What Are the Biggest Lies You Hear on Graduation Day?

You can’t do everything you put your mind to, and every single graduate is not going to change the world.

Day One

“Today is the first day of the rest of your life.”

It’s beneficial to consider every day forth as being a clean slate, but there is no grand system reboot where all your past data is erased for posterity. You need not dwell on your past screwups, wasted days and burned bridges, but just because you choose not to focus on them doesn’t mean those parts of your life have been deleted.

Educated and Inexperienced

“You’ve got education, now get experience.”

Just because you finished your classes and received a diploma doesn’t make you fully educated in this world. The ”now get experience” half of this saying is true, because even many of the most unassuming experiences you’ll have in life will make you more knowledgable about the world around you than almost everything you learned in class.

Never Say Never

“Never let anyone tell you there is something you can’t do.”

Always doing things people expressly tell you is impossible will turn out in your favor only once in a great while at best. To never heed the lessons of wiser minds who have already made the very same mistakes would be a seriously flawed way to approach adult life.
