If you can transition well to a college environment right out of high school, then that might be the path for you. I believe continued education is the best. Upon graduating high school, students are faced with reality of attending college right away or waiting to try and find themselves in the real world. Those who are not academically nor financially prepared to attend college right after high school will most likely take a break. Taking long breaks from education can distract one and may lead to taking more than one year of a break.
The safety needs are met in the second stage in Maslow's pyramid and in the first stage of Erikson's stage of development. S Autonomy versus Shame and Doubt and Initiative versus Guilt is the place they figure out how to be independent and gain self-confidence (Boles et al., 2011). They are in various stages of improvement for every theorist. Erikson trusts that one can't advance progressively to the following stage until individuals have completely created in the stage some time recently. Maslow trusts that one can't consider the following stage of advancement if a person needs have not been met in the past stage.
(Khan Academy, 2015). Traditional selective attention research suggest the selective attention strategy is not an adequate generalexplanation for why readers tend to learn and recall important text information better than less important text information (Reynolds and Arnold, 1982).

I tend to stop focusing on my task, and start focusing on the distraction; which is almost anything that sound interesting or to loud. I will keep the principle in mind so that I can remember to avoid distractions that has nothing to do with what I am studying or doing.
Wisdom is a trait many people desire, but wisdom is gained through self-experience and cannot be taught. In the novel, Siddhartha by Hermann Hesse the protagonist Siddhartha identifies he can only learn from himself, when he converses with Gotama and discovers his teachings have flaws. “You have learned nothing through teachings, and so I think, O Illustrious One, that nobody finds salvation through teachings. (Hesse 27)” This is the pivotal moment for Siddhartha, from this moment forward, he knows to follow his own path in order to achieve Nirvana. Siddhartha discovers his inner peace when he goes through diverse experiences, and gains wisdom.
Understanding is how humankind learns to prosper in modern-day environments. It shapes the decisions we conceive, the actions taken, and how to present ourselves preferably. Unfortunately, these single stories that were acquired to understand, are in fact doing the opposite. Humans know less about one another than ever before, because of the single stories, our society believes they already know everything about each other. We place these single stories on ourselves and each other, while assuming everyone’s lives are following them and no one differs.
This article has given me many pointers on how to be successful in my life. Do not let anyone classify yourself as “smart” or “dumb” because you can be who you want to be. Nobody is dumb, they are just not trying hard enough. As it says in "You Can Grow Your Brain","At first, no one can read or solve equations. But with practice, they can learn to do it."
You need to be able to want to learn and be willing to put in extra work to understand better. All of that doesn't work if you don't have direction. The classes you take and the work you do should always put you one step closer to your end goal, whatever that end goal might be. So all in all, not the easiest thing to do. I know for myself, I lack in the motivation department and in asking questions.
Malcolm Gladwell in chapter nine of Outliers argues that to become an outlier, one has to be given a chance and he/she has to be willing to put effort to seize it. Gladwell uses Marita, who went to KIPP Academy, as an example. Marita wakes up at “five-forty-five a.m.” to prepare for school, and “leaves school at five p.m.” (pg.264). That’s almost a half day spent at school, which leaves little time for Marita’s responsibilities. However, KIPP promised that it will give her “a chance to get out” (pg.267) of poverty, and nonetheless Marita studied day to night in hopes of a much better future.
