Three Gifts for a 20-Something

WIshlist-3 Wishes ImageEvery time I interview a 40-something woman for 40:20 Vision I ask them what three “gifts” would they give a 20-something if they were a “Forty-Godmother”. In essence, three things to help you get a head start on perspective and gain the confidence you need to make decisions that are right for you. No more woulda, coulda, shoulda.


1.  If you don’t know exactly what you want to be when you’re 21, it’s okay. You have time to discover your way and figure things out and so when you see 30, under 30 list, okay you might be discouraged for a few minutes but then stop because you can eventually get to where you want to go even if you start later if you are determined enough.


2. You only need one person in your life that believes in you. Find your cheerleader.


3. Sometimes a step back is a step forward. What appears to be a step back isn’t really a step back. It positions you to do better than you could currently for what you want to do. Particularly if there is no room for growth where you currently are.
