If you are a student, this is the “secret” I wish to share. I found it very useful to focus on the big picture. Every day I did my subconscious programming (though there were days that I missed, but those were very few) – I shall graduate with distinction. When I started out, I had no idea how I would attain it. But I carried on with only 1 driver – my faith.
Eventually I did graduate with distinction. How did that happen? When I reflect I realise how things fell into place. I made good friends – who were willing to share resources and learn together. A lot of collaborative learning occurred, inside and outside class. I was able to find good resources to get ideas and write my papers – not everyone had been successful with that. I was able to focus and my mind was able to articulate my thoughts into words.
Of course, I wasn’t the best student. Of course, I could have done better – I attained 6 distinctions out of 9 subjects (got distinction for overall aggregate). Of course, I could have become the top student or win the best dissertation title, or even got a nomination. But I didn’t – why? Cos my only interest was to graduate with distinction... and everything fell in place to match exactly what I wanted.
My only advice to you if you are a student – be very very sure of what you want – cos that is exactly what you will get. Somehow, someway. But of course, you have to put in effort. Nothing works without effort. I did my part, I spent many, many hours reading, studying, writing, reflecting...etc. Besides my supportive family, my strongest pillar was my Divine Master, His Divine Grace.
