Hi Tiffanie! Grow mentally, spiritually, emotionally and mentally from where you are right now. Read Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki and Making the Impossible Possible by Robert Strickland Hopefulness and financial self reliance are a pretty solid foundation for building a future.

Simeon’s Answer

Learn how to manage time, money, and relationships.

For time and money, set aside some time to look at the past week or month to see how you spent your time/money and see if it matches your priorities, remembering that fun/destressing is also a priority even if it is a small one. For money, look at what you spend the most money on and see if you can discover ways to save and cut corners on that expense. Also, say no to debt beyond commuter car, modest student debt, and an affordable mortgage. For time, reflect on if you made too much time for things that were not priorities at all. Did you spend time on things just because you felt like you should, but there was no pay off?

For relationships, reach out to new people and practice taking initiative to hang out with and get to know people you have good chemistry with. This will help your personal and professional life. Being a good friend is a life-long skill that you can never perfect and is endlessly complex. Professional relationships are more important than any other metric, i.e. highest grades, prestigious schools, perfect resume, in terms of getting into great jobs and finding career opportunities.

Maura’s Answer

Hi Tiffanie, I am a bit believer in self-awareness, kind of taking inventory of what is important to you and what may be holding you back. Why don't you start a journal and each day (or most days), jot something down that includes what made you happy/fulfilled and what barriers you may have faced to getting the things done that you would have like to. Be careful to keep this light or it may become too cumbersome. The next step can be a plan for the next day. What small (or larger) step am I going to be more accountable in moving towards a better future. Then, after kind of getting grounded, you can start to plan bigger and set goals for your career and your financial situation. Add these goals and necessary steps to your journal and your planning. I suggest you always stay rooted in the day so that the future doesn't appear too out of reach, but each day by accomplishing the day's goals, you naturally bring yourself one step closer to your loftier goals for your future. And while holding yourself accountable is really important, also be forgiving when you slip or lose sight briefly. Start fresh and reconnect with your goals and what you want to accomplish today. I like the previous answers too and I'll be checking into the suggested reading! Good luck!

Always be a student of life and learning. Do not push off tomorrow what you have the ability to accomplish today! It’s said best in the film “Coco; Seize your Moment!” There is no better time than the present. “Nothing is more expensive than a missed opportunity.? H. Jackson Brown Jr.

Joel’s Answer

A great question, Tiffanie! I think you're on the right track by simply asking that question.
As someone who has/is also going through the same "life questions", I have learned that listening to others (ie mentors, coaches, parents, friends, etc.) who have a lot of experience is extremely helpful. As much as we like to think we know it all growing up, our parents and those who have raised us know more and have more experience. Talk to them about their own lives and experiences. Look at what they have done to be happy.

Brainstorming is a great way to start planning for your future, and receiving advice from others, especially those who care about you, is invaluable.

Good luck! And remember that life is a journey, so learn from all of your experiences, good and bad!
