Dear 2018 College Graduates,
I would like to start off by saying congratulations. It may seem like a large percentage of the population has a college degree, but in fact, the opposite is true.
According to the U.S. Department of Education, only approximately 30% of adults living in the United States, have a college degree.
A college degree is a great thing to have. It can open up opportunities for you. It increases your likelihood of getting hired. It shows that you can learn, and that you complete what you start.
Don't let this burst your bubble, but I have to say it....Although a college degree can get your foot in the door, it won't keep your foot in the door, unless you are getting the job done. A college degree is not a crutch. It is a tool.
All of the dreaming about the possibilities that you've done, from landing your dream job, to having your own business, to building the life and lifestyle of your dreams, is all possible, but to get what you want, you've gotta earn it.
If you do the best you can in every situation, keep an open mind to new possibilities, are willing to learn, listen to the people who are where you want to be, are kind to others, keep your word, believe in yourself, treat your body well, and use your time wisely, you are extremely likely to achieve the life and lifestyle that you desire.
"When you do the right things consistently, over a long enough period of time, you are positioning yourself to be in the right place, at the right time, when opportunity strikes." Michael "MJ The Terrible" Johnson - Founder & Owner - Masters of Money, LLC.
Work hard. Put in the time. Put up the numbers. Pay your dues, and eventually you will get what you want/get where you want to be.
In closing- A lot of things matter, but we each decide what we want to make important in our lives.
Congratulations and good luck!
Yours in success,
Michael "MJ The Terrible" Johnson
