When interning last summer at my current job, I gained a lot of experience personally and professionally. The one piece of advice that I will always take with me is to stay positive. I’m sure Lauren Berger can agree that this is very important to maintain your composure.
Deadlines approach quickly, you have multiple projects going on and above all that you still have to update your social networks; put a smile on during all that work. Just saying this phrase to yourself “be a positive Polly” will hopefully make you laugh in the most stressful of times. Underneath all your stress you need to be mindful of how you appear to the people around you. When you leave your current internship or continue to work there, you want to be remembered as a cheerful individual.
Here are some inspirational quotes to help you smile. Posting quotes like the following around your work area can serve as little reminders to be a true positive Polly.
- Consider nothing impossible, and then treat possibilities as probabilities. – Charles Dickens
- There are so many people out there who will tell you that you cant. What you’ve got to do is turn around and say “watch me”. – Unknown
- All of our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them – Walt Disney
