The single biggest mistake students make during study time… and why it’s so important you don’t fall into this trap too. The 7 key strategies used by top-performing HSC students to beat other students and achieve top ATAR scores.
Assuming that she’d failed or, at the most, performed badly, I inquired as gently as I could about the cause of her gloominess. Sounds familiar?Each year thousands of students across India take their own lives because they fail to make the grade they expect, or strive for. Young girls starve themselves to stay slim; young boys pop steroid pills to build a Schwarzenegger-like physique. Everyone is either pushing or being pushed to do better than someone else who they may not even know!This all-pervasive emphasis on winning at any cost results in tremendous anxiety. Because, no one has the time or inclination to stop and think what really constitutes life.We only produce outcomesAll performance measures are relative. Wouldn’t it be better for us to think in terms of outcomes rather than winning and losing, failing or succeeding?

What we are saying is that being focussed on doing tasks well, and enjoying it while you do it, is a much better way of living than trying to compete and succeed.
When you adopt this realistic approach, you will find that your anxiety to win will transform into healthy concern for the good of all.
According to psychologists, concern is good stress; it motivates individuals to do tasks well. Anxiety, on the other hand, is bad stress and harmful to the process of accomplishing any task. Striving individuals are always thinking that they will be happy, successful, fulfilled when they get this job, that house, and so on. For them, success is not about some outcome in the future, but how richly they live in the present, or how well they do what they are supposed to do.It is, therefore, important to realise that success is not something you get from a job. Success is something you bring to your job, or career.No one ever losesIt is worthwhile to remember that benchmarks are only guidelines. Simply because our actions do not manifest into what we, or others, have benchmarked as success, it does not mean we have failed.
