Hi!

I’m Red-beard The Pirate and I’ve helped thousands of students get killer grades with my book (and I’m even talking about the procrastinators too.)

For $4.99 you can have top-off-the-class grades or it’s free. Want to know more?

We all get a little overwhelmed at times. Believe it or not, you’re probably not stupid. Even if you are, you could still do better than a genius with the right decisions. Image Source

I regularly get questions from students that don’t give themselves enough credit. This was a particularly depressing one that I got and shortened significantly for this post:

I just can’t ever seem to get my grades up. I try focusing more but I just can’t seem to get it. It all seems too tough. I’ve always been a little dumber than my classmates. I’m a little stupid. If I’m not studying for hours at a time then I straight up fail. Am I in a hopeless spot?
-Daniel (name was changed.)

Whenever someone insults their own intelligence I tend to believe they’re like the pretty girl talking about how ugly they are. They’re either crazy (we all get that way sometimes) or fishin’ for a compliment. It’s probably mostly insecurity.

Stupid people rarely know they’re stupid. When they do know that, it’s usually impossible to miss. Considering the email was not a grammatical and conceptual mess, I know the writer is full of s**t.

For the record, I’m only using the word stupid because it came up in the email. There are more polite words but they might not hit the nail on the head quite as clearly.

Intelligence is a factor. Some people are naturally gifted. Some people are naturally not so gifted. Beyond the extreme ends, this makes very little difference to a person’s success academically and in life. Plenty of low intelligence people get great grades. Plenty of high intelligence people get crap grades. There are way too many other factors playing a role in this.

Do not blame grades on your level of intelligence. That’s just taking a factor you have control over and blaming genetics for it. Now… I get it can be tough but shirking responsibility won’t help.

What’s The Real Problem

This is a email diagnosis so forgive me if it’s incorrect but after reading the email I feel like the problem is poking out a little. It may not be the case but it’s definitely worth considering.

If school has been a struggle for as long as you make it sound then it’s likely you’re running into the wall of having to catch up on previous problems. Missing (or even not paying attention during) a few vital weeks in school could end up having consequences until you find those missing pieces.

(I didn’t post part of the email where a few relevant factors were mentioned.)

Finding where you need this help is challenging. There is really no quick way to do this. I’d recommend getting a tutor to help. I’m not a major fan of tutoring in most situations but when a student is missing something important it can take individualized attention to diagnose accurately. They can see the areas where you make mistakes and help correct those spots.

Where Else It Could Be

Confidence is a huge factor in a person’s ability to learn. There is no way around it. A person that thinks they’re good at learning will do better than a person that thinks they suck at it. There are a lot of factors that can come into play with this factor. Ultimately though, you have to decide how you choose to think about yourself daily.

I can’t tell you what the problem is with any level of confidence but I’d be willing to bet the problem is not your level of intelligence.

Do you want to know how to study in less than 15 minutes a night? That’s what this blog is all about. Be sure to follow along to get all the details. Also, check out the ebooks in the sidebar for more details.

Q/A – What To Do When You’re Stupid?

A B&C Students Guide To Mercilessly Crushing A Students At Their Own Game (While Laughing Your Way Towards The Ivy-League)

Are you smart but getting meh grades?

The smartest students are often the ones the school system leaves behind. It’s easy to motivate a half-wit (or even almost-wit – like a horse with a carrot dangled in it’s face to get it running. Giddy-up horsey!

You would never fall for that, right? Then this is for you.

It’s easy to procrastinate when you’re getting a raw deal. That’s the smart thing to do.

Academics is a game – and its prizes are good. Really good! There is more to the story than that though. What do you have to do to get that prize? And that matters even more than the prize. Study 18 hours a day for straight-A’s and a high-paying job someday in the distant future? Ughhh… Not me. That’s for sure.

I scored near the top of my college Engineering class while studying less than 15 minutes a morning. And seriously, I don’t sound like a super genius, do I?

Hint: I had barely scraped a 1.0 GPA in high school and I wasn’t skipping and having fun with friends either – I was… dare I say… trying my best.

Big Tip: trying doesn’t matter unless you’re experimenting or already using an effective strategy. Trying without an effective strategies is a waste that can plop your grades in the stinker. First step – STOP TRYING with ineffective strategies.

You got that?

Look… I’m a bit crazy. I get it. I’ve read hundreds of books on grades, learning, and memory. I spent sleepless nights studying obscure academic journals. I swear, I even read the book “How To Read A Book” and didn’t have to drink alcohol to do it!

WHY DO I DO THIS TO MYSELF!?

You wanna’ know why?

Don’t tell anyone but… I care. I was emotionally crippled by the school system. I had heartless, lazy, and downright mean teachers (and a couple good ones that couldn’t help.) It took years for me to untangle their mess…

And I went to college and beat them at their own wretched game. Top scores. Easy studying. Time to make friends and impress the ladies. (You know… the important stuff!)

But I know… I wasn’t alone and I know there are others facing similar and worse challenges than I did. And I may be out of the warzone now but I can’t in good conscience leave you behind without my arsenal.

That’s why a decade ago I founded Smart Student Secrets and got link backs from LifeHack, HuffPo, and good college professors with names I can’t pronounce from all over the world that see these strategies crushing every day. But forget about them… the emails I get from grateful students… that’s the stuff a good life is made of.

My newest book is, in my opinion, the best book ever written for students that want to absolutely crush the academic game.

It gets you to focus your energy on the most important aspects of grades – giving you leverage on the system.

It shows you the big painful studying, you’re not benefiting from – that you thankfully get to stop today and forever.

It takes the latest in academic research on memory and puts into your hands, the exact memorization strategies that a Purdue Professor proved can let someone memorize 2.35 things for every one they’re memorizing now.

And this isn’t about “working harder” – and it’s not about “working smarter” either. (I cringe every time I read that phrase.)

It’s about working only when it matters most and creating the habit of motivated and effective learning.

I guarantee this… You can skyrocket your grades with my book while studying less than you ever had to study before. If I’m wrong, send me an email and I’ll refund you – no questions asked.

Please give me the chance to change your life for the better – it’s on me to prove it. What you’re going to do is: click on the link here or below, click “Buy Now”, fill in the boxes, and you’ll get your copy of the book through an instant download.

Warning: Inflation is eating my butt right now. My accountant is saying the prices need to go up to keep up with server costs ASAP or this whole site is in danger. I’m writing this one last message as a last ditch effort to get this book to anyone that wants it. If you want it, do it now while the guarantee and price are still available. You will have it for when you’re ready to start.

Last chance! Don’t miss it at the lowest price and best guarantee I can do.
