10 Positive Thoughts for Your Grad School Application Process:
1. If I do my best throughout this process, I will end up at exactly the school and program where I belong. 2. Setbacks and mistakes are a natural part of this process. I’m taking a big risk by being honest with myself about my dreams and goals—and being willing to go after them! 3. At all moments—right this moment—I am being drawn toward the people, places, and opportunities for my highest good and my highest service to the world. 4. There is enough time, money, energy, and opportunities in life for me to make a difference. There is room at the top for me! 5. I am dedicated to enjoying this journey. Not every part will be fun or easy, but I will not let my life whiz by me in a race to “the next best thing.” I live and enjoy my life today. 6. I’m either winning or learning. Even if things don’t turn out exactly as I’d hoped, I will gain valuable lessons that will be invaluable to me and to others in the future. 7. I give myself permission to go after the opportunities that excite me, to reach out to the people I want to meet, and to apply to the schools that I’d love to attend. 8. I am willing, ready, and going to take one step today toward reaching my goals of getting into my dream school. I know that even just one small action is better than doing nothing. 9. I give myself permission to rest, relax, and take a break from thinking about “grad school stuff” all the time. I know that I don’t have to push myself to exhaustion in order to reach my goals, because my goals want to reach me as much I want to reach them. 10. I surround myself with uplifting people and abundant thoughts that affirm my journey toward the graduate program of my choosing.
