indians the basics of stock market trading, started working when he was just 17 and now the company he founded has a market capitalization of US$12 billion and net assets worth US$1800 billion.

Happiness does not come from material things

Third and final lesson of our article. ‘Build a happy life’. When I say a happy life, what comes to mind? Six figure salary, big house, good-looking and caring spouse and well-mannered children? Well, I have food for thought for you. I believe the basis of a happy life is a tripod. As with any tripod it has three legs, which are as below. The first and most often neglected leg is our relationship with our parents. As we pass through this journey called life, unintentionally we end up forgetting about our parents. But this is a major cause of regret amongst most people later. Take care of them while you can. Remember we don’t have them forever. Second is your relationship with your spouse and children. As with any other relationship, these relationships mature and we need to learn to mature with them. We need to take care of them at every stage. Lastly the leg which is ignored quite a lot but is most important are friends. When the other two legs seem shaky, this leg will help you tide on with your life if you maintain this relationship.

So there you go, bright and ready to take on the outside world. If the above connects with you and you would want some help with such topics, reach out to me on the below details for consultation. Till next time and the next topic, see you all.

Keep learning, keep improving
