Yes, what is the most important thing in passing the GED? It is your belief that you can pass the GED.
Belief is Critical in the Learning Process
I’ve taught 10,000 adults how to use computers. I’ve seen just about everything in teaching people how to use Microsoft Windows, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access, Outlook, and more.
The key factor in people learning is the belief and thirst for learning.
Do you Believe you can Pass the GED?
If the answer is “yes”, you can do it.
If you walk into a GED class believing you can not pass the GED, you succeed: at failing the GED.
When Belief in Learning meets a Thirst for Learning
For years I wanted to learn the Morse Code. That’s the old way of communicating with dahs and dits developed by Samuel Morse in the 1830’s. It was designed for telegraphs.
…xxx… That mean’s SOS. Save our Ship. It’s an emergency signal in Morse Code.
I always wanted to learn the Morse Code. I just was too busy. I believed I could learn the morse code, I just never had a THIRST for learning the morse code.

I carry around a morse code cheat sheet with me and learn a letter if I’m waiting in the car or driving around. Yesterday while waiting at Chicago’s Union Station I learned the letter B: x…
So when your belief in passing the GED becomes a thirst for passing the GED, you will be unstoppable.
How will you know when your belief in passing the GED is fueled by a thirst to pass the GED?
If you start carrying a GED study manual with you on the train to work, that’s a sign your head’s in the right place.
When you’re no longer embarrassed to read a GED book at the factory lunch table, I bet you will pass the GED.
When you ask keep a notepad with you at all times with GED questions than belief has met your thirst for passing the GED.
I’m 61 years old and I learn new things every day?
What’s your excuse?
At age 60 I taught myself how to build and to use a WordPress website. That’s what you’re reading now.
At age 61 I am now learning Microsoft SharePoint. I’m green as grass but learn something about SharePoint every day.
The classic excuse is this:
I’m too old to pass the GED.
