Yes many people around me too dont like to study but they dont motivate me not to study. Studies is very important for a person to be in good status.

When I was young and in school the only things I really studied were subjects that interested me. When you first start out, grades 1-6, you need to take the basic courses, reading, writing, arithmetic, etc. I think that once you reach 7th grade you should either be placed in courses that you excel in or have high interest in. I was never able to concentrate well enough to study hard those subjects that I was not interested in. I absolutely hated math. I loved history so did well in that. Anything to do with medicine interested me. I think that each individual child should be looked at separately and their education and classes planned according to where they excel and what their interests are. If you have the capability and maturity to study and learn all you can, then I would not pay attention to those persons around you who don't. It is your life. You have to live with yourself and your future. You may have goals for success in life where as these others may not want to do anything but "party" or waste their precious school years. Be a leader, not a follower. Do what your heart and mind tells you. You will excel and most probably have a better life ahead than those who do not study and who waste their time.

I had left the school already and so whether to study or not is my own business. Now, if you are still in the school, please take my advice, STUDY HARD! It is not that studying hard will guarantee a good life onwards or it will guarantee you a job with very high payroll. But if you hunt for a job, having higher qualification gives you an edge over others. I mean if I am going to employ someone, I will definitely bet on a guy graduated from the university rather than one only out of school. Graduating from the university doesn't mean he is necessarily better but at least he has proved himself as capable of going through the pressure of studying in university and at least he manages all the exams. As an employer, I can't really know all candidates that deep to decide who to hire so I can only place a bet. A bet on a university graduates is going to give better reward.
