Hip Hop Affirmation of the Day#146
“I WANNA GO TO COLLEGE FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE.” ~Asher Roth (I Love College)
Affirmation of the Day: I continue to learn as long as I am alive.
Taking my West coast tour of colleges Stanford, Santa Clara University and San Jose State I had a chance to introduce myself to administrators as well as students. One common theme that I have run into with students is the fear of moving on beyond college. College provides a good structure that tells you how you can be successful. It also teaches you all the things you need to know to be independent. Starting college and moving out of your childhood home is usually the first time in your life where you have had to do things by yourself. No parents waking you up at the crack of dawn so you’re not late for your lessons. No home-cooked meals waiting for you when you walk through the door after a hard day. College is where you have to start doing these things for yourself, and that’s regardless of whether you have moved into a dorm or one of the student houses that you’ve found via somewhere like Aplusstudenthousing.com. As hard as this transition is, it’s the first step to learning how to be successful, as well as independent. In the “real world” it’s not always that clear-cut. There are many paths that you can choose and still reach success. For a college student getting ready to graduate or just graduating the thought of making the “right” move can be paralyzing. If you’re a college student reading this message, then make sure you enjoy the process and know that the point of college is to teach you how to learn for the rest of your life. That means you can experiment and make changes because you will adapt thanks to your marvelous critical thinking skills. If you are past the College stage and you are reading this post, please reach out to someone younger than yourself and share your life story and how you made it through the tough times.
Question of the Day: What do you need to give up so you can move up?
Action of the Day: Continue to learn and live for the enjoyment of the journey.
Run the Point from where you are, with what you have!
