Have a good attitude toward teachers

Attitude is the opinions or feelings that you show by your behavior. And when it comes to academics, one’s attitude really matters since it influences and determines a student’s concentration in class, self esteem, the level of success to mention but a few. A positive attitude always remains vital in achieving success, particularly in academics.

School would be so much more fun if lessons were interesting. Most times, students get bored during class because of dull lessons. On most occasions, students miss a lot because they didn’t understand the concept but I can assure it’s not the teachers fault. Most times, students get bored during class simply because of their attitudes.

Before the lesson, set your mind well and be determined to get all you can out the lesson. Concentration comes naturally to some people although the ability to concentrate (for those who find it hard) can be acquired.

Have a good attitude toward the teacher. We achieve depending on what we believe. If you believe big then expect big achievements in return. If you believe in your teacher, you might just enjoy the lesson and improve your grades.

Do a quick survey of the topic you are covering next so that you have a general idea when the lessons start. This will help you stay focused and easily help you understand more.

During the lesson, force yourself to pay full attention and take notes. Ensure nothing else takes your attention away; ignore all the noise or anyone trying to steal your focus. I know hot gossip comes from your friends but you have plenty of time to engage in that once classes are over.

After the lesson, re-read the notes you took down. Keep small summaries that you can read over during lunch break or any free time. Do not depend on your teacher’s notes alone – if you have a library, make good use of it.

Reflect on the lesson and discuss the main points with a friend because teamwork makes a great difference. Ask questions where you do don’t understand - never leave a question mark in your head.

But always put in mind that your attitude towards yourself and teacher greatly determines your concentration in class thus eventually influencing your academic success. More so remember

That it all goes with yourself esteem, if you think you are a failure then you will be one and the reverse is literally true.
