In one or two ways, you have met helpers you inspired you to the top. Remember, the books you have read were written by humans.

There are persons you should not miss in life and destiny. These persons have been programmed to help you climb the ladder of life. Even in Jamb and other examinations, you need to meet persons that would help you succeed.

Meet as many persons as possible because you never can tell the persons who would help you achieve your goal.

One of the persons you should meet in life are mentors. Mentors are those who are already living your dream. They will help turn your dreams into reality.

Checkout other persons to meet in my famous article on Five persons you must meet to be successful.

2. Learn To Read Long Articles:

There is usually one complain you notice when you visit Nairaland and other forums. Students always complain about the length of articles and eventually demand summary. They get scared of long posts.

With every passing day, we hear things like, “this write-up is too long; please summarise it”.

Nothing gives depth of knowledge like detailed articles. Pay attention to helpful articles irrespective of the length.

Long articles don’t only help you improve on your reading habits, also, they help you build strong vocabularies and get use to the English language. Your reading skill goes a long way to affect your writing skill.

3. Learn To Read News:

These days, we have students who know the latest song of Rihana and Davido but do not know the president of Uganda. They would prefer to go to talent hunts instead of seminars that would add value to their life.

It is high time you started reading news to get valuable information. Read and listen to stuffs that will add value to your life. You can’t afford to be empty in this 21st century.

The 21st century is the current century of the Anno Domini era, in accordance with the Gregorian calendar. It began on January 1, 2001 and will end on December 31, 2100.

News updates would make it easy for you to answer current affairs questions in Scholarship examinations and job interviews. It is time to invest in your personality.

4. Limit Your Usage Of Social Networks:

Of course, it is good to use Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp, Instagram and Google Plus. However, these social platforms have killed many students both morally and academically.

Don’t be online for 24 hours if it doesn’t add value to your life. There are many other things you should do with your phone and precious time.

In addition, learn not to abuse people online. Good manners is the number one thing expected from every student. Boost your Ethics!

5. Find Your Passion:

If I may ask, what do you really want in life? It is time to find something to do with your life. The fact that you are a student doesn’t cover everything.

You must look form something that you can do very well. If  you think you don’t have talent, then learn skills. Nothing adds value to your life as a student like skills. It is your skill that would advertise you in school.

6. Invest In Your Passion:

In number 5 above, I explain the fact that you must discover your talent or learn a skill that you are passionate about. The next step you must take is to invest in your passion.

This may be the first time you are coming across an article teaching you to become a thinker. Yes, you must become a productive thinker. If you don’t develop your thinking faculty, you would have issues in your actual faculty.

Learn to “think everything through” as a student. You will eventually become what you think. Little wonder Joshua Abuwa said, “you look like your mind”.

If you don’t develop your thinking faculty, you would have issues in your actual faculty.

Before doing anything, think about the consequences. There are many benefits you will enjoy as a productive thinker.

8. Set Targets And Try To Achieve Them:

If you don’t have target, you may become the target. As a student, you should be able to set target for yourself. Think about what you want to achieve and how to achieve it.

Don’t continue to live by the opinion of others. Find out what you really want out to life and stick to it. If you want to become the best graduating student of your set, it is time to plan it.

9. Level Up Your Reading Life:

One of your biggest tasks as a student is reading. Never undermine the place of reading. Read your books to get good grades academically. Read like never before…

Even as you read to pass your examinations, try to read books that would help you learn more about life.

In all, be careful of the kind of books you read. Books go a long way to change your mindset and “lifeset”.

10. Buy Books:

So many students, especially females, put on weavons on empty brains. Instead of buying material things that don’t add value to your life, spend money to buy valuable materials. Buy books and continue to buy books. Humans start dying the day they stop to learn.

11. Accept Corrections:

So many students think that they are always right. This is a wrong mentally. No one knows it all. You need to take corrections and learn from others. With this, you will become more mature.

12. Have Principles:

It is principles that eventually makes you a principal. If you don’t have something that you stand for, you will surly fall for everything.

Don’t eat everything or drink anything that comes, don’t go everywhere and don’t do things because others are doing it. Look for what created the desired result in your life and simply stick to it.

13. Attend Seminars:

Foolishness is when you prefer clubs to seminars. Seminars are designed to spur you up for greatness. Ensure to attend a seminar at least once in 6 months.

14. Learn To Invest:

If you don’t invest in your tomorrow, it will have nothing to offer you. You should only expect profit in the future when you have invested in the future. Now, are you investing in your future or you are emptying your future?

Until you invest, you will not harvest  

15. Don’t Be A Womaniser:

As a womaniser, you will waste so many resources  . So, don’t be one.

16. Don’t Joke With Time:

Assets put money into your pocket while liabilities take it away. Now, time is the greatest asset that has been given to every student equally. What you don with time is what life will do to you.

Please! Don’t joke with time. Killing time is not murder but suicide  .

17. Use A Good Phone:

So many information would be hidden from you if you don’t use a good phone. As a student, do all you can to get a good Android or apple phone.

18. Learn To Use The Internet:

The Internet contain just all you need to be a great student. Learn to pull out resources online and use them for your own good. Life is not all about Instagram and Facebook.

When you have questions or come across what you don’t understand, simply Google it   .

19. Be Yourself:

When was the last time someone said to you, you are different? Don’t try to live your life like others.

We are all wonderfully and separately made. Simply be yourself and become your best. Life is not to compete but to complete.
