In most cases, secrets about success are known to only a few who are privileged to be taught by their mentors, teachers, parents or even by intuition. This book demystifies the mystery around success and makes it accessible to all who cares to know by virtue of their reading this book. The good book says that people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Knowledge of what is to be done to succeed is the basic difference between students who fail and those who succeed.

Success is not meant for only a privileged few. Success is meant for everybody who craves for it. However, you need to know what to do to consistently succeed. Quite a number of students experiment with success. Today, they will succeed; tomorrow, they fail. It is because they do not understand the proven methodology of continuous success. God did not create anybody a failure.

Every student can succeed if they know what to do. This book will empower you with the knowledge of what you need to do to succeed incessantly. The book discusses hidden principles that students can apply to consistently excel in their exams and endeavors.

The author pragmatically articulates the principles you can follow to achieve continual success. Beginning from the conception of the vision to succeed, to the invaluable importance of the God factor in success, he extensively & uniquely elucidates seven insightful dynamics of academic success.

He concludes with a charge that success is a must for every student. It is not even an option. Yes, indeed the only option left for you as a student is to succeed and succeed very well! Have a pleasant and a revealing ride as you read this book.

Chapter One – The Power of Vision

Josh was a science student in year 5 in a boarding high school somewhere in Ogun state, South West, Nigeria. He was one of the most brilliant students in his class at the time. The battle for supremacy was between him and three other classmates who consistently compete with one another for the top spot. Things were going on well for Josh until he suddenly fell sick in the 1st term of his year 5. He could not attend classes in school as he was virtually bedridden throughout that term. Josh made an arrangement with his friend, Opyso to help out with taking class notes while he was not around. Even though Opyso was not a science student like Josh, he went out of his way to collect notes for his friend in all his subjects.

By the time Josh came back, classes were over and it was time for the 1st term exams. Remaining undaunted, Josh diligently read the notes put together by Opyso and took the exams. Soon after, results were pouring in. The first result that was released was in English. Josh came out tops! Before you know what was happening, Josh again came tops in Chemistry. The school was thrown into confusion….what is going on? How come this boy that we were told was sick and not in class for a whole term came back and outshone us in major subjects. Some said “it’s a lie”, he was not sick; he went home to read. They could not fathom how a sick person could come back and perform superlatively well more than the entire students in Class 5! It was shocking and this caused some ripples within the school community. How did Josh do it? Was it true that he wasn’t sick? Could it be that he was feigning sickness and actually went home to study? Does that make sense? Was he reading and studying on his sick bed?
