Motivation Monday: Don’t be Afraid of Graduation!

Quote: “Courage is resistance to fear, the mastery of fear, not the absence of fear.” Mark Twain

It’s been almost a month since graduation!

Post-graduation Jitters
The reality of post-grad life is finally setting in – maybe you’ve moved back with your parents until you can get on your feet, maybe your friends from school are all going their separate ways, or maybe you’re just anxious about what comes next – but the heart of the matter is that early post-grad life sort of sucks.

A lot of people let that go to their heads and slide into inactivity and laziness. We know it’s daunting – how could it not be? The last 18 years of your life have been dedicated to education, and now you suddenly need to find a job and an apartment and get your life going, all at once. It’s scary, and some people get so scared they do nothing at all.

But put down those Doritos, turn off those non-stop Netflix playbacks of whatever terrible sitcom you’ve been binge-watching, and sit up straight!

Get out there and conquer!
You can do this! You can’t stop trying just because you’re afraid. Everyone’s afraid when they first start out. That’s okay. Just don’t let it beat you – keep moving forward! It might take a while to find a job, or an apartment, but you have no excuse to stop trying!

If you’re having trouble we have lots of articles to help, not to mention hundreds of job postings here on our website, and we believe you can do it.

Your time in school was just the prologue. This is the book! You should be excited! The whole world is open, you can do anything you want to do – go anywhere you want to go! It’s okay to be afraid; remember – “Courage is resistance to fear, the mastery of fear, not the absence of fear.”

So don’t bury your fear – conquer it! Go out and live your life!
