Right mindset by controlling our thoughts on positive achievements which control our emotions, Focus on our courage to start something new & see it through. Enhance our self esteem by finishing work, not to gossip, & equal to others. Use our imagination to succeed, listen to others, & try to be popular to attract friends. Avoid boredom & fear, and be aware of time and set achievable goal which are not very high but compatible and have the confidence,enthusiasm,& enjoyment to do it.
