A Foundation is an erected and constructed wall that firmly holds a building. so there can not be a building without a foundation, but what matters is the nature of foundation upon which a house is built upon. You can’t build a house on an ordinary ground and not expect it to fall within a short while by the force of whirlwind or other natural disasters.

How to build a strong academic foundation for a successful future

Below are few practical ways to build a strong academic foundation for a successful future.

1. Determination

Determination is the first key to building a life of success in any endeavour, no one becomes great with just work alone, you must develop a strong desire to succeed.

2. Focus

Focus is a straightforward gaze or eyesight. Nothing on earth is achievable without the key to focus. Focus tells you, although it is difficult, yet I can still make it.

People who make it big in life are people of focus, no myopic eyesight can achieve better in life.

As a student, your number one goal of achievement is your academic, and you must do all to pay your attention to it, never to be distracted until that which you expect is achieved. In a simple word “focus is a continued gaze on a project amidst distractions”.

3. Peer group influence

There is a saying that states: you are exactly your friend, show me your friend and I will tell you who you are.

You can’t tell me you make friend with a dull person and don’t expect to be dull, it is either you influence him or he influence either positively or negatively, one must happen. Follow the company of the brilliants, definitely, you will become one, even the bible says “iron sharpens iron”.

Make up your mind to be selective in friends making, because your friends can determine your future.

4. Openness

If you must succeed most especially academically, then your mind must be open to knowledge at all times at different levels. Those who must succeed and make mark academically must stretch their mind beyond the field of their studies, that’s how we know an intelligent student, you must be versatile in all areas.

5. Early preparation

There is a saying that states: “early preparation prevents poor performance”. If you must not perform poor in a section semester then you must make up your mind to begin your studies immediately the lectures starts, waiting to study during tests and exam is practical to prove of failure waiting to happen.

As a matter of fact for you to deliver much in an examination, you must have much in your upstairs, and only one day can’t be enough to commit the whole contents into your brain, and so steady practice must be done on daily bases, don’t sleep over a topic treated, make sure you glance over a topic treated for that day.
