“Explore as much as you can” This will help you better understand yourself, your strengths, your weakness, your abilities to perform different tasks.
Maybe as of now, you are totally introverted and have a fear of speaking English in front of people! Maybe you are good at sports, Maybe you are good at speaking and influencing people or even maybe you think that you are not good at anything.
Whatever the case/scenario/situation you are going through right now.
Exploring multiple avenues of careers will showcase your true self and you’ll be able to know the best career option that you can choose from.

2. Be A Leader – College Life Lesson
Leadership Is Not About Being ‘BOSSY’, It’s About Being More Responsible.Unknown
A leader is not someone who just order on people, work on his own terms, senior to juniors and just do what he wants to do all the time.
But a Leader is someone who knows how to get the work done by building connections, relationship with team, people and clients. Also, he knows which task to be assigned to whom for better productivity and the growth of the individuals.
A true Leader knows his/her responsibilities towards the the role he/she is assigned to.
Some of the greatest leaders of all time are – Martin Luther King, Mahatma Gandhi, Mother Teresa, Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam, Nelson Mandela, Narendra Modi and the list can goes on.

3. Love What You Do (Take Full Charge)
There are two statements which are very popular and I am sure that you might have heard them in your life.
The Statements are – “Do What You Love” & “Love What You Do”.
Here, I’ll talk about the second statement “Love What You Do”.
Right now you might not know what are the things that you are really good at or what’s that one thing that you enjoy doing the most.
In that case, until and unless you discover your true purpose, passion – you need to just love all the things that you do.
This article is all about college life lessons, right? So, college life is the best time to participate as much as you can.
Doesn’t matter if it is a speaking event, role play, competitions, fairs, workshops, anything and everything apart from your academics. You should be the one who participate in all those events.
Participating in all those activities will help you to discover your true self and you’ll be able to grow yourself as a person. You’ll be able to grow your skillsets through these activities.
After discovering your true self, then you would be able to “Do all the things that you Love” under the “Do What You Love” statement.
4. Never Trust The Third Person
Remember that the foundation of every single relationship in this world is “TRUST”, and if you don’t have trust in any relationship then their is no sense of being into that relationship.
In your college life, you’ll go through these types of experiences where you’ll have this “THIRD” person who will try to create mess in your relationships.
So, try to be aware of this and never trust these people in your life.
Even if their something like that – Just talk to the other person and you’ll end up saving your relationships.
Hold on, I’m not just talking about the intimate relationships but all kind of relationships.
As I told you earlier, Trust is the most important and very crucial pillar of any relationship. Make it so strong that even no earthquake can break it (Metaphorical speaking).
5. Focus More On Practical Things
You have read so much of theory in your school life. But when you are about to enter in college – make sure that you are focusing more on practical things.
Now, What do I mean by Practical things?
Good question that you asked!
So, by practical I want to say that focus more and more on learning new things & start implementing in the real life scenarios.
See most of the people what they do is ‘They just learn, learn, learn and learn”. They never implement what they have learnt.
Now remember –
Knowing and not doing is equals to Not Knowing”UNKNOWN
Better try to implement things that you have learnt or things that you know. You’ll evolve as a person and that’s for sure.
So, be more practical about your learning and knowing the things.
