Building a brighter future doesn’t mean one has to attain a certain level of monetary gain or credentials. There’s no precise way to measure the amount of success one must achieve in order to determine how bright their future will be. More so, it's about building a future and lifestyle that consists of stability, financial security, a healthy and safe environment (for oneself and family), self-fulfillment and gratification, etc.
One person’s aspirations may differ from another. Often times, a person’s upbringing (good or bad) can influence how bright their future turns out to be. Hardships and adversity can fuel a person’s ambition to create a better life for themselves and their loved ones. Growing up in an environment where family members have paved the way for you to be successful by demonstrating what success looks like through strong work ethic can also have an influence on how bright of a future one may have. It often starts with the parents. They set the precedence of building a brighter future by their hard work and dedication. This can have a significant impact on their children’s future because they may aspire to become successful like their parents.
My previous blogs within this series (Don’t Give UP, Don’t Beat Yourself Up, If You Believe It You Can Achieve It) talks about ways to get there. They’re filled with information and tools that will help you along the way of building a brighter future.
Listed below are some additional tips that can assist you along your way:
There’s not just one specific way as to what a brighter future looks like or consists of. This may vary for different people based on several factors (i.e. upbringing, beliefs, aspirations and ambition, circumstances, etc.). What’s most important is that one puts forth their very best effort in being the best that they can be. If they do that, then naturally, their future will be as bright as a shining star.
You hold the key to your future.
