It's this time of the year when the acceptance letters start to come in. And if you got accepted to a couple of schools, you might be wondering how do to choose the one? Well, I was in your situation last year, and I got to into two Universities, both of each I always wanted to attend. When it was the final moment to make a decision, I was so confused! Do I go to NYC or do I go to LA? Which school do I see myself in? You probably ask yourself a bunch of question as well. The key to making a right decision is your intuition! Yes, you read it right. That's what will help you to make this life changing decision. Write down a name of every college on a separate sheet of paper, and then throw them all into a hat or a box. Then, take a couple of deep breaths, and try to not think about anything just breath. With your eyes closed, pull one piece of paper from the hat and read it. Notice how you are feeling at the moment when you saw the name of the University. This is crucial! Do you feel relieved, happy, excited, sad, deep down wish you picked a different one? Focus exclusively on your feelings, and not your thoughts. Go with what feels right inside of you! That's your best guidance system. This is the same way how I picked my college, and I am very happy with the choice I've made. Good luck!

How to choose what to study in University/College (5 Steps)
2014/09/19 at 3:45 pm 2
It’s this time of the year again when senior high school students and others apply to colleges. Making a decision about what to study in college or university can be very stressful and tough. I went through this process last year, and I would like to share with you five steps that I took when I was making my decision. I hope you will find an answer to your question by following these steps. Step 1: Ask yourself what you see yourself doing in the future? It’s ok if you don’t have a specific answer to this question right now, think about a field where you see yourself in. For example, you might see yourself in the field of science or business. Write down your answer. If you can’t make a decision on just one area of study, then write down as many as you have in mind. Please, be honest with yourself, and at this moment don’t think about what your family or relatives want to see you doing in the future. It’s you, who are making the final decision, so think about what YOU want to do. I’ve met many unhappy students who are studying in college something that they didn’t want to study, and they picked that major only because their parents told them so. I’m not saying that you shouldn’t take your family’s opinions into consideration; you should because they want the best for you. However, it’s your life, and you need to be satisfied with the decision you are making because it’s going to affect your future. If nothing comes to your mind, then just jot down a list of jobs and imagine yourself actually doing this job and see if this technique will help you find the answer. If you are feeling happy and excited imagining yourself doing a particular job, then that’s a great sign. (more…)
