Hey Teddy,

I hope all is well with you.

I would recommend the following:

Firstly, understand what your short and long term vision and goals are then:

1. Surround yourself with family and friends who are goal getters and continue to motivate you to be your best self
2. Join professional networks that focus on development of individuals as well as networks that focus on your interest areas
3. Watch videos that motivates you to be your best self
4. Read books that motivates you to be your best self

I hope this helps

Thanks

O.M

Hello Teddy, thank you for your question. I believe what you may be looking for is a mentor, this is a person who advises you and listens to you when and if you want to share your thoughts and dreams. Most people look within their family or one of their teachers at school. When you are looking for a mentor try and find someone you would want to grow up to be like, a person you can trust and most of all someone who will tell you the truth. I think a good place to start looking is your guidance counselor she/he will have a list of programs in which you may be suited for. Best of luck.

Hi Teddy,

An important part in life is surrounding yourself with people who are on the same page as you and pushing each other to succeed and be great. Once you are in a circle where people are ambitious, hungry for more, confident and humble that's where you will start to meet people who are there to help you achieve your goals. Surrounding yourself with good people is very important because they can keep you on track and help you achieve your goals and vice versa. There's a famous quote " show me who you hang out with and I will tell you who you will become". This is a powerful quote that relates to your question.

Dear Teddy

It is a great question to ask!

1) Surround yourself with like minded, positive friends who are driven and have goals themselves.

2) Document your goals and measure your own progress against your own goals.

3) Seek out mentors, these could be connects here at career village, a professor at university, your father or uncle or a manager you worked for and looked up to in a summer job. Retrace your connection with the wise people you have been blessed to know up to now.

4) See what kind of sport you like to practice and surround yourself with goal driven friends that will do sport with you and drive you to your next best limit.

5) Volunteer, seek out these opportunities because when you help lift people up, this improves your understanding of where you are and what you want to achieve (to help others more, will usually be the reason) and that is a great reason to be goal driven. Foster a love for helping and sharing.

6) If you are blessed enough to be able to, take a trip and connect with some new friends from abroad who will keep you interested in broadening your horizons.

7) Join meetup groups or professional networks but don't just be someone who consumes, offer your services and join into the community or leadership sittings - that way, you will connect with highly driven professionals.

8) On life advice, your parents know you best and are usually the best mentors. They are wise and know things you will only realize you don't yet know, 20 plus years from now. Don't be shy to deepen that relationship or restore it if needed.

9) A church with a solid home group of supportive believers will be able to give you great guidance on life and purpose driven living.

I hope this helps a bit, the key is, surround yourself with positive but realistic dreamers that pull you up and then, be the person who gives back and pulls others up.

Hi Teddy,

You probably need to talk to a counselor or even a therapist so they can help you find the right path for you.

A counselor/ therapist could give advice on what steps to take, they can also refer you to people and generally a way to get you on the right track. They also talk in detail about what you need to get by. This could also be a regular MD.

If you are lacking advice talk to your family as they knew you the best.

A counselor or advisor at school may also be someone you can turn to for advice.

Following certain people on social media could also be an option for you. Just follow the positive feeds.
