One of the more popular songs at this years Calypso Finals, is a song by the reigning calypso monarch the Hunter called â€œSucceed.â€ The song basically speaks about how girls are succeeding more at school than boys. And itâ€™s a fact; girls are doing much better at tertiary level than boys. Why boys are not succeeding in school? There are a million and one reasons – too long for this post, but at this rate weâ€™re going girls will be occupying all the managerial positions; if theyâ€™re not already.
Not to long ago I came across this article which spoke about –The Secret of Success in Eight Words, which I found to be true. But when I thought about it, most of the values to be successful are non-existent in boys and the majority for Dominican men today. It doesnâ€™t matter at what stage youâ€™re in your life; to be successful you must know the values of success.

Assholes – excuse me!
