As we know, there are many students/people of bad
character. They will almost certainly develop negative traits that permeate
their entire being and it is only natural that they will struggle though
life. Bad habits may lead to bad choices in all sorts of directions. They
will fall in and out of relationships, study programmes and jobs, and find
it very hard to get ahead.
It is not easy to change such people but what they
need to realize is that they will find it very difficult to get along in
this world if they walk about with a bad attitude towards study / work /
other people. They are likely to live unproductive, unhappy lives unless
they change their outlook. School is basically their last chance. Teachers,
by their nature, will constantly be pushing them to do better but once a
student leaves, it is highly likely that no one else will.
There are many unhappy resentful types out there. What
they are is all their own creation.
After leaving school, there will likely be no one to
'push'. Some may eventually come to a realization and 'wake up' but - sooner
is better than later. Schools and teachers can help to stimulate change but
the major 'decision' can really only be initiated from within.
A person of good character is 1000 times more likely
to live a happy, decent life. Positive opportunity will 'present' itself; a
negative mind would likely never recognise it.
