In life, C students succeeds better than the “efiko” and geeky A students because of the psychological theory of Compensation Learning. YOU SHOULD BE AT AN ADVANTAGE BECAUSE OF YOUR DISADVANTAGE. In the words of Kanye “everything you’re not makes you everything you are”..
Just like a blind man can hear better than you, most successful people broke through because they had to learn and get better at something else, since they didn’t have what others had.
Warren Buffet at 14 was concentrating more on accumulating over 400 acres of farmland that he later leased to his “A” grade classmates. That’s why you went to school, read (or cheated) to get good grades so that your “street-smart” boss can employ you to work your life away!
School and your regular theory is failing. There are more practical concepts to succeed…in this age and day, uncertainty is the only thing to be sure of. But there are certain steps, opportunities , principles and people that can help increase your chances.
