Learning is the main key to achieve or reach your goal. The knowledge that
you learn can help on your personal development. Every individual wants to
be a successful person in the future that is why people do everything just to
achieve their dreams. In order to achieve your dreams like being a great
businessperson in the future, a professional engineer, etc., you need to learn
all the things that you need for your dream. Since the day you were born, you
start to learn different things just by seeing, hearing, and listening things.
When children are already in the right age, their parents
send them to school to expand their knowledge. Entering
school is the first step for a person who wants to achieve his
or her dreams. If you have useful knowledge in your
brain, you definitely won’t have a hard time reaching your
goals or dreams. If you are very lazy to go to school, you
won’t be able to reach your dream because you’ll be lacking
knowledge or intelligence. All you need to do is motivate
yourself to focus on your studies.
This is the first thing that you need to do, you probably know what will happen
if you don’t study hard. In school, you will know how knowledgeable or bright
you are by your grades. If you receive low grades, you still need to focus on
your studies. For example, you are in college and you take an engineering
course. If you don’t focus on things that provide knowledge about
engineering, you won’t be able to expand your knowledge on the course that
you take. Most students lose interest on studying because of their vices like
playing online games and other things that makes them temporarily happy. For
example you love playing online games, make sure that you will still go to
school and just play online games when you have free time. Always remember
to separate studies and vices.
Yes! Reading books is one of the best ways to gain knowledge aside from
listening to your teachers. Every school provides every student books that they
can take home. In that way, students can still review or study the topic that
their teacher discussed. In order to absorb every word, sentence, or
information that you read, you need to expand your vocabulary. There are
times when you won’t fully understand a sentence if you don’t know the
meaning of a certain word. The best thing you need to do when you are
reading books is to have a dictionary with you. The reason why some students
stop reading books is because they think books are hard to understand. If you
gain lots of knowledge from reading books, you will be able to answer the
tests that will come. For example, you already read your book about science
that your teacher gave you, when the time comes that your teacher asks
questions about the topic that hasn’t been discussed, you’ll definitely be able
to answer the question because you already read the book.
Do your homework
Even if you are a fast learner, you still need to do your homework. By doing
your homework, you can test the capacity of your brain on how long it can
hold every information that you gain. There are some students who don’t
remember other things or information that they gain when they shift their
focus on other things. For example, your teacher has discussed a lesson about
science. Then after science, she discussed lessons about math. It is common
for some students in this scenario to forget lessons in science because they
have shifted their focus on math. All you need to do is improve your
memorisation skills. In that way you can still remember other information that
will come. You will also get low grades on a certain subject if you don’t do your
homework. You will definitely be motivated to focus on your studies because
you will see your improvements.
Listen to your teacher
When you are in the middle of the discussion, you need to listen to your
teacher. Teachers can teach everything you need to learn. If you don’t listen on
what your teacher is discussing, you won’t learn anything. There are people
who learn easily through listening or reading. Your teacher will possibly ask
you questions if he or she noticed that you are not listening or paying
attention. You will also be able to work with your homework easily if you listen
to your teacher. Also, don’t be afraid to ask questions to your teacher if you
don’t understand a certain thing. Your teacher will be to answer your question.
If you are not contented on what you learn on the discussion of your teacher,
you might want to explore or learn other things in order to expand your
knowledge. As I’ve said above, you should start reading books. Reading books
can help you to expand your vocabulary and you reading skills. If you are in
college, it’s ideal to focus on books about the course that you are taking. You
can also try reading other books that is related on your course. The best place
for reading different kinds of books is the library. You can ask the librarian
about the books that you like; in that way you, won’t spend so much time
searching for books.
Ask your classmates
In school, you won’t enjoy your day if you don’t talk to your classmates.
Studying alone is sometimes boring. You can ask your friends or classmates to
do brainstorming; in that way, you and your classmates can share knowledge.
You definitely have one classmates that you want to surpass (it will definitely
keep you motivated). If your rival got a higher grade than you, don’t be
discouraged and just study hard to outshine him or her. Having a goal in school
will definitely give you motivation.
