Stick to your dream
18TH NOVEMBER, 2022. THURSDAY 3RD ARTICLE IN THE MONTH.
I was privileged to be in a private secondary schools some days ago. They just reached the SS one class and when I got to the class I noticed that all of them were offering science subjects. I intentionally asked them whether it was their own free will or the school imposed it on them. One of them told me that he would like to be in art class.
I feel the school is inconsiderate because I can't imagine forcing all students in the school to be in science class just because you don't have teachers. The school should be able to get teachers for art subjects or inform the student's parents to take him to another school.
I have advised the student to get home and inform his parents that he would like to be in art class and give me the feedback the following day. The school has also said they will be starting next term but I feel that is not enough because there are basic things you need to know in the first term especially in literature and other related subjects. I am not trying to spoil the image of the school but to help the students to realise their dreams.
You need to stick to your dream. Don't allow anybody to allow you to deviate from your dream. Follow it no matter the consequence even if you will have to leave that school to go to another school it is better to follow your dream.
Your dream gives you a hope of what to realise in the future and stirs up ambition to go after it. Literally put, a dream refers to series of mental images of events appealing to an individual during his sleep. It could also mean a cherished desire for something you hope to acquire in life. Your dream gives direction to what goals to set for success. When you are having dreams for excellence, you set great goals. Small goals are usually sit by middle-of-the-road students. When you set smart goals for success, you must pursue your goals and stick to your dream. Your dream focuses your attention on your target while your goals drive you along the right path to your success.
Excellence is within your reach if only you will stick to your dream. Detractors are outside there around you to disturb your thought if you permit them. Nobody will ever make you an average performer except you allow him. The target of critics and gainsayers is to derail you on the path of progress.
You might even have around you unscrupulous students whose business is to merry-go-round in social activities and play games. You must be principled enough to stick to your dream without allowing what people say or do around you to change your focus. What makes for excellence is your ability to hold on to the principles of success without being distracted.

Do have a lovely day.
I hope the parents also are considerate to listen to their child because this may affect him and others in the future. Children should be allowed to choose and stick to their dreams as this is the best thing for them to focus on and be passionate about what they want to do in life.
