During the transition from high school to college and living on your own, you must realize you are in control of your own life. This is a huge responsibility to learn at this stage of your life.
You have a choice each day whether you will be a victim of circumstances or if you will embrace the positive changes and deal the negatives. Just knowing you have a choice in how you react to the real world gives you the ultimate control over your situation.
Attending classes and making good grades are the best way you can take a stand and control your destiny. You could just sleep your way through and fail, and this will do you no good.
Remember you are on a mission. You want to be inspired, so you will want to get up and do the best you can. Now the grades count more than ever before. Choose to make the decision to exceed what you did in high school.
Research and read self-help books to help you be the best person you can be. Think in terms of inspirational messages. Look in the college library and look online for resources on self-help. Many websites and gurus are willing to offer tips and advice on achieving these goals.
Remember… Your happy life is an inside job,
