3. Don’t have ‘Attitude’: Some systems encourage students to develop an aggressive ‘tough guy’ attitude, to be feared. They confuse being feared with being respected. Having ‘attitude’ makes you stand out and is a magnet for trouble. True confidence is not cockiness. True confidence manifests itself in being humble and unassuming on the outside while being strong and resolute on the inside. And that will show in the way you carry yourself and be a deterrent to the predators. They prefer easier prey.
