It might seem a thought but is a truth that has seen the empires crumble. For any student, learning is not just to a means to end. It is the pathway to obtain that ultimate knowledge to be successful in life.
Whether it is missing out on that favorite food from home or loved ones, the journey may not seem easy. But, for these students who are exploring the world’s finest universities for their career, their accommodation becomes home and cities like London, New York, or Sydney, their new homeland. While you are hustling through student life, there are some golden words to keep you going. So, let’s hear it then.
1. “Stay Hungry Stay Foolish” – Steve Jobs
n a commencement speech at the famous Stanford University in 2005, the modern-day Einstien or the co-founder of Apple Steve Jobs gave this quote to the students. The quote has a backstory from the famous innovator.
Steve dropped out of college because he was not interested in the classes. But, more than that he wanted to take up courses that excited him like the calligraphy class from Reed College.
As a student, this quote will inspire you to follow your passion than what is lucrative. There is always a phase in life when you need to choose between passion and a lucrative career. But, what Steve Jobs is trying to tell us here is if you stay hungry for more and even foolish to make mistakes, you will eventually make it big.
2. “If you hear a voice within you say ‘you cannot paint,’ then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced.” – Vincent Van Gogh
This one is purely about will power. As a student, we often decide to choose a career that might not lead to success. But, that is the beauty of student life, you need to keep on doing what are you good at. Here, the famous artist is referring to the will of going on with your passion proving your inner voice wrong.
3. “Don’t go around saying the world owes you a living. The world owes you nothing. It was here first.” – Mark Twain
Mark Twain is known for his poems and some inspirational quotes. A student’s life is not that simple, you have to meet new people find accommodation that is near to your college and other stuff.
Though some services can help you find affordable student accommodations, facilitate airport transfers, documentation, and others. But, yet you need to do many things by yourself.
Sometimes, it may take a toll on you. Mark Twain suggests that don’t give up, because the world does not owe you anything and you can’t expect a fairytale.
4. “It always seems impossible until it’s done” – Nelson Mandela
The revolutionary leader who freed South Africa from the tyranny of Britishers inspires every student to start their journey rather than just thinking about the consequences. It is obvious that there is always doubt about a new city, new people and culture, but you need to take that first step to accomplish what you are destined for.
5. “You don’t drown by falling in the water. You drown by staying there”
– Louis Cole
As a student, you may hit roadblocks in your academic career. But, no obstacle can keep you from moving forward. It will inspire you to keep thinking of all the success you can have by pursuing the path that you are on and not about the failures and be stagnant.
6. “Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.” – Thomas A. Edison
Thomas Alva Edison needed just one right way to build a bulb and in efforts to find that way he failed almost 3000 times. Here, his words are inspiring the students to try and try until they achieve the best outcome.
7. “There are far, far better things ahead than any we leave behind.” – C.S. Lewis
It is always hard to let things go that are close to us. Students need to let the comfort of their house and explore the unknown for success. It is more than evident for international students that need to find home-like accommodations, live with new people, and still work hard to achieve success.
8. “If opportunity does not knock build a door” – Milton Berle
It often happens that you are working hard, and yet the opportunity does not come your way. Students looking for an opportunity to get better at their career can take this quote as inspiration and work hard to create better chances.
Students who are looking for career opportunities post academics can keep on working on their skills to create more chances of getting good employment
9. “Shoot for the moon and even if you miss you will end up among the stars” – Les Brown
It is simple, aim high in life. If your aim is high, even if you don’t reach for your objective, the outcome will be better than what you might be without the aim. Looks confusing? Think of mountaineering, if you aim to climb a mountain of 2000 meters height, you may as well reach 1000 meters, and yet you have achieved something rather than staring at the mountain
10. “Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.” – Winston Churchill
Success is built from many failures put together. The British prime minister from the second world war is here referring to the enthusiastic approach that students can keep while dealing with failures.
Students that fly across the world to pursue their dreams in metropolitan cities like London, New York, Sydney, Paris, and others often see some setbacks when they face different obstacles like finding accommodations, food problems, the difference in cultures, and others. But, these are the stepping stones to a successful life. These quotes can help students to keep the fire of passion ignited for a brighter future.
