This is it, the end of college. Shit. I mean, hooray!

“I should ask them for a ride,” said the girl from my class as we were walking out of the building. She was talking about a pickup truck stopped at the stoplight  with 4 rowdy college boys in the bed of it–no tailgate. I laughed. (It’s one of the first nice days after dealing with yucky winter, so as you can see people were celebrating.) Then the next moment she is running across the street to really ask them for a ride! After a little budging, 3 guys inside open the doors and let her jump in. I laugh again in disbelief–mostly at the fact that she literally just jumped into a truck full of people she doesn’t know. (Now I know you may be thinking that a girl getting into a car full of strange guys isn’t the smartest, but keep in mind that this happened in broad daylight and Spartans tend to generally see the good in people.) 

After the light turned red again, I crossed the street and preceded to walk to my bus stop across campus. Along the way I couldn’t but help but think about that girl. Not that what she did was a bad or dangerous decision, but that I wish I could be as spontaneous as that. I would never do something that crazy and out of the blue. I mean, I do do spontaneous things sometimes, but never have I decided something that quick! That truck was waiting for the light to turn green. When I saw them, my only thought was “haha that’s funny.” While, this girl was already thinking about running over and asking them for a ride!

 

Lately, I have been searching for some inspiration.  Finishing up my last semester of college has got me seriously freaking out about the fucking future. I’m graduating from a Big 10 University, and I STILL don’t know what I want to do when I grow up. My plan was to have this figured out by now. It’s only been this last year that I have actually begun to enjoy my major. So, what should I do?

No idea here.

So. That is why I am searching for some inspiration. I need to find out what makes me excited about life. What makes me passionate. I have began to feel a lot of inspiration and passion for a business of mine, but I’m looking for even more. I’m looking for a  new mindset, and a happy balance in life. I know whatever journey I am about to embark on is not going to be easy. The lost and wandering college grad doesn’t get it’s bad rep from nothing. But, I’m actually excited about this part of my life. Now, that statement might totally bite me in the ass here soon, but I’m keeping an open mind.

So, back to the girl who jumped in the truck. She reminded me that life is about living! I gotta get out there! Too often I find myself cooped up not taking any risks. AND I’M SO BORED. Not to say that my life is boring, but I am bored with doing the same ol shit sometimes. I’m craving something brand spankin new, even if it scares the poop out of me.

Netflix, it’s been real. But I’ve gotta cut down our chill time. It’s not you, you’re great. Seriously, great. It’s me…

 

YOU are Your Biggest Enemy

As cliche as it sounds, it’s true. You are your biggest enemy. 

“UH OH!”

You are going to be put through this test multiple times in your life, and you are going to see that you will probably respond differently each time. As you experience new things, you as an intelligence grows. You will naturally learn how to react to an experience.

“Focus on this moment, and nothing else. You in this moment are fine. Everything is perfect. Breath in, breath out. “

Now, after this point, you should react. Give it a try. I think you’ll be surprised with what you find happens.

The hardest part of being part of the success industry is getting out of your comfort zone. This is THEE HARDEST THING. If you can overcome this, you will find success. I know it. Now, the key is to push yourself to your best, to obtain the greatest success. If your limits aren’t being stretched as far as they can, you are HOLDING YOURSELF BACK! This is self destruction. 

Open your mind. Allow your physical self to experience new things so your mind can grow. I’m tellin’ you guys, THIS concept is pure gold. 

Imagine this with me: There is an open field. You are at one end, and success is at the other end. But between you and success, there is a small barbed wired fence. It’s relatively low to the ground, and doesn’t present fatal danger. Now, wouldn’t you find a way to get over that fence?!
