W elcome to the Attitude Module. Look at your Anxiety score on the LASSI. If you scored between: 75-100 You probably don’t need to give a high priority to improving your attitude. 50-75 You should consider improving your strategies. 0-50 You need to improve your attitude toward college to avoid serious problems that would prevent you from succeeding in college. Using the information presented in this module, you will be able to improve your attitudes and increase your likelihood for academic success. Being successful at anything begins with a positive attitude. Consider the1999, 2000, and 2001 Tour de France winner, Lance Armstrong, who fought a difficult battle with cancer. Without a positive mental attitude, he would have been able to overcome a life-threatening disease and then go on to win one of the most grueling events in sports for three years in a row? No matter what you set out to do, the journey begins with your attitude. You need to have the belief that: You want to do something. It is worthwhile doing. You will do what is necessary to succeed. Your attitude toward college relates to how important your education is to you and how committed you are to doing the work it takes to complete it successfully. Everything you do affects how well you do in college. The effect may be positive or negative, but there will be an effect. A person’s attitude is one of the most important factors associated with success. In every profession (e.g., sports, entertainment, education, business, medicine, politics, the military) successful people believe they can succeed, and they maintain the energy, interest, and focus required to succeed. It is not always easy, but most successful people accept and face challenges in order to accomplish their most important and meaningful goals.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
