Education Saves Students

When I was younger, one of my most definitive responses about my potential aspirations was, "I want to be a doctor." I always found myself fantasizing about treating patients and using the amazing devices I use in movies to do so. My experience did not inspire my ideas. I based my thoughts about my dream career and educational potential on movies and other fun stories I had read. Currently, I wish it was as easy as I once imagined. When I've grown older and experienced more, I've discovered that in order to succeed in any profession, one must work extremely hard and be passionate about it. I have also learned that my accomplishment of my educational goals is not solemnly based on my abilities, but also the input of the teachers. Through experience, I have learned that for one to achieve, they should not only be motivated to excel, but also be led by talented and motivated teachers.
I learned from two separate experiences that the success of a student depends on their input as well as the input of their teachers and their hard work. I learned that the application of different techniques was important for students to understand and get interested in a subject. An example of a negative experience I have had in my educational life was when I was in my sophomore year of studies. I had an algebra class that I was supposed to pass to do the take an advanced class. The course had an excellent teacher. She was friendly in class, and her delivery was always excellent. However, I overestimated my ability to do the math and did not attend most of the classes. I would just copy notes from friends and go for continuous assessment tests.
The exams came, and I realized that I had not studied hard enough in the semester. Therefore, I tried to study, but there was too much to cover. Thus, when the exam came, I did not have much to write. I knew from the start of the math paper that I would fail terribly. I got out of the exam room after half an hour after writing my name and answering a few questions. I was very embarrassed. I was even more uncomfortable with the idea that I was sure I was going to fail and that it was all my fault.
I waited for the results hoping that a miracle would happen. However, as fate would have it, I failed. I was among the people who did not get more than 50 percent. Therefore, I had to retake the course and study hard. The lecturer was also excellent. I passed my CATS, and when the final exam came, I was confident that I had adequately prepared. I did the exam and passed. I was delighted. It turns out that my initial failure was a blessing in disguise. It was a wake-up call for my colleagues and me.
The assigned readings made the matter of intelligence and passing exams clear to me. The reading game a better perspective concerning the functioning the brains of students and how it impacts passing exams. The article called �Brainology� was especially enlightening. According to the article, intelligence is not fixed. Therefore, it is wrong to say that every person has a particular and that it cannot increase or reduce (Dweck par. 3). I can relate to the argument of the writer because it is such a wrong mentality that led to my failing. However, after in my sophomore year, I realized that people could increase their mental capabilities by working hard. I also encountered another quote in another reading, "Gritty individuals are tortoise-like, distinguished by their propensity to maintain effort and interest over the years despite failure, adversity, and plateaus in progress� (Duckworth, Peterson, Matthews, & Kelly, p. 1088). I can relate to the article because my inability to work hard and be consistent in my first attempt of the Algebra course cost me. In the second attempt, I was persistent and hardworking and therefore passed.
I will apply my readings and experience to ensure that I pass my English class. I hope to be proficient in English. I hope that my hard work and persistence will enable me to become a good English speaker and also enable me to use the language in various aspects of my life. I am now motivated to study hard and practice my language skills even harder. I know that I can improve my understanding through practice and that my input is essential in ensuring that I pass.
In conclusion, in my past, I have encountered failure and success. However, I have contributed to the failures at the time by not working hard enough or not being persistent in my hard work. After reading the assigned readings of the English course, I understand that teachers are just guides and that students need to work hard to succeed in their education. Therefore, I will work hard and respect my teachers to ensure I pass the English class as well as other classes while in the institution and others. I hope my continuous input and persistence will bear fruits.
