Mental Attitude Influence on Academic Success

Mental Attitude Influence on Academic Success

Success is the by-product of your attitude. Attitude does not only determine how far high you soar in Academics and career life but also in general state you live in. In short, it’s the bedrock upon which every success or failure is anchored on. For instance, when it rains all the birds fly for shelter on trees but the eagle avoids the rain by flying above the clouds. Problems are common to all but the attitude makes the difference. My attitude is my frame of mind. Therefore, i lose or succeed in any situation by virtue of how able or unable i feel psychologically towards the task at hand. Any mental cognition of defeat breeds the same and so is victory. If you want a man to behave in a particular way, simply deal with their minds and attitude. Schools must fill the buckets of children’s positivity to a level that no one punctures them dry.

In academics, attitude determines how you feel about your teachers, subjects and career as a whole. Attitude makes one; desire to confront a problem to solve it or run away in fright. No wonder, a bad attitude is like a flat tire, you won’t get anywhere where till you change it. Children must be psychologically empowered to see possibility in any task or challenge facing them. With this kind of mentality, they evoke positive energy and perform task with happiness and much creativity yielding greater results. Never bend your head. Hold it high neither should you allow yourself to be so desperate that you end up settling for far less than that you deserve because of fear. To overcome fear, deal with what you fear most and the rest will be history.

Therefore, having Positive mental attitude is a psychological state in which one sees the opportunity in every difficulty. One asks how something can be done rather than saying it can’t be done. The mind doesn’t whine about problems but looks around for solutions. Don’t complain about darkness; simply light a candle. Actually, the problem is not the problem; the problem is your attitude about the problem. In the world we live in, nature gives no man anything for free except by fighting for it. We must train our children to stand on the right side of every challenge. When they approach the traffic lights of promotion they should not reverse and go away, but wait shortly and the traffic lights will change from Red to Green indicating they can now proceed to their new grade or office. Where you are academically and career wise now could not be your Egypt, there is a better land of promise yonder; but through the wilderness you must cross to there. No gain without pain, no sweetness without sweat, no cheers without jeers; the greatest failure is not trying at all to better your state. Surely as Bill Gates once advised; to be born in a poor family is bad luck but to die the same, is your choice.
