5.1. To become successful one must become involved. There are many resources we can use but they are all useless if we do not use them. One example would be the use campus resources. We are asked to participate in weekly discussions in order to become involved, this may seem a bit tedious but we must understand that a persons actions are influenced by the individual and his environment. By becoming involved we are integrating ourselves in a group of people with a common goal, thus pushing us towards our personal success.
