Tips to our students for a productive and successful future:

  • Be clear about your goals! Think about where you want to be in 5, 10 or 15 years and plan accordingly.
  • Also create daily goals. They can be anything from wanting to read a book you recently acquired, spending your allowance on charity or learning 5 new difficult words.
  • Proper routines are vital to live a structured and productive life. Allow yourself enough sleep at night in order to face every day with a fresh mind. Remember, active lifestyle and healthy diet is also crucial for that boosting energy!
  • Value your time. Imaging yourself at 70, do you have fun memories created with friends and family? Or will you look back on time wasted on TV and useless activities only?
  • Be bold and original, nothing is impossible if you work hard enough. Successful people are not afraid of hard work and sacrifice.
  • Be your own support! People may not always understand your plans and dreams, try to be your own mentor.
  • Don’t think you can ever know enough. Knowledge is power! And never be afraid of change, learn to reflect upon situations and yourself in order to grow and gain wisdom.
  • Remember, we think of success differently. To some it may be a good job, lots of money and status. But ultimately, life is about more than numbers, beauty and belongings. Being a nice person and a good citizen is more important. Success should be measured in dedication, kindness and happiness!
