“The greatness of a man is not measured by how much wealth he acquires, but by his integrity and his ability to positively affect those around him,” said Bob Marley, the greatest reggae artist of all time. J.K. Rowling, Oprah Winfrey, George Lucas, Bill Gates, Angelina Jolie, and her ex-husband Brad Pitt are just a few of the many philanthropists who donate their money and time to help the less fortunate. More and more wealthy people are becoming involved in such causes and using their wealth to help others through charities and societies. Wealthy individuals are no longer identified by the amount of wealth they have but rather by the positive things they do to their society using their possessions. However, they need to follow up on their efforts to see how it transforms the lives of the people they intended to help. While being considerate of the have-nots is a virtue, having the vision to improve their lives requires a purpose as well as a strategy.
Many students believe that they are naturally bad at Math, and cannot improve in that area. This is simply not true. To be sincere, I once thought the same way until I realized that I was failing mathematics basically because I was ignorant. Studies show that being good at math is more of hard work than talent; the more you practice, the more you improve and enjoy the subject. True to this, I practiced after every unit and visited my tutor when a particular problem overwhelmed me. As a champion mathematician, I can assert that to be good in mathematics requires shedding the defeatist attitude, practicing hard every day and seeking help when a problem overwhelms you.
