Expectations in today’s world of tough competition can be strenuous both for parents as well as students when results are announced. Later on students have to undergo huge hardships to secure admission in colleges of their choice. Seats in good colleges are less than the students passing out and hence many of them have to face disappointments. But it is not the end of the world and one can pursue higher academics and grades if the motivation to succeed is kept ‘alive’ from whichever college or university one gets admission.
Failure is the stepping stone to success and hard work is the ‘Stairs’ which takes you to your goals. Bill Gates failed in his academics but he had a vision to succeed and today he is a tech guru whom the world look forward for technology and solutions. Parents should not impose undue pressure on their children but encourage them to pursue their goals in their academic preference of their choice. The world is one big ocean and you have to build your own boat to swim the tide and wishing every student and parent the very best to face the challenges in the coming times!
