Life Skills

How to Pass a Degree with Confidence
A study guide for a university or college degree.  

Anthony Fox MSc BSc Hons

The seed of your potential is unlimited when you have the life skills to conquer any fear of failure. Without life skills such as confidence and belief in your abilities the task of gaining that degree will be much harder to accomplish. The right attitude throughout your studies is a necessary prerequisite to achieving what you want.

Remember to take action and improve your life skills because no matter who you are and what skills you possess we can all improve. Take a good look around you, at any product or service. What do you see? Can it be improved? Sure it can! It’s the same for us as individuals we can all improve our life skills. Even a smart person is not always right. It’s easy to fall into a trap, of blinding our reasoning with bigotry and bias without the necessary life skills to negate it from our thinking.

How To Pass A Degree With Confidence is more than just a tutorial about the most important topics to understand at college or university, it also contains important information on life skills such as; how to build your confidence, how to set your goals effectively, how to cope with stress and much more. It’s vital information for you on how to cope with the stress and strain of gaining that college or university degree.

Each chapter has several sections so the topic can be easily assimilated and read. You will see how life skills are important tools to have in both an academic and a social environment and at the same time learn how to use those skills to avoid the most common pitfalls that students face.

Included in the book are many stories about my experience at university to help demonstrate the key points of the main topics. So when we combine life skills with action we have a recipe for success. When we learn life skills, we are moving forward with our goals.

The world is full of great ideas, but without action they are just ideas. Successful people have one common denominator; they put their ideas into action. Remember what Lao-tzu said, “The journey of a thousand miles begins beneath one's feet."

I devote a chapter in my book to: why students fail with explanation and examples so that you don’t fail?

Plus: the number one topic you should understand, it could mean the difference between passing and failing?

Here is a list of stories included in “How to Pass a Degree with Confidence” they are not in any order, purely random.

To be or not to be

It’s never too late

We don't all wear the same shoes

We have all the time in the world

Sat there like a Cheshire cat

There’s a bit more meat on the bone

More stress than a chaining smoking nurse

The golden rule

How I got my T-Shirt

A girl came knocking on my window

Realise your potential it’s within you to succeed. Your success is not proportional to the effort you put in, that part is purely random.
