Success can be interpreted In many different ways. From having success by going to college or success by being able to reach the highest point of a tall tree. One thing you must know is that success has the same meaning even though it may be used for different reasons. In our generation there are students who lack the ability of being able to succeed and being able to recognize the importance of succeeding. Success is just a simplistic word, but the meaning behind this simple word is much more what meets the eye, it may not be noticeable at first nor it may be recognizable to others in the end. So what is success? And how how can you achieve it or “capture” it ? The answer is actions. Your actions will be the ones tested to see if you 're…show more content…
There are several ways a Anaheim student can become successful, what about learning subjects that are above their own grade level at a young age? This idea will not only prepare students for higher level classes but they will also be highly educated in that certain subject which is a win in their education. I am a student myself and I highly suggest that this idea should be put into consideration. It so seems that this idea of learning above the students level in understanding is ideal. It is stated by Malcolm Gladwell the author of Margarita’s Bargain that students who learn a higher level of math, English, history, etc, will surpass those who specifically educate themselves in the exact level that they are intended to learn. Frankly, I agree with their ways of teaching since this article that Malcolm wrote about was a KIPP school, and let me just say I do not agree with everything they have to offer even though they seem to be one of the best schools in New York. For instance they have a protocol that goes by the name of “SSLANT” I will not go into details in what this protocol means, just know that it 's intense.

A big deal of Anaheim students which also includes high school students around the world have many personal problems that get in the way of their train of thought, as well as how they perform in school.

Another way an Anaheim HS student can strive to succession is to have those who can encourage them and believe in them too. Family,teachers, friends, just one person who gives them the power to believe in themselves will save them. One thing that parents need to understand which is also implied in The secret to raising smart kids by S.Carol Dweck, that sometimes parents discourage their own children. Sometimes the parents expect too much, and give them nothing for them to grip on or hold onto this long rope of anxiety and paranoia. It may seem like an exaggeration but what I say is nothing but the truth since I live in a strict household, which is aside from the point of course. There has to be an understanding that students will make mistakes, that I don 't doubt. All a (Anaheim) student needs is a little encouragement from family or teachers, anyone really that will
