Act Like It All Counts-Student Success Tip for Great Results

Here’s a student success tip to help you get great results.


When you were a kid playing games with friends, maybe you had an agreement that there would be times when your kid sister got in the way when it was your turn to go, and you got another chance at it.

In the world of children, those are called “do overs.”

In the world of adults, we don’t usually get those “do overs.”

We’re held accountable now and suddenly, it seems as though everything counts.

It does.  Everything you do adds up to the results you get.

If you stay up later on video games, there will be a result.  If you take time to study the right way at the right times, like I talk about in my book “College Success Your Way” you get another result.

We all need to face the fact sooner or later that it’s a cause and effect world.

We reap what we sow.

Some people call this the “Law of the Harvest.” I like that.  When you plant tomatoes, you can’t expect that peas will pop up.

Want to know the truth? Most people never fully get this.  And if they do, they behave as though they don’t. People tend to believe that good things that happen to them come as a result of hard work and bad things that happen are bad luck.

Take a closer look.  It’s a cause and effect world. Ask yourself, “will this action bring the result I want?” Then, open your eyes, heart and mind and make the choice that’s best for you.
