Happy Grad Pledges

I will fight the negativity surrounding my future. I will not submit to
NST (negative self-talk). I will not let myself or others tell me that
I will fight the negativity
I will manage my expectations
I understand that I need to earn my success. I will dream big, but
I will also set manageable goals and expectations for myself.
I will not compare myself to others
I will not let others’ perceived success or failure affect my attitude
about my future. I will not let jealousy affect my happiness.
I will embrace the experience
I understand that my life won’t be perfect, and that failing is a
part of life. I will not let fear of failure control my actions. I will
learn and grow from every mistake I make. I will hold myself
accountable for my actions.

becoming a Happy Grad. Don’t put off your happiness any
