Graduation- A Time For New Choices:  Status Quo or New Horizons

So, we are now winding down from the season of graduation…..bridging…..next steps for our kids…….

  •             Graduation from college
  •             Graduation from high school
  •             Bridging to high school

(a perspective…..now is the time to focus on who you are and what your innate capabilities are……)

I have participated in these events personally and vicariously through social media.  I have witnessed accolades from doting parents, sisters/brothers, aunties/uncles…..and cousins……yelping…..that’s my baby…. My brain has been all over the place in terms of what these recent graduates will now be facing, in terms of …….new life decisions……..how will they transfer their learning from one stage of life to the next……how they will seize opportunities…….how they will balance life and living……if and how school will be involved…..and whether they have truly thought through at least the next four years of life…..(which can easily become five, eight, or ten years) depending upon how concrete the plans are or the path…..(a perspective…..progress based on your plans and not of your friends, classmates, and other “perceptions” of success…….) and as equally important, how your career decisions are influenced………

Milestones are important…….understanding personal aspirations create the foundation for those milestones…..manifestation of “dreams” are individual…….understanding you, innately, are critical to successfully realizing your dreams………

Yes, this post is about insight into realizing your dreams……..And just as important, what thought is given in terms of what influences career decisions…….sports role models…….entertainment role models…..(doctors, lawyers, or executives), what your parents did to make a living……what teacher you admired…….family traditions…….becoming an entrepreneur……and your personal comfort level with the concept of “going for it”.

All of these influences are worthy of consideration.  (a perspective……at the end of the day, you will have to live the level of success that you aspire to).  (a perspective……understand how your gifts, talents, and innate abilities will and should influence your  career.)

What are your plans?
