UNEMPLOYED AFTER GRADUATION? 3 more reasons why it’s amazing to be an unemployed graduate
Unemployed? Nah, I prefer to be known as Chief Procrastinator at Netflix.
Being unemployed after graduation is one of those amazing things that can happen to you in life. Heading out to the big real world all on your own with no one telling you what to do is liberating if you ask me. No deadlines, no studying what you don’t want, no rules. As a unemployed graduate of more than 6 months (yes I broke my ankle and went to Hong Kong but no one cares), I think I highly qualify to speak on this topic.
For the first 3 reasons why it’s amazing to be an unemployed graduate, check out my vid. Stay until the end for hilarious bloopers.
When you’ve done watching that, here are 3 more reasons why it’s amazing to be an unemployed graduate:
You are young, sexy and FREE! The world is your oyster! Okay maybe not sexy but if you’re ever gonna look attractive, it’s gonna be now… No but seriously you are in your 20s right now and it’s seriously the time to make the most out of your life.
You have your whole life in front of you, this is an exciting time guys! There’s no mortgage, no kids, no bills to pay. YOU ARE FREE. Now is the perfect time to take a year or two for yourself and explore your interests, discover yourself and do everything you wanted to do!
Always wanted to do that gap year? Then do it!
What have you got to lose? 1 year of your time? That’s nothing.
It’s something you won’t be able to do when you’re 40 with kids, got more wrinkles than a prune, drowning in a sea of bills to pay.
When you’re older you don’t wanna regret the things you never dared to do because of the fear you had, the courage you lacked and the
Trust me, we’re all scared. We all have fear. The difference is not letting it get in the way of what we wanna do. Feel the fear and do it anyway but not too much or else this will happen.
No one puts it better than Gary Vee himself. If there’s one thing you HAVE to watch today, then it’s this (and my video too 😉 ):
Being unemployed after graduation is a much needed reality check. Life isn’t sorry that they burst your university bubble, they did it on purpose.
News flash, uni days are over mate. Chances are that you’re gonna move back home to save money (good luck with that).
It’s gonna be tough but what you need. It’s gonna be a great period for your to self reflect, grow and develop your ability to handle annoying members of the family – you’re gonna need that for the rest of your life cos family are for life unfortunately.
Living at home is gonna create the desire for you to escape! For you to find solutions, opportunities, restart your life and FIGURE IT OUT. Or you just end up getting promoted to a Executive Chief Procrastinator at Netflix.
No lie, being unemployed after graduation is a sour period. Life isn’t all rainbows and sunshine, it’s sweet and sour but with all things in life, you can make them sweet not sour. It’s all about perspective. See the opportunities, not the negatives.
Be grateful, not hateful. I’m rooting for you! The good thing about going through sour times is that you really appreciate the sweet times afterwards.
For many, this may be the period of your life that is the most hard hitting, it was for me anyway. To be honest, it isn’t even about being unemployed after graduation that’s the sour part, it’s living at home.
Have a dream to be a singer? Ha, fat chance. Have any dream whatsoever? That’s funny your parents say.
Parents have a dream life already planned out for you. It’s amusing because they’re like some wannabe clairvoyant, having meticulously envisioned your whole life out before you were born, before they knew you even existed.
Point is, you might drown in the whirlwind tsunami of negativity your parents hurdle at you. The key is to not give a shit and remain upbeat.
There’s only so many shits you can give and you ain’t got time to waste on what others think of you. Seriously.
Just be grateful that you’ve got no rent to pay and free food. Then just block out the rest. Get in ya zone. This is where meditation helps so much.
I recommend you meditate everyday, for 5 minutes to start with. It’s better to be consistent and start small. Rather than do 20 minutes once in a blue moon.Or if you find it hard to I recommend guided meditations, Michael Sealey does some awesome ones.
That’s it for now! I hope this helped you in some way or another, even if it was just me getting hit by lemons in the video that made you laugh. That’s exactly my point though. If life hits you with lemons, just laugh!
Okay well maybe not if your dog died, actually that could be funny in a really sick, twisted way. Just remember that life is gonna hit you, just gotta roll with the hits, brush them off and let no one stop you!
Turn that sweet into sour, I’m rooting for you!
