Contrary to what many people think, graduating from high school doesn’t mean your life is over. Far from it. You’ve got a long way to go and you’re just starting. Maybe you’re going to college, the military, work, or something else, it’s your decision. At this point, whatever you decide won’t be the last decision you make about the rest of your life.
During your lifetime, you may drop out of college, and go to work. You might graduate from college, and become a professor. You might join the military and make a career out of it. You might even decide to take a year or two off and travel the world. Then again, you may want to start our own business. You change, people change, and life is full of changes. The world doesn’t end when you change your decisions.
Yes your career – what you do with the rest of your life – is important. On the other hand, over your lifetime, you may make five or six career changes. With each change, you learn more, experience more, and become more valuable to yourself, your family, and your employer.
Remember, graduation from high school is not the end; it’s the beginning.
