Everyone who moves around with a third class certificate
has the potentials to live a first-class life. This is what this
book is all about, learning to live a first class life with a third class certificate. I am not too bothered that you have failed
in school. My concern is how you can bounce back and become
someone to reckon with in life, even with your third-class
Truly you have failed, but this is not the worst of your failure.
You have failed several times before now, and have successfully
bounced back effortlessly. You may not remember this, but I do
The very first time you tried walking as a baby, you fell flat on
your face, not once, not twice, but you rose up again, and tried it a
few more times, until you learnt the act perfectly. Today, you
walk about without giving it a thought, as though you had never
failed in walking before.
The very first time you tried to swim, you almost drowned;
thanks to God for the lifesavers around you then, you would have
lost your life untimely and would have been buried and long
forgotten. Today, you swim as though it is a natural thing to do.
You can even dare a swimming competition, just because you are
sure of how good you are at it, without remembering you had
failed in it before.
The very first time you learnt to drive, with a big bold red color
letter 'L' on a white cardboard pasted both in front and at the back
of your car, you mistakenly matched the brake instead of the
clutch, took the turtle for the brake, and almost hit the wall, but
for your driving-lesson tutor beside you. You wondered then if
you would ever really know how to drive a car because of the
constant mistakes you were making during the driving lessons.
All those are stories now! You can drive fifty kilometers without
any difficulty. You are now an expert at driving, a skill you once
taught you would never know.
These are just a few of your numerous records of failures in
times past. However, you have been able to cross over from the
boundary of failure to the side of success in the same ventures
that sometimes ago seemed you really would not be able to find a
way around. The same factors that worked for you then, can still
work for you now, irrespective of who, or what is against you,
third-class degree notwithstanding!
It is not very unusual to fail in your first attempt at something.
Since this is your first attempt at getting an academic degree,
your failure is not something to kill yourself over. Do not worry
about this failure. You have not yet committed an unpardonable
sin by failing. You have bounced back at other times you failed
before now. So, I am very certain that you will bounce back this
time too, if you can only do the right thing.
This book, LIVING A FIRST-CLASS LIFE WITH A THIRDCLASS
RESULT, is not to blame you of your failure, but to let

you know that you can bounce back again, and teach you the
'how to', until you become the talk-of-the-town.
It is possible! You can still live a first-class life, even with your
third-class result, if you are willing to do what I am about to
show you. Others have done it before, and you also can.
