As high schoolers we are at the gate of adulthood and we’re learning everything doesn’t always come easy. Sometimes we have to work for it. We don’t get everything handed to us in life. If we did, how would we know how it feels to do something on our own? Or that sweet feeling of triumph when we succeed at something we’ve had to work hard at and probably fail at many times before we find the success we seek?

We all have different goals that we want to accomplish which means different activities make us feel good about ourselves. Some people view their success based on someone else’s idea of success.

If we’re always trying to live up to someone else’s vision of success, then how likely are we to truly find success for ourselves? As young adults we must set clear goals of what is important to us and make something out of that for ourselves in our own ways.

As young adults we like to believe that hard work always gets recognized and is what will pay off for true success in the end. We have to have grit to push through the obstacles to achieve our goals.  Throughout life things will stand in our way of success. If we have a habit of giving up too soon we won’t make it far. We must learn now to work and work and work until we reach our goals. Just as our goals may not always come easy, they may also take a long time to reach so we must be persistent.
