I want to be the best student

I am in Class 11. My new academic session has just begun, and this year I want to stand out from the crowd. I want to be the best student, but thinking about how to do this makes me frustrated and stressed.

You may set a goal for yourself, and it is a good habit. I, however, feel that I see a competitive streak in you. Healthy competition is good. However, what if you are unable to achieve the goal you have set for yourself? It is important to set realistic goals that one can reach to avoid disappointment later. Every person wants to excel in life; however, not everyone is successful. Failure may be very disappointing. So to avoid getting there we need to appreciate all the things that we are good at. Competition with yourself is advisable. Be at your best and that is the success of your life.
