Three Wishes for a Twenty-Something (12)

Every time I interview a 40-something woman for 40:20 Vision I ask them what 3 “gifts” would they give a 20-something if they were a “Forty-Godmother”. Here’s one woman’s gifts:


The strength to put yourself first. Put yourself first in every aspect of that in what you want to do, in who you take care of and who you nurture. It needs to be you first.


Security. Don’t be scared of the future. Take it one day at a time. Don’t worry about tomorrow.


Acceptance. Accept your failures no matter what they are. No matter how bad you may possibly fail or feel that you’ve failed in something, you have to twist that around and say to yourself what did you learn from it and what are you gonna do differently. We all fail. Everybody fails. It’s just human nature. I think that true failure is not learning anything from the failure.
