You Only Get Out What You Put In
This mantra applies to sports, relationships, exercise and schoolwork. You can't expect to reap the benefits of an experience if you haven't invested at least something into it. If you don't supply X (the preparations, the time, the effort, the attention, the right attitude), you won't get Y (the good grades, the strong muscles, the praise).
It is a simple formula really, but our experiences all too often fall short of our expectations simply because we didn't put anything into it. Relationships fail, internships are denied, bad grades are recieved, the scale number goes up, our bank accounts are depleted, and we are let down. But I'd bet when you refelct on these disappointing results and truly dissect the situation, you'd find that you didn't devote enough time, effort or positive attitude.
So, YOGOWYPI people!
Go to class. Study hard. Ask for help. What grade do you think you will get?
Find other people. Join their groups. Commit your time. How do you think your resume will look?
Save your money. Be a smart borrower. Live like a student. Where do you think your money will be?
You can simply survive college by going through the motions, or you can THRIVE here by pouring yourself into the experience. And I promise you, you'll get so much more out of it.
