In our world today, next to money, time is the most valuable currency. And as #young millennials, we feel like we have to keep up with the pace of the world in order to catch up with all of our responsibilities. With this, we feel overwhelmed and oftentimes we experience a sense of crisis by trying to remember what are we really supposed to do in life. We are caught in a whirlwind of what we should be doing and what we want to do. If you feel similarly like this, then dear reader, read the facts outlined below:

You are young

The most obvious thing you should remember is that you are young. Thus, you have more energy to spend and time to think.

With this, you have the time to think through what you really want to spend your time with. Don't focus all your time on jobs that pay the bills, spend your youth on things or moments that nourish your soul and make you feel alive as well as those things that require you to be responsible.

Finding your purpose

According to the Guardian, millennials are the least purpose-driven generation based on a recent global survey conducted on 26,000 participants. One factor why it is so is because when it comes to finding what you want to become or your purpose in life, millennials have a hard time in doing so. Sometimes, there's just no single answer to it and this oftentimes lead to dismay and a sense of lost purpose or value. But don't fret, if you cannot determine what or who you want to be, you could at least try to determine what or who you don't want to be.

When you do, the rest will simply follow.

Take risks and learn from mistakes

I know this phrase is trite but it really is true. In a recent study by Net Impact, it showed that millennials expect to make a difference throughout their work. Making a difference whether big or small means you have to contribute something that could benefit someone other than yourself. Being young means you are inexperienced and you have to learn a lot more so use the time to learn new things or focus on your strengths. Don't be afraid to venture int something you know could be good. If you happen to fail, because I guarantee you will fail and commit mistakes, rise and learn from them.

Respect yourself and respect your pacing

What most millennials forget is that every single person has his/her own time to flourish and grow so remember that while somebody's already successful at such a young age, it doesn't mean you're already a failure because you haven't achieved your own goals too. Respect your growth and time. Focus on strengthening your foundations. Don't rush things. Remember that only the house made of rock as a foundation can withstand the storm while others crumble. #millennial #Fast Paced World
