Over the summer I was inspired to ask my friends on Facebook what skills a young person needs for the real world? I was surprised over the response! Over 40 people responded with wisdom! Here is what they said you need to know to be successful in life:
Life Skills like cooking, cleaning, and money
Work/People Skills - Be Able to work with people!
How to study/research
Giving back to your community
How to think on your feet
Adapt - Especially when something does not go as planned
Take responsibility for your actions
Do Not Stress
Suck it up!
This is advice from adults who have been in your shoes! Life is too short to learn everything on your own!
