12 Habits A University Student Must Let Go Of To Be Successful.
Your habits as a University
Student will greatly affect your life and career. The sad thing is that many of us take this “course” for granted. Joshua Abuwa, the author of the book “I Choose To Be Great” made a statement, “In life, you don’t decide your future, you decide your habits and your habits decide your future”.
From the above quote, it can be deduced that the power to decide your future is in your doing and not in your saying. Your habits over-ride your confession.
The lion does not eat grass, not because he is proud. On the other hand, goats eat grass; not because they are humble. It is how things are meant to be. Everything in this world is a function of time and change.
As a University Student, certain high school habits should be off from your dictionary. In this article, I have outlined the 12 habits every University Student should let go of totally:
A UNIVERSITY STUDENT SHOULD LET GO OF THESE HABITS
1. TRYING TO BE PERFECT
You are no longer in high school, so, face realities. There is no such thing as a perfect person. It only happens in Hollywood. This is “real life hood”. Accept the fact that you are not perfect and try to be your best.
This is time to start getting things done. Do not wait for another time or another person. Make valuable use of your time because; Life is not a game. There is no extra time for you. Therefore, use your limited time to get an extra result.
3. DOING NOTHING
Do not expect anything if you are doing nothing. Don’t be idle in school. Look for what produces the best result for you and stick to it. As a matter of fact, do something new.
4. SHAME OF PAST EVENTS
Do not be too concerned about past events. If you do not forgive yourself of the past, then you cannot go forward. In addition, don’t major on the minor.
5. PLEASING EVERYONE
As a university student, don’t try to please everyone around. So long you do what is right, let them say what they like. The key to failure is trying to please everyone. As a matter of fact, pleasing everybody is pleasing nobody.
6. MAKE EXCUSES
Nobody will accept any excuse for your failure. Stop unnecessary excuses and start taking necessary actions.
7. BLAMING OTHERS
You are a university student, not a secondary school student. You should start taking full responsibility for your life.
8. NOT TAKING DECISION
A closed mouth is a closed destiny, just as a made-up mind is a come up destiny. Start taking your own decisions. Don’t let others decide for you.
9. YOUR RIGHT
Never give up on your right to be wrong.
10. RUNNING FROM CHALLENGES
Do not run away from challenges that you can fix. Face your fear.
11. LISTENING TO OPINIONS
Don’t let the opinion of others become your reality. To be after what they are saying is to become what they are saying. Have your own opinion.
12. LACK OF CONFIDENCE
If you do not believe in yourself, nobody will believe you. Believe in yourself and boost your confidence. This is the challenge of many university student s. As a matter of fact, many of them cannot address a group of 10 persons.
