"I'm a failure" "I'll never make it."That's the kind of affirmation we hear people say. To overcome this feeling of worthlessness you need to make 3 little steps that will help you discover the genius withinyou.

1. You need to motivate yourself.

First of all, remember that great people learned a basic andessential quality you need to acquire: persistence. Verysuccessful people failed many times, like most of us. Butthey get up right away and they begin again and again untilthey eventually succeed.

We can motivate ourselves by seeing the result in our mindas if it has already occurred. Feel what you would feel ifyou have better grades. Name this feeling.Amplify this feeling until it becomes very pleasant. Now,you are going to add some new feelings upon this firstfeeling. Do you remember a time when you were really excitedabout something? When you have this excitemant in you,add it to the first very pleasant feeling as if you put acoat of excitement over the coat of 'very pleasant state'.Let this feeling of excitement diffuse in you and notice howyou feel.

Notice how feel very motivated, calm and confident.And for a moment, you know that you will succeedin school. But something holds you back. You need to make this second step....

2. You need to get rid of the beliefs that hold you back

Consider the law of belief: whatever you believe becomesyour reality. Once you understand and appropriate thisbelief in yourself, you discover that you can do many thingsand especially have better grades.

Throughout your life you learn. It's a never-ending process.School is just the beginning of this process with itsspecial rules and rewards, which can sometimes seem unfair.

You begin to change by being aware that you are a potentialgenius and that you CAN do better and you WILL. What do youlearn from having bad grades? Consider that it is anopportunity to learn. And most important, it's a chance tolearn that you're not the problem; it's only yourstrategies. That's why you need to take the last lesson...You need to learn how to learn

3. You need new strategies.

If something doesn't work, do something else. First, beaware of your learning style. Are you visual, auditory,kinesthetic? Remember that you have multiple intelligences and when you use them as much as possible you increase yourchances of having better results.

Have the end in mind. Act as if you already had thesolution. Now you only need to fill in the blanks. If youalready know where to go, your brain will help you find thesolutions. Use mind maps, movement and imagination. Learning how to learn is a necessity for children and adultsto perform better in life.

These three steps are important to succeed in school. Onestep takes care of your beliefs, another of your emotionsand the other one of your strategies to have better gradesand to perform better in life.
