The Way To Go
Selecting a site is the first step. What is it you want to do? Select a career that is in demand and still be there in the next 20 years.
Next is the blueprint, The Plan. Your plan of action. What to do and How to do to reach your goals.
The solid Foundation is next. Get yourself ready to learn all there is to learn and more.
Enlist to the best training you can get and become an authority in your field. If there is no money for studies, do not use that as an excuse. Find a job and most importantly, save every cent to get what you want, many successful people started with nothing. Put your pride in your pocket. Don’t let Image stand in your way, just do it! People will certainly have more respect for your determination.
Start building your Empire, brick by brick and step by step. Never stop learning and always apply what you learn.
It is best to make a decision that will last a lifetime. Any success is built with desire and determination. For that reason, so many young adults take a year called a Gap Year. Clear their minds to make the transition to adulthood smoother and to decide what their future will be. Some select a few options, do some temporary work at each, therefore be certain of what they want.
The Four Cornerstones
It is wise making sure to have the right mindset, attitude and the ultimate four cornerstones in place.
~ Desire to make your dream come true.

~ Discipline, to keep going until you reach success.
Search and research to be able to make the best-informed decisions you can. Take time and make sure to build on a solid foundation, my dear with the best knowledge and experience.
The whole wide world is waiting with lots of opportunities. You have a new serious adventure on hand because building the foundation for your future is of utmost importance. Success and best of all, happiness is depending on your choices. Choose wisely and go and get it, my dear. Approach this phase of your life on your best foot.
Effect of the Past
Growing up, you were part of a family, therefore being exposed to certain rules and values. This behaviour had a huge impact on who you are. Now it is time to find your way and set your own standards.
Families tend to have family traditions, some are good and some are not so good. All I know is, when it is as a result, restricting your thoughts and mind, it is not good.
It is also part of a system from schools and churches, for instance, to manipulate people in a subtle way to fit into a social pattern. Walking the streets like obedient faceless ghosts, subsequently, too afraid to do or say something out of the ordinary.
Coming of age, entering this new phase you, have to parent and guide your own life now. No one taught you how to, therefore, the easiest way is to follow what you have learned and saw at home, repeating the same pattern.
The biggest influence in anyone’s life is the cultural and family habits. Some of these habits form part of a control system for generations, which keeps you from being who you want to be. You get taught not to think for yourself by the system. Being strict, with the do-as-I-say attitude, was the norm when our generation grew up therefor so many adults are unhappy because of that attitude, resulting in an inferiority complex.
In the past it might have worked, but most definitely not with the Millennium kids. Knowledge is the key, and above all, your own strong opinions. Select and find your own values and habit pattern. Love yourself and build a strong relationship with your inner self. You have become a different person, most of all, you have your own vision and opinion.
To build the foundation of your future of choice, first of all, to guide you to find your own way, it is very important.
Vision of my Future
Let’s sweep your mind a clean slate my dear, in fact, just keep the good manners, and most of all, the integrity you have learned at home.
Break loose, but, stay the loving family member, become your own confident person, without judgement. Every generation has to change and adapt for survival, therefore, your parents went through the same process with their parents years ago, don’t feel alone in your struggle.
Walk away from the flock of sheep, and best of all, become unique.
Start building your basis on knowledge and experience, my darling. I can not stress that enough! Be specific and name your destination, furthermore, what are your goals and how you want to achieve it. Very important is, to put a date when you will achieve your goals.
Foundation to your Future
Begin At The Goal Post
A suggestion my dear, where do you see yourself in forty years time, above all, when and where will wish to retire? I know I know … you are not thinking of that now at this stage of your life, but you should.
Did you know, the main purpose of you getting a job, therefore working all your life, is to secure a good retirement plan?
No one realises or even think of it in that way.
How would you hope to spend your life at my age? Living a financially carefree happy life, for instance having enough money to live your dream comfortably. In contrast, you might be living in someone’s backyard waiting for handouts?
Is desire big enough to get what you want, first of all, find the WHY?
Have the Desire, Discipline and Determination to achieve it, most importantly, Dedication holds the key.
Having the correct mindset as well as, perseverance is absolutely important.
Recognition for Success
• To get recognition in life, first of all, you have to become an expert in your field of knowledge and an authority with experience, darling Thinette. Search, research, learn and train relentlessly to have the ability to be the expert. Apply the knowledge you gained and use it in experiences on your way.
Therefore, never stop reading, make it your mission to become an authority with the best skills. You will earn trust and respect with knowledge and experience.
• Never be forward with your knowledge.
• Listen and Observe.
• Always be the last to speak.
Building the foundation to your future my dear is, first of all, have a plan with goals. Setting goals, most importantly, goals with deadlines. It is the only way to achieve success.
