Success is something most people want to achieve, but is it something you are born with? Astrologists have numerous recommendations on what to do in order to be successful, but is it really up to your zodiac sign? If we were to mention a few people born in the month of September, you might be surprised at how successful they actually are. A recent study actually reveals that September babies are not only smart, but are also pretty darn successful.
According to the new research from the University of Toronto, the University of Florida and Northwestern University, early autumn babies are much more likely to succeed in life in general.
The research team examined over a million school kids born in Florida between 1994 and 2000. They found astonishing differences between September and August-born babies. The study, entitled School Starting Age and Cognitive Development, explains how their older age upon starting school gives September students a notable advantage. Actually, being a slightly older age at school entry increases children’s college attainment and reduces the likelihood of being incarcerated for juvenile crime. Additionally, these kids will have a stronger sense of confidence than their younger peers.
As a matter of fact, less developed August babies tend to be less mature on their first day of school. This leads to them receiving less positive reinforcement for their academic achievements, and less self-confidence as well. It goes beyond ABCs and it could possibly affect these people’s chances of going to university.

It turns out not everyone is as lucky as September-born babies. They don’t need to work as hard to be successful after all.
But, hey summer babies, don’t lose faith! Work hard and you will succeed, too!
