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
Here we go, gearing up for the FINALS! I was thinking about this and I reminisced about how nice it was to be in elementary school because there we NO FINALS! Just playing and having fun! 🙂 WHY CAN’T IT BE LIKE THAT NOW! 🙂
FINALS~ that word sounds so harsh. This is your FINAL chance to prove you learned something. Whew, what pressure. BUT…….Then again, if you did all you were supposed to do during the first 11 weeks of class, it should be a breeze right? Right?
We put so much pressure on ourselves during exams. It’s almost like we don’t trust ourselves. That we don’t believe that we know the material. That the earth is going to open up and swallow us whole for one exam. Think about that.
I do the same thing. I sweat and stress and drive myself crazy during finals. Maybe they ought to change the word from FINALS to ALMOST TIME TO PARTY! 🙂
You have done everything you are going to do and everything that you can do. It is what it is at this point. Just imagine what you will be doing a week later. Maybe relaxing, getting caught up on family/friend time. Finals will be a distant memory then. It will be time to focus on the next leg of your journey. That may be GRADUATION!~~ It may be focusing on the next quarter of classes, or a new job prospect. THERE IS LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL. Did I just say that? LOL.
Clear your mind, do your meditation, breathe and TRUST IN YOURSELF!
Good Luck, YOU WILL DO GREAT!
