In line with experiential statements, I would say that I have immersed in these secrets after years of academic exercise and diligence in the race of excellence.
In order for us to realize today that nothing is meant to be thought impossible, it is interesting to note that even the seemingly mundane intellectual body of inspiration, agrees with the knowledge gleaned from the Word of Truth *God’s Word*. In this write-up, I hereby bring Biblical and inspirational nuggets for academic excellence#Doubleportion:)
Aim for a great first class result– In my world, I am talking about writing a 5.0 result as the goal, whether you think you deserve it or not. For the records, you deserve it!
“I you can dream it, you can do it. “- Joseph Campbell
“Behold the people is one…and this they begin to do: and nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do”- Genesis 11:6
Remember, this is but a goal, backed by Faith definitely. It unfolds into the next tip.
Strategize with the weapon of planning: How do you intend to achieve this goal the Grace of God has given you the privilege to achieve.
“Any enterprise is built by wise planning; it becomes strong through the use of common sense, and profits wonderfully by keeping abreast of the facts.”- Proverbs 24:3-4
“It is not enough to know what to do; you must do what you know.”
In my close to four years of Tertiary Education, I have come to realize that the race of academic excellence might be a roller-coaster! This ushers in the next tip.
At every point in time, forget that you ever failed: This excellence exercise propels you for better achievements. Realize that you may need to introspect on whatever failure for a while, that is why it connotes a lesson. The idea remains, when you are done learning from the so-called failure, forget about it!
“Failure is an event and not a person.”- Zig Ziglar
“The just falleth seven times and riseth up again.”- Proverbs 24:16a (KJV).
It is inevitable that we all will evolve from the stage of ‘beginners’ enthusiasm’ #earlylevels to that of ‘advanced perseverance’ #finallevels, it then becomes sagacious to blend all the strategies and some potent lubricants for ease of completion of the race.
Use Praise: The most potent way of exercising Faith.
“But without faith it is impossible to please Him.”-Hebrews 11:6a
“I praise my way to my desired goals.”-Blessing Okoro
There are moments when you feel your Faith will elude you, when you tend to trust your feeble mind more than God. Just surrender to God in crazy praise. #Supernatural.
Speak Excellence: Move from the realm of stressing your mind with thoughts of excellence and begin to engage your creative abilities by speaking what your mind sees.
“We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak.”- 2 Corinthians 4:13
“I walk away from the realm of thinking and begin to exercise speaking.”- Blessing Okoro.
Time and space will not permit me to mention that, you must: be dedicated, make your goals Scripture-backed, engage Spiritual exercise #fast, pray, study the Word, and JUST STUDY WELL.
I applaud those that have transcended from the academic realm of excellence. My tip for you is: modify the words, and apply them to your career, business, financial, or any other excellence track you might be on.
