Whenever I see a group of college students that are about to graduate, I can’t help but to think, “Wow, how did those people do that?” Each time we gather and celebrate as a whole college, acknowledgements are being given to those graduating students. When I look at them, it’s like they’re so great.
I once tried to think about it. How did those people do that? Little that I know that I already have the answer: I just don’t realize it.
Think of your life as a college student. Collect every detail that you can think of. Now try to compare it with some graduating students. If you’ll say that there are way too many differences, I would say that it’s a given.
But perhaps you haven’t realized something. College students have something in common, be it graduating or undergrad. You know what it is?
Every step a student takes leads him/her to a new life. It’s an undeniable fact. Everything you do at school has an impact on your life. You might trip, step on dung, fall on a hole, or worse, be eaten by a quicksand. Everything depends on you: your abilities, how you use those abilities, and the way you decide for your life.
Everything you do at school, no matter how big or small it is will definitely be connected to your future. So look forward and walk. But do not forget to check the ground if there are potential risks of anything unpleasant.
