Going at this on your own requires the drive to succeed. You have to want to improve. It isn’t a matter of your teacher telling you, “You need to . . . ” or “I think your weakness is in” this area or that area. No matter what anyone ever tells you about what you need, you have to WANT to work on yourself in those areas that require improvement. If you are told you have weaknesses in any area. you have to be the one to decide to work on yourself. IT’S ON YOU!!!
