Starting college is exciting, scary, and hard work. Once people start it is usually their plan to finish in four years. But what happens when you lose momentum and feel like giving up? Don’t give up! This is a common feeling that many students experience. Many students experience the feeling of wanting to give up and go back to the easy life of doing what they want when they want.
Following the college regime is time consuming and tiring, but something you will be so proud of once you graduate. Finding some incentive to continue is always the best option instead of putting all that hard work to waste. Continue on to boost your confidence and desire to finish up those four years that will have a great impact on your life.
First, think about your financial future. You likely have already either paid a great deal of money or have loans equaling thousands of dollars that need to be paid back. If you do not finish school, was all that money wasted? And, how do you plan to pay it back since you will not be getting a high paying job now that you will not be finishing school? Financially, it is the smartest decision to finish school.
Next, what job you plan on getting with only some college under your belt? That is the same as never having gone, so the time and energy you put in will have been for nothing. You will be qualified for the same job as you were before you started school if you quit before graduation. Your time is worth more than quitting. The time you put in while you were in school and the amount of money your time is worth in the future. Finishing school is again the better option.
You want to be ahead of the game, not behind.
If you want to take some time off and do not exactly want to “quit”, think about the odds of you actually going back. Many students plan on taking a break and going back within one year. The fact is many of those students never go back because they get comfortable in a job. Think about the time you put in to college and don’t make it a waste. Bite the bullet and finish school. Your time and energy are too precious to waste.
