Dreams Do Come True - Words of Advice For Graduating Student
Dare To Dream
1. Find your passion
You need to find your passion. What is something you would really like to do? Are their issues in your schools, community or society that you think is wrong that you would like to change? What do you want to spend the rest of your life doing? If you can answer these questions, find someone that is doing this or a group that has interest in the topic. If that group doesn’t exist yet, start it yourself.
2. Invest yourself fully in one thing, and do it well
Find a committee or organization that you can join. If you want to be a leader one day, find an organization you can work in now and spend time helping the organization by working on projects for them. Volunteering is a great way to meet people, learn and find ideas that can support you in the future.
3. Do it for the right reasons
Do you want to be a Leader? If you are just looking to add a title in front of your name, you probably won’t enjoy what you are doing. You NEED to be doing it for the right reasons. If you are truly dedicated, the rest will fall into place. Your sincere dedication will be noted, and you will soon find yourself naturally fitting into a leadership role.

4. Take on additional responsibilities
You don’t have be in an official position of leadership to take initiative and be a leader. If people are asking for extra help, even if it is not one of your responsibilities, help them out. Also, find new areas of improvement that no one has taken the initiative on and start them up yourself. This kind of tenacity and dedication will show that you are ready to be a leader in the future.
5. Make friends at the top
This one is the most ‘political’ but it is certainly true, so I had to add it. You need to know people who are already successful if you are going to inherit their position one day. Say hi to people, don’t be intimidated. If it is someone that can help you ask them if you can you email or call them to discuss your goals. Get to know who they are and what they are doing and see how you can possibly help them also.
