Experience is indeed the best teacher. However, challenges, setbacks and failures have their own advantage on your personality if you learn your lessons well. Observing and being receptive to the gradual transformation of things within you and outside is going to be of a great help always. We have interacted with a lot of overseas education aspirants and also the students who have returned after a great student experience abroad. Here are a few important life lessons that our students have acquired after their rich academic experiences.
1.Why and How to find the perfect work environment? : You must carefully examine if the work environment you are in or the group of friends you have chosen, are they good enough to bring out the best in you? Growth is important at every stage of life. You must time and again evaluate growth and benefits you get out of a company; personally or professionally. Everybody wants a better social life and job satisfaction at the end of the day. Hence you must know where and with whom are you surrounded. Keep reflecting and introspecting after a few interactions and move in or out whenever you feel is correct.
- How to value tasks you do not enjoy?: We all understand that life isn’t a bed of roses and we would not always enjoy the tasks that we have to do. You might not like reading that text that can bag you full bands in your IELTS or do the math practice that would get you higher scores in GMAT. However after doing some of them, you would understand that they demonstrate your optimism and your survival instinct. This quality is very important for recruiters for them to choose an employee at high posts. Hence, move your dislikes at the back of your mind and give your best.
- How to cope with the fast moving life we live? : We live on a constant fast forward button. Our lives change and transform in no time. Hence we must learn how to settle down in life and move with the flow. Curiosity to learn new things and open mindedness to accept change and new and transforming environments.
