The success of a college for most young students is not as difficult as learning adult responsibility. According to Carl Pickard, a psychologist and adolescent specialist, it is more challenging to leave adolescence and become an adult. If you take the responsibility to show the class at regular intervals, turn to papers and work in time, and sacrifice time spent with friends, with more study time, you have won half the battle for college success. Responsibility for meeting college demands (ability to respond and step on the plate) is one of the keys to university performance.
Has already used the advanced thinking skills required for college success. Use these skills when solving life problems and overcoming obstacles. The failure of the college is not because it is not smart enough. There are many kinds of intelligence, and the experience of working with hundreds of students shows that virtually every student is smart or otherwise. For more information on other types of intelligence beyond IQ, read Howard Gardner (multiple intelligence), Robert Sternberg (successful intelligence), and Daniel Goleman (emotional and social intelligence) theories.
In addition to self-responsibility, three additional factors are needed to be successful in the college:
1. Learning to learn and learning skills – Learn how to learn effectively and learn best. Most colleges offer at least one college success course that can teach these skills. These courses should also be taught to high school students, but unfortunately some secondary schools provide them. A good college success course will teach you how to learn and learn, read comprehension, best learning styles and types of intelligences, how to set and achieve goals, time management, discovery of your talents and strengths, career recognition, writing skills, note-taking, problem solving, and so on.
2nd Work ethics – Good learning and work habits lead to college and workforce success. Good learning skills will only be effective if you apply them. If you do not use them, they will be worthless
3. Motivation – Without motivation, you will not consistently use good learning skills, workplace habits and intelligence and potential. There are two kinds of motivation: carrot (pleasure) and stick (pain). If you use them together, you will have a strong motivational combination. Keep your long-term goals in pursuing university education in your mind. For example, suppose you would become a teacher in secondary education. Imagine and imagine yourself as a teacher who positively influences your students. Enjoy positive emotions when you see yourself as a great teacher. This is a carrot and a reminder of one of the benefits (enjoyment) of experiencing the goal. Remind yourself of the bot (pain) or its consequences if you have not reached the level of secondary education. You may be deprived of becoming a teacher. Reminding yourself of the benefits and consequences, you can help to stay motivated and lasting. Also break the long-term goals into small steps. Every step you make will give you positive feedback and will increase your motivation to achieve long-term goals.
