Our education system has grown hundred folds from as we knew it. It is now synonymous with the word competition. Students are compelled to be a part of this cut throat, strategy- based system, in order to find a significant position in the pool of achievers. They are those unwilling, innocent targets who are getting trapped, in between, to win this never-ending race for making it big.
Each and every parent is becoming very cautious of his child’s movement and is busy making his place evident and visible in front of others. This finally leads to solutions that are suggestive of imbibing more qualities in students other than high standards of education. Following are the five qualities that need to be imbibed in students from the beginning:
Confidence in students is highly required and admired by all. Children have to step out of innocence and embrace a confident attitude early in life. This quality helps them move in achieving goals that are important for their personal growth. Confidence is believed to grow with time and thus confident students are gaining more appreciation in the society.
Being assertive is different than being rude. It is often mistaken that if we are assertive in our behavior then we are in some way being aggressive. Assertiveness does not accompany a guarantee of getting what we desire but it does bring a satisfaction of trying our level best for what we wished. It is like a battle within our own self and it is up to us to choose whether we wish to fight the battle or not.
Students at a tender age feel reluctant to ask for help as they feel that they will be presumed to be not competitive enough if they ask more questions about their doubts and this often leads them with limited or confused knowledge. They are compelled through themselves to say a yes as they believe that this will help them gain a good name in everyone’s book. These are signs when they need to adapt and learn the art of assertiveness which is essential for their growth and satisfaction rather than anyone else’s.
Endorsing a positive attitude will help students look into solutions rather than problems. It is believed that habits die hard and keeping a positive attitude is a habit that is beneficial for one’s health. A positive thinking gives rise to a positive growth and this surely helps the child to grow in a much healthier manner. Positive attitude as a child helps one into blooming as a positive adult which further is very rare to find.
Life is teaching many qualities that were believed to be learnt at later stages and with experience. In modern times students are gaining an effective position as a team player and are being able to stand for their team and take charge of each other. Team player is also an attitude that helps an individual grow into an effective leader and thus paves the path of a successful life.
Yes, you heard it right decision making is no longer only the charge of elders but even students today are being forced to move and be liable for their own decision. This art teaches them the quality of becoming more reliable and answerable for their actions. Another quality that helps the child grows into a responsible adult.
