Comments from Students on the Leadership Seminar Video
Hi Professor Toupadakis,
Thank you for the link to “It's Never Too Late to Find the
Right Path”. I did not go to the seminar that day, but I
found this clip very inspirational and relevant to my own experiences.
In the beginning of the CHE 2A course, I did not do so well, probably
because I kept thinking about acing the first midterm. However,
after reading your encouraging email and the quotation by Meister
Eckhart, I was very inspired to do my best in the second midterm.
I realized that it is alright if I don't do well as long as I
kept trying. This kind of thinking worked. I wasn't so focused
on the grade but rather on putting all my effort to do what I
already know and trying my best. At the end, I had a 24% increase
in my second midterm.
Now that I watched this clip, I am further inspired to look at
life in a different direction. So it's true, college isn't all
about studying. By joining clubs and trying out different workshops,
my life seems to have a better flow than just sitting at a desk
and reading. Once again, thank you for the link. It brought hope
and relief to me as well as a better understanding of how I should
handle college, even when there are personal problems or other
matters going on. :) Are you going to have another seminar or
workshop next quarter? It would be great if the topic of success
is expanded because of people's different situations. Other than
that, great job professor!
See you on Monday.
