One of the greatest assets that have been given to everyone evenly is time. What you do with it determines your level of success and fulfillment.
Know this, for everything in life, there is a time. A time to gain admission and a time to graduate. Just yesterday you were putting on your matriculation gown; tomorrow it will be your convocation gown.
As a matter of fact, The world is amazingly changing at the speed of light. If you would not change at least with the speed of sound, then you will miss so many things in life.
It is what you have in your head before graduation that will take you ahead after graduation. A student that knows nothing is a student that is not noted. You should know the following things before you graduate:
THINGS TO KNOW BEFORE GRADUATION
1. KNOW WHO YOU ARE
Take 5 Seconds and ask yourself: Am I growing or I am just growing old? Since you are no longer a kid, before graduation, you should know who you are and whom you are not.
Don’t wait for people to tell you; because they would give you the wrong identity. You should have values that you stand for. If you don’t stand for anything, you will fall for everything. Don’t just do things because others are doing it. You don’t have a mate even if you are twin. It is time to embark on the journey of self discovery.
2. KNOW THAT YOU ARE UNIQUE
Can you remember the last time that someone said to you “You are different”? It doesn’t make sense when you start comparing yourself with others. Fake is very expensive to maintain.
The most amazing thing to be in the world is you. The worst loneliness you can have is for you not to be comfortable with yourself. As a matter of fact, there is no one like you. Know yourself and be yourself.
3. UNDERSTAND THE PLACE OF SELF EDUCATION
Formal education gives you class, and may earn you a living, but self education makes you a fortune. Your “A” in class may not help you in the real world; but your skills will.
Develop yourself, study to understand things about life. What have you thought yourself so far? If what you were taught in class is taken away, what will you be left with?
4. USE YOUR THIRD EYE
Even as you attend classes and prepare for exams, try to project your eyes into the future. If you don’t know where you are going in life, you will never get there.
Your eyes are for vision, but not only to watch television. The future you don’t prepare for will shock you when you get there.
5. YOUR HANDS SHOULD WORK
Don’t graduate empty; learn skills. There are so many skills you can lean. Your worth in life is tied to the quality use of your hands. Where do you produce good results without stress?
Your shape may attract people, but your skill is your actual selling point.
6. HARD-WORK DOESN’T KILL
Hardwork gives you sense of pride and responsibility. Don’t be lazy and expect to be great because, even your greatness uses your work as a platform for self expression.
To get juice, the orange must be subjected to pressure. Get ready for work! work!! work!!!.
7. HAVE A SAVING HABIT
For you to harvest, you must first invest. Don’t waste your money on irrelevant things. Invest in your future so that it can deliver something to you.
8. ENJOY LIFE
It is good to be a very serious student, but learn to enjoy yourself once in a while. Hang out with friends, engage in exercises. Just have fun. In addition, make yourself happy.
You need a contact; not contacts. How many of your friends can you call for help if you have issues now? It’s time to start connecting with people that are relevant to your destiny.
10. DON’T WASTE TIME
Life is not a game; in a game there is extra-time but in life there is no extra time. Put your time to maximum use. What is the most valuable use of your time right now?
