Steps to Success: Life After Graduation

Contributed to Youth Services Unit by Dr. Alexandra Bodden

Graduation is an exciting and terrifying time as you step foot into the “real world” and many of us for the first time have some very big decisions to make. But where do you start? Below are some ideas to help you make the most of your first “real world” experience and to help you get to where you want to be:

  1. Aim High – “Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you will land among the stars” is a favourite quote at graduations.  The essence of this idea is to set the bar high, this way even if we don’t quite make it, we are likely to get further than we would have if we had set lower expectations.  The difficulty is to find the confidence to set our sights high.  We want to aim high but also give ourselves the greatest likelihood of success so take into consideration your strengths, personal goals and past experiences (good and bad) to develop measurable, achievable goals that inspire you and encourage you to continue to grow personally and professionally.  And it is okay to be scared, this is a sign that we are growing, use that energy to take your performance to the next level!
