#AdultingisREAL: What are the things we need to know in life after college?

Nowadays, considering the tremendous seemingly unconquerable obstacle of life and society awaiting you being a fresh college graduates can really be horrendous and intimidating. This is the significant turning point in your life, where the relationship and connection you build, the skills you nourish and how much you learn from your adolescent decision in life will now play a big position in what kind of job you will pursue.

Most of the college graduates are tend to be overwrought and agitated because they already reached the finish line of being a student. No more cramming for exams, hectic schedules and overloaded paper works. But even the most susceptible grads can have a hard time acclimating and adapting to change from student life to dealing with repudiation on applying a job, and maintaining optimistic attitudes behind those tough challenge of the society.

As the world we live in is so unpredictable, the ability to learn and to adapt to change is the key for us to survive. And in order for us to outlast in the demanding society we are right now, we need to know the indispensable lists to consider in living life after college.  

“Have a goals, focus on it!”

From being a student to fresh grad: Weekly-allowance no more, you are on a tight budget and deprived the luxury things of getting what you want. But don’t feel anxious and stress this chapter is a process that won’t last long as long as you remember to be sagacious with your every finances. Setting goals is the first step in turning the invisible into the visible. Don’t be afraid to plan things right! People with goals succeed because they know where they’re going. Decades from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. The only discipline that lasts is self-discipline. With self-discipline, most anything is possible.  

“Happy work, happy life”

Embrace the career you desire, and you will never feel that you are working a whole day in your life.  Your work is going to fill a large portion of your life, and the only way to be certainly satisfied is to befit what you believe is great work. And the only key in creating masterpiece is to love what you do.  If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle because some of our important choices have a time line. Don’t hold back, if you delay a decision you can’t say what will happen next. The opportunity is gone forever.  As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it.

“Construct your own formula

If you hate Math, this is the time you need to love it.  If you’re saving, you’re succeeding.  Your target is to keep a savings. First, you should always pack your lunch for work. Not only will you save a ton of money, but it’s also a lot healthier at the same time you are helping the mother nature to conserve its environmental beauty.  Get into a budget habit. Think of a budget as a spending plan to guide your saving so you can have the things you really want and that really matter to you.  Have a “back-up fund” it is a must to hold an emergency savings, which are crucial protection from life’s unexpected and costly events.

“Be mindful, think before you spend”

Open a bank account. Build a financial foundation you need to figure out where you’ll be keeping your cash, check the financial status of the banking company you wanted to settled your money. It is important to be apprehensive of what’s coming in (salary or income), what’s going out (expenses) and what stays (savings).  By saving these funds early on, you’ll suddenly feel calmer about your ability to handle the unexpected.   The sooner you start savings, the better your future will be.  Be aware on what you spend. You have all the power to allocate your salary right. If money is spent in the wrong way, then ‘control’ the spending and if the money is spent in the right way, then ‘decontrol’ the spending. Focus not on what you earn, focus on how you spend what you earn.

“Practice setting-up long term goal”

Everything that you work on is worth a wait. Long-term goals usually take more than five years to reach. If they involve money, they need a disciplined saving and investing strategy. Prioritizing and setting financial goals allows you to develop a plan to accomplish them. Your goals can and will change in different stages of your life. All successful people are big dreamers and idealizer. They visualize what their future could be ideal in every aspect of life, and then they execute it every day toward their goal and aspiration. You should review and revise your plans at least once a year to make sure the methods and tools you’re using are aligned to help you meet your needs. It is important to be specific in setting up goals. It’s not bad to be ready about the future, have a combination of short- and long-term goals to balance.

“Have a break, Make some fun!”

This is the most important thing: Give yourself a rewards. Treat yourself and make some hang out with friends and cheers once you fully accomplished your work tasks. There’s nothing wrong about pampering yourself after a long tiring week of work. Burn out your stress make some shopping for a while, you really do deserve it.  As long as you’re having fun while working, don’t quit. Take a breath and relax. Life is unstable, we can’t tell what will the future may bring. Enjoy and make some fun. Sometimes happiness is getting home after a long day and just relaxing.  Rest and self-care are important. When you take time to replenish your spirit, it allows you to be productive again and start a new day with a positive outlook in life.

There are many things to consider in living life after college, being a fresh college graduate will never be easy. It’s like a battle of survival, and in order for you to stay breathing keep your dreams alive. Understand to achieve anything requires faith and belief in yourself, determination, vision, hard work, determination, and the most important thing is self-discipline. Remember all things are possible for those who believe. Help yourself to look forward for the long-term goals in life.

Success isn’t always about greatness. Stick to the plan. “Eyes on the prize” just keep on saving money. It’s about consistency. Consistent hard work leads to success. Greatness will come. Yes, #AdultingisREAL but once you surpass all the challenges in life, SUCCESS is REAL.  (Mary Clarince David)
