Don’t fear change

One important thought to remember about change is that is causes fear, both large and small. Change challenges the status quo and can sometimes seem to turn your life upside down. Yes, change can be dramatic, stressful and frightening, but it can also be illuminating, challenging and energizing — if you see it in the proper light. Feel fear, but then turn this fear into something powerful.

Flexibility to Change

To be flexible to change, we must first learn to recognize it. Too often I meet people who are doing the mental equivalent of sticking their fingers in their ears or their head in the sand. They think that if they ignore a change, it will simply go away. Nothing could be further from the truth. Change will happen whether we wish it to or not. We can either ride the wave of change or let it knock us to the sandy beach like an unheeded ocean wave.

Why Teens Should Start Networking In High School via Career Realism

High school networking

As a professional recruiter and career coach, I regularly have the opportunity to speak with recent college graduates referred to me by parents from my professional and personal networks. Unfortunately, I see countless recent college graduates who went to great schools and have stellar grades, but have done almost nothing to develop professional relationships prior to graduating. They often spend months searching for jobs without success, and find themselves frustrated and disillusioned.

When you’re jumping into a new project or endeavor, it’s natural to look to those who know what they’re doing in order to learn from them. That’s great, but as the blog Life Without Pants points out, it’s important to remember not to compare yourself to those who have been doing something for longer than you.

3 Questions to Ask Yourself When You Don't Know What You Want to Do via The Muse

I started college as a musical theater major, but by the end of my freshman year, I knew I wasn’t supposed to have a career on stage. I dabbled in psychology before finding my calling in marketing.

A friend of mine, on the other hand, started her career as a marketer. But after picking up running, she’s in school to become a physical therapist. Another friend has been a software engineer by education and profession, and he recently transitioned into data science.

Why Having More Time Being Alone Makes You A Greater Person via Lifehack

“The best thinking has been done in solitude.” – Thomas Edison

When was the last time you were alone?

Not alone by today’s standards (Facebook and Twitter within arms reach, friends constantly buzzing your phone), but truly by yourself, with no outside influences providing data or information to your brain. Can you think of that time? If you’re like most people, it might take you more than a few seconds. The speed of life at which the world lives today doesn’t leave much time to stop and smell the flowers, let alone leave time for yourself.
