Synopsis

Are you a happy, motivated student? Or do you drag yourself to class every morning? In The Happy Student, Daniel Wong describes the five key steps you need to take in order to become a happy, fulfilled, and successful student. Daniel scored straight A’s all through college and received numerous academic honors and awards, but he didn’t find fulfillment in his achievements until he discovered the five steps. Daniel draws on his personal journey—from unhappy overachiever to happy straight-A student—to guide you through your own transformational process.

If you’re a high school or college student who has begun to question what the true purpose of education is, The Happy Student will lead you to the right answer. If you’re a teacher or parent, you’ll find inspirational ideas in The Happy Student to help your students become intrinsically motivated.

"You must become purpose-driven rather than performance-driven," says Daniel. "You must ask the 'why' questions before you ask the 'how' questions. You must learn how to climb the ladder more effectively, but only after you’ve made sure that the ladder is leaning against the right wall."

In The Happy Student, Daniel shows you how to:
  • Enjoy a new sense of purpose in your academics
  • Keep your motivation levels high using practical strategies
  • Conquer your fear of failure
  • Set meaningful goals and achieve them
  • Increase your self-confidence
  • Deal with the expectations of parents and teachers
  • Fall in love with learning again

Don't leave your happiness to chance. The Happy Student can make the difference between frustration and fulfillment in your academics.
