Lessons They Will Never Teach You in School

  • There’s more than one path in life                                                                                                               We often forget that life has many different paths for us. In school we are taught that there is one way and one way only to be successful but the truth is success can be define many different ways.
  • School doesn’t prepare you for real life                                                                                                        Preparation for the “real world” is crucial for future professions, for the last 14 years of going to school all I have been doing is memorizing a bunch of facts that have been pointless to my future. The school system is missing the key to success in life and that is the skills needed to survive the big world in which we are only insignificant grain to.
  • No one in the real world cares about your GPA                                                                                            Its true the “real world” could care less what your grade point average was in high school, You were top ten? Who cares…
  • Failing isn’t always a bad thing                                                                                                                       I can’t emphasis how important this one is to all the students out there. We have been brainwashed to thinking failing is unacceptable but in all honesty failing is a way of life and it motivates others to push forward and grow from their past experience.
  • Stop aiming for perfection                                                                                                                               I know way too much people who have tried to be “perfect” but the funny thing is there is no such thing as perfect in the “real world,” so stop diagnosing yourself as a “perfectionist.”
  • You’ll never be good at everything                                                                                                                Again, with the whole being good at everything, but in reality the only thing you can be good at is in the things you put your effort in.
  • Your health is your most important resource                                                                                                   I learned this the hard way. There’s not much to say other than your health is your #1 priority no matter what comes in the way, your health is never something to play with.
  • All work and no play makes you a dull person                                                                                              For god sake life is too short to always work, there is time for study and there is also a time to have fun. As humans we are built to handle stress but there is a point were our body needs to just relax. Listen to what your body is telling you and if you need to just go out and have fun.
  •  Going to bed early                                                                                                                                There’s no shame in going to sleep at 9 PM. Life gets crazier as we get older so the best time to sleep early is now, trust me its trending #sleepearly
  • Surround yourself with inspiring people                                                                                                        The people you surround yourself really say a lot about you as a person. I found from my own personal experience that being around people who achieve for big things inspire me to dream big. Never settle for less when it comes to your friends its like making investment, so choose wisely, like my mom used to say, “You can’t choose your family but you CAN choose your friends.”
