“With re­al­iza­tion of one’s own po­ten­tial & self con­fi­dence in one’s abil­ity, one can build a bet­ter world.” ~Dalai Lama A new aca­demic ses­sion, a new class room; for some, it may be a new school and new friends. Here are a few ways to present our­selves smartly and con­fi­dently. Be up-to-date: Try your level best to keep your­self in­formed about the cur­rent af­fairs. A piece of new in­for­ma­tion can in­vite the at­ten­tion of teach­ers and other class mates. Avoid fear and shy­ness: Start talk­ing with oth­ers freely. You may start by greet­ing them; grad­u­ally friend­ship will de­velop. Un­nec­es­sary fear and shy­ness will limit our friend­ship. View good­ness in ev­ery­one: The world/ school is not made out of good peo­ple alone but there is some good­ness in ev­ery­one. In­stead of find­ing fault with oth­ers, bet­ter to see the pos­i­tive side of ev­ery sit­u­a­tion. Hard work pays: Hard work helps you to present your­selves bet­ter than oth­ers in class. Don’t blame oth­ers: If you can’t do well on a par­tic­u­lar day or in a par­tic­u­lar sub­ject, have the courage to own up. Never at­tempt to blame oth­ers for our fail­ures. Ask a ques­tion/ an­swer a ques­tion: If you can de­cide to ask at least one ques­tion or an­swer one ques­tion in ev­ery pe­riod it will make you im­pres­sive. Teacher- a Friend too? If a teacher re­al­izes that you are a se­ri­ous stu­dent, you will be re­warded with de­served at­ten­tion. Why don’t you ask a doubt/ a clar­i­fi­ca­tion to the teacher out­side the class room? Not to re­peat mis­takes: Re­mem­ber the maxim ‘ev­ery­one makes mis­takes; only the fool­ish re­peats’. “A cor­rec­tion in the note book by a teacher is not a mat­ter of shame but be care­ful to learn the cor­rect way. Ex­tra-cur­ric­u­lar ac­tiv­i­ties: Take in­ter­est in some­thing other than stud­ies like mu­sic, paint­ing, sports, de­bate, poem/ story writ­ing, ac­tiv­ity of na­ture/sci­ence clubs etc. Apart from en­ter­tain­ment this may add grades to your fi­nal rank­ings.
