CONGRATS TO THE 2021 GRADUATES OF JACKSON STATE UNIVERSITY
Summer 2021-- Congratulations to all the graduates! Hard, concentrated work pays off! The discipline of showing up, writing the notes, essays, and the anxiety of passing the exams, you have achieved!
A Sage shout out to our own graphic designer Clement Gibson, a Master of Science in Strategic Communication at Columbia University and Dr. Danielle Bogan (my cousin 😉) who received her Ph.D. in Public Health at Jackson State University!
SAGE SURVIVAL CAREER TIP:
You can't do your life work / career by yourself. PERIOD. FULL STOP!!
Build your support network, friends, professional groups and make allies. People who respect, praise and care for you. These are your human angels during the dark days of your career and there are dark days.
You learn how to take lemons and make lemonade.
Keep going and make your next strategic move for success by building an armor of participated resilience. Co-workers, employer oppression, anger, racism, sexism, and people who just don't like you will test your self-esteem.
NEVER QUIT but access the situation and strategize your next move and level up. Build a community of support and don't do your professional career in isolation. The forces are too fierce, and you have worked too hard. Thrive in your spiritual nature and go beyond this man-made matrix.
"You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it's not how hard you hit, it's about how hard you can get hit, and keep moving forward."
-Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone)
"No one is coming to save you! This life is 100% your
responsibility. You are greater than you think!"
