Life is much more than the grades. It's more about the process than the results.
We’re conditioned to believe that the way we perform at school is the way we’ll perform at life. We’re conditioned to believe that what’s valued and important in school is what we should value and find important in life. The truth is, no one’s opinion can define our future. The truth is no teachers thought or assessment of you is final.
The type of society we live in, we are not allowed to fail. We are not allowed to fall. We are conditioned to believe that failing is worthless; failing means you are not capable enough. There is a huge contradiction between what we have been taught to believe in schools and what the truth is.
We are not defined by our grades. We are so much more than a grade on a sheet of paper for one subject. Our mental health is more important than our grades. Our physical health is more important than our grades. It’s not that our grades aren’t important. It’s just that they are not everything. The truth is, we all have strengths and weaknesses. There’ll be some subjects that you perform extremely well on and others that you struggle with.
Follow your intuition. Follow your heart. Follow your passion. Follow where that natural momentum comes to you. Because when school measures our success based on grades and results that’s what disappoints us in life. Because life is so much not about the results. It’s so not about the destination. But it’s so much more about the process.
FAIL BIG. You only live once. So do what you feel passionate about. Don’t be afraid to fail.
There’s an old IQ test was with nine dots and you had to draw a five lines with a pencil within these nine dots without lifting the pencil. The only way to do it was to go outside the Box. So don’t be afraid to go outside the box. Don’t be afraid to think outside the box.
Listen, your grades don’t define how smart you are. The number of followers you have on instagram doesn’t define your worth. And people’s opinions of you don’t define your future. Remember, grades are just one metric. And grades matter when that subject matter to you. Because the interesting thing is, in school grades are everything. But in life, grades and exams are temporary, but education is permanent.
