I’m only left with one week in college (Yeeaaay 😅😓). Well I’m excited and scared at the same time(mixed feelings). Been writing this post for over 3 weeks now (exams😣) and also because I really didn’t know exactly what to write. College is over, cooperate world here I come? ….. I didn’t know really. But then I decided to reflect and i got to understand that it’s just the fear of the unknown that’s making me scared.
I’m about to enter the big world, meaning more responsibilities and expectations. I’m the first child in my family and the ‘title’ comes with a lot of expectations. The whole family is just looking at you like you can’t make mistakes (I’m not superwoman please😩and she also makes mistakes😂).
A few weeks ago I was watching Gary Vaynerchuk videos (a prominent Youtuber, American-Belarusian entrepreneur , best-selling just watch his videos 😉). He talks about what to do after college and embrace the first five years after college. It’s okay not to know what you’re going to do because you are entering the 5 year amazing period of your life. Greatest time of your life, time to realise your potential and attack the life you want to live.
Short terms (siya) You only live once maximize on that, Not to worry about getting a job but rather travel, start a business, be part of a organization you have always wanted to join, massively risk everything (there’s more fun in trying to be honest😄). The world isn’t what mummy and daddy told you it changes constantly.
Grind at your highest.Gary Vaynerchuk
Believe you can soar higher than you have before.
And the future is now so better utilize the moment.
This being said especially by an American is really hard to consider (I mean come on how can we travel in this Zimbabwean economy l😂l). Let’s just say do what works in Zim y’all!😄. But let’s not think these harsh conditions can limit you but rather try to work in such conditions and you never know you might enjoy it. Be creative, they say think out outside the box but you need really need a box to think:/
So check out Gary Vee’ s video on Life after college and also What Nobody Tells you about life after college. This might help🤗and also there are more exciting videos( I liked those two:)). Not African yes buuut I’m sure there are a few points that are contextual. I’ll be your African experience in a couple of months so sit tight with what I have researched (well my boyfriend sent one of the links😂).
Until next time Blackmwana is out♥.
