    Hey "C" Students where are you know and what are you doing in your life..

    Hey guys. I was a B student throughout school. I'm working as an engineer now.

    Just wondering where the C students are and what they are doing.
    Cause I always heard that school wasn't everything.

    I was an A student in elementary but a B student in high school & college.  I, too, had a professional career w/civil service.  I suppose that A students are the ones who will be....THE MOST SUCCESSFUL in life because avenues & opportunities are open to them that AREN'T open to B & especially C students.  A students have a MARKED advantage both academically & career-wise.  They will advance to positions which is UNIMAGINED for B & particularly C students.

    C students will have average careers.  Many of them will be in low-level Mcjobs.  C students are the most unsuccessful students.  C students will be mediocre throughout their career lives, if they have careers.  Most of them will be in menial jobs.  C student, NOW YOU WISH YOU WERE MORE DILIGENT IN YOUR STUDIES. If you were better students, you would have been.....MORE SUCCESSFUL, but you AREN'T because of your C average. Well, my synopsis.

      C students who are successful have CONNECTIONS(e.g. George W. Bush); those who DON'T have CONNECTIONS will have mediocre, low to moderate earning jobs if lucky.  Many will have to be content w/Mcjobs.

      George W bush smile smile smile....I didn't know that.

      I think some c students are aren't interested in school...But music or sports... Or something specifically anti-book...but can get them rich in the future..

      Dwight I tend to agree with you that some students are only interested in sports, music, the arts and therefore don't care about other classes. One has to (want) to do well in school in order to study hard & put in the effort. Many don't care!

      I see.....Well I worked fairly hard most of the times. I could've worked harder...But what I found disappointing was that there were somethings that affected my grades that I had no control over.

    I guess I was a C and sometimes B student on average.
    Today; I invest in real estate properties, authored a book, sometimes teach classes regarding dating/relationships, and work in Business Development/marketing or in sales for software companies when I do work for "others".
    It didn't hurt that I was also selective about who I spent time with or entered into relationships with. Marrying the wrong person can break you! (We also don't have any children.)
    We live in a fairly big house, travel, .. All in all life is fairly good!
    I believe the reason it's often said that "school is isn't everything" is because it's kind of foolish to believe every student makes it their "top priority" or is doing their very best!
    Whenever someone doesn't like something they're likely to put in less effort. On the other hand if that same person finds something they love they tend to excel.
    Having "marketable talents/skills" and make a difference as well as "looking good".
    A lot of entrepreneurs are impatient or headstrong and don't make the best students.
    This explains why you might see a high school or college drop out become a millionaire.
    Another factor that can't be overlooked when it comes to success is a person's "people skills". Some folks have a knack for lighting up a room the minute they walk in.
    Every company has some super bright intelligent people who did extremely well in school but find themselves "stuck" in a position beneath someone they're smarter than.
    A lot of hiring and promotion decisions come down to personality and office politics.
    Simply being book smart and working hard oftentimes won't take you to the top. Likability can't be overrated.
    Last but not least some people actually start taking life more seriously (after) school!
