In chapter two of M Neil Bowne and Stuart Keely book Striving For Excellence In College there are many good ideas stating positive and negative attitudes that people take toward their learning The idea that I found interesting was the one that said that Seeing ourselves as inadequate incompetent worthless stupid or lazy keeps us from striving for excellence 11 This idea is interesting to me because people who have this self-images have a very low self-esteem and this can likely keep them from achieving their goals not only academically but also in life The attitudes that this idea states does not allows individuals to have a positive view of themselves Also people with this kinds of attitudes tend to avoid taking risks because they fear of failing and there are not any expectations of being successful Furthermore the bad image that a person can have of themselves it can be developed by the influence of society and the parents The importance of having self-confidence is the lesson that I gain from this idea This attitude allows me to have a positive view of myself and the situations that I will face in life As a student in College I want to change some of my negative attitudes and be able to take risks without fear
