Success is usually the result of serious, on-going, daily effort and application. Learners must come to understand that it is critical that they do all the small things as they are presented. New knowledge is built upon previous knowledge. That’s why it’s so important for learners to attend school regularly, to pay close attention in class and to take their education seriously. Continuous application to work is essential for success.
