Lessons from a Former Teacher Part Two

Hey guys.  Please check out yesterday's blog entry before reading this.

I know I ruffled a few feathers with my last post...mostly 'A' students (just kidding).  No matter what side of the argument you are on, you must admit that the infamous educational model is flawed. I am referring to the model, actually an ideal, that is so very popular- the model/ideal that tells you to go to school, study really hard, get outstanding grades, go to college, graduate and get a good job. Let's face it; this model is seriously flawed.  It may have worked years ago but not now.  If this were not true, we would not have so many college graduates with student loans and low-paying jobs or no jobs or jobs not related to their degree.

I graduated ten years ago and have fellow classmates who are still looking for jobs their field  or have simply settled for something because they have financial obligations.  Then, there are others who have found the dream jobs but absolutely hate them because they have idiot bosses who have no idea what they are doing.  Raise your hand if this is you.  

How does this happen?  Why do so many people find themselves with these 'C' student bosses who continually get promoted to senior positions?  Robert Kiyosaki believes that " 'A' students learn to do a job, 'C' students ... learn about money."   'C' students learn how the game of life really works.  And this is what the 'A' student lacks.  I also believe there are a few other characteristics that 'C' students have that give them an advantage over 'A' student.

 Besides people skills and life skills, 'C' students:
  • have hustle.  They are not afraid to put themselves out there if it means they have a chance at getting what they want.
  • are fearless.  When they lock in on something, they can become unrelenting.  Even when they fail, they continue pushing towards their goals.  For them, failure does not mean their goal is unattainable, it just means their method/plan needs tweaking.
  • don't seek perfection.  They didn't seek it in school and it works to their advantage.  They don't wait for the "right" time to do anything.  They just jump right in.
This is what have helped the 'C' student surpass the 'A' student.  They gave the right mindset.  If you are seeking success in entrepreneurship, you to must have the right attitude and mindset ...  the 'C' student mindset.

Until my next post.... I wish you peace, patience and prosperity.
