Setting a goal for engineering grade
Topic: Success Secrets
July 3, 2013
I have question that my 3 semmester for my engineering is going to start.
So we don't have G.p.a system , we have percentage system .
I AIM TO SCORE 89 PERCENT.
i had made an action plan.
The question is that when i try to follow that i feel a doubt that if it would work or not
Maybe there is some other good method to achieve it quickly
This thought tense me and demotivates me to follow my action plan
What should i do?

It is good that you have a goal of the score you want to achieve. Write down that goal and post it where you can see it, as a reminder.
Your action plan should consist of the amount of time you will spend studying each day, a way to verify what you have learned, and methods to study for exams. Note that you also should set aside time for relaxation, so that you don't get stale.
You can monitor your progress with results from homework and tests. Giving yourself congratulations on doing well helps to motivate your further.
If you have some set-backs, such that it may not be possible to achieve your goal, make some adjustments, so that you will continue on your mission to achieve good grades.
Do not get tense during this process. Think of it as similar to an engineering project where you seek certain results.
Best wishes on doing well in your classes. I am sure you will.
Wants to write motivational books
Topic: Success Secrets
July 1, 2013
Well,sir great jobs you have been doing seems unbetreating especially to someone like me,i love motivational books and i can't tell how it makes people succeed.But i have a question,i want to become an author writing motivational books,please sir, motivate me how would i start?
Ananwude - Nigeria
The best way to become an author writing motivational books is to get write down some inspiring stories of people who have been motivated to improve their lives or to help others.
Look in your own community and ask people questions like: "How did you get started in your business or job?" or "Have you ever overcome some difficulty and what motivated you to do that?" You can think of other questions that will fit.
You can tell then the reason for asking is for a book you are writing.
Also, write down your own thoughts on how you have been motivated or inspired to advance yourself.
Look at our lessons in Succeed in Writing to help you.
Best wishes for success in your book.

How do I build strong confidence?
January 3, 2013
How do are build strong confidence in myself or in whatsoever am doing?
Otis - Ghana
First of all, pick an area in which you want to be confident. Is it in speaking to a group? Is it doing a dangerous task? Is it winning a game?
You have to start with a specific area or goal. Then, starting with easy tasks, complete them and praise yourself for the accomplishment. Soon you will become so confident in that area, that you can build your confidence in another area.
One area of importance is to have confidence in being able to overcome the difficult. That works in all areas.
I hope these ideas help you become confident in things you do.
Plans about my life
November 13, 2012
Hello Sir, I have my email back and some time and some money to burn
I was thinking about some experiments with aeronautical engineering and astronautical engineering most of airflow(camber) and electricity/
electrolysis , light and fuels even biology, I was thinking about maby going back to school its about 15 mins away college/university
having a hard time to make my mind up any ideas on a spot to start and what course would you recommend to someone that is all over the place and is in need of a direction.Thanks for the help and if you need any help with anything ever ask I will try my best ty bye.
It is good that you have many ideas about things you would like to do. However, you really need to lay out your priorities and what you think is important and valuable to you and your life.
Write down each of the things you were thinking of doing on a separate sheet of paper and draw a vertical line down the middle. Then list the advantages (pros) and disadvantages (cons) of each item. This will help you decide whether to pursue the activity or to put it to the side.
Best wishes for making some good decisions and then acting on those decision.
Teaching time management to children
Topic: Designing Your Day
October 4, 2012
Thank you for all the information on the site, it is very useful. I want to know how to teach time management to the kids. So thye won't miss the things they want to do and also complete the things on time.
I have 11 and 9 yrs old boys.
Children often imitate who their parents manage time. Parents who are habitually late usually have children with the same attitude toward being on time. But still many kids will procrastinate about doing unpleasant (to them) tasks.
Being able to do things they want to do is a good motivation to get things done on time. Let them guess how long a task will take, so that they have a goal to achieve with the promise of fun time afterwards.
Let them read Getting Your Homework Done to give them some tips on the subject.

Website said I had low intellect
February 8, 2012
Today I viewed a site(www.predictMyFuture.com) where the result that i viewed said that my intellect is very low,not even minimum intellect i possess and to some extent it might be true. Can you help me out in becoming like other intellectuals...
This will be of much help to me if you can guide me as iam facing much problems in this regard...can anyone help me...

You need to be careful of websites or people who say they can predict things about you, especially if they charge money to do so.
Since you are using a computer and the Internet, you already have a greater intellect than a majority of people.
Intellect means the ability to come to correct conclusions and to solve problems. A person who uses intelligence is using thought and reasoning abilities. However,knowledge is also very important in becoming an intellectual. This comes from extensive reading in various subjects.
I feel that the people at www.predictMyFuture.com are really the ones with low intellect for making such judgements.
I am sure that you have great potential, especially since you are interested in improving yourself.
Be curious, read, and observe, so that you are able to talk about various subjects. Others will then think of you as an intellectual.
Best wishes in your success.

I have lost my confidence towards life
September 16, 2011
i have lost my confidence towards life.actually im depressed for i could'nt make a good career .nw that i m married, unable 2 manage my thoughts i have low self esteem .whatever i think unable to workout .no one to share my problems nor guide me no improvement in my personality . i wish to enjoy my life free of mind pls help.
First of all, the fact that you are married means that someone loved you, had common interests, and saw potential in you. These are blessings. Also, you probably have relatives and family. Do not disregard them. Appreciate their existence.
List all the things you have achieved, even small items. You are better than your think. Do you realize all the people who don't even have the skill to use the Internet?
Do people you know have problems? Listen to them tell about their problems. Then, in return, they might listen to your problems.
You gain confidence and esteem by recognizing each thing you have completed and praising yourself for the accomplishment. It slowly build up your confidence to do bigger and better things.
Finally, sometimes depression is caused by a chemical imbalance. Often a doctor can prescribe medication to get you on track again.
I hope these idea help you become the person that you are destined to become.
