Three Gifts for a 20-Something

shutterstock_110769932What three “gifts” would you give a 20-something if you were a “Forty-Godmother”?  40-something women share three things to help a 20-something get a head start on the confidence to make decisions that are right for themselves. No more woulda, coulda, shoulda.

1. Always ask.

2. Don’t let someone else’s expectations define what you are capable of achieving. Everyone has their own pace and you have to tap into your own inner drive. If you want this, you can do this. Be kind to yourself. You don’t need permission.

3. You will sometimes feel like the ground underneath you is unstable. Where the uncertainties about life’s trajectories are mentally paralyzing you. Keep following your strengths. Eventually you will get to a place that draws on everything that you do well and allows you to feel on solid ground. You will gain confidence and respect. There is just this moment when you say, “Wow, I can do this. I’m good.”
