First Woman Field’s Medal Winner

For the first time in history, a woman has received the highest honor in mathematics, often nicknamed the Nobel Prize of mathematics.

Since it was established in 1936, the Fields Medal had gone only to men, until Wednesday, when Maryam Mirzakhani received it in Seoul, South Korea, from the International Mathematical Union.

“It is fun — it’s like solving a puzzle or connecting the dots in a detective case”
– Maryam Mirzakhani

Get Better Grades Now… Help Spread The Word!

I recently had someone in Boston write this on a few blackboards for me… That’s when I thought I might as you to do the same – spread the word to other students.

If you do, take a photo and send it to me and I’ll post it here on the blog.

Thanks in advance for helping us get the word out to more students. Sometimes all it takes is one idea to transform a mediocre student into a ‘genius’. By doing this, you’re engaging in a concept called ‘paying it forward’. Engaging the Law Of Attraction is something special that once you set it in motion, good things will start to happen, almost like magic.

Do it because you want to help and then see and tell me what happens!

US IT Graduates

More and more computer science majors at U.S. colleges are opting not to take programming jobs after they graduate.

Not because they don’t want to work in the computer industry, it’s just that they want to spend a few more years in America before having to move to India.

Sorry, I couldn’t resist.

That’s not just funny, it’s a reality – the global landscape is changing very quickly. Are your skills going to be enough to adapt?

Frustrated With School?

One of the ironies of the world is that in under developed countries, young people are dying to get to school – in some cases that’s literally true. I don’t want to get on a political soap box because that’s not what this blog is about. Others can do a much better job of promoting that agenda than I can.

I, however, can change the world one student at a time.

If you’re frustrated with school, ask yourself why. I mean really ask yourself the question honestly. Is it because you’re lazy? Tired? Bored? Scared (being bullied)? Not doing as well as you’d like? Not in the popular crowd/group?

Ask yourself the question until YOU KNOW the real reason.

When you do know the absolute real REASON, deal with it.

Deal with it because it’s what’s preventing you from getting the RESULTS you want and dream about.

We’re REASON or we’re RESULTS.

It’s as simple as that.

It’s as complicated as that.

Complicated because UNLESS you’re honest with yourself, you’ll never deal with the #1 obstacle in your path. That means you’ll never achieve your true/ultimate destiny.

That’s enough for you to think about for today, or not.

Most people won’t give much thought, but then again most people (as many as 80% of 8 out 10) end up unhappy in their lives as adults, with regrets.

Regrets that go all the way back to their school days when they KNOW they could have made a shift that would have changed their lives forever.

If only they had know then what they know now.

Well guess what?

You are young enough NOW to make the change.

Make it and I guarantee you that in 20 years from now, you’ll remember this blog post when you meet someone who has regrets and is unhappy. You’ll realise that YOU made the effort when it counted… RIGHT NOW.

And they didn’t.

Don’t be that person — I know too many of them.

Lives lost and ruined because of lack of discipline, self esteem and self worth.

But also pure, sheer laziness and lack of will.

You can achieve ANYTHING you want in life (or school), you just need to WANT IT BAD ENOUGH and then do WHATEVER it takes to make it happen.

Bad study habits – you need to change them

  • Not doing the reading (at all let alone BEFORE the lecture).
  • Trying to learn everything on your own without a MasterMind Group.
  • Not taking enough notes.

  • Getting stressed during exams and tests.
