Is Someone You Love Going to College? Their Success Depends on Three Words

https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/20140815154134-10765298-is-someone-you-love-going-to-college-their-success-depends-on-three-words

 

A few bits:

 

If you get an “A+†on a term paper, it’s because you did the necessary work, not because you got lucky. If you’re late for class, it’s your fault, not because you got stuck waiting at a railroad crossing (you should have left earlier). People who adopt this belief are almost always more successful than those who make excuses.

 
Students must take the initiative to make things happen. Successful people live active rather than passive lives. To persist in college, you must deliberately make things happen. Those students who sit in their residence hall rooms waiting for something to happen tend to turn into professionals who sit in their offices wondering why other people are so much more successful.
