Be intentional and bold as you pursue your future, take time to think about what’s important to you, and do not fear mistakes as you begin your adventure.
Be deliberate about your first impression.
Look people in the eye.
Be present, relax and listen.
Do your homework - have some questions you can ask
GENERAL RULES, collars are good, pressed is better then wrinkles, holes vs no holes, clean vs dirty, fit well vs TOO tight or TOO big, colors you get compliemtns in, feel comfy in...
Doesn't mean you have to spend a bunch of $.
Be unafraid (applying at Dayton's Story)
Trust (and test) your instincts, Your mistakes might as well be your own, It can feel scary to let more of yourself out - but it's really what the world needs.
Don't DQ yourself from opps - when your mind gets a mind of it's own.
Don't compare yourself (too much. )
Time and a place
Take small steps. Better than no steps.
Be open to input from others. Constructive critique. And what you are doing well.
What does it look like for you to be fearless with this adventure?
What are you willing to try? Get risky.
Security is mostly a superstition. Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.
if you are feeling uncomfortable you are probably right where you should be EMRACE IT (panty hose story)
Interview others, have questions for them.
THINK about what you want. (shut off the noise)
FOR NOW, it will likely change
Get some Grit (you are driving, you get a flat tire, what do you do?)
Grit: you have an asset. It's easy to think it's not so awesome where you're at, know this...You get a lot of skills growing up in a small community that turn out to be strengths - persevere as you grow and become more of the awesome person you were created to be. It's a messy process.
Small towns. Kids have grit. Chores, jobs at early ages, volunteering, 4-H
Stick with things when they are hard.
Essential to high achievement , Perseverance..may be more important than intelligence (solid character)
