Another classic example of focus and hard work achieving success is the instance of Croatia in the FIFA WorldCup. Croatia as a country achieved independence from Yugoslavia in 1991. Since then, they have made several appearances at the World Cup race but their best bit was in 1998 when they lost to France in the semi-finals. After this, Croatia has rallied around and with focus and hard work, made it to the World cup Finals. Although they lost to France, their focus and hard work did not go unnoticed as the crowds cheered them on.
These are real-life instances where focus and hard work have really reaped rewards. Students must be motivated and should feel inspired to emulate these examples by consistent practice. Let us see how this can be done.
How can students use focus and hard work to make the impossible possible?
1. Aim high
Students must be always advised to aim high. Setting lofty goals for students is good as this charts the course of their life. If students aim high and have a high ambition, they will also have the vision to achieve it. This will keep them motivated to perform.
2. Plan their course of action
Every missile must have a trajectory. Similarly, every student must have a clear-cut path defined to reach his goal. For this, the student must analyze the goal, the foundation courses and the framework required to reach the goal. This involves detailed planning and extensive research with a timeline set to the target.
3. Collect course materials
After the target has been fixed and the course of action has been outlined, the student must collect all the course materials and information required to assimilate knowledge to attain the goal.
For instance, if the student wants to become a doctor, he has to prepare for the NEET exam. He/she has to start preparing well in advance honing up his knowledge of life sciences, especially human anatomy and physiology. This requires exhaustive preparation using worksheets right from class VIII onwards. All these worksheets are easily obtained from the Letspractise site and they offer a complete knowledge base for study.
4. Commence preparation and practice
Practice is the key ingredient of hard work and the sure ticket to success. Students must start preparing for the competitive exams by first building a strong foundation of the basics. This is possible only by continuous practice using different worksheets on the same chapter. The more questions students solve, the stronger their foundation becomes. Letspractise helps students to strengthen their base by offering them question banks pertaining to their syllabus- be it CBSE, ICSE or state board. Armed with this copious reservoir of worksheets and practice questions, students can meet any challenge head-on without hesitation.
Children need the right impetus to motivate them towards their goals. Inspire children by citing real-life examples, equip them with the right study materials from Letspractise and watch them make the impossible possible with focus and hard work.
