Do you think are you are a good student?
Do you want to be a good student?
Then ensure that you are reading this article and make sure that all the qualities mentioned in them are inculcated in you…
1.Reduce the anger levels
As rightly said anger makes people blind. We do not understand the moves that we take and we become unconscious about the words we speak. So, try not to get angry. I know it sounds difficult, but as a student, you need to have enough control over your anger which can be attained through meditating. Meditation not only reduces your anger level but also improves your concentration levels towards your studies and helps you in attaining inner peace.
Cooldown!! I can feel your vibes. I know it’s easy to suggest but meditation is not a cup of tea for many out there. If you are one amongst them not to worry, you are not alone in this journey.
Let me share my personal experience with meditation which might help you. Initially, I was unable to focus on my thoughts and my thoughts kept on disturbing me. After a certain stage, I reached a position wherein I felt so sleepy while meditating, I was so disappointed with that and thought of giving up but at the same time, I got to know that it’s also apart of meditation and termed as yoga Nidra. Eventually, it moved into a stage where I can meditate for about 5 mins without any distractions. I am sure that you will start experiencing some wonders happening with you.
2. Control your greed
“As long as greed is stronger than compassion, there will always be suffering.”-Rusty Eric.
A greedy person can ruin/ destroy, anyone/anything to fulfill their own selfish need.
This quality not only harms the people around you but also destroys you, for the time being, there is a sufficiency in the world for a man’s needs not for a man’s greed. A greedy person can never feel satisfied with what they have and always keeps plotting about other belongings in the quest of getting them. Being a student we always need to focus on how to utilize our time productively.
So, being greedy will lead to the wastage of a valuable resource, and that’s our time.
So, stop being greedy and try to build things on your own merit which will lead to ultimate success.
3. Don’t be a glutton
“He who is not contented with what he has, would not be contented with what he would like to have.”
If you are unable to control your desire of having more and more delicious food then you’re brain will always keep roaming around the Chachaji’s hotel and never be able to focus on the studies. Some of them cannot think about anything apart from the delicious food and even they neglect their health. So, stop being a glutton and start focusing on the knowledge that you gain by studying.
4.Stay away from sexual attractions.
Sexual addiction is no less than an illness for all teenagers these days.
In this world of globalization, everything is available at our fingertips. A simple internet connection can give you access to any kind of content we need.
“Your decision to kill your addiction will become a reality only if you believe and reinforce the fact that you have the capacity to do it.”
If a person involves themselves in thinking more of a sexual context they will eventually become restless and have the highest probability of choosing any wrong path in order to fulfill their wish. All their thoughts keep revolving around the sex which they will not be able to concentrate on studies. So, as much as possible distance yourself from sexual thoughts.
5. Wasting time around random fun.
Now, don’t get annoyed after looking at this statement. That doesn’t mean that you should not hang out with your friends. This means that you need to have your priorities and take action accordingly.
Seriousness is the highest quality gift and virtue in a student to achieve fame and success in their career. So, a student always needs to take care that he is not wasting time in umb activities and momentary pleasures, and needs to have the stability to attain whatever they wish to have in life.
