My advice to undergraduates

Advice from someone a few years ahead.

A few weeks ago, I was asked to do a video giving advice to current undergraduates for the housing community I worked at during college.

I felt like this was pretty much the same advice I give to all undergrads Iโ€™ve met over the past 6 years since graduating myself.

Why you shouldn’t finish all of your food

Most of what holds us back from achieving out goals are our mental scrips we got as kids.

I was inspired to record a video and discuss my thoughts this past Friday when we had free food at work.

In this video I talk about how the mental scripts that we got when we were younger may not serve us well as we get older and have different goals we want to achieve.

As usual, please let me know in the comments how you felt, if you agree, disagree, or just give me a like to let me know you enjoyed it!

Why I Love Mondays

Why Mondays aren’t the worst day of the week, at least to me.

Most people love Fridays & Saturdays but typically hate Mondays or Tuesdays.

My reasons why I love the beginning of the week and why reframing your thoughts this way can be beneficial.

I’m curious: What is your favorite day of the week and why?

As usual, leave me a comment below! I love reading and responding to you all.

To Improve Your Life, Improve Your Friends

One of the most effective ways to improve the results you’re getting. Surround yourself with those who elevate you.

 

โ€œYou are the average of your 5 closest friendsโ€

This โ€œThought of the Dayโ€ centers around the idea of how the easiest way to predict our future is to look at who we choose to surround ourselves with.

Constantly find groups that will push you to become your better self.

Take on leadership positions to force yourself to take on new challenges.

Choose growth over comfort.

Special thanks to the Campuswide Honors Program (CHP) at UCI for elevating my mindset and being a part of my personal journey to where I am today ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ

When People Complain About Walking Far

How perspective can change your reality.

The other day I was talking to a friend who works at both as a nurse, and at milk tea shop part-time.

It made me realize that perspective is a powerful thing.

A bit of perspective can dramatically change our experience. Add up those experiences and over time we have a happier life.

What do you think? How has gratitude played a part in your life?

How do we find our purpose?

The other day, I was in a discussion group talking aboutย willpower and how someone would develop or increase it.

One of the guys in our group said:

“All you have to do is just find your purpose and do it. Then you’ll get more willpower.”

Me: “But how do you just ‘find your pupose?'”

I didn’t like that answer because it sounded easier said than done. I felt like saying that wouldn’t help anyone who wanted to find their purpose but didn’t know how.

Key idea: You find your purpose by trying different things and finding the intersection ofย what you’re good at andย what you enjoy doing.ย
