This week, Mr. IU told us the story about a young man who wanted to be successful. The man claimed that he wanted it very badly but he did not know what it meant to yearn for something until the moment he realised he was drowning and struggling to survive. Mr. IU’s speech reminded us that we are not fully engaged with our learning because we did not want to be successful badly enough. We want it but we did not want it badly to the extent that we would be willing to give up our leisure activities or make some sacrifices. It has been more than a month since the beginning of the school term and we are that much closer to success or failure. If you want to be successful badly just as much as you want to breathe, you will be successful.
