Students Worry About Future

You will find students worry about the future. Also, they worry about their future career before they start to earn anything. This should change as students need to focus on their studies and skills.

When students get into college or university they are more concerned about their future money and career than about the present. Moreover, they get pessimistic after reading negative things in the newspaper. Also, you know students try to future-proof themselves. Because they have seen their parents and elders struggling and they want to protect themselves against any uncertainty.

But, no matter how much you try to save yourself from misfortunes some things are out of your control and you should try not to force yourself to take such subjects which you do not like because you lack faith in your dreams. For instance, you want to be a writer and are good at writing but you are scared about the future of writers. So, you choose economics which you don’t even like. Therefore, you will end up in a job that does not make you happy.

Similarly, you can plan your future but don’t become a control freak. You need to keep the window open for new things in life. For instance, you got an opportunity to work outside your city.
