A student’s success is very important for the nation and the world. Students are the future of the country. If a student cannot achieve success in his life, then a country must be undeveloped (Gallin, 2018). In this essay, the discussion is about three basic habits and their importance for student’s success and the next topic is about additional habits that a student needs and also the importance.
Three habits and their importance for student success
Every student needs success in their life. They do hard work just for this success. This means a positive outcome in works and education. According to Jill (2019), for students, only good marks and graduation is not defined as success, it is also defined as the holistic feeling of fulfillment. Behind the student’s success, his clear vision and mission, world view, various ideas, etc have a great impact. There are many habits that are very important to achieve success for students. These are setting goals, taking responsibility for their actions, great self-discipline, being obsessed with self-development, being risk-takers, etc. Among them all the three of them are described below:
If a person wants to be successful, he should know what he is doing in his life and what he will do in further life. For this, he should set his goal to achieve his dreams. Setting goals mean recognizing something that a student wants to fulfill and accomplish his future vision. There are three types of goals that a student must be followed. These are process, performance, and outcome goals. It is a must to confirm the desire for setting the goals. Ross (2017) stated that, for a student, goals must be short-term, mid-term, and long-term. Short-term goals help today to do better like everyday homework, class activities, quizzes etc.
Mid-term goals help to do the plan for one year or two years like board exams, final exams, etc. Lastly, the long-term goals begin with graduating and trying to fix and develop the career. A student must specify his goals then he should do his activities according to his fixed goals. If he fixes his goals for the future, he is ought to do his work from now. For example, if he wants to be a successful doctor in his country, he has to study more and more from now and he should know that for becoming a doctor, what a person should study and learn. He will study harder and will know about his weaknesses to do better in life. Besides, a student should be more attentive to his activities and do more hard work for better results. That means, setting the goal is very essential for every student’s success.
Great Self Discipline
A student can be successful in his life if he knows self-discipline. A disciplined person is very likely to everybody. Everyone admires a disciplined person. A person’s real guidance is he himself. If anyone gives him the pressure to learn discipline, he will never learn and know how to be disciplined. But if he has the interest to learn it, he can learn by himself (Roonie, 2018). There are many ways to learn self-discipline. The student has to know his strengths and weaknesses, he should stay positive, know time management, etc. According to Kite (2019), self-discipline means that a person controls his feelings, motivates himself and knows what is right and what is wrong. It is so helpful to every person, especially for students. For example, if a student learned self-discipline and knows that he has to wake up early in the morning, he will wake up early. That is called self-discipline. Another is if a student can have a chance to do cheating in an exam but he knows that cheating in an exam is wrong, so he will not cheat for getting good marks. He will study more rather than cheat. He would not do the wrong thing but he motivated himself to do the right thing. This is how a student can develop his future and achieve success.
Risk-taking is a very courageous thing for a student. It means a person is willing to do a dangerous or risky thing to improvise his goals and develop his future. Taking risks is a very brave thing and it improves our skills so much. Taking risks has not always been a positive result. No matter what the result comes, taking risks can develop our flexibility and faith in ourselves. Taking risks can reduce the fear of losing something. James (2019) stated that a risk-taker can do every task without any fear and he is not afraid of losing and get depressed easily. For a student, taking risks is very beneficial. A student becomes more confident and he can easily stand out from every situation. Safe planning always gives success very little. But a risky plan gets the most successful result. He learns how to be successful by taking risks. He can be the fearless student in the class. He can learn from the failure and gain faith in himself. He also learns from his mistakes and he will not do the same the next time. That is how a student can be successful in his life……………………
