Let’s look at a few ways we can harness our emotional intelligence and communication to become stronger team players (and leaders) as we move through our careers.
Whether that's maintaining a certain GPA; passing all of your subjects; landing an internship; managing a side hustle; working on your networking skills, being on the executive team of your university club; graduating ... the list goes on. We ALL have expectations of ourselves - and so we should - because they go hand in hand with our goals!
Think about this: In our career journey or general lives ... when we have goals we set out to achieve or ANY task where we apply effort - regardless of the outcome - it means we didn't only or just do anything (these are common success-belittling terms). It actually reflects that we took small steps in our careers.
Resilience is (to me, anyway): Tackling challenges and setbacks as they come – and oh, they will come – whilst always knowing deep down that I am strong enough to get where I want to go.

As important as it is to grow up competent and independent, able to figure things on your own (something I like to preach about a lot) ... It is also equally important to be smart and ask for help and advice when you need it.
With heaps of conflicting information flying at you on the ins and outs of what makes a perfect final year - it can be hard to decide what is best for you.
Whether we like it or not, life is a game ... as is work and our careers. We often think that games are trivial or that they rely on luck so we are hesitant to think about something as serious as our life as one.
