Planning for Your Future

It is never too early to think about your future. Here are a few things I wish I had known when I was younger and I hope that these tips will be useful to anyone who comes across this blogpost.

Figure out what you are good at, your passions, what drives you and make this your focus. Unfortunately, life often tells us we are not good enough and we become so disillusioned that our dreams take a backseat and we say it was unrealistic anyway. If there is something that drives you and that you are passionate about, don’t let it rest. Find courses either online or an evening/ weekend class. Classes are great as they will give you greater knowledge about the subject area while also giving you a better idea of the industry you want to get into. Furthermore, this is a great networking opportunity. So, go ahead and enrol yourself into a course today and see where it lands you....

Let go of anything that is holding you back. It may not always be possible to let go of people or things in your life. For instance if you have nay-say parents, you can’t exactly ditch them but you can control what aspects of your life they are privy to. Don’t allow anyone or anything to get in the way of your dreams. This also includes any negative thoughts that you may be harbouring. Sometime, life doesn’t always go our way. But keep your chin up and keep on moving ahead. All of life’s traumas and hardships are lessons in disguise. So, with all the battles you face, be sure to take a lesson away from them.

Don’t get stuck in one place for too long. Each job you land, you face the opportunity for growth and development. Be sure to take full advantage of this. Be on top of your game in your post and then think of moving on. Each job you have should be better than the last and you can only really do this if your skills have developed and improved.

Be smart with your money. Open a savings account and deposit some money each time you get paid. I’ve got plenty of blog posts about money; be sure to read up on them if you would like to get more valuable advice regarding money, your savings, credit scores, etc.. Even if you are unsure about what you want to do with your savings, still set some money aside; life is unpredictable and it is always sensible to have a financial safety net.

Keep yourself open to advice and suggestions. People are always willing to help those who have ambition and drive. So, if you are a hard worker and you know you will be great in your chosen field, then let people know where you want to go (particularly those who are already doing your dream job). Listen to their advice and allow yourself the chance to be the best version of yourself, doing the job you have always dreamt of and having the life you deserve.
