6 ways to prepare for your future.

Your thoughts (31)

There’s more to growing up than finally doing things you were not allowed to do. You also have to think seriously about your future - you’re never too young to start planning for the future.

Setting goals
A goal is something you want to achieve in the future. Setting goals will help give you direction. To set goals, figure out what it is that you want to achieve in future, and have a plan to help you get there. For instance, I knew I wanted to achieve my matric, so I set out all of the steps I needed to take to get there, like studying hard.

Be realistic
Think about where to start and how long it will take to achieve your goal. Say you want to ace that math test. This means attending extra classes and spending a lot more time revising.

Have an open mind
Having an open mind means that you’re willing to try something which will take you out of your comfort zone. This will help you try out different things and easily adapt in different situations.

Discipline
Discipline is about being able to control your feelings and not giving in to your weaknesses. Let’s say you have been saving for a laptop but see a dress you like. Discipline will remind you that you have a bigger priority than getting a new dress no matter how much you want it right now!

Inspiration
Having someone successful to look up to will give you something to work towards. You can learn how they do their work, where they started and the determination they put into being successful.

Finding your passion
What is it that you love doing? For example, If you have a hobby, like sewing, read up on fashion designers, find out where they studied, what the career involves so you know what you are looking forward to in the future.

Hi Springster. I'd advise that you start looking for reputable talent management agencies online. You can Google them and call to ask what their requirements are and do that as a side hustle. It's very hard getting into the industry and rejection is part of the game but if you're resilient and focus on the end goal then you'll be just fine.

Hi Naazlei. Thanks for your comment. I'd advise you visit a sewing class so you can learn the basics or cutting, sizing and sewing garments together. When you have the knowledge then you can start creating your own clothing. Do some research of the closest fashion schools or sewing classes in your area.

I want to be a media personality actually a radio host but I don't know which subjects to choose now that I'm in grade 9...care to help?

Hi Teedosh. I don't know if the subjects you choose in high school are related to being a radio host. After matriculating you can consider studying something in the media field that will assist your dream to become a radio host. Hard work and determination will get you there. Maybe you can start an internship at a radio station to see how they do things and learn the ropes of the business.

Hi Lizy. Thanks for your comment. I think it's great that you'd like to pursue chemical engineering and that it's absolutely possible to chive this without being locked in the house studying all the time. Life is a balance and although you'll need to commit to what you're studying, I think if you create a good study timetable and you aren't a party animal that you can achieve whatever you put your mind to.
