Ambitions are an important part of the lives of adolescents. Whether realistic or not, they help teenagers make sense of their lives and their futures. They can use their ambitions like a compass to help chart a life course and to provide direction for spending their time and energy. Ambitions can increase the chances that adolescents will take schoolwork seriously, gain admission to the college of their choice, and view their success as a product of hard work.
Although very ambitious, many adolescents find it very difficult to fulfill their dreams. They are unaware of steps they can take that may help them achieve their ambitions. Often their ambitions are dreamlike and not realistically connected to specific educational and career paths.
Adolescents with aligned ambitions are more likely to select a path or construct a life plan that enhances their chances of reaching their occupational goals. Life plans are important for transforming ambitions from a dream to an everyday goal. Such plans vary in form, however. We have found that life plans that are coherent with detail and realism are especially useful for choosing a path that increases the probability of success in adulthood.
As to my audience (Parents, High school students) I want articulate the certainties of college assessment. I think students should be aware of college behavior and mistakes that are made that can alter the future education. I feel as the more students are aware, the percentages of failure will reduce maybe even go extinct.
