Why do you go to college? Is it pressure from parents, pressure to get a job, or is it for the experience and to become a better person? Many learners go to college to get something instead of becoming somebody. Our educational and capitalist systems have turned learning into a “what’s in it for me” quest for materialism. The results show only 42 percent of recent college grads are working jobs that require college degrees, the Pew Economic Mobility Project reports. When college becomes a place where learners can begin to discover who they were meant to be, and move beyond the “what’s in for me” mentality, learners will begin to truly understand their purpose in life.
When we help learners uncover who they were meant to be, they can begin to practice living their lives to their fullest potential while they are in college. When teaching and learning happens in a positive environment, in ways that affect the minds and hearts of everyone, we attract positive abundance into learners’ lives. When teaching and learning happens in a negative environment, the minds and hearts of everyone become filled with negativity, and we attract negative scarcity into learners’ lives. Wayne Dyer makes a wonderful point,
If you’re obsessed with defeating the other guy and winning at all costs, then you’re guaranteed to attract the vibrational equivalent of this thinking into your life even if you do yoga and stand on your head chanting mantras everyday.The more you see yourself as what you’d like to become, and act as if what you want is already there, the more you’ll activate those dormant forces that will collaborate to transform your dream into your reality.
