We can all agree that at least once in our life, there was one first impression we wish we could redo. Many people struggle with making good first impressions, although it is one of the most important skills a person can have. This skill helps one to maintain a good reputation in the eyes of others. Let me explain... if you constantly show up to class late, teachers may have a negative view of the type of student you are.
On the other hand, you may be a student who hands in assignments punctually, arrives to class on time, and is always present. This type of student would most likely receive good marks and teachers normally view this type of student as very responsible. As you can see, the impressions you make on people define how others view you. If you are viewed as a good, hardworking or caring person, you can only benefit from it.
Developing these life skills now can certainly help students later on and allow us to be the best people we can be. We should also remember that we should not just act responsibly and make a good impression just for the sake of impressing others but for the great feeling we get when we have made a good impression.
Now, you may be asking: How can I make a good impression in school? I have come up with 5 simple steps you can use to truly make the best impression, as well as to allow yourself to be successful:
1) Come to class on time. 2) Come to class prepared. 3) Do your homework and always hand it in on time. 4) Try to be present every day. 5) Be polite and nice to everyone.
Teachers will be complimenting you, fellow students will want to know your secret and, when you tell them, they’ll be shocked. The skill of making great impressions will come in handy, guaranteed!
