Welcome to The Road to Six Figures Challenge Day 14!
The Six Figures Challenge is a challenge created by entrepreneur, TraVal Shanklin, to document his journey of earning six figures from scratch through business ownership.
Do What’s Best For You
You are important. Take into consideration and listen to advice from your parents, teachers, and peers while also understanding that you have the choice to live the life you want to live. Your parents may not agree with what you want to do, but it’s important for you to listen to what they have to say and make the right decision for your life.
Visualize the life you want to live, then write it down on paper. Create goals that lead you to that life and write them down. Now, take note on where you are right now and if the path you are currently on leads you to the completion of those goals.
For you to make the life you wrote down a reality, you must fully commit to making it happen. By fully committing, you will not let anyone convince you to quit. Your parents may tell you to be more practical, but it is not there life to live. Remember, most of the time they just want you to be secure and have a safety net.
In my case, I promised my Mom I would graduate college because she didn’t. With only 1 year of school left, I’m almost done making that goal my reality. However, she wants me to get a job and have that security she thinks jobs have. I can’t predict the future, but I’m hoping the actions I’m taking with my businesses lead me to the life I want to have. Even if I do get a job, I know it would only be temporary, because I hate having a boss. Being my own boss brings me the most happiness, more than the happiness I could ever have in a job.
At the end of the day, your happiness should be the most important thing to you. Follow your dreams and passions without feeling bad for doing so.
