Success in any endeavor is not a matter of luck, fate, or happenstance. And that is just as true about succeeding at school. This book will help you learn to look at your school experience from a new vantage point, one that allows you to increase your motivation and commitment, build your confidence, and take control over your educational experience instead of depending on others to get you where you want to go. How? You’ll learn to take ownership over your education. When you take ownership, and only then, you will succeed – and you will be more likely to succeed in other arenas of you life, as well. This book will teach you how to do that, and do that well.
