Do you remember the day when you realized that you were growing up? Maybe it was when you discovered bodily changes, or when you’ve realized that you have more responsibilities to take on than you did the year before. How did you feel about that realization? Were you worried about what the next day would bring? Maybe you are adventurous and are excited about what you can bring to the table as a young adult. Either way you perceive it, it happens to all of us. For many of us, it isn’t always easy. During the time of transition, there are many independent skills I encourage you as young adults to take on. It is never too early to learn about how to save your finances, apply for jobs and schools, and to start creating goals and action plans for your future. It is sad to say that many of the young adults in my community do not carry the knowledge of these basic life skills. If only we could reach out to our communities and express the importance of learning and knowing these things at a reasonable age. I believe that simple life skills such as these are beneficial to young adults and should not be limited. I feel that we should learn as much as we can and teach others what we know. Skills such as interviewing skills and employment skills are necessary to know as well. Knowing these things can assist with the independence of a young adult during the “transitioning process”. Great skills such as these are also impressive and hold a significant value on the journey to one’s success. Take five minutes out of your day to plan your goals in life and create steps toward achieving them. This is the first step towards your success!
