You Want Progress? You Gotta Have Change

By: Ryan Roberts, Guest Blogger

The best stories are told by those who take risks. The stories that motivate you and ignite a fire that you never knew existed. Told by people who are willing to bend the rules and try something new, unknown, by people who realize that there is no way to prevent change so they embrace it instead.

Those are the people who I admire.

Our twenties are meant to be the experimental years. Now is the time to move someplace new on a whim, travel somewhere that you've always dreamt of going, and make as many new connections as you possibly can. It is pointless to drive yourself crazy stressing about the unknown… it isn't going anywhere.


My life is completely up in the air right now. My job ends this May when I graduate and my lease ends just two weeks later. I would be lying if I said that I wasn't stressed, but oddly, I am also excited. I have chosen to embrace this change and run with it.

I have found ways to keep my sanity during this crazy time. I am working on building a network of people who share my views, interests, and goals. I am reflecting on myself and making sure that I stay true to who I am. And I fight everyday to break the rules and achieve the impossible. These things are what will help me find success. These are the reasons that I am not letting myself feel bad about the things that I can’t control.  

And the best part: it’s working. My positive attitude has helped me meet people who I never imagined I would meet who have encouraged me to keep chasing my passions and following my dreams. The unknown may be scary, but shrugging away from opportunities is scarier.
