Emotions and Decision-Making for Students

America’s Psychiatrist, Media’s Psychiatrist, and Best Selling Author, Carole Liberman M.D., weighs in on how the unemployment rate and poor economy impacts decision-making for college students. She says:

“As a well known psychiatrist and author, who treats pre-college and
college students, I can answer your query.
The unemployment rate and poor economy is causing pre-college and
college students to feel depressed about their future.
Many shrug their shoulders and give up. Many opt for careers that
take  a shorter time to attain, since it feels like the extra years
won’t be  worth it in terms of financial success.
Most feel lost.
Students who had contemplated becoming physicians, for example, are
giving up their dream because they don’t want to deal with Obamacare
and socialized medicine.
Students who had contemplated becoming lawyers, for example, are
discouraged by the glut of lawyers and the realities of courts  closing
because of lack of funds.
There has been an epidemic of students returning home to live with
their parents because they can’t afford living in the dorm and/or
college tuition, or they can’t find a job after they
are graduated. The future looks bleak and many students are angry at
their parents’ generation and the government. These students often
fall into drug or alcohol addiction,
or escape into dead end jobs and dead end relationships.”

When asked how the college community and education activists can play a part in helping college students, she replied:

“The college community and/or education activists can help students  proceed with their dreams by giving lectures and organizing events  around inspirational topics, such as:

-Why choosing and following your passion should be based upon being  fulfilled by what you’re doing, not just upon what brings you material  wealth
-How to discover the simple pleasures in life
-If money can’t buy you happiness – how can you find it?
-How to choose a romantic partner based upon deeper values
-How to spot and avoid partners who are social climbers or gold-diggers”

Missed The Dream Purposeful Phenomenon? Watch It Now!

Last night the Collegiate Career Coach and founder of Dream Purposeful Empowerment Services, Mignon Brooks, talked about the importance of self discovery and how to start the process on your own through journaling. Click on the link below to watch the show.

What is your life purpose?

If you are like most adult students, you feel stressed out trying to
figure out what you want to do for the rest of your life.

Principal #1, from the Dare to Dream Big audio, is extremely helpful
in putting your worries to ease. Once you figure out your life
purpose, your path gets clearer and you are able to walk
confidently down the path towards the career of your dreams.

Download your own personal life purpose journal to get started.

Use each page to jot down your thoughts on the
following questions, and then use the last page to write out your
life purpose statement.

1. What’s something you do in which time goes by quickly (without
you even checking the time)?

2. If you had all of the money in the world, what would you do?

3. What are your hobbies? What do you like to do for fun? Don’t
just think about now, but also think about when you were a child.

4. What do you like about your hobbies? What is the feeling you get
when you’re engaged in them?

5. Think about a time you felt closest to your core (your true
self). Describe it. What did it feel like? What were you doing?

6. If you had a week to live, how would you spend it?If you take the
time to answer these questions—and you are really honest!—you’ll be
surprised how easy career planning can be. You may “see” the answer
is right in front of you.

Sign up for a 20-minute complimentary session to see how coaching
can benefit you and your entire future.
