    Not sure about you guys, but until this day I know nobody that has solely been happy due to having good grades or good achievements in sport etc - I think happiness stems from the people around you and your enviornment; importantly, family, friends etc.

    I consider academic success, sport, etc as add ons.
    I agree totally. I used to be really good academically, have an ok social life and be reasonable at several sports. Then I let the academic slide but have a a better social life (maybe because I can get in pubs/clubs now :cool: ) and steadily improved at sports. To demonstrate, at my school we used to have achievement awards to point out excellence in various areas throughtout the year...
    Year 7: Maths (double award), French, Science (double award), Geography, History
    Year 11: P.E. (double award), Sporting Achievement (double award)

    That's not to say I don't think you can have it all, it's just better to get a decent balance and therefore keeping your options open. Luckily I'm on target for good AS grades (hopefully) and still get to play sport to as high a level as I can without it invading on my social life...Work hard, play hard I say.

    Do you know they have everything? Do you know for a fact? I've never meant anyone who really had everything.

    Do you believe this is possible and do you know anyone that has managed to do a similar plan?

    The 'Excel in Everything' plan is the ultimate lifestyle regime... in which you do your best in everything.

    I mean: the highest academic standards in tests and homework in school;the best social life you can possibly live; high levels of fitness and achievement in sport and the list goes on, but you understand the idea. Yes?

    I may take up this task but what are your opinions on this.

    Im sure in ur World it would...... :rolleyes:

    Surely it boils down to being happy - if you're happy with what you've got, then you must have everything (at least everything you want).
