Don't Be Afraid to Change Your Goals
That being said, school is OVER - especially now that I've walked across the stage and graduated with my degree in hand.
It's something that I'm really proud of because it took me six LONG years to graduate and boy does it feel GREAT to be DONE!
I would not have gotten here without changing around a few of my goals. Ever since I was a kid, I've wanted to help people, make a difference, and change the world.
But with my final year of my program about to start, I KNEW that I didn't want to do construction anymore.
I felt lost. I felt scared. I felt hopeless.
After two months of school, my grades took a nose-dive and once my parents found out that I had failed my construction law midterm, they came down on me hard. I had studied and tried but my passion was just no longer there.
It was too much. All the anxiety that had built up. I felt so ashamed of myself that I broke. I cried openly in front of my parents. I never wanted for them to see me like that. All I knew was that construction was no longer for me anymore. The end looked bleak and so far away that I felt like I was all the way back in engineering again.
But after seeing how well my parents took my breakdown, they surprised me with all their support. They immediately stopped yelling at me once they saw that I was distraught and provided me with tissues. They consoled me when I least expected it and for that I am grateful.
If it weren't for those videos about personal development I had watched a few years back, I'm not sure I would have known that it was okay to cry in front of my parents.
If it weren't for crying in front of my parents, I'm not sure I'd be standing here today with my degree.
But now that it's finally all over, I can start fresh.
There's something I have now that I didn't have before.
It's that I get to choose my goals and to make myself happy.
I chose to start Casually Formal.
I chose to go into Men's Stye and the Industry of Self-Improvement because of what it has done for me.
I'VE CHANGED MY GOALS COUNTLESS TIMES OVER THE PAST 6 YEARS AND I FINALLY KNOW WHAT SUCCESS LOOKS LIKE TO ME.
It looks like making videos on YouTube, being happy, living with passion, and getting to help people, which was my original goal as a kid.
So don't be afraid to change your goals.
Remember it makes more sense to change your goals to choose happiness over chasing something else that makes you miserable.
As always guys, remember to stay casual!
