Lets take it one step at a time

A while ago, I wrote that I have no idea what I want to do with my life, and I still don’t.  After a conversation with my manager I realized I am only looking at the present and not even considering the future (in terms of my career).

I really like my job and what I am doing, completly opposite of how I felt at my previous job.  But still the thought of going to continue my education is still badgering me.  I need to focus and put all my effort into this application process. 

There are three schools I really want to get into
1. Instituto De Empressa
2. INSEAD
3. IESE

If I get into IE or IESE I will be in heaven, I really would.  Those two are my dream graduate schools.

Now all I have to do is take the GMAT, fill the application out and send it, that is not as easy as it sounds since I am so scared of taking the GMAT, I don’t want to get low scores and get discouraged. 

The worst thing that can happen to a person is discouragement and doubt, and the more I doubt my self the less likely it is for me to get accepted.  I don’t know do you guys believe in “energies” do you think the more negative thoughts I think of will reflect on the outcome of my application?

My direct manager told me to continue my education, to not let it just stand at what I am doing right now, that the more I add to my name the better, so INSHALA YA RAB I get accepted into one of the schools I apply to from those three schools (hopefully IE or IESE).

    I am losing you two to The Hills and graduate schools? Somehow the combination sounds so wrong! 😛

    Allah ewafegkom inshallah. Hope you both get into the schools you want to! And I hope to stay an undergrad forever! Yay for underachievers!

    Well, good luck in what you do & where you get accepted 🙂

    Well in some way the “negative” energy gets you & effects your surroundings because of the way you act…

    I fear the GMAT and GRE as well… It’s been forever since I’ve done any math and I am just really going crazy 😦

    I want to continue my studies Masters at least but I’m just waiting for this move because once that is done I’ll be applying for a Diploma Certificate in that field as well as learning as much as I can about it. The future is Human Resources hence I should look at the future.
