Living is not only about waking up, taking a shower, scrolling through the news feed on Facebook, checking through a status on WhatsApp or other pages of your social media.
Living requires taking up certain responsibilities, challenges, and becoming a strong being as a man, lady, or young adult. Taking up these challenges and responsibilities stretches you into growth and development.
What then must every youth or teenager know?
- There is a purpose to fulfill
Aspiring to become a champion requires you have clarity of purpose, vision, and mission. You have been created by the creator (God) to fulfill a particular task. As you get into the fulfillment of purpose, you’ll be far from oppression and depression. My coach will say, “if you stay in purpose, you’ll not be depressed”.
- Only the Visionary shake the world
As a youth or young adult (teenager) who wants to shake the word, you must be a visionary. A visionary is a person that has positive ideas for the future and to shake the word means making impacts.
- Growth and Development must be given a chance to become relevant
A person who never takes growth and development seriously will never attract relevantly. To be relevant, you just grow!
- It is important to fix the skill economy
It is no longer news that we are in the economy where your skill is what displays your ability. Forget about your course of study in school, get to learn a skill and hone it but as you hone your skill, learn how to monetize it.
- Volunteering and Valuable connection is a path to idea generation
At this present stage of yours, associating with those that won’t add value to you is a bad idea.
Your Notion is also affected by your Association.
With it all, it is important that you remember God in all your dealings for he shows the way to go and the path to tread.
Remember [earnestly] also your Creator [that you are not your own, but His property now] in the days of your youth, before the evil days come or the years draw near when you will say [of physical pleasures], I have no enjoyment in them (Ecclesiastes 12:1 AMP).
Take these words to heart and act upon it.
