5 Reminders for Young Working Adults

As a young employee, I can sometimes feel down and discouraged when navigating the challenges of the workplace and my career. It’s easy to lose perspective and get caught up in the relentlessness of it all. It’s so important that we remember the 5 following points:

1. Relax- you are doing fine

Being goal-oriented and driven often comes with striving and a constant desire to do better- and this can be tiring and frustrating. Remembering you are on a journey is important. You don’t need to have reached every goal before you can rest and relax.

2. Tell yourself ‘well done’

Recognise and acknowledge your successes, regardless of how small they may seem. Revel in those microvictories and don’t wait for someone else to say ‘well done’ before feeling proud of yourself.

3. Life is not a race

Don’t compare yourself or worry about how you are fairing in relation to others. You don’t need to be at certain life stages at certain ages.

4. Forget the haters

People will always make you feel some type of way, whether intentionally or unintentionally. But it’s important to ‘stick to your guns’ and stay true to yourself. Not all advice or words of wisdom need to be accepted.

5. Don’t be afraid to be confident

You don’t have to have everything together in order to be confident. You don’t need to be perfect before you can be confident and heck, you don’t need permission to be confident before you can be confident.
