What are the factors of being successful?
Off the top of my head, I’d say that you need to be really motivated to be successful. Sometimes life will throw you a curveball, so you have to stick to your plan no matter what. People who don’t have a lot of motivation might just give up when things get difficult. Other than that, I think you should also be confident and good at communicating. People who have a knack for communication can convince others easily. In that way, they’re more likely to be successful.
Do you think a university degree would guarantee one’s success in a career?
Actually, I don’t think having a university degree is a guarantee for success in a career. Nowadays, people rise through the ranks in lots of different ways. Having a university degree definitely gives you a boost, but it’s not the only way to be successful. Many people never get a university degree, but they are still great at what they do and have an awesome career. As we all know, lots of famous entrepreneurs, like Steve Jobs and Bill Gates, were even dropouts from college.
How would you define a student’s success?
Well, that’s a hard question to answer since every student is so different. But I suppose that in general, a student is successful when they’ve become proficient in a subject and when they can extend their skills in that class to real life. It’s one thing to know how to read a book; it’s another to use thinking skills to get a job. I think that’s how you can define success when it comes to students.
How can you be successful at work? How can you be successful at your company?
It seems to me that in order to be successful at work, you need to be driven and responsible. You also have to have a clear goal and work hard to achieve it. As far as I know, most bosses like employees who show those qualities, so they are more likely to be promoted faster than others. Besides, you should also be passionate about your job. After all, if you love what you do, you’ll never have to work a day in your life. Caring about your job can help you be better at it.
How should successful students be rewarded?
I suppose successful students should be rewarded with praise from their teachers. It’s always helpful to receive constructive criticism, but it’s even better when your teachers are building you up and making you feel good about your work. I also think awards are a good way of motivating students and rewarding them when they do well. That’s a way of recognizing their efforts so they can be more confident and have more passion to study hard.
