Trust me, I know what it feels like when you have a dream but life won’t let you live it. I had to learn that the hard way. I graduated university with big hopes and big dreams. Then reality set in. When you have to pay your bills, it feels like your only option is to take what’s given. Five months ago I was in a rut. Stuck in a job I didn’t want to make a career out of, and doing nothing to get where I needed to be. But five months later I’m living my dream, so let me show you how you can achieve goals easily:

1. Never wait for later, do it now. 

Six months after graduation I was stuck and unhappy. I felt like so much time had gone by and I had done nothing when everyone seemed to be doing something. If you’ve ever felt stuck in a rut, then you will know the feeling helplessness. But just think the last six months flew by, which means the next six will be just as quick. So the time is now. I remembered the girl that I was and the dreams she had and realized what was I waiting for? Your dream life won’t come to you. If you view time this way and change your mindset you won’t let it slip by. You have to take a risk. What have you got to lose?

2. There’s always room to improve

The truth is, employers like that you went to uni, but without real-life experience in your field, you won’t get the job. Leaving uni, you think you have this renound skill set, but in reality, you’re just educated. Thinking I knew everything stopped me from growing. Being unemployed, and no work experience is enough to keep anyone down. But instead, work for your success. There are so many online courses you can do, books or seminars you can attend. These are all things you can show to an employer to show them you’re committed even though you’ve been out of work, you didn’t stop working on yourself. It doesn’t matter your age, an old dog can always learn new tricks! You just have to want to!

3. Don’t hate another woman because she’s successful 

We’re all for female empowerment. But I think one thing we’re all guilty of is being jealous of another girl because she has something you don’t. Especially when it comes to your career. An old friend you see on Facebook has just landed her dream job, and you’re nowhere further. It’s human nature to feel like this. But if there’s one thing I’ve learned to do is use women. I see every girl as my girlfriend now. Lean on each other, and build social connections. They could have some great life advice for you or connections. See everything as an opportunity and open yourself up to things you usually wouldn’t.
