First and foremost we need to understand the two words; Academic Breakthrough. Academic Breakthrough simply means having success in your education. Below are the keys to Academic Breakthrough
1. Be Disciplined: As Students, learn to listen more and talk less. God gave you two ears to listen more and one tongue to talk less. Take note; empty barrel makes the most noise.
2. Prepare/Plan: Always plan ahead. Success loves preparation; He who fails to plan, plans to fail. In other to be successful in your Academics as students you must sit down to plan. In fact, at this junction, you are going to do something. So bring out your pen and a sheet of paper, you have 10 Minutes to draw out your reading timetable to be used at home.
3. Wisdom: Wisdom is the application of the knowledge that you have acquired, failure to apply the knowledge that you have acquired makes you a fool, it doesn’t make you wise. Regularly work out or solve questions on all your subjects.
4. Study Hard: Make sure you read and study your book at least one hour in a day either before you go to bed, or at midnight or very early in the morning.
Now let’s move on to how to have an irreversible academic breakthrough. Irreversible Academic Breakthrough simply means having success in your education that cannot be altered or changed.
Read Daniel 1:3-8,17 & 20. We shall be considering the four Hebrew boys; Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael and Azariah who had irreversible academic breakthrough during their time. In life, “nothing goes for nothing” even in a town in Sierra Leone called Free Town, “nothing goes for nothing”. Please take note, the Bible tells us that salvation is free; by Grace you’re saved Ephesians 2:5-8 not of works so that no one can boast. Salvation is free but, “nothing goes for nothing”. Here is wisdom; Salvation is free only because someone paid for it. Who paid for your salvation? Matthew 1:21, 1 John 1:7.
Daniel paid the ” Price”, he became uncomfortable! What a sacrifice! He was comfortable been uncomfortable! You must pay the sacrifice of waking up at night to study, you must stop the habit of sleeping 10-hours without waking up to read at night. Daniel and his fellow Hebrews never failed the moment they made that sacrificial decision of not eating out of the King’s meat.. They kept on excelling..
