If a Dux is the top student in a tertiary group, the achievers in high school are obviously Duxlings, right!? To outshine the rest, Duxlings don’t leave anything to chance – they grab the bull by the horns and make things happen for themselves.
Signs You are a Go-Getter Duxling
The more you answered “yes”, the more of a go-getter you already are. Any points you answered “no” to are simply the areas which you need to work on to improve. That’s the beauty of being young – you have time on your side, and are embracing a personal growth mindset before you get too set in your ways!
What differentiates go-getters from the mainstream is your willingness to look beyond your current circumstances and obstacles. Creatively maximizing your resources and rising above difficulties is second nature to you.
You don’t believe that life just happens TO you. Rather, you believe that:
“The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be.” Ralph Waldo Emerson
You achieve this by thinking critically about your future.
