Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful.
We finished high school and many of us said: “Yeah, I know what I want to do!”
Some of us, however, felt as lost as we were our entire high school career, if not more. We then had options of A) A gap year to figure yourself out, get to know what you love and what you don’t. B) Parents push you into studies because (well you’re lost as hell) or C) Work immediately
Taking a gap year can be good or bad, depending on the type of person you are. Don’t let the party absorb you, use your time wisely. Travel if you can, and see what is out there. The world is full of opportunities and we won’t know if we don’t push to see them! Why not teach English or Aupair in a foreign country? How about teaching snowboarding in the snow – get those skills on point first people! There is so much to experience. Should you not have the option to travel, start a hobby or three. Find your passions slowly.
Sometimes your parents guide you into something. Sometimes this can work out beautifully but it can also turn out a waste of money or an unhappy career. Remember that everything you do will only expand your knowledge and add to that brilliant CV.
To work immediately after college is brave and admirable. Maybe you’re working towards those savings for your future studies. Network constantly and you will eventually land up where you need to be.
