Is it you? Are you the next SUCCESSFUL nontraditional student?
Do you have what it takes?
Some people already KNOW that they are going to be successful.
They already may be new nontrad students, just going back to school after a break. Others are reaching out to talk to a college's financial aid office --- and finally going for their dream.
Others may not be sure of themselves. They think they MIGHT not make it, that they AREN'T GOOD ENOUGH to be successful. These students do not ever make that first step towards going back to school. There is just too much fear there.
What can help?
Many authors have written best-selling books about being successful. They wind up on the best-seller lists. Many of these books have the same message: you must BELIEVE IN YOURSELF.
Some books I like that can help nontraditional students in their quest for self-esteem and courage are:
1. Living Juicy - Daily Morsels for your Creative Soul by Sark (or ANY book by Sark...)
2. What to Say When you Talk to Yourself by Shad Helmstetter
3. Your Erroneous Zones by Wayne Dyer (or ANY book by him...)
Some other GREAT authors you may want to read are Ekhart Tolle, Deepak Chopra, Iyanla Vanzant, and Dale Carnegie.
