Are you ready to start facing the real world after high school? Chances are you’re not. According to a recently published job satisfaction survey* more than half of all employees are dissatisfied with their jobs. In fact, job satisfaction is down as much as 61% from eight years ago. Do you want that to be you?
Be prepared… or be spanked! For those who are unprepared, the real world can be a cold slap in the face. Ouch!
Job-hopping, as a result, has almost become a sport. Unfortunately, this has become the career default method. Avoiding such pitfalls can assist you in making your transition into the real world a rewarding experience once you have mastered certain success trategies.
Sadly, the preparation for real world success strategies offered by most high schools is woefully inadequate. Clearly, a basic knowledge of language, math, science, and history is necessary. However, other crucial life skills must be embraced for young adults to achieve success in the “real world.”
You have a unique gift to share with the world. Avoid the trap that most people fall into. Don’t allow yourself to be needlessly spanked by the real world. Finding your passion and developing it is the greatest reward you could give to yourself and others.
