Maybe you should settle for another letter in the Alphabet for once you’re at the top of the class much more is expected of thee. B,C, and definitely D’s get to slide by while you will continue to have to work your derriere off till it hurts. Don’t get me wrong it’s great to achieve excellence but once that occurs they expect it to occur throughout your life. The D+ student is scene as a hero when a C+ appears but the A+ plus student gets a frown when an A- appears and don’t even mention the B. In other words greatness is great but sometimes being okay can have some true advantages one which is lower expectations bring easier rewards.
