Make a choice that you’re going to make a choice.
Find your “I’m 77% sure” and give it a try. You won’t know how it’s all going to work out until you start doing the work.
If you’re struggling to figure out what your passion is and what you want to pursue, pick something. If it doesn’t work out, that’s great. Well, maybe not exactly great. But as I write in my book 101 Secrets For Your Twenties, “Your twenties are a game of emerging adult elimination. Every time you cross something off the list, you get closer to naming a winner.”
Don’t worry about everyone's “success” on social media. There’s an ugly side to every amazing picture they’re posting. Don’t let, what I call, Obsessive "Comparison" Disorder take over. Focus on writing your own story instead of trying to live someone else’s.
Climbing through your twenties can feel like being a pug trying to scale a mountain. It’s loud, ungraceful, and it feels like all eyes are on your slow climb.
But one tiny step after another, you’ll make it to the view you forgot you were climbing for. To everyone’s disbelief, including your own. I promise.
