Don't worry, you are not too young

Do you think that your age says a lot about you? That you're too young? Even worse, do you really think your age tells you what you can or can't do? Okay, you can continue to think that your age limits your chances of reaching high goals and reaching for some dreams because "it's not time yet."

But why?

There's an article from Elaine Mead, she shows that it is never too early to talk about careers, not even for a child, and she remembers that by introducing the subject of profession from the start with the kids, you give them a chance to really start to build their own ideas and opinions, ask questions and find out information about where they want to go in life, even if it is now a decision yet, it is just to start to think bout it. And dreams are necessary, primarily the big dreams, right?

You own your future, as I said, and you have to accept that. If it's hard to hear it, I'm sorry. But you are falling behind if you do not take that responsibility for yourself. In another very interesting article, Katie Burke presents 15 career tips for the 22-year-old
