The Ultimate Formula for Success


Trembling, you approach the dark cave known as “High School”.  Their eyes stare down at you.  Eyes belonging to those creatures you’ve heard of called upperclassmen.  Some of whom seem ten times your size.  You’ve heard the stories either from older friends or even siblings.  These scary stories will become reality but only if you choose to believe them.

Entering high school as a freshman can be stressful.  However, knowing some helpful strategies will make your first year at high school more enjoyable.  One strategy that can be helpful is called “The Ultimate Success Formula”.  There are 5 steps to the formula:

  1. Know what you want - For example, you know that you want to complete your freshman year successfully.

  2. Know why you want it—You want to get through your freshman year so that you are successful in the future

  3.  Take massive action—Don’t let anything get in your way of having a fun and successful year

  4.  Check how you’re doing—Report cards will come to inform you of your academic status

  5.  Make Changes – If you’re not satisfied with your grades, then change them.  Study with your friends and get extra help from teachers. If you’re not happy with your social life, then make new friends.  Joining extra-curricular activities allows you to meet new people from different grades.

 I wish I had known this helpful strategy when I entered high school.  Instead I listened to what others said which affected my self-confidence as well as my grades.

Keep this strategy in mind when entering high school or in anything else you’re planning to accomplish.  By knowing what you want and how to achieve it, you will have a great freshman year.  Before you know it, you will be entering high school again...this time as a sophomore.
