‘‘Successful and unsuccessful students do not have much difference in their abilities. They differ in their desire to reach their academic potentiality.’’
Do you have the feeling that you have not reached your full academic capabilities yet? Are you facing concentration problems while studying? Do you often regret about missing important points while answering a question on your homework or exam? If not, it is good.
But, there are students who are worried about their academic potentiality and think academics to be a burden in their life. But it is important to remember that you have been given this life because you have the potentiality to deal with your academics the perfect way. Once you start believing in your capabilities, it will give you the courage to deal with the hurdles of academics.
During my school days, I remember that after several failed attempts, I lost all hopes in mathematics. I had thought that it is due to my low intellectual development that I am unable to tackle mathematics the perfect way. When my class teacher came to know about this, she provided me with some steps to follow while homework-solving to bring change in my habits. Even when I am pursuing majors from a reputed college now, I still make use of those strategies to maintain my academic potentiality.
Regular assignments and homework carry more importance than one can ever imagine. Students who do their homework regularly develop the potentiality to perform in a better way in everything. From being punctual to becoming more innovative, the benefits that homework provides are unlimited. Thus, students who wish to boost their academic potentiality need to take their homework seriously.
Recently I came across a young cousin who was asked to boost her academic performance as she was suffering from low academic grades for quite a long period of time. Considering the fact that there are many students like her who lack poor potentiality, I thought of sharing those valuable strategies which I imply during homework solving to ensure that I maintain my academic potentiality.
