TUNE IN BELOW:

WHAT YOU’LL LEARN ABOUT IN THIS EPISODE:

  • The best way for parents to help their child discover his/her passions
  • The importance of a mentor and how you can find one
  • How finding one’s passion happens through a gradual process of exploring interests rather than through a spontaneous revelation
  • The consequences of forcing a passion merely for your college application.
  • How getting out of your comfort zone can be rewarding
  • Methods for building self-confidence

NOTABLE QUOTES:

The only way to gain clarity as to what field might be a good fit for you is to take action.
Passion is a build-up of multiple interests, multiple exposures, and multiple breakthroughs.
Do it now when you’re younger so that you’re building your resume, not polishing your resume to stand out.
Don’t let it be a lonely process. Instead, let it be a powerful experience.
That’s why it’s 99% mindset work and then one 1% actually doing the work because it’s about your mindset; it’s about your confidence.
This college admissions journey doesn’t have to be so difficult.
