Reading this motivated me and I hope it does the same for you. You no longer have to settle. By going to college you can now build a PALACE :-). Think about it. You were limited by what you could do without a degree and you had to settle for those limitations. Now you can create a whole new destiny. Isn’t that exciting!
You no long have to remain in a rut and always think of the “What ifs” or “Had I only.” Those are past tense now. Getting your degree is going to take you higher than you ever dreamed possible. You are building your future on a solid foundation instead of grains of sand.
Don’t take your education for granted. Don’t just get by. Shoot for the stars, work hard for those grades, become an honor student, be PROUD! Work hard for those honor societies. You must remember that it shows future or current employers how hard you are willing to work. Especially in todays job market, you want to stand out. You want a potential employer to say “Wow, this person is dynamic!”
Your resume is your palace, build it to be OUTSTANDING & STRONG! Think about how many people you may be competing with, if you build a palace then there is no competition right? 🙂
When you are sitting in class and you are exhausted or frustrated, take a deep breath and visualize your future. Do not ever forget your dreams as they will keep you going. The more successes you experience, the more driven you will become.
My alma mater saying is “ONLY THE DRIVEN.” That is
