Being Top Of Your Class Doesn't Gurantee Sucess In Life

This is more for we students, it will pay you a lot to take note of these wise words.In the words of Prof. Able for Sedofia from University of Ghana;
● Academic excellence is overrated! I said it. Being top of your class does not necessarily guarantee that you will be at the top of life. You could graduate as the best student in Finance but*
● It doesn’t mean you will make more money than everybody else. The best graduating Law student does not necessarily become the best lawyer. The fact is life requires more than the ability to understand a concept, memorise it and reproduce it in an exam. School rewards people for their memory. Life rewards people for their imagination.
● School rewards caution, life rewards daring. School hails those who live by the rules. Life exalts those who break the rulesand set new ones. So do I mean people shouldn’t study hard in school? Oh, no, you should, But don’t sacrifice every other thing on the altar of First Class.
● Don’t limit yourself to the classroom. Do something practical. Take a leadership position. Start a business and fail. That’s a better Entrepreneurship 101.¤Join or start a club. Contest an election and lose. It will teach you something Political Science 101will not teach you. Attend a seminar. Read books outside the scope of your course. Go onmissions and win a soul for eternal rewards… Do something you believe in! Think less of becoming an excellent student but think more of becoming an excellent person. Make the world your classroom.And remember, don’t just feel special, BE SPECIAL.
