College life is the very foundation of your future. It is the most memorable years of your life as well. The 3 to 5 years that you spend in college are of paramount importance as whatever you do in these years is going to decide the quality of your future life. Hence you must know how to utilize the time as well as the opportunities to your best if you want your future to be peaceful as well as successful.
Your past is lost. Whether you were successful or not. It is similar to a cancelled cheque, so do not bother about your past, and your present is cash in hand, your future is going to be the way you handle the cash in hand. The choice is yours, and if you are clever to utilise it for building the necessary skills, nobody can prevent you from succeeding.
I am going to reveal a few points that will help you ace the opportunities in your college life.
(1)AVOID YOUR INHIBITIONS
Never, ever have any inhibition in your mind to participate. Never develop an inferiority complex on any basis. My dear students, always keep in mind, that ups and downs in life are quite normal, and we cannot avoid or foresee them. But the present is of course in your hands. Just get rid of all negative thoughts, and always think positive.
(2)BEGIN EACH DAY WITH A POSITIVE THOUGHT
Start your day with a positive thought. Be happy with what you have. Lead a contented life, because life is full of uncertainties. Don’t try to imitate others and never compare with others' life.
Positivity makes it easier to achieve your goals. That’s because when you’re in a positive frame of mind, you can make better decisions. You can look ahead and plot a course, rather than just reacting to the setbacks you encounter. You don’t get stuck with negative self-talk. Here are 5 reminders about the importance of a positive attitude for students.
Of course, being positive and taking a risk doesn’t mean everything will turn out the way we might have hoped. Students who learn from their mistakes can still focus on the positive side of things. Maintain a positive outlook, and appreciate the valuable lessons and wisdom and students can share those experiences as well.
(3)DON’T GET AFFECTED BY OTHERS OPINION
Never bother about, what others will think of you. It is none of your business. You just have to concentrate on what you can do to succeed in your life. Nobody always keeps thinking of others. And if at all it happens, you cannot do anything for that. And bear in mind, whenever you try doing something good, you will have at least a few WHO will criticize YOU, and a very few who will motivate and inspire you. Just neglect the critics, and be happy about the motivation you receive from the few. Life is very short, and we cannot afford to waste time unnecessarily. You should try to understand, what is more, important in life, and what is not. Never bother or worry about anything unimportant to you.
(4)MAKE YOUR PARENTS HAPPY AND PROUD OF YOUR ACHIEVEMENTS
Whenever you have such thoughts, think of your parents, their dreams for you, the hardships they suffer, and the sacrifices they do to bring you up in life. Always keep yourself well-motivated, dream big, visualize your dreams, every day, imagine that you reach your goals and then plan to work towards that goal, work with determination, with a burning desire to achieve that, and believe me if you follow all the above with confidence, one day you will be considered a role model for many.
(5)MAKE HARD WORK YOUR WEAPON FOR SUCCESS
My dear friends, the hardworking one never fails. And remember there is no substitute for hard work. If one aspires to achieve great success, one has to work untiringly towards the goal with enthusiasm and involvement. Never waste your time on calculating the outcomes. If one does his duty, definitely the almighty will take care of the rest. You might have come across the sayings
“Do your best, God will do the rest”
(6)MAKE PUNCTUALITY AND SINCERITY YOUR IDENTITY
The next trait you should develop is punctuality. A punctual person will be remembered forever as this is a very rare quality, very few of humanity possess this trait.
(7)BE KNOWN FOR YOUR GOOD QUALITIES WHEREVER YOU ARE
what I would like to reflect is that many of you may be just starting your career, or maybe a few years you have been working. But whatever stage you are in, just keep in mind, that you need to follow certain good qualities, that you will be known for…………. wherever you are. Once you join an organization, never compare the returns that you get with others, stay there for a reasonable number of years, learn things, wait patiently to get promoted then you have to decide. But before expecting a hike make yourself eligible for that, by being punctual from day one and always, be sincere in whatever you do even if it is a simple task. Do it as beautifully as possible, accept responsibilities, and be committed to fulfilling your duty. If you follow this, your promotions and up-gradation will automatically arrive at your doorstep, if not in the same organization, but somebody else will knock on your doors, to give you a hike. This is very true and has been proved by many.
