Hello lovelies! I hope that you had a lovely Valentine’s Day this year! Yesterday I went out for dinner with my boyfriend and had a wonderful time “celebrating” the holiday (in quotes because I am personally not the biggest fan of Valentine’s Day!) Today on the blog I will be discussing a few reasons as to why you should take difficult classes while you are in college. I know, I know, this sounds like bad advice at first – why would you want to put yourself in a situation where you may struggle? But honestly there are some very good reasons why these classes are a good option for you and will help you out in the long run. Here’s three to consider!
1. They challenge you
Not everything good in life is easy. Difficult classes will challenge you mentally and physically. You’ll have to spend more time working on homework and studying for them so you understand the material. They’ll teach you patience. They’ll teach you how to stay motivated in difficult times. They’ll make you a smarter, stronger cognitive thinker.
2. You’ll discover more about yourself
You will likely come to the realization that you are capable of so much more than you originally thought. You’ll discover new abilities and skills as you push yourself past your limits and comfort zone.
3. You’ll be more ready for post-graduation
By taking difficult classes within your major, you will learn new skills and be more prepared for a post-graduation career track. You’ll be ahead of the competition and more desirable to future employers who are looking for motivated, energetic individuals who are willing to go the extra mile.
