Out of the Classroom Lessons in Success: How to Prosper Without Being at the Top of The Class

Out of the Classroom Lessons in Success: How to Prosper Without Being at the Top of the Class - Cynthia Kocialski A book to inspire you to do more with your life and think differently about how you get there. A very simplistic book, easy to read and understand, you will probably wonder why you didn't think of these lessons yourself, this book serves as a gentle guiding hand to point you in the right direction of success. Although education is still important the author explains that focusing more on your true talents and passions will lead to higher success than trying to push yourself in areas your not really good at and only getting average grades. Experience, social skills, planning and self promoting are a few of the subjects discussed. You have to believe that you will succeed otherwise you won't. A couple of things that I will remember are 'if you fail, don't keep repeating the same mistakes, hoping this time it will work, try something different or pause for a while' and 'always find the positive in every negative'. The book contains examples of methods, experiences, conclusions at the end of each of the short chapters followed by short narratives/poems and illustrations (as above). Slightly repetitive at times, maybe on purpose to aid you.
