As a Young Professional, maybe you identify with Generation Y, or Gen Z; those born between the years of the latter 1980s, or from the early 1980s to the early 2000s.
There’s so much pressure to figure it out! The right career, the right partner, “get married, buy the house, have kids, live happily ever after….”
“We aren’t our parents’ generation.”
So, what does this mean?
- Maybe you are single, in your 20s or 30s.
- Perhaps you are in your late 20s or early 30s, living at home
- Or, you are in a common-law relationship, and are happy with your romantic relationship, and aren’t considering marriage.
Where ever you are, know that you can define the life you want, without having to conform to the way your parents, or society, wants you to live.
How do you do this?
Here are 5 questions to think about:
1. What do I want? What do I really, really want?
2. Why do I want it?
3. Why don’t I already have it?
4. What behaviour needs to change?
5. How will I (starting tomorrow), make this happen?
Sometimes, listening to the advice of friends, or family, can sway your decisions from the path you really want (or, sometimes they can help you a lot). Life Coaching, or Counselling, can offer you some insights into clearly identifying what’s important to you. Remember, the world is yours.
