Tips for Success Be healthy To succeed in your classes, you need to take care of both mind and body. Eat a good diet, be physically active, get plenty of sleep, and find healthy ways to deal with stress. Set goals Successful people set goals and then work hard to achieve them. Get in the habit of setting short-term and long-term goals. For example, a short term goal might be to get an A on your next history test. A long-term goal might be to get an A for your final grade. Get help if you need it Most questions can be answered and most problems resolved just by talking to the right person. If you have a problem or a concern, figure out how to resolve it. If you aren’t sure what to do or where to go for help, talk to a counselor or advisor. Also talk to your parents about any problem or concern you may have. A parent can help you figure out how to deal with any situation.
