Being Successful at a Young Age

This has been bugging my mind lately. All I keep dreaming of is being successful at a young age. I just think it’s too late for me now because I’ll be turning 19 in November. I know that might sound crazy to y’all and you’re probably thinking I’m still young. For some reason, I feel some “old.” This is probably because I feel more mature than my actual age. It’s funny that I mention that because I always say that “I’m a grown lady trapped in a child’s body,” as years go by this starts to make even more sense to me. Honestly, I wish I would’ve been well established by now. I know success takes time though. I guess I’m always dreaming about what my future will be like. I don’t want to live a life struggling and stressing out about how I’m going to survive and get bills paid on time. My only wish in life is to be living comfortable without it coming from a bad outcome. What I mean by that is I don’t want my success to be based on anything bad happening. This post might be pointless to many but I had to express what’s on my mind in some type of way.

  1. You are not alone, am 20 and it bugs me a lot that I still depend on my parents for my upkeep. Sometimes I wonder if I am trying to move too fast.

  2. Well I will turn 40 in November and I haven’t gotten to where I want to be yet, lol and I’m old but I’m not giving up! It will happen honey, don’t give up! Have a great Monday!

  3. I think a lot of people feel this way. When I turned 25, I panicked. I felt like I had accomplished nothing in my life, which was false: I had been sustaining myself since I was 18, gotten a bachelor’s degree in translation, found a good, I was engaged to the love of my life… I had also made good progress in my number one passion, which is writing.

    However, I had greater expectations for myself. I would have wanted to have written at least one complete novel by the time I was 25 and I failed. I will be 29 very soon and I had the goal of publishing a book before I’m 30. I know now it’s not going to happen, but it’s ok. Once I stopped focused on the end goal, I could start focusing on the path right in front of me. This allowed me to make much greater progress towards my goals than focusing on the mountain ever did; that only made me trip and fall.

    Don’t expect to have this whole “adulthood” thing figured out in your early twenties. It can cause a lot of frustrations. Even just “living comfortably” can be a struggle, whatever your background is.

    1. Yes I try to tell myself that I still have time to reach my goals. I guess I’m so eager to finally live my dreams I’m rushing everything. Thanks for making me think I’m a different point of view

  4. I can totally relate to you and I wonder why some people feel this way. I think it’s the medias.The stories of young succes lives up to several of the news criteria so they spread, you find them and you want to copy them. Don’t let the medias ruin your happiness and satisfaction with your life. Keep your head held high Desi 🙂
