I happened to read a Facebook comment from a young student who just joined the engineering course saying that they are going to have ton’s of fun during their college life. Naturally he got so many likes and comments supporting him from his fellow students and others. I felt compelled to write this blog on this topic. There is no doubt or denying the fact that we should enjoy to the full extent during student life. It is the most memorable and fun time of our life. But “100% love” towards just fun, whiling away time, during college life or you have a balanced approach to fun, education and core skills to become a “Darling” for your parents, friends, society is what you have to decide.
Time flies just like that. When you look back to your past after your college life you should not repent the missed opportunities or missed time that otherwise would have helped you to reach your goals and made you feel proud.
John lenon(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beautiful_Boy_(Darling_Boy) a singer once wrote, “Life is what happens while you’re busy making other plans.” (in many cases having fun). It is easy to be busy with many things during the day. Most of us always think about future. We act based on that and there is nothing wrong in that but it is easy to get distracted from greater goals we set for ourselves. Many a times we come across some good ideas or opportunities, seminars, lectures to help us reach our goals but we tend to ignore them for the sake of fun or may postpone the decision of doing something for betterment, for later years. That becomes a costly mistake.
Many students I know are now repenting that they did not acquire the skills needed for them to get a job. I took classes to hundreds of such unemployed youth preparing them with necessary corporate (employable skills). It is a costly mistake to pay for the rest of your life if you are forced to work in a company that you don’t like. Your goals and doing what you love to do for the rest of life is very valuable and life long fun and fulfillment.
It is easy to get caught up in distractions during the day-to-day life at college or work. At least once in six months or once a year though, it is important to look back on what you learned new or whether you are equipping yourselves to reach your life goals. If you find that you have not accomplished much in the past year remind yourselves that you are going to work more hard this year to achieve your goals. Otherwise you are next in line as millions of unemployed youth waiting for help from somebody to lift thme up.
So you decide. If you are Sincere, hard working and smart you can control your Fate and God will help you in that matter.
Choice 1. 100% enjoyment in college life and a failure rest of the LIFE.
Choice 2. Enjoyment + Learn new skills other than college education + your engineering subjects but with 100% dedication everyday. Success and happiness for the rest of the life.
You decide your future. It’s your life. It’s in your hands.
Here are some thought provoking questions to ask your selves.
Are you planning for your career goals?
Do you really want to make a mark of yourselves or live somebody’s life?
Do you have the courage, skills to achieve more than what you can imagine now?
Think of the founders of these companies. They are all students when they started their glorious journey of success and are now having a blast (having fun) for rest of the life. GOOGLE, Facebook, Instagram, redbus.in(http://www.redbus.in/)
to name a few.
