College can at times be a very stressful process, but with the right help and advice, I think we can all learn to enjoy it and make the best of it. As you start college you need to realize that you are entering a new phase of your life, where you are expected to be an independent person. For starters you should read 14 Things a Freshman Should Know About College to familiarize yourself with what you should know.
As you are getting ready for the upcoming semester be sure to prepare yourself, not only with the physical things that you will need for college, but emotionally and psychologically. Envision yourself as a college student, completing papers, passing exams, and completing your degree with a 4.0 G.P.A. Remember that positive thinking can have a profound impact on your life in college. Sometimes positive thinking is all you have left to hold on to, so get a good grip on it.
Now, if you have already graduated and are now thinking about graduate school, then you should apply positive thinking and envisioning as well. I don't think there is a better time for this then when you are dealing with the graduate school admission process. This is a very demanding and physically draining process; however, believe me the end results are very much worth it. Come on imagine yourself after you have completed graduate school and where you will be? You will be working in your dream job, doing what you actually enjoy and not a job that you had to settle. So stop stressing yourself because in the end it will all be alright.
Always have the right mindset, don't thinking negatively, be prepared, try as much as possible not to procrastinate and you will do great in college and graduate school.
