Come on. You can do it. It’s only two more years. Sure, you’ve been in school, in one form or another, for most of the time since you were five years old but it’s all for a very worthy cause. Two years isn’t that much longer.
Do you find these words swimming through your mind as you ponder the decision to enroll for a masters degree? If so, don’t feel bad. You are definitely not alone.
By the time you’ve earned the prerequisite education to enroll for a masters degree, you’ve been studying for almost all your life. It’s getting a little tiresome and you’re certainly justified in your desire to quit studying and move on.
But, since you’ve already come this far, do you really want to move on without completing your masters degree? Two years isn’t really that long and a masters degree can be the key to unlocking the door to many rewarding jobs on which you can build a very illustrious career.
In fact, some of the more interesting jobs, the ones that also pay the most, are open only to applicants who hold a masters degree. You don’t want to be locked out of the chance to land one of these jobs, do you?
A break from studying, even if only for a while, may seem attractive at the moment. We all need a breather now and then and it’s true that you can always return to college to get your masters degree later, after a much-needed break.
The truth of the matter, however, is that, no matter how badly you want that masters degree later, it’s much harder to return to school than it is to stay there a little while longer. It can be done. It’s done all the time.
But even when it’s done all the time, a return to college to complete a masters degree program after time away from studies is something accomplished by a very few people. Most of the rest of us wish we’d just stayed in school instead because it’s proving really difficult now to get back now.
You can do it. It’s only two more years.
